A Winter Affair Synopsis
A wonderful warm, seasonal treat, whisking you on a magical adventure to the Swiss Alps. Full of food, laughter and fun. Perfect for the fans of Trisha Ashley.
With a recent divorce and empty nest Eloise Brandon is facing Christmas alone until a harried phone call from her godfather changes everything.
Accepting his challenge, Eloise finds herself en-route to Verbier and to her godfathers chalet in the beautiful Swiss Alps to help cater for some seriously rich, high rolling guests.
What ensues makes it a Christmas to remember. A heady alpine mixture of old friends, ex-husbands, mega-rich, super demanding guests, a dishevelled proprietor and Bert the dog.
A Winter Affair Review
If you remember my last book review, Lizzie’s War, I mentioned that after a few “meh” books to review that I was glad to have a book that was really good. Luckily, A Winter Affair keeps to the trend of being a good buck. As you can tell from the cover and title, A Winter Affair is a holiday book that takes place in the Swiss Alps. Ms. Howard does an amazing job of not only setting the scene for the holiday but for the inevitable romance that is going to happen. You see the book opens with Eloise having just gone through a divorce and she’s looking for a distraction. When her godfather calls and starts talking she accepts what she thinks is an invitation to join him on a trip to his resort but what is actually her agreeing to work for him! Since I received this book in September I was a little skeptical going in because with the cover I was afraid it was going to focus A LOT on the holiday aspect and while it does a bit it’s more of a book about the resort in the Alps then it is about it being Christmas, which I liked.
Overall, I found A Winter Affair to be a great book and one that I could actually see rereading next winter. With it being only $0.99 to purchase on Kindle I for sure recommend you pick it up if you’re a fan of holiday romance books!
