The author has some lovely turns of phrase, especially at the beginning of the book, but the version I read contains numerous editing errors. Alternating chapters are told from Amelia's and Jake's points-of-view, allowing us to see how Jake's plans for this Christmas get-together are wildly different from those of the Montgomerys. Some later chapters are told from Billy's point-of-view, which disrupts the structure of the story; this might have worked better if Billy's contributions were there from the beginning. Amelia goes by three different names (Amelia, Mel, and Amy) and - even though this illustrates how she is seen differently by Jake, her family, and Billy - it feels like an unnecessary gimmick in such a short book. These issues aside, the author skillfully creates a tense atmosphere, making us feel shut in and isolated, much like the Montgomerys. Again, like the family, you never know what's going to happen next.
This is a suspenseful story that you are sure to want to read in one sitting.
I received this book in return for an honest review.
Full blog post (1 June):[...]
With Winter Road, Kristina Rienzi has created a thrilling novella. It is a compelling read, playing with the peaceful Christmas versus dangerous lunatic topic. Kristina Rienzi draws the reader closer to Amelia while the story evolves. I was drawn rather close to the Montgomery family. Amelia's character is of sufficient depth, the events are chilling. Most of the story happens in one day/night, the last chapter covers what happens later.
The cover is great!
This is a book for you if you like thrillers in novella length, the Christmas season, and fast reads.
Amelia traveling to backwoods Shady Knolls on Christmas Eve , the love from family is exactly what she needed right now.
What she didn't expect was her troubles in her life to follow her,that would be her fiancee Jake that the relationship is over. But in Jake's mind If he cannot have Amelia no one can and he will own and keep his Amelia at no cost!
