I write, read and review, I blog frequently and love anything to do with books and writing, including editing. I am a Book Nerd and I wear that badge with pride. http://coffee2words.wordpress.com
Winter Arrives is the first part of a series of books that make up Roz's White Cairns Ski School collection.
The story is about Jude, who is left to run her ski school on her own for the first time. This annoyed me. There's supposed bombshells dropped left and right (you're never really told what happens), Jude has a bit of a sniffle and whine about things and then surprise surprise something or someone appears to fix it. I hate that Jude appears to be so dependent on her husband and while he's away she can't seem to do even the most basic things... like open the business' mail.
The synopsis pretty much sums up the entirety of the book, it's all there for you...
Let's move onto the writing.
It's not the worst I've seen, that's for sure. And the general writing was typo free, it just didn't sit right. I think it'd benefit from a cull of superfluous words and repetition.
I wanted the story to progress faster, but it didn't. I also wanted something to actually happen... but it didn't.
I won't be continuing on with the series. It just didn't hold my attention enough. Sorry Roz.
