The Sound of Snow

This review is by guest reviewer/blogger Sharon.

The Sound of SnowThe Sound of Snow – Katherine Kingsley

Due to being disgraced, Joanna left England but on finding out about the death of her dear cousin, she returns to England to make sure that the cousin’s son is in good hands.  When she gets there, she finds that the son has regressed and does not talk or do anything that little boys should, and discovers that the boy’s dad does not know or seem to care.  That quickly changes when Joanna confronts him about it and she is given charge of the boy instead.  There are many battles between the two of them which create chemistry between them and we watch to see how things develop between them.

There are many mysteries and untruths that have to be unfolded in this book before everything can be resolved in a satisfactory matter.  That said, I felt that the book could have ended earlier than it did as they would resolve one thing, and then another issue would pop up that had to be dealt with.  The last one that came up did not need to happen and could have been left out entirely.

The book was decent, but as I said above, the story went on for longer than needed.  While the book is still under 400 pages, I don’t think it needed to be that long; they easily could have removed 50 pages of the book.
