Rachel- Goodbye Borders
Riley was discharged from the military and comes home to try and get his mother to sell her inn. Grace is living and working at the inn. Having met each other in rehab, Grace and Corrine became friends. (Not that rehab, both were getting PT- Grace for a broken leg, Corrine for a hip replacement).
I would have liked this better if I had liked Riley more. He annoyed me. What kind of person gets injured and doesn't tell their family? (So not to worry her). Then, because of the injury, gets discharg

I really liked this story. I listened to the audiobook and loved the narrator. The story itself was sweet and charming. Riley comes home to The Snowflake Inn to see his mom after being medically discharged from the marines. He does not plan on staying though. Grace is a chef and is working at the Inn after meeting Riley’s mom Corinne and becoming fast friends. She hopes to one day open her own business but on a much smaller scale than the Inn is. Riley and Grace are both looking for a place to c ...more

Oh man I loved this story!! This is a wonderfully sweet story of a woman looking for love and family and a man who has both but doesn't realize it. Great characters and a story that flows beautifully. Recommended for everyone

A bed and breakfast, a fireplace, a Christmas tree and a Cute Angry Guy comes together and brings you pure romance. Couldn't put it down such a great Christmas read.

Despite the cute ending of The Snowflake Inn, by Samantha Chase, the bumpy beginning set a tone for the characters that I couldn't quite shake off, despite the character growth. Riley, a marine who’d been recently injured and forced to retire from service, returns to his mother Corrine's inn. He doesn't want to take it over, but he feels she should sell and find a man who can take care of her. His mom has hired Grace to cook and help out. Grace has always wanted a B&B like the Snowflake Inn— ...more

My tablet decided to quit in the middle of a story so I picked up the Kindle I got from a friend, loaded with books, most of them series by authors I never heard of, where the first book is for free (and with a bit too many love stories for my taste), but I thought better to read something than nothing. So I just picked this one and started reading. In the beginning I thought I would not like this story, but as I continued I got into the characters and became interested.

This was so laaaaaaaaame. I literally did not care about the main characters and I actually disliked the love interest quite a lot. Probably will never read anything by this author again.

A fun read. Audible narration was good. I’d love to stay at the Snowflake... too bad my husband would never do a B&B! Lol!

It was a good read, good plot, well written, but I was not drawn to the characters. I might not have been in the best mood when reading this book. I will have to try another book by this author.

I found this book to be too simplistic for my taste. I can safely say that I will not read it again.

In Snowflake Inn, Grace & Riley have differing plans for the Snowflake Inn. Grace feels like she's finally found somewhere to belong. Riley didn't want to come home but his family expected it. How will they ever come to an agreement?

Ms. Chase does an excellent job (as always) of developing primary & secondary characters that are realistic & lovable. She manages to get you hooked in the beginning by using humor & a storyline everyone can relate to. The reader is kept involved as

Favorite Quotes:

She was sure he had an actual name, but she hadn't had an opportunity to find out. When she had first noticed him around town a couple of days ago, she had named him Cute Serious Guy. The next day he had become Cute Brooding Guy, but today, he was looking pretty fierce so she went with Cute Angry Guy.

He was a U.S. Marine, damn it. He had faced the enemy in combat. He'd killed when necessary and walked into dangerous situations where he had no idea who he'd be facing more times th

Loved loved this book. Grace was told after a terrible accident. When she met Corrinea a women who was recovering and doing rehab too. They became friends instantly. She found herself going to The Snowflake Inn to be a cook. She loved every minute of it. Well that's until something, or someone might take that away.

Riley was not happy about being discharged from the marines, and worse going back home to run the B&B his mom ran..He knew she needed help, but what did he know about it. When he

I was so excited to find another most exciting Christmas romance from my most all time favourite author, Samantha Chase.

Grace who ends up deciding to move to a very small town. Out one day she meets this gorgeous young man who she isn't clear of his real intentions of being here. He seems frustrated with his short defence on reality of even being here, leading Grace into much confusion.

I thoroughly loved this most endearing story. Such a beautiful romance leading to the most wonderful tales of

The perfect uplifting holiday story. I really enjoyed this. Although there was the usual dilemma and uncertainty about what was going to happen, it wasn't too angsty or problematic. It was a very fluffy story and because the characters weren't rash or immature, they never lashed out or just ran away (as very very very annoyingly and commonly Happens). Loved that there wasn't any stupidity.
And even thought I disliked how fast everything happened at the beginning, it all worked out well

A beautiful story of acceptance, forgiveness and learning to fully live & love. Amazing writing was so beautiful and at times I could just vision the Snowflake Inn!!! I really enjoyed this book and wish it was longer or even a series. All of the characters were wonderful and the love between this family was just refreshing.

The Snowflake Inn is a warm inviting romance. Meaning it will warm your heart and invite you to read more. Riley has his reasons for not wanting to live and run the Inn his family owns. Grace has reasons why she would love to make the Inn her permanent home. The story that was written on how to two came to see eye to eye will leave you with a smile.

Review of

It was a good story about how a forever family can be found even though it didn't happen immediately. It took time for each person to get their life in order to come together as a family.

Samantha chase is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors. She created a cast of characters that I wish I knew personally. Riley and grace's love story is going to stay with me for some time. Loved this book.

Cute book... Quick read. Loved the characters and the endearing qualities the Inn holds. I enjoyed how the characters developed throughout the story and felt satisfied with the way the relationships were established as I am often left wanting more. Not the case here. Perfect in every way!

This book I didn't like too much. It was too predictable for my taste. I knew what was going to happen way before the ending. This is the first time I read a book by this author.

Sweet story

this was a fun light huge surprises but likable characters with a good story line. I am unsure why people were complaining about the sex. it was never explicit or graphic. I will look for other books from this author.

very underwhelmed with this one - it seemed very times the conversation just flowed and felt natural and other times it felt really forced and formal - which kind of took away from my enjoyment
