When John’s estranged son, Gil, proposes selling the land and moving his father to California, she’s drawn into a bitter family conflict that exposes deep-seated secrets.
Can she make Gil see reason?
There is much to like in Deborah Vogt’s debut novel, Snow Melts In Spring, making it a satisfying read. Character driven, yet overflowing with beautifully described scenery, detailed information on horses and veterinarian techniques and an authentic romance which doesn’t succumb to clichés. Gil, Mattie and John are well developed characters that struggle with the hurts and disappointments in their lives, their personalities marked by their pain. Drawn together by a tragic injury to a beloved horse, there is still much to keep Mattie and Gil apart, including a family feud, hidden secrets and the defiance of both father and son. Snow Melts in Spring is an excellent start to the Seasons of the Tallgrass series and Deborah’s writing career.
