This was book 3, so my characters were back. Caro was in a panic, something was stopping her from marrying Cammy. Cammy loved her but was at the risk of being jilted at the alter. Josie was the wedding planner but had received a devastating news earlier in the day. Stacey was back to declare her love. Seb had a secret to reveal.
Having read many Shari Low books, I knew that the emotions would be expressed beautifully. What I didn’t expect were the shockers in this, the way they would carry me from one end of the emotional spectrum to the other. Happiness, sadness, heartbreak, shock, betrayal, anger, I felt all these acutely.
Shari Low is a master storyteller. Her way of embodying the characters and making them whole was a sight to behold.
My heart was full and empty. The beauty of this book just kept me going long into the day, simply thankful and glad that I got to know these characters.
I loved the book, and it loved me back!!
For a wintry snow-filled wedding, December could not be a better month. It’s just unfortunate that the last thing Caro wants when she wakes up on her wedding day is to get married. After being plagued by a series of nightmares and knowing how badly her parents’ marriage ended, she calls the whole thing off. It’s an explosive opening that author Shari Low expertly manages.
In these first few pages, Low carefully infuses the dramatic with just thew right amount of humor while also keeping everyone involved sympathetic. Sure, Caro is dropping a bombshell at the last possible hour, but she’s so likable and obviously distraught in her concern that it’s hard not to accept her reasoning—and yet Cammy remains such an upstanding guy that he deserves a happy ending. It’s a balancing act, full of believable complications, that Low keeps up again and again.
While the wedding propels the majority of the action, there are three other stories working in tandem with Caro’s. Told in alternating viewpoints over a twenty-four hour period, each of their additions are equally compelling. Stacey has never gotten over Cammy, but struggles being open with him. Seb, still reeling after the death of his wife, stumbles into the wedding practically on accident, but with something major to offer. Either of them could have filled a novel of their own, but Low expertly allows them to share the stage with each other, and the result is a rich exploration of a day in the life of a group of seemingly-loosely connected individuals.
Even so, there’s a star turn in the fourth voice: Josie. Somewhat cantankerous with a firm spirit and deep loyalty, she essentially functions as a matriarch over the proceedings. After being dealt serious medical news at the start, she casts it aside in favor of everyone else’s problems. This results in the some of the most heartfelt, touching moments of the book.
How much action can possible be packed into one day? If you’re Shari Low: an awful lot. There are few writers currently out there who can weave full characters into a slick story of family and romance with seemingly effortless ease. But she does, proving that she’s a master storyteller along the way.
Note: I received a free ARC of this book through NetGalley.
The writing is heartfelt and seamless. The characters are sincere, charismatic, eccentric, and lovable. And the plot is the perfect blend of heart, hope, humour, drama, and emotion.
The Last Day of Winter is, ultimately, a story about life, love, loss, dreams, heartbreak, friendship, family, and finding happiness and I absolutely adored it. It made me laugh, it made me cry, and in the end it left me smiling and was a wonderful, unforgettable, bittersweet ending to one of my favourite series of all time.

Thanks Shari....can’t wait for your next book which I have already pre ordered for early next year!
Having read all the other books in this series I was very much looking forward to this one and I was not disappointed.
Another great story,enjoyed the characters (as I did in the other books).
Shame it's the final book in the series though!
I am a big fan of Shari's books, have read them all and looking forward to the new knew one later this month.
The wit, comedy and absolute believability in all of Shari's novels is second to none. She writes using anecdotes and reference to the way I was brought up...and it's just lovely to read about these things.
If I could give 10 out of 5 stars, I really would.
Well done..I can't wait until the 21st for the next one :)
An entertaining read
It's two years on from when we first met Caro and Cammy in One Day in winter.
It is wedding day. Caro has woken up with dread. Stacey has crossed the Atlantic to declare her love, before it's too late. Cammy gets an unhappy surprise. A mystery guest is coming to the wedding. Lila shows her true colours (again) and Josie faces her mortality.
Another brilliant read.
I loved everyone in this great series of books but Josie was my hero. Bring her back Sheri x
