REVIEW: Winter Wonderland

WINTER WONDERLAND - Belinda Jones

“Imagine waking up in a snow globe… That’s how travel journalist Krista feels when she arrives in magical Quebec to report on Canada’s glittering Winter Carnival. Over ten sub-zero days, Krista’s formerly frozen heart begins to melt as she discovers an enchanting world of ice palaces, husky dog-sledding, and maple syrup treats galore. And then she meets Jacques, a man as handsome and rugged as he is mysterious… The two share a secret that could bond them forever, but can they find a way to break through the protective layers around their hearts to warm up this winter wonderland?”

*NOTE: Summary lifted from back cover of the book.

Well, for one thing, this book certainly wasn’t meant to be read during summer. I mean, DUH. The title is a dead giveaway. The cover too, which, btw, is very pretty. Seriously, you would not be able to read through this book without once thinking that a steaming cup of hot choco would go PERFECTLY with this book. I could just imagine myself reading this curled up with a cozy blanket in front of a fireplace during a snow storm (that is, if I ever found myself in a country with winter). HAHA!

The story itself was, well, a bit too perfect for me. I mean, what are the chances of meeting “The One” on a trip to a picture perfect country who just so happened to be in the same predicament as you? Still, the hopeless romantic in me can’t resist and I found myself smiling at the end of the book. And while we’re on the topic, why did she have to also be a “natural” in the one sport the Guy plays? And how is it possible that the same girl, a STRANGER can be the solution to just about everything? But hey, happy endings are essential to a love story so we’ll just roll with that. :)

BTW, plus points to the author for including an ice skating scene, a Samoyed appearance, and mentions of the Cirque du Soleil. ;)
