    Contemporary Fiction - Chick Lit

    One Day in Winter by Shari Low A Winter Day #1 It is almost Christmas as this story begins. It is told from the perspective of four people who will each experience more before the day ends than they could have imagined. Caro: is just finished teaching and on break. She is off to see if what she has seen on social media might give her insight into why her father disappeared a couple of years before. She is dealing with the illness of her mother and wants answers. Cameron/Cammy: is a man nearing forty who has loved deeply in the past and lost the girl to someone else. He has a business running a men’s clothing shop and believes he is in love and ready to settle down even though friends of his are skeptical. Bernadette/Bernie: has been married for thirty years, born two children, is a nurse and is fed up and finally ready to claim her life for herself again. Her husband is a handsome professional man who is in reality a scum-bucket. Lila: is a blonde beautiful bombshell focused on her media image and attaining the man she has been with off and on for the past seven years. She seems to have daddy issues that carry over into other parts of her life. Of the four people narrating this story she is the one most difficult to feel anything positive for. The book begins with a person on a bed alone dying. The book then is told in segments of time by the four people mentioned above. Beginning in the morning we see how the day of each one begins Next they are on their way to achieve their goals for the day We follow and get to know them better As the day wore on I began to: * like Caro more and more * hope Cammy could deal with what I suspected was going to happen * cheer loudly for Bernadette * and dislike Lila and the man she was having an affair with By the end I was satisfied with the way the book ended. At first I was wondering if I would enjoy the book because it moved from one perspective to another and I wondered if I would be able to keep all the threads straight but very quickly I realized it would be no trouble at all. Did I enjoy this book? Yes Would I read more by this author? Yes Thank you to ARIA for the ARC – this is my honest review. 4.5 Stars

    A busy day!

    Four main characters and a number of their connections feature in this engaging women's fiction read. The action takes place over the course of one day with sufficient back story to give the novel some depth. The book begins with a character dying in hospital; it will only be at the end of the novel that the reader learns who this is. As for the characters...Bernadette is married to surgeon, Ken, their union is not a happy one. She, Ken and their two children are one story line. Media obsessed Lila is another; she is involved with Ken and is half sister to the more likeable Caro. Both Caro and Lila's mothers were married to the same man but they have never met. Cammy wants to marry Lila but gets to know Caro as well. There are others in the novel including Caro's cousin, Caro and Lila's parents and an entire French football team! Each chapter follows one of the main characters. I found this book to be an enjoyable read; one of those novels that is good for a time when you want to relax. There will be another book by this author coming out soon.
