A country boy who hates Christmas for a reason, dammit … 

When Luke Nash runs into Stetson Miller down at the feed store, he never expects his friend to strong-arm him into spending Christmas at the Miller farm. Luke has no patience for Christmas cheer or Yuletide song. And the rugged cowboy definitely has no desire to kiss a girl under the mistletoe. No matter how inf ...more

Dec 26, 2017 rated it really liked it
A winter storm that promises to be the storm of the century. A Christmas loving city girl. A Grinch like cowboy that thinks he is fit for the senior's complex (even though he is 26). All of these combine to make a Hallmark Hall of Fame type vibe with lust turning to love pretty quickly since it is a novella.

"Will they make it through the Storm of the Century? Can the magic of mistletoe tear down the barriers between them?" Very good questions both of them (don't want to give away the answers but they are fun to read) Luke so needed to get out of a funk that was making him feel 50 vs his actual 26 years. Bonnie was missing her family and looking to find her usual love for Christmas time. These two are so fun to read and loved the descriptions of Long Valley. This story makes be desperate to read the ...more

I have enjoyed all of Erin Wright's Long Valley stories and this one is a special treat set at Christmastime! It can certainly be read as a standalone but I really urge you to read the rest of the stories in the Long Valley series - they are all great!

In Blizzard of Love, Luke Nash, a farmer in the Valley who plans on spending Christmas alone, accepts an invitation from his best friend, Stetson ("Stets") Miller to spend the holiday weekend with Stets and his wife, Jennifer. As Luke's best frie

Blizzard of Love is such a nice romantic Christmas gift for the reader. This short novel is about Luke and Bonnie, who run into each other (literally at their friends' house over Christmas). Soon they are snowed-in when a big blizzard hits and the power goes out in rural Idaho. Been there, done that and got the T-shirt living in North Idaho, and blizzards can be romantic. time stands still and you can cuddle up (to stay warm of course) by the fire and time stands still for a while. Luke and Bonn ...more

This was Bonnie and Luke's story. However, for those curious of what's going on with Jennifer and Stetson's relationship and her pregnancy they will enjoy reading this story as well. Bonnie is Jennifer's best friend and former co-worker. Bonnie is an accountant who is unhappy in her job. She gets stuck home for Christmas so Jennifer invites her out to the ranch. When she gets there she finds out she isn't the only invited guest. Stetson had invited his best friend Luke. Bonnie and Luke's first m ...more

BLIZZARD OF LOVE. By Erin Wright book 2 "Sweet Long Valley"
Christmas at the Miller farm, Luke accepted invite, antsy, and the thought of good cooking. He hated the season, the cheerfulness of the people.
Bonnie, loving Christmas, and wanting to be around people, snow, with all the trimming, accepts Jenn invite. A weekend get away, turns into so much more, a blizzard, and being stranded together. The defensiveness are high can they be broken down, and an end to loneliness for these two. Readers wi

Another wonderful book in the Long Valley series. I like a series because you get to keep up with the characters you have read about and get a new story also. It is like meeting old friends again. Luke does not like Christmas very much, feels like it is too commercial. When Luke, Bonnie, Stetson, and Jennifer are snowed in because of an unexpected blizzard, Luke begins to think the storm is a blessing in disguise. A few kisses under the mistletoe and Luke is pretty positive Bonnie and he could h ...more

Warm and Fuzzy

I love stories that take place in the country, where people live on ranches or farms. This book just makes you feel all warm inside. Luke's friend, Stetson, invites him to spend Christmas with him and his wife, Jennifer. Jennifer I cried her best friend, Bonnie, for Christmas. Although it wasn't planed, Bonnie and Like hit it off, after a rough beginning. Then the blizzard hits, and the four of them, plus Carmelita, the housekeeper, are stuck in the house. Best Christmas ever! Love

Blizzard of Love is a continuation of Accounting for Love but its the secondary characters who star in this book.

Bonnie and Luke are the best friends of Stetson and Jennifer in Accounting for Love. They have been invited to the ranch for the Christmas holiday...she loves Christmas...he doesn't. Was this a setup to bring them together or was it a coincident?? But what happens when they get stranded in a blizzard? Will they find a way to co-exist or will the heat they generate...melt the

Shelves: holiday
This was a nice quick holiday read. It can be read in one sitting. It has the magic of the season for Luke and Bonnie. Their first time seeing each other is very memorable and funny. They're opposites when you first look at it, but there is more then meets the eye. Bonnie's love of Christmas is like mine. I'm that Christmas person in my family. If you're looking fora good story during the holiday season I would highly suggest this one.

I just loved this story between the country boy and city girl. Was it planned by Stetson and Jennifer to try and bring Luke and Bonnie together? Or just a happy coincidence that they were both able to visit for Christmas? And of course the weatherman was so off base when he predicted one inch of snow that actually turned out to be a blizzard. It was great seeing more of Carmelita, the Miller's housekeeper/cook. You don't want to miss out on this story.

Too Short

Erin Wright writes lovely novels. This one is exactly the right length for the story but too short for this reader. One of the things I like best about Wright's books is that she writes the narration as well as the dialogue in the voice of the person through whose eyes we view the particular scene. And her characters have their own unique voices. One of the best romance writers on the market today.

This is a fund short novella that will have you realizing that opposites do attract. It is fun to see the transitions of both Luke & Bonnie throughout the story. People are not always what they seem and you can't judge someone by where they are from. Luke never liked Christmas before meeting Bonnie. Now I think it might become his favorite time of the year. Don't miss this one, well worth the read ...more

This is a really sweet love story of two people who meet at a friends house and think they would never fall for each other, her being a city girl and he being a farmer. Turns out she hates city life and after getting snowed in they find sparks between them and not just from the fireplace. I received a complimentary copy and I am voluntarily reviewing.

I really enjoyed this Western Romance. I received this book as a gift and I voluntarily chose to review it. I've given it a 4.5* Rating. This was a fun short Christmas read. These two characters didn't know what hit them but soon found out about the time the storm hit. Lots going on in this, part of it Christmas fun and a silly dog. Not for the under 18 readers.

Sweet short story

This story Went by too fast but, Bonnie and Luke are trapped together in a blizzard. Stuck with their two married best friends, in The storm of the century, love blooms warm and bright. These two didn’t start out looking for love but a snowed in cabin in the woods with No electricity and the sparks flew. A sweet satisfying love story.

Cookies and kisses

Oh, such a sweet love story! A winter wonderland must be the most romantic atmosphere of all. My only criticism is that the story moved so quickly there wasn't enough time to really feel you knew and understood Bonnie and Luke. Loved continuing the story of Stetson and Jennifer .

I liked that it was romantic without too much cursing and overly naughty bits, I can recommend this to my mother without being embarrassed!

Sweet story, I didn’t know there were two versions of this book. I read the tame version, cute nonetheless. Luke and Bonnie stuck in a blizzard at their friends house, over Christmas. Will sparks fly once the power goes out?

An almost clean book. I love when men refuse to think about marriage and tease their married friends. Loved the book.

This was just another fun read in the series. I enjoyed both Luke and Bonnie. I would've liked to see a bit more character interaction between them, but overall enjoyable.

Another cute read - when you fall in love over Christmas, but how will you work it out so that you can be in the same town - things are getting exciting.
