Winter Longing

Winter Longing by Tricia Mills
rating 9/10
Release Date August 19, 2010

A plane crash in Alaska takes

Winter’s first love away forever . . .

When Winter's boyfriend is killed in a plane crash in the Alaskan wilderness, she's robbed of the future she'd only just allowed herself to believe might be hers. Winter and Spencer had been destined for one another. And after his death, Spencer's presence continues to haunt her.

But when her next-door neighbor becomes an unlikely friend, Winter begins to accept all that she can't change. Can she open herself to a new future . . . and a possible new love?

Winter Longing was a real and emotional read. I really enjoyed it; I thought it was beautiful and mesmerizing.

In the beginning, Winter's best friend and new found love dies in a tragic accident. You never actually meet Spencer while he is alive. You get a glimpse of their relationship from when they were kids at the beginning of each chapter. I like this because A) It didn't take time away from the story and B) it added to the emotion.

I loved Winter, and really felt for what she was going through. She was such a sweet girl, adn you can't help but root for her and question why she deserves to go through this.

Jesse was so sweet, too. All along he was helping Winter, slowly but surely, get through what she was going through.

Winter Longing was a really sweet and amazing read. The writing was really beautiful, and it felt like I was going through all of this right along with Winter. It's one of those stories that you just can't get over. It scars you in the best, most beautiful way.
