Overview

It's the 1963 holiday season in New York, and talented actress Danica Britt is newly engaged to Tyler Newton, star of their television sitcom. History professor-novelist Zane McCaul visits the studio and encounters Dannie, who is being considered for the starring role in the tv production of his best-seller. Although Zane is fourteen years her senior and burdened by a polio-limp, his subtle charisma and ironic expression reveal an inner star quality that soon draws Dannie's professional and personal attention. Widowed, lonely and reserved, Zane is enthralled by the fey, nervy young beauty whose incandescence seems to promise future stardom. Complicated by Dannie's ambition and her engagement to the enigmatic Tyle, a complex, edgy relationship develops between the professor and the actress, based on collaboration, Dannie's desire for a mentor, and Zane's desire for her. The Autumn in Cranky Otter series is a 20th Century American family tapestry, woven of the love stories and luminous psychic threads binding four generations.

Editorial Reviews

Sandee McCann
I very much looked forward to reading A Dazzling Spring. The 1960's New York always brings to mind for me, Jacqueline Susann's VALLEY OF THE DOLLS. I truly enjoyed A Dazzling Spring. The characters are well shaped and fresh and the plot kept me interested enough to read the entire book in one afternoon. I only wish Ms. Winters would have shared more with her readers the feel of 1960's New York, but A Dazzling Spring is certainly a charming find.

If you are looking for a light, show-biz, romance of the 60s, A Dazzling Spring by C. J. Winters will fill the bill.

C.J. Winters did a terrific job though of continuing the 'genealogy' and I am looking forward to the 'autumn' edition! Overall rating: 4.25
Debra Gaynor
A Dazzling Spring by C.J. Winters is a beautiful love story. Winters is a talented author able to use humor, sarcasm, and romance to bring her characters to life. Danica and Zane were made for each other. The plot is interesting and holds the reader's attention. Watch for the name C.J. Winters; you will be hearing it again."--4 Stars
