Review: Warm Winter Love

Warm Winter Love

Warm Winter Love

By Constance Walker

Blurb: Katie Jarvis has to make a decision. She knows that her engagement to fellow school teacher Jason King may not be the love match of the century but she feels secure and comfortable with her upcoming marriage because “Jason and I want the same things. We have the same values.” But Katie has to rethink her orderly life when, on a winter skiing vacation, she meets and quickly falls in love with Sam Hubbard. Sam’s the opposite of Jason—he’s spur-of-the-moment, likes taking chances and his job takes him out of the country for weeks at a time. Sam has fallen in love with Katie and in the seven days that they spend together at Cedar Crest Lodge he tries to persuade her to marry him. But Katie’s afraid to listen to her heart—her father’s business travelling was the reason her parents divorced and long ago she vowed that she would not let that happen to her. But love has a way of not always conforming to set ideas and Katie has to rethink her engagement to Jason, her instantaneous love for Sam and then make the decision about the rest of her life.

Genres: Adult, Romance, Realistic Fiction

Published: December 1, 1988

My Rating: 3 stars

If this review were based on my sentiments alone, the book would get a one star rating. But, considering I have always disliked adult romances, I think that would be unfair.

Warm Winter Love was just not my cup of tea hot chocolate. I disliked the plot, because in my opinion it was unbearably cheesy. Usually I can stomach Adult Romance if they're's some humor, but Katie's so busy being confused about who she loves that she doesn't have time to be witty, I suppose. And Sam....meh. Not really the best male I've ever read about. I like to read about a guy with more mystery, who's more bad guy, maybe with even a bit of a tragic past. Not computer salesman who likes to ski.

And really! The plot was so predictable. Usually this works in romance, but this one could have used a few twists and turns to make it more interesting.

So, if you aren't a romance person (like me!) don't pick this up. If you are, than I'm sure you'll eat it up. But it was way too cheesy for me.
