2018 A-Z Blogging Challenge – F

I’m taking part in the A to Z Challenge again this year and my topic is Writing Prompts! I tend to have a close, intimate relationship with writer’s block, so I figured I’d turn this year’s challenge into one that can hopefully help a few others let loose with their words. For those who aren’t authors/writers, definitely still participate! The more the merrier. Have fun with this!

Here we are for letter F!

Write for as long as you want/need, share in the comments (if you are comfortable doing so), and pass word along to your friends. Follow my blog and Facebook page to get all these A-Z posts and more.

Happy writing! ~Samantha

Steady as the Snow Falls
By:
 Lindy Zart

Publication Date: April 14, 2016
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Synopsis:

Hired by a stranger to write his life story, Beth Lambert arrives at a seemingly abandoned house in the hills near her hometown. She knows the rumors, she knows it is dangerous and unwise. But she needs the money. And she needs to prove that it isn’t a mistake to think she can make a career out of a dream.
Inside the house of emptiness and coldness, she finds a man with curt words and haunted eyes. He is eccentric, odd. Brutish, even. He scares her, and he intrigues her. When she learns who he is, she wants to run. But there is the money, and there is the dream, and eventually, there is simply Harrison Caldwell. The haunted man with the black, ugly truth.

“My regular followers are probably aware by now that I review everything Lindy Zart releases. You can call it an addiction if you’d like, but I prefer to think of it as dedication.” -Me

Steady as the Snow Falls was an incredible read for me. It was everything Zart, of course. It was beautifully written, poetic with a hypnotic rhythm. I melted into the words, surrounded by the snow, cold, and weariness. I stopped reading to get work done (what?!) and couldn’t stop thinking about this book until I picked it up again. At night I’d fall asleep and be pulled into my own world, reminiscent of some of what the main character, Beth Lambert experienced with her past.

One character in this story made me uncomfortable, but not the one most would expect. More specifically, Ozzy’s made me uncomfortable. He was odd and twisty, with a sense of entitlement. He was so well-written, I felt like I knew him. Maybe I have known an Ozzy at one point in my life.

I love Harrison Caldwell’s character. Loved him in the beginning, loved him after his “black, ugly truth” was revealed. I love their relationship and the build between them. Between Beth’s persistence and Harrison’s stubbornness, I was sucked right in.

If nothing else, I can always count on Lindy to make me feel something. She pushes the boundaries of regular literature and creates something memorable with this book. This is a wonderful read that you should get right now!
