Book Description

Do you remember your mother telling you when you were little that you’d never meet Mr. Right if you were spending all your time and energy with Mr. Wrong? And what about the book out a few years ago that created such a hoopla with the single crowd – He’s Just Not That Into You? The two main characters in Winter Interlude either didn’t heed their mother’s advice or haven’t read the book. Now, add into the plot that the two in question are enemies who regularly run into each other, given their current relationships. Paul Morrison, a hunky, blond, financial planner, has been putting time and energy into winning the heart of Kate Winter’s best friend for almost as long as Kate, a strong willed antiques dealer, has been dating James Morrison, Paul’s brother. The sparks start to fly when the two get stuck together for a three-hour drive to the mountains and years of misconceptions about each other are slowly being wiped out. It is in the confines of the BMW that the two begin their journey, taking them from being mortal enemies to lovers.
Winter Interlude tells the story of their adventure – of how they finally find love. Kate and Paul’s story is the first one in a series of four friends caught in a time warp. They can’t move on because they are stuck on their idea of their perfect dreams. But sometimes life works in mysterious ways and they are all forced by circumstances to change.

5.0 out of 5 stars Winter Interlude September 14, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Winter Interlude is a great story with lots of unexpected twists - and the scenery descriptions will take you straight to the Tahoe ski slopes! Sandy Loyd has a knack for making Kate and Paul come alive on the pages: two good people who've put heart and soul into their relationships, but must now look deep into their own hearts in order to find their way to true love. This book is a winner!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Read October 8, 2012

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I found this on the free book list and decided to read it. Once I started I could not put it down. I found it very entertaining and it took me only 3 days to finish. There were no explicit steaming scenes in this book and at time the back and forth dilemma of the characters became a bit aggravating but over all I really enjoyed this book and series. Once I finished this one I had to get the other 2 and read them. This is definitely a series that should be put on your reading list but be forewarned there are a few typos but I guess that is to be expected from an e-book series, although that should not be an excuse. If you can overlook that then you will enjoy reading this book as well as Promises, Promise, and James.

Format:Kindle Edition
This book has all the romance and excitement one could expect from a great romance. Sandy Loyd really has a way with characters and when these two come together sparks fly and the scenery is amazing. A fun and enjoyable novel. I recommend it highly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Winter Interlude September 7, 2012

Sandy did a wonderful job of creating characters that were true to life. It was a real page turner. I just recently found more time to start reading again and thank goodness "Winter Interlude" was published. Sandy's other books "Promises, Promises" and "James" were entertaining as well. I know others that enjoy romance novels will surely love all of the California Series novels. Take the time to sit down, pour a glass of Cabarnet and enjoy a good read!

2.0 out of 5 stars A Tedious Read December 18, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I found the story's plot lacking and predictable. Drawn out scenes and repetitious dialogue made me speed read.
The the end was anticlimactic and abrupt.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Female lead really annoyed me at times October 8, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed this book most of the way but when the female lead kept turning the male lead away, it all got a bit too much. Honestly if the author had let it be just a little more natural this book would've been good. The h was also a bit over the top in terms of trying to always be in charge and to my mind she lacked consistency. I'm not a fan of this type of character. On the other hand the guy was truly gorgeous. Some readers might find the idea of the h having being in a long term, committed relationship with the H's brother a little creepy. She spends the 3 days stuck with the H and being attracted to him, kissing etc and then goes back and breaks off with the brother. 3 weeks later they're in a d & m (deep and meaningful) relationship. I'm not sure that 2 brothers can easily overlook the h being lovers to both. Aside from that it was interesting and I did feel compassion for the h, in that she deeply desired marriage and kids but the H's brother wasn't there for her.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good writing, predicable story
The writing and setting were good, but the story very predictable. Still, an enjoyable read. I'd recommend it, esp. if you like winter settings and skiing.

More About the Author

Sandy Loyd is a Western girl through and through. Born and raised in Salt Lake City, she's worked and lived in some fabulous places in the US, including South Florida. She now resides in Kentucky and writes full time. As much as she loves her current hometown, she misses the mountains and has to go back to her roots to get her mountain fix at least once a year.

She spent her single years in San Francisco and considers that city one of America's treasures, comparable to no other city in the world. Her California Series, starting out with Winter Interlude, are all set in the Bay Area. Her series consists of fun, heartwarming stories about crazy friends who, like single people everywhere, are seeking that someone special to share their lives with among thousands of eligible candidates.

Sandy recently published her first Romantic Suspense novel, The Sin Factor, set in another wonderful US city, Washington, DC. She has since published two more, both set in fictional towns in Kentucky to give a reader a feel for small town living. Running Out Of Fear's setting showcases the state's caves and lakes. All have heart-stopping suspense and are full of the twists and turns she loves. Sandy also doesn't skimp on the romance.
