Snowdrops and Stardust Reviews

    “Wherever I lay my hat, that’s my home…”One of my favorite situations in romance is when two people who didn’t know well each other before, get trapped in a house while there is a huge snowstorm outside. For me, it is always the perfect setting for the couple to get to know each other, share personal details about themselves, become intimate and fall in love.Unfortunately, in “Snowdrops and Stardust” even though we have the perfect setting, there wasn’t any of that excitement the main characters usually feel in the beginning of their relationship. There weren’t any moments where they were awkward and flustered around each other, I couldn’t really feel their emotional connection, because there wasn’t much time where the main characters spent it simply talking. The entire relationship turned extremely sexual extremely fast. All the hero could think about was sexual things about the heroine, whose winter clothes somehow managed to slide down and almost reveal parts of her body. There was no progression at all in their relationship, they just met, got trapped because of the snowstorm and the very next day they simply had sex. The hero all of a sudden was ready to change his entire life for her. I think this story was very rushed and there was no time for the characters and their connection to develop, even the ending seemed unsatisfying to me because there wasn’t any time for anything to be resolved.

    Snowdrops and Stardust is a short story about feeling smothered in a world where no privacy or people falling at your feet can make you want to escape.Aiden Delaney is a very popular star who sings for a living. He loved the life of a celebrity until the shine wore off. He hitches a ride with a truck driver to take him anywhere expect to the next sold out show. When the truck stops and he jumps out, he realizes that he is all alone with the silence, the snow, and the darkness. Marianne owns Three Chimneys. They specialize in jellies, jams, cakes, tea time, and an owner who is fighting her own "hell." She is burning objects in a bonfire when Aiden startles her. He is easily recognized, but she doesn't mention it. She knew that look of stress and exhaustion all too well. Burning the items went by faster when he helped bring the stuff to the fire. In return he is paid in warm food. Over food they talk about the snow and the failing buisiness. Aiden realizes that this is the joy he has been missing. He felt the urge of desire for her and was not about to make a move out of respect. That choice burned in his belly as he fell asleep.Snowdrops are small beauiful flowers that are meant to be enjoyed growing wild and not adorning a table. Aiden and Marriane get closer physically and emotionally. He takes a leap of faith in hopes that he gets the answer he wants and easing the pain for them both. He is dismayed when he found that the ex was back in town. Who would win her heart? Often times we are overwhelmed with pressures of our personal reality and seek respite elsewhere. It can an emotional trip or a physical trip. People take vacations, engage in Roll Playing Games with alternate persona. Some people can feel refreshed and ready to step back into their lives with renewed joy. Some people can find peace from a short time or will search forever for that peace.This book is great reminder for me knowing that whenever I feel overwhemed in my life, I can escape into another life another destiny and still be back in time for work the next day. We all get tired and need a break, it is wonderful to know that we are not alone. Aiden's character begins to transfor in just a short time after leaving the city and running away for a weekend. He now felt secure in his future in music and was ready to show those fans ho he appreciates their loyalty. Marriane thanks Aiden for the transformation that she too went through over the weekend. She thanks him for the stardust that he sprinkled in her life. One choice changed the course of two lives.As an added bonus, the author incluided 2 short stories that have the same amount of hidden meaning inside. I just wished that these stories were longer, but understand that it could loose meaning in the end. I was given this book to review from the author/publisher through Reading Alley and in exchange I give my unbiased opinion.

    Snowdrops and Stardust by Sue Lilley is a short, romantic story. The story starts off ominous where you are not entirely sure what is going on. It is like it started in the middle of a story and you missed what happened prior to where the story starts. However, that can be typical of short stories. It did get back to and explain the story from where the reader is dropped, which is nice. I think it added an element of suspense to the book, wondering what happened. My only real complaints are how the book ended and that it was from the third person. The ending left you wanting more, but that is not necessarily a bad thing. The end makes you think that there is a second one, but it is still a good ending that leaves you satisfied if there is nothing else after it. The third person aspect is something personal for me. I am not a fan of most third person storytelling because it is harder to do well enough to get a reader in the story, but I think Lilley did it well enough to keep the short story interesting. I would recommend this to anyone who is interested in light, love stories.

    Aiden is a lost soul that needs a change. He escapes his life for a brief period. It is during this escape that he encounters Marianne, who is dealing with her own life issues. His interlude with Marianne leads Aiden to some truths about himself and his lifestyle. With this epiphany, he seeks our Marianne only to be faced with a ghost from her past that may threaten what he though he found.Snowdrops and Stardust was well written. The story kept moving and kept my attention. However, with that being said, I wanted more. Some sections jumped a little to fast for me.The ending was well thought out and realistic. Rather than the happy ever after that tends to become cookie cutter, the reader is given a real ending. It leaves the reader wanting to know more of the characters' stories. What will happen next? I would love to see Lilley write a sequel to this book. I look forward to reading more by this author.

    This was an interesting book. The characters were likable and relatable, and I really enjoyed the story. The only thing that bothered me is that I wasn't exactly happy with the ending. I mean, it ended on a good note, I suppose, but... I just felt cheated. I wanted an HEA. We got a sort of Happy For Now, with a lot of unanswered questions. That's why it's only three star instead of four. I'm hoping to see more from the characters in the future where we actually see them get their HEA. I was gifted an exclusive copy.

    Three days is never enough. This was a short and sweet romance about a confused rock star and a country girl who end up stranded together in a blizzard. They awaken feelings in each other as they discover things about themselves. The first part was a little confusing to me and the last part left me wanting more. Overall a well written book with likable characters. I received an arc copy and voluntarily chose to review this book

    I received an ARC from Exclusive ARC and I choose to review this book. Thanks. This is a short story it's only 46 pages long. Reads quick. Maiden made me sad, I felt bad for him. Really liked him. Felt like Marianne used him. I give this a 3.5 rating. Probably not for everyone but I found it different and interesting.

    A lovely and engaging read (although I would have loved a sequel) that has a realistic ending and features lively characters, this is a great read if you want something to sink into before bed. The writing is tight and the characters are realistic and easy to sympathize with, and the setting and descriptions are lovely.

    I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book. This was the first book I've read from the author and it was good. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was because I felt like there was more that could have been told and it was very short. It was a little different read for me as it kinda went to third person but all in all, I would definitely read more from this author.

    New Author to me and I know I will be looking for more of her books. The story line just kept me turning the pages I had to know what was going to happen to Aiden and Marianne. This is a short story of only 46 pages, so a great bedtime read. I received a free copy of this book and voluntarily chose to review it.
