Snow Country (A Copper Island Novel Book 1) by Kristin Neva

Snow Country (A Copper Island Novel Book 1)

JILTED THREE WEEKS BEFORE HER WEDDING, Beth Dawson escapes sunny California for the snowy Upper Peninsula of Michigan, where a young State Trooper challenges her to let go of her rules for Christian courtship. Her domineering mother chides her to stay single and wants her to talk her ailing grandmother into moving to Los Angeles. 

COPPER ISLAND averages over 200 inches of snow annually. The fictional towns of Douglass and Quincy mirror the actual towns of Houghton and Hancock, and although the names of businesses and persons are imaginary, the history, landmarks, and spirit of the region described in the novel are real. 

My Thoughts:
As a Michigander, I loved this book! It was sweet, romantic and the characters were great! I found this book to be very detailed with great character depth and I love the small town charm feel to this book, which makes me want to read the rest of the books in this series. I cannot wait to read the second book after this book. The author did a great job of the historical context too, which made this book that more enjoyable and I found Beth to be someone relatable. Overall, I think this book is a great romantic story and I highly recommend this novel. It is a quick, lite and lovely read.  I give this book 5/5 stars. A favorable review was not required and I was given a copy by the author for my honest review. 

About the Author:

KRISTIN NEVA grew up in an old farmhouse on Copper Island in Michigan's Keweenaw Peninsula where the hard-working, rugged residents persevere through harsh winter weather, sustained by friendship and family, surrounded by natural beauty. As an adult, she lived in the Chicago and Milwaukee areas for seventeen years before returning to her hometown with her husband and two children. 
Kristin’s first book, Heavy, co-authored with her husband, Todd, journeys through the first year after Todd’s ALS diagnosis as the Nevas struggle to find meaning, hold on to faith, and discover joy in the midst of pain. 

It is this life experience that brings authenticity to Kristin’s fictional works as she explores themes of love, loss, and faith on Copper Island.
