Title: Snow Queen
Author: Linda Wisdom
Genre: Traditional Romance
Publisher: Joyride Books
Release Date: July 8, 2012
Rating: 4/5 Stars
A traditional romance with passion, but without explicitness of so many current contemporary romance fiction. Linda Wisdom created a tension filled tale of a woman raised by a tyrannic Grandfather, falling in love with a best selling Author, who is known for his womanizing ways.
I am by all means not prude, but it was refreshing to read a romance that did not interrupt the flow of the story, to add the details of lovemaking, often miss-placed or rushed in some contemporary novels of this type. The tension between the two main characters was just as effective and emotional without it.
Linda Wisdom allowed both characters to develop depth, and provides just enough back story on both to make their reactions to each situation and to each other believable, therefore providing real conflict, and believable friction. While the ending of the novel seemed a little rushed, even if understandably so, the rest of the books pace was thought through and convincing.
A charming book for a lazy weekend.
