Review

TwoLips Reviews Five Lips, Recommended Read. I was completely enraptured by The Snow Bride. It’s the best story I’ve read in quite some time.  – Mac

Romance Junkies 4.5 Blue Ribbons.  A magical read, THE SNOW BRIDE is an intriguing, passionate historical romance that will keep you up late into the night, avidly turning pages to see what happens next.

Night Owl Reviews 4.25  The novel is very exquisitely written, showing great depth of character and a well thought out plot line. The characters themselves are gorgeously written and vivid, making them seem almost lifelike in spots.

Red Roses for Authors. Four red roses. This is a wonderful twist on Beauty and the Beast.

The Celtic Rose. 4 Celtic Roses. Ms. Townsend’s tale of these two lonely people joining forces to track him to his lair is non-stop, rich and lyrical. Her voice is distinctive, her writing style a delight, and the ending is both satisfying and promising in that a sequel would be possible.

Sizzling Hot Book Reviews 4 Hearts.  The Snow Bride is and entertaining medieval love story, one of my favorite kinds. I enjoyed that Magnus is willing to woo Elfrida by treating her as an equal, no matter how hard it is for him to do.
