Interview with "What a Girl Wants" author Jennifer Snow

What a Girl Wants
by Jennifer Snow

I am so thrilled to have Jennifer Snow here today and to introduce romance readers to her newest release, "What a Girl Wants"!


She's always just been one of the guys…until she falls in love with one of the guys. Except Bailey Sheppard has carried a torch for firefighter Ethan Bishop since high school. And now that his long-term girlfriend has left him brokenhearted, she's free to go after what she's always wanted.

Not that Ethan sees Bailey as anything but a friend. A best friend maybe, but still not a woman he'd be interested in. Pining for his ex has made him blind to the possibility of happiness with anyone else…. But can Ethan resist a woman who knows what she wants?



Ethan snatched the phone away before Jim could answer the text, which he knew he was aching to do, and slid it into his shirt pocket. He pulled the truck to the side of the highway behind an old, rusted red Volkswagen Jetta and jumped down onto the gravel. He positioned two traffic cones in the inside lane, forcing the oncoming traffic to take the outside lane, as Bailey’s tow truck pulled in front of the Jetta and she climbed out, clipboard in hand.
“I’ll be here if you need me,” Jim called from inside the truck, reclining the seat and shutting his eyes.
“You’re not even going to get out of the truck?”
“It’s a simple backup call. I only came along to get out of clinic duty.”
Ethan shook his head as he closed the truck door. It amazed him how their work ethic differed so drastically. Jim was four years older, yet he’d never shown any interest in advancing his rank at the fire hall. Ethan had worked hard, proving himself to his senior coworkers and landing  the position of captain by the time he was twenty-four.
He approached Bailey at the front of the vehicle where she spoke to a short, frazzled-looking bald man. “I’ll just need your driver’s license and your credit card…and I’ll have you hooked up and ready to go in just a few minutes. Feel free to sit in the truck to wait. The air-conditioning is on and it’s much cooler in there.”
The man disappeared inside the cab of the tow truck and Ethan waited until he was out of earshot before saying, “This car has to be at least thirty years old.” He leaned against the bumper to watch her work and the metal frame creaked in protest.
“That thing looks about to fall off,” she warned as she put the tow dolly’s coupler in open position by lowering the locking lever all the way down and inserting the locking pin to secure it in place.
Good point, he thought as he stood. “So, before I forget, we’re holding Luke’s bachelor party at the fire hall tonight—poker, darts, beer, the baseball game.… If you’re not doing anything, stop by.” Bailey was a regular at their weekly poker games, much to the dismay of the other guys, whose wallets she emptied.
“Stop by? To Luke’s bachelor party—the ultimate boys night?” She sounded incredulous as she inserted the electrical plug from the dolly into the switch on the back of the tow truck. That way the brake lights and turning signals on the dolly would work while en route to the shop.
“Yeah, why not?” He knew Luke wouldn’t mind. Bailey had always been like a third, less-annoying sister to the groom to be, and she kept his ancient, rusted-out truck on the road.
“I have Victoria’s bachelorette party tonight. A wine and cheese  in the backyard of the Brookhollow Inn.” She crisscrossed the chains and connected them to the eyelets on the bumper of the car.
“That sounds awful.”
“You’re telling me.”

Lets find out a little bit about Jennifer Snow!

Booklover Sue:   What is your writing environment?
Jennifer:   I write everywhere-coffee shops, pubs, in the fast food drive through (actually wrote 500 words once waiting for my lunch). But my home office is in the front of my home annd my husband and I share the space. It's nice to work side by side-together, but doing our own thing.
Booklover Sue:  Who is your perfect hero and why?
Jennifer:   I love a hero who takes care of things and gets things done. If I never have to get an oil change or mow the lawn-he's perfect:)
Booklover Sue:  What authors have caught your interest lately and why?
Jennifer:   I am reading some books for the RITA  contest, so there's been a couple that have caught my attention, but I'm not allowed to reveal lol.
Booklover Sue: What type of book have you always wanted to write?
Jennifer:   I have an idea for a fictionalized memoire that would span three generations of women in my family-hoping to write it someday.
Booklover Sue:  Top 3 things on your bucket list?
Jennifer:   Finish my current WIP, then finish the next one...then finish the next one. To most people that may be boring, but I'm totally fine living vicariously through my characters lol.
Booklover Sue:   How did you get the idea for this particular novel?
Jennifer:   I wanted to write a Friends to Lovers book as part of the Brookhollow Series, and I loved Bailey's character in book one as the mechanic in town. I've also been a bit of a tomboy growing up-loving sports and MMA, so I could relate to her character.
Booklover Sue:  What is your favorite scene in your new release?
Jennifer:   My favorite scene is the one where Ethan is posing as an attacker in Bailey's self-defense class. I won't reveal too much, but it was a fun scene to write. 
Booklover Sue:   What are you working on now and when can we expect it to be available?Jennifer:   I am currently writing books three and four in the Brookhollow series and they will release this Fall. Another holiday title in November:) 
Booklover Sue:  What do you like to do when you are not writing?
Jennifer:   I don't understand the question.
Booklover Sue:  What would you consider a perfect date?
Jennifer:   I know I sound like the most boring person in the world, but my husband and I often do 'day dates' where we will take our laptops somewhere nice, eat, drink and work on our respective projects-it may not sound romantic, but we stop for kiss breaks lol.
Booklover Sue:  What is one interesting fact about you that readers don’t know?
Jennifer:   I am terrified of escalators and frisbees. I believe both are silent killers:)
