    Snowdrops and Stardust by Sue Lilley is a short, romantic story The story starts off ominous where you are not entirely sure what is going on It is like it started in the middle of a story and you missed what happened prior to where the story starts However, that can be typical of short stories It did get back to and explain the story from where the reader is dropped, which is nice I think it added an element of suspense to the book, wondering what happened My only real complaints are how Snowdrops and Stardust by Sue Lilley is a short, romantic story The story starts off ominous where you are not entirely sure what is going on It is like it started in the middle of a story and you missed what happened prior to where the story starts However, that can be typical of short stories It did get back to and explain the story from where the reader is dropped, which is nice I think it added an element of suspense to the book, wondering what happened My only real complaints are how the book ended and that it was from the third person The ending left you wanting , but that is not necessarily a bad thing The end makes you think that there is a second one, but it is still a good ending that leaves you satisfied if there is nothing else after it The third person aspect is something personal for me I am not a fan of most third person storytelling because it is harder to do well enough to get a reader in the story, but I think Lilley did it well enough to keep the short story interesting I would recommend this to anyone who is interested in light, love stories

    I received an ARC from Exclusive ARC and I choose to review this book Thanks This is a short story it s only 46 pages long Reads quick Maiden made me sad, I felt bad for him Really liked him Felt like Marianne used him I give this a 3.5 rating Probably not for everyone but I found it different and interesting.

    A lovely and engaging read although I would have loved a sequel that has a realistic ending and features lively characters, this is a great read if you want something to sink into before bed The writing is tight and the characters are realistic and easy to sympathize with, and the setting and descriptions are lovely.

    I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book This was the first book I ve read from the author and it was good The only reason I didn t give it 5 stars was because I felt like there wasthat could have been told and it was very short It was a little different read for me as it kinda went to third person but all in all, I would definitely readfrom this author.
