One Walk in Winter by Georgia Beers


Olivia Santini, hardworking assistant manager at Evergreen Resort and Spa, has been managing the resort even while a good-for-nothing manager was in place. He’s been gone for six months and Olivia is hoping to be made manager and is shocked to find one Haley Boyd making a surprise appearance as the new manager. Just before meeting Hayley the Manager, Olivia had met Hayley the Photographer in the Woods and there was an interest on both sides. Bad enough Olivia has been bypassed for the promotion, but to make it worse Hayley seems to be completely clueless about running a resort.

Olivia and Hayley are immensely likeable characters and we loved that the feelings of both for the other are fully described so we are privy to the mutual attraction. That always helps is getting a feel of the budding romance. Hayley is strangely young and her vulnerability comes across so strongly that you feel a sense of protectiveness about her rather than irritation. Olivia is simply lovely – though we can’t even begin imagining her level of frustration with her workplace.

This is a low – very low – angst read and we loved that. We by far prefer no-to-low angst rather than forced conflict. We enjoyed the attraction and chemistry between the MCs and the secondary characters too. There is a breeziness in the writing especially in the first half which makes it so easy to read.

We’re not sure why the scene where Hayley is breaking Guin’s heart is there. That is so unnecessary and we’d rather not have had that little no-so-nice insight into Hayley. But apart from that one scene, this is an easy, romantic read.
