Title: Come Winter
Author: Claire Gutierrez
Synopsis: In this book we meet Katrina Taber who gets captured while she sailing back to England and brought to Scotland. She becomes a kitchen maid of Master Reese Dermouth and hopes to leave to head home. She tries running away hoping to head home and works to get back home but her plan fails and gets brought back to Dermouth’s place hoping that love would start between the two.
This tale is a journey of one woman falling in love, going beyond the oppressive role that women are seen during her time, and live among royals that capture the villagers’ hearts.
Thoughts: ::deeply sighs:: I felt this book took forever to finish! Sorry if I am sounding critical but when I read the description I was hoping to see a romantic story between Katty and Reese but I was wrong since it kept going. I noticed how it was a cycle after she lost her first two husbands as in she runs away and gets found by the guy and brought back and they fall in love. The final husband, I did find it cuter in how they got together in the end and how at first that the last husband almost went through an arranged marriage but the girl ended up not looking as pretty as she looked. I did find it interesting that the second husband had an affair with one other woman while being with Katty but wishing they had the affair more involved in the story, which would’ve been a more hilarious tale like with some stories. Nope! I feel like it was briefly mentioned and ended quickly.
Did I like it as much as the other love stories? Not as much because there were good points to end the story and I felt like one love tale with one husband repeats and it rinses and repeats with a newer man. I think this author would’ve made the story shorter and not so repetitive and it was already fine with just the first husband, Reese.
Rating: 3 Pawprints out of 5! I didn’t want to go way below since there are good parts where the first part was better than the rest of the book in my opinion. I wished they covered the second husband’s affair and not cut it short because it would’ve given an interesting spin on the story. I wished it was cut short but if you like stories that are almost the same way as Gone With the Wind but set in Europe, I am not the end all be all reviewer, you can find this on Amazon.
Well, that is it for this short book review. I am hoping with the next one it will be better because it is in the Sci-Fi genre and I do love me some sci-fi stories!
What is next? Well, my Top Ten Songs of February! Stay tuned!
