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.

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

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.

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 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.

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 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?

well written, though the authors "degrees of steamyness" makes it hard to follow. i felt robbed of the "romance" potential. no detail was given beyond meeting, touching and kissing...

Luke Nash dislikes Christmas but he is invited to his best friend Stetson Miller’s place to celebrate with Stetson and his wife Jennifer who has also invited her best friend Bonnie Patterson who loves Christmas, to come . You will laugh , you will worry, but best of all you will fall in love with this story atleast that is what I did ! I am going to see if there is other ones in this series besides the two I have read .I received a free copy of this book and voluntarily chose to review it.

Blizzard of Love is a novelette, and can be read in an evening. Despite its length, however, it is a well written entertaining read. Luke and Bonnie's initial meeting is hilarious and a real ice breaker, snow and ice being the defining factor of this book. The connecton between them is palpable in the fish bowl setting with three other people present. When a storm downs the electricity, the small group of people are forced to share a room to preserve heat and candle light. Luke is so certain tha ...more

BLIZZARD OF LOVE by Erin Wright. This goes along with Accounting for Love by her also. A delightful, funny, story that tests the patience of two people. This story deals with Luke, antsy being on the farm by himself, yet hates Christmas. The noise, cheerfulness of people, is there anything worse, maybe an invite to spend Christmas at a friend's house. If he only knew that a best friend of Jennifer would have invited someone also.
His best friend is Stetson, the cooking of Carmelita won him over.

Luke hates Christmas and when his friend convinces him to spend it at the Miller Farm, he's none too happy. Bonnie just adores Christmas, and is excited to spend it at Miller Farm. When these two get together, wow, is it incredible. The chemistry is believable, the story enjoyable. I really loved this book, and definitely recommend it. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

I voluntarily read an advanced reader copy of this book for an honest review.

I was recently introduced to Erin Wright's books with Accounting For Love and instantly fell in love with her writing. i feel just as strongly about Blizzard Of Love.
In AFL you meet Stetson, Jennifer and Carmelita (she is Stetson's housekeeper that helped raise him).
In BOL you have Luke, Stetson's best friend and Bonnie, Jennifer's best friend. Both Luke and Bonnie happen to be visiting Stetson and Jennifer for Christ

This was a really sweet love story about two people who really didn't like each other at first. After spending time together, and with friends during a Christmas snow storm, they fell in love. It was a quick, fun read and I would definitely recommend it. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

***I received an ARC copy of this book for my honest opinion.***

To go from meeting a man by not so fun ways (just getting ready to use the bathroom and falling in a tub) and not liking him to falling head over hills in a matter of days due to a blizzard keeping them together for days. This book made me laugh and believe that love can overcome all.

I love romance books and this one is a true romantic delight. This is a standalone even though some of the same characters from Ms. Wright's book Accounting for Love are in this one. The author did a great job of writing familiar characters without making a new reader feel lost. The vivid descriptions of the blizzard and snow kept me wrapped in a blanket while reading this one. ☺ The love story between Luke and Bonnie was well written and I liked the way she carried them forward after a few mont ...more

A Review of Blizzard Of Love (Long Valley Christmas) by Erin Wright

Finding love in a blizzard - 5 stars

This is the first book I've read by Ms. Wright and I truly enjoyed it. Luke hates Christmas for his own personal reasons (going back to when his mother left the family at Christmas time), so he is surprised when his neighbor invites him to spend Christmas weekend at his home. Unbeknownst to Stetson, his wife has also invited her best friend from Boise to come up and spend Christmas weekend with

Quick read that had both romance and humor running through it.

After Bonnie arrives she runs into Luke, Stetson's best friend whom he had invited to spend Christmas at their house. Luke thinks Bonnie is a city girl and therefore off limits to him, he is a farmer and has little time for city girls. But through the 6 days they all spend together cooped up in ...more

This is the first book I've read by this author. It was a sweet short story. Bonnie and Luke, both planning on spending Christmas alone, are invited to their friends' house. Bonnie's first impression of Luke was not a good one. However, that doesn't last long. Thanks to a blizzard they're stuck, and that's when sparks fly. This is a standalone story, but their friends, Jennifer and Stetson, have their own story that I want to go back and read. They seem like such a great couple and I want to see ...more
