Review: Kissing Snowflakes by Abby Sher

Rating (Out of 5): 2.5
Publisher: Point
Goodreads Synopsis:

Just in time for the holidays comes the perfect winter break read! This fun, sweet, wintertime book is filled with humor and romance.

The picturesque montain ski lodge is the perfect place to spend winter break...if you have a boyfriend! Otherwise, that cozy leather couch in front of the crackling fire looks a lot less inviting. Good thing that there are lots of cute, blond, sweater-wearing ski instructors around to choose from....

This fun, sweet tale of holiday romance on the slopes is the perfect wintertime read!

I also read this a while ago, but it was just alright. Nothing spectacular, and it definitely could have been better.
It's about Sam, a girl who is being dragged with her father, new step-mother, and brother to a ski lodge. She doesn't like her step-mother and doesn't want to be out in the snow. She meets a boy Drew, and fools around with him some, while a different boy, Eric (obviously the better one), is also at the lodge.
Sam was okay. I didn't not like her, but she didn't particularly stick out to me either. She wasn't the smartest girl out there, though. She could have been more open to her step-mother, and should have seen earlier than she did that Eric was better than Drew. (So much wasted time on him.) But even when she does finally get to Eric, it's mostly just okay. A little flat, and not as fun as I'd been hoping for with all the wait with Drew.
I just didn't feel a lot for this book. Most of it was okay, and the romance wasn't as good as it could have been. Plus, I don't really know where they're supposed to go from there, how things are going to work out past the sky lodge. They like each other, but it wasn't all that steamy or romantic. The book overall wasn't all that exciting, either, though. There just wasn't enough for me.
I still get the image of the kissing snowflakes scene between her and her step-mother in my head every once in a while, though. So there's that. Well, that and the dragging on with Drew, and her holding hands with Eric in the woods near the end, is mostly what sticks out in my head. None of the scenes are particularly good things about the book, but still.
