Book Description

Owner of La Bella Vita, a five-star day spa nestled in the affluent suburbs of Nashville, Tennessee, Beth Sergeant knows her elite clientele firsthand. She attended their private schools. She was even engaged, although briefly, to one of their most recognized bachelors. But she never fit in to their social-elite world.

After losing his parents to a car accident at a young age, Nick Chester was raised by his grandfather, the wealthiest man in Nashville. When he chooses to socialize, he has a never-ending list of exclusive events and beautiful women vying for his attention. Yet he never lets himself forget that everyone has an agenda.

Beth can’t resist Nick’s charm and accepts an invitation to dinner, despite her deep-seated insecurities. She proves she’s nothing like other women Nick's dated and learns to trust him in return. But just as the last of their resistance crumbles and true love is within reach, challenges from Nick's past threaten to destroy everything and force Beth to reveal her most guarded secret.

4.0 out of 5 stars Predictable but loved it ... December 10, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
There are many different themes to this book that won't surprise you. In fact, you'll be able to guess what some of the characters are going to do next - especially when Nick and Beth start getting close. But the build-up for each character and the pacing of how the story develops is so, so well-written you'll be drooling for what happens next.

If you need comparisons, think Danielle Steele or Jackie Collins. Beth is the ever-strong but slightly vulnerable while Nick appears to hide his flaws, until his past starts catching up with him. So, can love at first sight conquer all or is it the first layer to a nightmare that will reinforce your cynical side to all things 'love'? You'll just have to read the book to find out.

Would I recommend this read? Oh yes, definitely.

Overall assessment:
Content: 4.5/5
Editing: 4.5/5
Formatting: 4.5/5
Pacing: 4.5/5
Offensive content?: Mature readers or at least 17+

4.0 out of 5 stars Winter's Magic January 7, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This was an enjoyable book. Beth is a smart business woman who owns and manages an amazing spa. She meets Nick when he comes in to a spa package and there is an instant attraction. While Beth grew up with the elite, she was never really a part of that circle since her family wasn't as wealthy as most. Nick on the other hand is from an exceptionally wealthy family and could have his choice of women. Will their two worlds find a way to exist together?
I did like the instant attraction in this book. It was there, you could feel it and their bantering was great to read. Beth was a complex character who has issues both past and present that affect the way she sees the world. Nick is strong and wants to do things on his own but is also kind and private. They are a great couple. The 'issues' that try to tear them apart are understandable and even unsurprising, but the story all in all was good.
I rate this a 4/5. It was a good quick romance read.

Thank you to PumpUpYourBooks for the review copy of this book. I received this book in exchange for an honest review and the opinions stated above are 100% mine.

5.0 out of 5 stars Charming Story! January 17, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
What a wonderful holiday romance! I am glad that I read this.

The plot had romance galore, a few bumps in the road to the HEA, a girl and guy that you can't help but want to get together, and of course, some Christmas spirit! :D

I would gladly recommend this book to all romance readers, especially those looking for a holiday read.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion. I honestly loved it. I didn't put it down until I was finished.

I am eagerly awaiting the next book in the series. :D

4.0 out of 5 stars Winter's Magic January 6, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
For twenty-nine year old Beth Sergeant, growing up in a middle class Nashville family and attending a wealthy private school, had left her feeling like she never really knew where she truly fit in. And now with the success of her new five star salon and spa, La Bella Vita, she still doesn't feel like she fits in with Nashville's elite crowd. Beth's track record with men has been dismal. She has only had three serious relationships in the past ten years, each one had left her even more insecure and distrustful of men. She vows to never give anyone the opportunity to judge her worth or make her feel like she didn't measure up. Never again. Plus a closely held secret makes her think that she wouldn't be enough for any man to want to marry her.

Thirty-four year old building firm owner Nick Chester was born into the wealthiest family in Nashville. Every woman he has dated over the years has wanted something from him: status, money, influence ... but never just him.

When Nick enters Beth's salon and spa, a spark of attraction is ignited between them ... but is it enough to blossom into some passionate Winter's Magic when a scheming ex-boyfriend and ex-girlfriend, Nick's past and Beth's secret threaten their fledgling relationship? Or will the magical time of the season bring them everlasting love?

Winter's Magic is a feel good romance story about love at first sight and believing that true love really does conquer all. In her debut novel, author Cynthia Gail weaves a sensuous and passionate tale of romance between a man and woman during the magical Christmas season. Written in the third person narrative and set in the heart of Music City, the reader is transported to scenic Nashville to follow Beth and Nick's story of falling in love.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sweet and reviving November 15, 2014
By Cp
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Having met her share of frogs and never fitting in with the "It" crowd , our heroine feels that her work and chocolate is what life is all about. And just at that moment......
Yes the story was a little like the chocolate, a little too sweet in places but ultimately very enjoyable. Sexy, sweet and a taste for more.

Predictable. Heroine is noble and withdraws so hero can be with the mean girl who claims to be pregnant. I hate that particular plot in romances, hence my rating. Read more

More About the Author

My husband and I live in the suburbs of Nashville, Tennessee with our three dogs. When I'm not working or writing, I can be found with family and friends. I love to bake in the winter, grill in the summer, and on occasion, I sneak away from everyone and curl up with a good book.
