Blog Tour & Review: Blame It On The Snow by Eva Lilly
When the snowstorm of the decade grinds Atlanta to a halt, it traps three young women in situations that could lead to heartbreak instead of frostbite.
Katherine Sutton must choose between freezing by the side of the road and taking shelter in a former lover’s home. When she sees the changes Charlie McAndrew has made to his life, she wonders what woman could have gotten this perpetual Peter Pan to finally grow up.
Emma Lawrence, attorney-at-law, is snowed in at work with only her hunky paralegal for company. She’s spent many billable hours lusting after Jonas King, even though office policy and a secret past keep her from acting on her atop-the-desk fantasies. When Emma finally lets her heart overrule her head, she finds herself with more than water cooler gossip to worry about.
Rhyan Kilpatrick reluctantly offers shelter to her best-friend’s younger brother, the A-list celebrity Ethan Sutton. The last thing she wants is to be snowed in with the well-known party boy, even if he is panty-melting hot. But when Rhyan sees beneath the superficial role he plays to the hilt, she wishes for more than one snowy night together.
Is it love that pushes these three women to take risks? Or can they blame it on the snow?
Nicole’s 4 Star Review
Have you ever noticed that people do some crazy things in a snowstorm? Some make sledding tracks in their front yards that rival any Olympic bobsled track. Some folks have enough snow that they turn the outdoors into a refrigerator. Some folks find that the best way to pass the time whilst snowed in is to “get busy.”
Eva Lilly’s Blame It On The Snow is a quick, fun collection of short stories that follows 3 best friends as they find themselves having to pass the time during the snowstorm in circumstances that are not necessarily under their control or their ideal. For these three women, the storm that shut down Atlanta will force them all to take hard looks at who they are and who they want. When the snow has ended, each will find themselves in a completely different emotional place than before the first flake fell.
I really enjoyed these short stories, but you have to go into them knowing that they are short stories. Eva Lilly does a great job of character development and telling a good story, but they are short. I found myself, despite the great writing, wanting more of everything! More build-up. More detail. More time with the characters. For those reasons alone, I found myself frustrated at the end of each one. I WANT MORE!!!!
Blame It On The Snow is a worthy read! It’s funny, light and perfect for an afternoon escape.

Quote From Book
“Anyone special waiting for you at home?” Charlie asked, stirring his soup.
I wish. Katherine couldn’t let him know she hadn’t had a date in months when he’d obviously moved on to the future mother of his children. “Barney’s been living with me for a few months.”
He closed his eyes, a pained look washing over his face. After a moment he reached for his glass, taking a long sip. “What does he do for a living?” he asked through clenched teeth. What did he have to be jealous about? He was dating Susie-effing-homemaker. But between his jaw ticking and death grip he had on his spoon, he was sucking all the fun out of her make-believe boyfriend. “He mostly licks his butt all day, when he’s not eating my socks or drinking out of the toilet.”
