Rating: You NEED to read
Reviewed by: Val

Her fiance skipped town two days before the wedding. Two years later Miranda Stevens is ready to move on. Brady Watson’s anger toward the driver responsible for his wife's death three years ago has turned into grief. Will Miranda help Brady find the strength to relinquish the past and embrace a new beginning? Can the answer be found in something as simple as a cluster of Jonquil blooms?


There was an instant attraction between Miranda and Brady that they both wanted to deny at first because both of them had been deeply hurt by past relationships. My heart ached for Brady when I saw how raw and blinding his pain was at the loss of his wife Celia and I loved that both Miranda and Brady had strong ties to God relying on Him heavily to get through their problems. The part that really got me was the humor and easy rapport Brady and Miranda had with each other. This was a book that I loved from the moment I started reading. Ms. Brooks has written a touching love story that includes a lesson that I believe all of us on some level need to learn. I can feel confident in knowing that my teen daughter can read this book as it is a book that shows clean, sweet romance in it's finest form. I highly recommend this book to those who are wanting a fast read with meaning, fun and that cuddly, warm fuzzy feeling. I found Jonquils in the Snow to be an exhilarating, touching and humorous read. This is a not to miss book!
