With no other offers coming in Kitty agrees, which is how she finds herself heading to Cutler’s Gap, West Virginia a few weeks before Christmas. Unfortunately, travelling via the mountain pass, she hits a deer, her car refuses to start again, her phone isn’t working and no-one is around. She is also wearing unsuitable clothing for being stuck in the snow.
Adam Klein is the brother of Everett and is staying at Cutler’s gap, in a cabin by the lake. The brothers don’t see eye to eye and tensions are at boiling point between them. So when Adam is the one who ends up rescuing Kitty he takes an instant dislike to her as she is Everett’s employee.
Adam, though realises that Kitty isn’t like Everett’s other employees, but can he make amends and will she accept his apology after his rude, obnoxious behaviour towards her? Perhaps a puppy might help!!
A Winter’s Tale is the second book in The Shakespeare Sisters series, the first, Summer’s Lease I reviewed earlier in the year and loved it, so I couldn’t wait to get started on book two.
I absolutely love this book. From the start I was intrigued by Kitty. She is a delightful character and it’s lovely to see a ballsy woman who won’t take any rubbish from a man, even if he is god damn sexy.
Adam Klein has a tough exterior, but is a complete and utter softy at heart. He has trouble with trusting people and pushes people away to stop himself getting hurt.
From the moment that Kitty and Adam meet you sense that there is a spark between them, so I eagerly awaited their rendezvous.
The plot, scenery, character development and the descriptiveness all took me to a gorgeous cold snowy place far, far away from rainy Manchester, UK. This is a book that I could visualise perfectly.
This is a definite must read for anyone who loves romance/chick lit books. It is simply captivating, filled with drama and lots of passion. I now can’t wait to read book three.

Although ‘A winter’s tale’ is the second book in ‘The Shakespeare sisters’ series you don’t have to read the first book of the series to read this one.
There is nothing that I love more than reading ‘Christmas’ stories during the cold winter days. Every year I’m hoping that some writer will surprise me with a great Christmas story and this year Carrie Elks did just that.
Life doesn’t always goes as planned. Nobody knows that better than the Shakespeare sisters. They lost their mother at a young age, luckily they had each other and their father to lean on. Now, Kitty, the youngest of the four sisters left London to follow her dreams in L.A.. From a young age Kitty was fascinated by the movies she saw, but unlike other children she didn’t dream of becoming an actress. No, Kitty wants to work behind the cameras. She had hoped that she could get an internship by the famous producer Everett Klein but the only thing that she got from that interview was an offer to be a nanny to his only son during the Christmas holiday. Desperate, Kitty accepts the offer, hoping that maybe she can convince him to give her a chance with the internship too.
But nothing goes as planned. The house where she’s staying at is in the middle of nowhere and the people she sees most are Jonas the boy she is hired for, Annie the housekeeper and Adam the grumpy uncle of the child. During their first encounters Adam doesn’t make a great impression on Kitty. He is rude and unfriendly. But later on Kitty discovers another side of Adam. A side that she really likes. The more time they spend together the closer they became. But then Kitty discovers a secret. A secret kept from Adam. So now Kitty has to choose will she tell Adam and lose her chance at an internship or will she keep it from Adam and just hope he never finds out. Whatever she choose, Kitty will lose something.
I really enjoyed this book. This story had all the ingredients that I like in my Christmas stories. It had snow, Christmas festivities, romance, drama and even humour. It had the perfect mix of everything.
The story was told in both POV’s. Kitty is a young woman with a good, big heart. She is kind. Adam is like every alpha man, he is grumpy, antisocial but if he wants he can also be kind and charming, The fact that there is also a child in the story gives it something extra to me. And Jonas is a very sweet and curious child.
Carrie Elks wrote a lovely Christmas story and I’m looking forward to the next book in this series.
