Mallory's life is right on track: marriage to the perfect guy, her real estate job going nicely, and the hope of someday opening her own business. Until the night she runs into former flame, James. Years earlier, after a wonderful romance, James had proposed to Mallory, but she'd turned him down. Bitter and disheartened, he'd fled their Minnesota town for California.

Brilliant !! Got myself completely absorbed in the story, got that warm fuzzy feeling whenever I picked it up. Delicious mix of Christmas and wedding, perfect for this time of year.

As the Snow Fell took me back to the Lake Harriet neighborhood, that beautiful place I first visited in Walking Sam. I loved the people I met there and Deanna created another wonderful story with great characters. This second visit to Lake Harriet was just as enjoyable as the first one and I fell in love with all new people.

Deanna's stories are always ones that I can just escape into, where I can put the rest of the world aside for a little bit. And I love that this one is set around Christmas

A charming tale of an old romance causing issues with the current one. An adorable dog, a woman finding herself and her happily ever after. I laughed. I cried. I thoroughly enjoyed. Engaging!

This is the first book by this author I have read/listened to. The narration is beautifully done and the descriptive words of the author are beautifully written. Ms. Sletten writes likable characters and situations that pull the reader into the story. Second chance romances are one of my favorite tropes and this one is done well.
Mallory's heart was crushed by her first love who left after she rejected his proposal. Not that she didn't want to marry James eventually but his impatience caused his

This one is a definite Hallmark movie just waiting to be made. It's got all the right ingredients. An engaged couple that seems to have everything going for them and a beautiful life ahead of them. They're out one night celebrating her birthday when they stumble into the pub owned by her ex-boyfriend. She has no idea he's back in town. After all, he left ten years ago, the night she said "no" to his proposal. Mind you, she didn't say "never," she said, "not right now." Once she reconnects with h ...more

As the Snow Fell: A Lake Harriet Novel was a great read by Deanna Lynn Sletten. Mallory has been planning her winter wedding when she comes face to face with someone from her past. She ran into the man who she used to love. With him coming back into her life everything has been turned upside down. I loved Mallory and James’ story.

Another excellent read by Deanna Lynn Sletten. I have read several of her books and have yet to find one I did not enjoy thoroughly. Read this one in one day. Difficult to put down. Highly recommend.

Warm and charming love story. Predictable. Some improbably constructed sentences. Are these due to bad editing? Good for a cozy read with a cup of tea. I live in the same city as the characters do, so had to investigate it.

3 stars for As the Snow Fell. This is a heartwarming story of second chances. James and Mallory meet again after 10 years apart and while Mallory is engaged to someone else, this still has an unexpected HEA.

Sweet love story about falling in love all over again. Feel good read, like watching a "chick flick" on the Lifetime channel.
