The Battle of Hastings is over and the Normans and the Saxons are dealing with the aftermath in their own ways. William, a Norman, is now king and he has decreed that his knight, Robert Alain de Bellencombre marry Kendra and he will receive her father's lands for serving him so well during the battle of Hastings. Kendra is horrified at the prospect of marrying a Norman, because she's been lead to believe that it was a Norman who killed her beloved brother, Del, at Hastings. She vows that she'll never marry a Norman. On his deathbed, Del made Kendra promise to find happiness, even if it meant a Norman was the one who could bring her that happiness. She begrudgingly agrees, but when Del dies, her heart is even more hardened against the Normans.

The reader enjoyed this novel from the very beginning. It had just the right amount of a paranormal flair to fit in with the era in which the action takes place. The reference to King Arthur made the novel seem more real, because his legends are so popular. I liked the fact that Alain originally arrived at Kendra's acting as a squire partly to see if she would be a good catch or a wretched wench to be married to for the rest of his days. The novel is delightful! The glossary afterward is what spoiled it for this reader. Having had years of experience with the French language and it's pronunciation, it was distressing to see how many words were mispronunced in the glossary. This aside, it is a magical story and worthy of being read over and over again.

I'm not sure what made me pick this book - it's not a genre I normally read but I had received a couple of tweets about it and the title interested me. Then when I saw the cover, I liked it and I suppose you could say I felt inspired to read more than the description. I'm so glad I did.
Starting off with the Battle of Hastings it soon had me wanting to read on and, as the book progressed, I found it more and more to my liking. The story was a fascinating mix of history, fact, author imagination, and a bit of magic power that was made quite believable.
I am happily giving this book 5 stars and it deserves every star and more. The main characters were well rounded and I quickly clicked with their personalities. It was a marvelous read, which I highly recommend.

This story held my attention throughout. The trials and dangers faced by the characters were many but not exaggerated in an unbelievable way. I hated every interruption that made me put the book down! Kendra's heartbreak made me empathetic to her troubles and Alain stole my heart with his devotion to her: "His sole regret...was that he could not keep kissing her until all the stars fell from the sky."

A refreshingly "clean" romance with a touch of magic. A 5 star read and highly recommended!

How could one not love this novel by Kim Iverson Headlee? Snow in July has everything a reader could want, Romance, Intrigue, History, Magic, and most of all (for us Arthurian lovers) a knight in shining armor! The story is set during the Normans and Saxons, which in itself, the history is a character that parallels the novel. In the midst of everything, our star-crossed lovers have to overcome thievery, beasts, and dangerous sorcery, however the biggest obstacle of all is their intense feelings for one another. I must say, that this novel does not drag at any point. I found myself not wanting it to end. Our beloved characters find themselves falling in love whether they want to or not. Alain and Kendra have what this time period is known for, honor. But the question remains, can our lovers throw caution to the wind and be honest and vulnerable? See for yourselves, as today you can grab a copy of this intriguing and irresistible novel and find out. I couldn’t recommend a better book for the summer, Snow in July fits in so many genres, it will please everyone.

Four stars because the paranormal in the story became a bit much. Lady Kendra as a natural healer is fascinating but the bad guy being a shape-shifter was more than the story needed. Ulfric was terrible just as a human being.

The characters were very well written. I thought Kendra's grief for her brother was a bit selfish, and melodramatic. She seemed to thrive on grieving for her brother.

Sir Robert and his friend are very engaging from the start of their subterfuge to becoming part of Kendra's family even before the romance really begins.

This was a surprising story that was rich in description, and in the history. The paranormal aspect is not heavy but the shape-shifter was a bit too much. It just did not fit in with the history, the mystery, or the story.

I picked this book because it was classified as YA medieval paranormal romance, all of them my favourite genres. I agree with the medieval romance aspect and the paranormal to a tiny bit but I would never call it YA though. I am not sure which part made them think it's suitable for YA. It might be suitable for them but not wholly acceptable for them.

Aside from that, I have no complaints with the book. I loved the story and the characters. Alain was not what I expected. I was thinking that he would be a bit more jaded and rough. But he was a smooth person with the right amount of tenderness and softness. But he was man enough not to appear too soft. As for Kendra, she was a feisty one. I loved her spirit and her will. I gotta mention Ulfric too. He was a very good villain. He totally made me fall for him with his schemes and his evil mind.

The story's pace was a bit slow at the start but half way through it picked up. The mystery and the action and the political intrigue had me engrossed in the book. The writing was easy to read and descriptive enough to entice my imagination.The romance wasn't overdone and it was a fun book to read.

My rating : 5/5

My reread factor : 4/5
