A Winter's Tale Book Review

Struggling film student Kitty Shakespeare is as bad at interviews as she is talented at making films. She's given herself until the end of the year to score an internship in LA, otherwise it'll be back to London with her tail between her legs. Unfortunately the only job offer on the table is as nanny to major producer Everett Klein's son, Jonas. It's not exactly the career she'd hoped for, but if she can get this right, then surely he'll take a moment to look at her work. However, what Kitty hasn't allowed for is Everett's sexy-as-hell brother, Adam - and love at first sight this is not.
Adam Klein may be sexy, but he's also gruff, rude and completely impossible. All he wants to do hole up in his cabin and hide from the brother who destroyed his life. If only he could find it easier to ignore the way Kitty makes his heart race . . .
As Christmas approaches, Kitty and Adam realise that although the course of true love never does run smooth, just maybe, it's more interesting that way...

A Winter's Tale

Rating: 4/5


As the next instalment of the Shakespeare sisters series, I had high expectations of A Winter's Tale after reading Summer's Lease back in July. There are four Shakespeare sisters in total and this edition of the series focuses on Kitty.

Struggling to get a placement for her budding career in film, Kitty winds up getting a nanny position from an employer she wanted to get a film placement with. Unfortunately there are some fiery issues in the family including an unresolved dispute between two brothers. Of which once again comes to blows in front of a little boy. Not a good move.

The love interest, Adam Klein, is described as sexy and rude. Sadly for me I only agree with the rude bit as I really don't like beards, but that's just me. Also the sex scenes felt a little awkward to me, I normally don't mind reading them but here I wasn't too convinced and it was a tad cliched. But that being said this plus a horrible incident involving a deer near the beginning are the only drawbacks I have for A Winter's Tale.

There are some charming events within the main story line, which I'm not going to reveal, that I wish I could be surprised with. I'm going to pass the book onto my husband to see if any of it happens. Can't blame a girl for trying, right?

Throughout the book there are some references and conversations with some of the other Shakespeare sisters, so if you've read another book from the series you will be pleased to be reunited with some familiar characters. If you haven't read a Shakespeare sister novel don't worry as each story holds its own and you don't need to read other books in order to understand what's going on.

I enjoyed reading the story of A Winter's Tale and thoroughly enjoyed the bust ups in the family, but a bearded man as the love interest put me off a bit. If you like a beard you're in for a fab read!
