    From the first chapter, I knew I held something unique in my han

    From the first chapter, I knew I held something unique in my hands. Carly is a heroine in her own class—a woman who has been wounded, physically and emotionally, in a boating accident. Throw in the detail that she has trained in sailing all of her life in the pursuit of Olympic gold, and then pair that with a post-traumatic phobia of the ocean she grew up loving and the unfortunate fact that the love of her life is to blame for her accident and you have some of the best conflict I’ve ever read in this genre. This was a great read. The ins-and-outs of sailing captured my attention; this is a subject area I know absolutely nothing about, and the details were interwoven with the narrative seamlessly. By the end of the book, I felt as though I had been given a glimpse into a world I had only viewed from very far off. And on the subject of the end of the book—Wow! What a climax. I was on the edge of my seat. Well done, Ms. Oliver.
    Note: I was provided an ARC for review as a professional courtesy. No monetary or other compensation was involved.

    I could smell, taste and FEEL this book. I was totally immersed

    I could smell, taste and FEEL this book. I was totally immersed in the community of Haven Bay with its myriad of characters. The sailing and life-saving aspects were fascinating and I was gripped at the climax, totally unable to put the book down. 
    The heroine, Carly, is struggling to come to terms with losing the use of her leg - and her Olympic gold dreams - after a terrible sailing accident. She's lost all confidence on the water and is in constant pain. Her ex-lover, Daniel, who persuaded her to sail that day has returned after leaving her two years ago. He feels responsible for her accident and is determined to have her forgive him and take him back. 
    I ached for these two to overcome their problems and get back together. Daniel totally proved himself worthy of Carly in the end and every time they were together I found myself holding my breath, desperate for a reconciliation. 
    A beautifully written and captivating story.
    Highly recommended.

    There’s something about being near the sea in the winter that strikes a chord with me. I grew up near the coast, so a novel set in a Cornish fishing village was always going to appeal.  The economy might rely on the tourism during warmer months, but there’s something special about having the sea to yourself in winter. Cold winds, salty air and romance – what more could I ask for?




    Of course in the real world the sea can be a taker of life, it’s not just for romancing over. And that’s where this novel scores highly – the author hasn’t shied away from the life-taking powers of the tides.




    Having witnessed the sailing competitions during the 2012 Olympics I am, of course, an armchair expert and there was enough detail about sailing to keep me happy.




    This was a lovely read, the power of the sea leapt from the pages and there was enough sizzle to keep me sailing along. I hope the author releases more of her work – I think she’ll garner a loyal following within this genre.

    Excellent novel. Ms. Oliver sets her story on the Cornish coast,

    Excellent novel. Ms. Oliver sets her story on the Cornish coast, and I was THERE, ladies and gentlemen, amid the storm-tossed seas and small coastal town, quiet in the dead of winter, yet still charming, with its cobbled streets, warm pub, and sweet little shops. Her heroine, Carly, a former sailing champion, has been injured in a terrible accident, her leg mangled. Will her body - and her psyche - ever heal? And will the return of her former crew mate, now an Olympic Gold Medalist, help or hinder her recovery? No spoilers here, but I read the novel at a fast clip and something happened toward the end that took me by surprise. You see, I normally do not cry when I read, yet near the ending, I was so swept up with the characters and the plot that tears filled my eyes - sad and then happy tears - because of heartfelt tragedy and, afterward, a compelling resolution. Carly's world is so arresting, her bitterness deep and unrelenting, but she is redeemed in the end by lessons learned and a realization she has new worlds to explore. And yes, love conquers all.

    Winter Storms is beautifully written, rich in detail, and charge

    Winter Storms is beautifully written, rich in detail, and charged with emotion. I was astonished at how descriptive it was right from the
    beginning. I could almost taste the salty sea spray on my lips, feel the biting December winds whipping my hair in my face and
    penetrating my clothing. I thought, wow, this author has a talent for writing settings. Then she brought the characters to life with that
    same remarkable skill and I was transported entirely.

    This is a moving story of destinies rewritten by tragedy, strong relationships broken, and losses that go beyond most love stories. The
    emotions run deep, yet they're still as raw as fresh wounds. 

    I found myself pulling for these damaged characters as they tried to revise and rewrite a new future and learn to heal from the inside
    and out. Could there ever be a future when the past seemed to be an insurmountable obstacle?

    I highly recommend, Winter Storms.

    I received an ARC of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

    "Dont worry. I heard of this. This kit has a sickness called bluecough. The victim will not eat or show any symptoms of whitecough blackcough redcough greencough or bloodcough. They will slowly die if not given the proper treatments." She said before pulling a few petals of water lily and sky flowers. She chewed it into a pulp and pried open the kit's mouth and gave it the herbs.

    Firesteel to Owlfur

    Firesteel walked up to his mate Owlfur. Then he kissed her as passionately as he could. Owlfur woke up and gasped. "Thank Canus Lupus! The old saying came to life!" Said Firesteel. After all the celebrating, Firesteel curled up next to his mate and fell asleep.
