Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews
Genre: General fiction
I love Carrie Elks writing, started with the wonderful Fix You, followed by Love in London and its sequel, and then the first book of the Shakespeare sisters - all were perfect reads for me.
I love the UK links, though the Shakespeare sisters one isn't featured heavily in UK, but its still referenced. Sometimes I think authors forget there are countries outside the US ;-)
Kitty struggles so hard, a perfect student, first class work but she needs an internship and interviews fluster her to the point she fails, always, despite her excellent record academically. By a roundabout route she ends up nannying over the xmas break for a top producer, hoping that this may give her a chance somehow to get the fabled intern position.
The family are staying with Everett's parents over Xmas, with his brother Adam staying in a cabin close by. He and Everett had a major falling out the previous year and its something everyone is very tight lipped about, with Adam still doing his best to avoid Everett. Difficult though when they're so close, staying with the parents.
Kitty and Adam don't get on well at first, nor at second meeting, but when he looks at why he's so antagonistic to her he can see the fault was all his. He tries to be friends with her as he wants to make amends, well that's what he's kidding himself, really he just finds it hard to stay away. Of course friendship isn't going to work, not when he's so attracted to Kitty and she to him....
Adam is gorgeous, and I understood why he and Everett fell out when the secret was revealed, and he and Kitty were perfect together.
Everett - I thought he was a jerk, but there's things about him I didn't know, and I ended up by - well - not exactly liking him but understanding him a bit more.His wife Mia was a typical self absorbed Hollywood type.
Jonas, Kitty's 7 year old charge is wonderful, he's such a friendly kid, so open and loving. considering how neglectful and selfish his parents appear that's pretty much a miracle.
Annie the housekeeper was lovely, I felt sad though that she was so alone, she deserves her own story Carrie ;-)
Of course just when all's going well its not....you know, how at the peak of being happy disaster strikes and poor Kitty, poor Adam. I was so heartbroken for them.
As always though Carrie pulls the rabbit out of the hat, changes the way I feel about some people, turns what I thought was the story completely on his head to give a different meaning to it and everything works out well. I love a HEA.
Terrific read – and don't forget about poor annie Carrie, languishing away there all on her own. She deserves a love life too.
Stars: five, classic Carrie read, humour, pathos, angst, drama, happiness, more humour - the subtle British kind that I loved, not the force fed type found in too many novels, and of course, a fabulous story

In ‘A Winter’s Tale’ we meet Kitty Shakespeare. Kitty is the youngest of the Shakespeare sisters. Kitty has been living in L.A. for almost a year. It has been her dream as a film student to make it in the big city. But Kitty is struggling to get a new internship. Desperate Kitty accepts a job as nanny to major producer Everett Klein’s son, Jonas. This way Kitty hopes to impress the producer enough he considers her for internship. But when Kitty arrives in the cold and snow covered Blue Ridge Mountains she isn’t prepared for Everett Klein’s brother Adam. Adam is tall and handsome, but incredible rude to Kitty. But still, Kitty doesn’t seem to be able to forget him.
Well, I love books with a Christmas theme, and I loved the first book in this series so this book should be perfect for me. And it was. I loved every single page and I read it in a day. Kitty’s character is one I really loved. Kitty is a kind of shy, hardworking, beautiful, strong and a little naïve. And it was really fun to read about her. When Kitty met Adam she was completely in awe of him, even though he was really unkind. But being the good person she was, she tried to be kind to him and those first interactions between Kitty and Adam were really fun to read. I loved the way Kitty seemed to be in complete shock about someone like Adam liking her. I could honestly hear her say ‘You do?’ in my ear. Loved it!
Adam isn’t really a bad guy, but he has been through something terrible and after someone from his family betrayed him he doesn’t seem to be able to get past it. He leaves everything behind, and starts living in this cabin in the cold Blue Ridge Mountains. Adam is done with people and just wants to be left alone. But Kitty knocks him of his feet. And I loved being able to read this book from both his point of view and that of Kitty’s.
The romance and chemistry between Kitty and Adam was amazing and I loved reading every single page of ‘A Winter’s Tale’. The scenery the author described was gorgeous and I definitely got this wintery Christmas feel while reading this book. This book definitely is another great one and I can’t wait to read the next book in this amazing series.
