Spring in Snow Valley by: Cindy Roland Anderson, Jeanette Lewis, Cami Checketts, Taylor Hart, Kimberly Montpetit and Lucy McConnell

Spring is in the air and so is romance in the small town of Snow Valley, Montana.

Operation—Kiss the Girl, Cindy Roland Anderson

Ivy Baker is doomed to marry a man she only pretends to be in love with to save the family ranch. Since she isn’t marrying for love, Ivy secretly creates a kissing wish list composed of scenes from the romance books she loves to read. She hopes to experience at least one kiss from her list before she becomes officially engaged and seals her fate. When she travels to Snow Valley to help her aunt recover from knee surgery, Ivy finds herself falling for Kellen Thomas, an irresistible cowboy she should avoid. By chance Kellen finds Ivy’s list, and decides to make it his mission to help her fulfill her bucket list, turning her world upside down and making Ivy want to choose her heart over duty.

Cynthia Eddington never thought she'd return to Snow Valley after a string of bad luck forced the sale of her beloved farm there. But here she is, about to start a new life with her children, Jackson and Anoria. Cynthia plans to focus on her career and her family; she's not looking for romance and she's definitely not looking for sexy cowboy, Colby Schroder.

Running from the Cowboy, Cami Checketts

Missy Horman escaped an abusive marriage and returns to Snow Valley to help her father deal with her emotionally disturbed mother. Volunteering to teach a youth Sunday school class seems like a good way to get out of her comfort zone—until she ends up kissing Porter Wilson in front of a bunch of teenagers. Embarrassed, and secretly thrilled, by the kiss, she writes Porter off as a playboy. But, Missy wasn't the only one affected and Porter's new mission in life is to prove that there's more to him than flirting and world-tilting kisses. He wants to show her that a true cowboy knows how to treat a lady and, if Missy can't keep her wits about her, she might just let him.

The Bet, Taylor Hart

When Destiny Morningstar gets blackmailed into spending her spring break in Snow Valley, the last thing she’s looking for is a date, especially not with Adam and Chase Moon—two attractive and athletic brothers. But soon she finds herself tangled up in a dating spree that includes a flag football game, swinging around the barn dance, and hiking to Snow Valley's romantic hot springs with the town's most eligible bachelors. At every turn she's within kissing distance of one of the delectable Moon men. When she discovers she’s been part of some bet fueled by sibling rivalry and overactive egos she has to make a decision—forgive them both or miss out on the best thing that’s ever happened to her.

Sealed with a Kiss, Kimberley Montpetit

Jessica Mason and Pastor James are struggling to make their long-distance relationship work between Snow Valley and New Orleans where Jessica dances with the local ballet company. When April Murphy, a war widow with a child, shows up in Snow Valley, James reluctantly begins to wonder if he and Jessica are really meant to be. April would make the perfect pastor’s wife and he’d have an instant family and the stability he craves. But he can’t get the spitfire Jessica out of his mind and when she returns to Snow Valley to accept an inheritance, her male ballet partner in tow, the love triangle takes on a new edge. Can Jessica and James figure out how to create a family while living in two different states—or do they allow their hearts to move on and forget the passion they once shared?

Operation Kiss the Girl by:Cindy Roland Anderson

I loved this story! What a great opening to this set! We all fell in love with Kellen in the Summer in Snow Valley books so it was great to see him get his story. I loved Kellen and Ivy's story. The Instant attraction they had for each other was much like my husband and I. I thought it was awesome that Kellen, a former military man, made it his mission to give Ivy what she wanted. Isn't that how life is supposed to be.

Always striving to be there for each other and to make each other happy I any way possible. I also loved how the Author made references to Oh Come on Be Faithful by Cami Checketts because I love that book as well! Great Job Cindy I look forward to reading more from you!

Love Coming Late by: Jeanette Lewis

What a sweet story. I loved how this one was a little out of the norm. This is my take on it....This story shows that sometimes your heart wants what it wants. Even if people, the world, your family who ever see things differently only you can decide what is best for you. Sometimes you may takes some bumps to get there but in the end only happiness matters. Awesome job Jeanette loved it!

Running From the Cowboy by: Cami Checketts

Cami's books are the best! Anyone who follows my blog or reads my reviews know shes one of my favorites! Our humor is very much the same it seems and I think that is why I  relate to her books so well. I loved this story. Sometimes it is really hard to overcome a bad relationship. You definitely form in your mind what you would never want again. Missy wanted nothing to do with cowboys. When she meets Porter she wants nothing to do with him or another relationship. I love the bond they form and the relationship they have. This is a great clean romance. Great job Cami as always I loved it!

The Bet by: Taylor Hart

This story had it all. A love/hate relationship that is also a love triangle between brothers...

Destiny is struggling after tragedy in her life and the last thing she needed was a jerk like Adam. I loved this story and how it had you pulling for the one that normally wouldn't win. I love that she was able to find closure and happiness. I don't want to spoil more than I have. Trust me it's a Great book!

Sealed with a Kiss by:Kimberley Montpetit
This novella had me guessing till the end. I loved the plot twist and the decision between the 2 guys. For a while there I wasn't sure Jessica would end up with the guy I wanted her too. I'm all for a sappy love story but it's awesome to throw a twist in there once in a while. We have been following Pastor James and Jessica for awhile so it was fun to see their story finished up. Loved it! Another awesome Snow Valley Romance!

Romancing a Husband by: Lucy McConnell

I think this was my favorite story of the set. Although I am a sucker for a good romance story, I am married, and I know that everyday isn't a fairy tale for sure. This story was a good reminder that life is hard. Things come along that throw us off, things take us out of our comfort zones and they require hard work and dedication. It is also important to remember that we do need to romance our spouses. We get into a routine and we forget about all the fun of the 'honeymoon faze' when our entire focus was to bring each other happiness. It was nice to read something a little different for a change that would give us a nice kick of reality! I think we can all use a good reminder once in a while and if your relationship ever gets to a low dark place like Natalie and Eli's you won't ever forget how important even the little things are because it takes a lot of effort on both parts to bring it back to somethings great! I can totally relate! Again I loved this book it was an awesome change of pace. Great job!
