Book Review - Snow Melts in Spring

This is my review of Snow Melts in Spring by Deborah Vogts, as first published at LibraryThing:

Outstanding debut novel... I am really looking forward to Seeds of Summer next spring. All of the elements of a Romance Novel are covered with the skill of an experienced writer. The Kansas Flint Hills characters are very real; expertly portrayed. I did oral histories with a number of folks just like John McCray a few years ago.... This portrayal is "right on." The emotions are correct, the physical attributes are described accurately. Using the character Jake to talk to Gil to get at the final twist was an astute move by the author. The Christian elements were nicely integrated at just the right times, throughout the book. Congratulations to a fine first novelist! ;-)

Disclosure: I did this review from a signed copy of the book received from the author. I wrote a blog on the Kansas Flint Hills for a few years, and we got to "know each other" through that medium before she published this first novel.

Happy Reading! ;-)
