Laura's rating: 4 of 5 iScream Cones
Second Snowfall is the second book in the Elton Hall Chronicles series and can be read as a standalone. This is also the first book I have had the opportunity to read by this author. Although I did like the story I struggled with nearly the first half of the book. I was constantly picking it up and putting it down. I didn't feel connected to the characters and I almost felt like I was reading about high-schoolers.
Annabelle has been in love with her best friend for so long, but has never had the guts to tell him. It doesn't help that he has a girlfriend. When a new guy walks into her life and shows interest she can't help but feel flattered and excited at the prospect of finally having a boyfriend. For Me Annabelle comes across as somewhat immature and naive. She is always thinking ten steps ahead and not about right now. She struggles with trusting Kingsley and makes excuses for him. She wants a boyfriend so badly that she overlooks the concern of her friends.
Kingsley is an egotistical pain-in-the-ass! Talk about an over-inflated ego. He is constantly taking about how good he is at everything. He boasts about his job as a fireman and he is sneaky as hell. He is also extremely overprotective and a tad overbearing. I get that he likes Annabelle a lot, but the fact that he more or less calls her his after such a short time is crazy. I loved that he wasn't forceful and pushy with her and did have concern for her safety. He was just so full of himself that it sort of turned me off to his character.
Second Snowfall has an underlying story going on. Violet, who is from book one play a large part in this story as well and her past has come back to haunt her. Annabelle and Jason (their best friend) do everything they can to help her through this ordeal and to keep her safe. So, basically you get two stories within the pages of this book. It is a decent, quick read, that had me frustrated with how quickly Annabelle jumps from one issue to another, but all is done with an HEA.
