Review & Giveaway: A Warm Heart in Winter by J. R. Ward
Everyone in the Black Dagger Brotherhood’s mansion gets into the preparations, and the after-party takes on the epic- and immortal- proportions when Lassiter forms the Party Planning Committee. The celebrations promise to be all that the couple deserves... until a Nor’easter land locks Caldwell in a fierce storm, and things go from lighthearted to deadly dangerous.
Battling nature and responding to emergencies, Blay and Qhuinn get separated, and when a catastrophic chain of events puts one of their lives in jeopardy, the night they had so looked forward could mean the end of everything...
I was so glad to read A Warm Heart in Winter. I really like both Blay and Qhuinn and don't mind more of their story and always Ward delivers.
I think one of the things that I like about her writing is the way you can laugh, cry, and get pissed all on the same page. It takes a good author to do that. For most of this book, I felt that way. I was almost physically tired after reading it.
I know that sounds silly but it's how I felt.
I was a little shocked at something that happens in the book. I would wish for a holiday style book it would have been happier. Silly I know, but still how I feel. I'm not saying I didn't enjoy the story because I did, but I'd have loved to have had the whole book be a happy ending not just the ending of the book.
I do know that's not how Ward rolls and if I'm going to read her then I have to deal with that fact. That might be why I didn't get overly upset with the shocking things that happen in this book. I know by now how they are going to go.
As a whole, this is a good story that you'll enjoy if you're a fan of the Black Dagger Brotherhood. Many of your favorite characters are in the story and you get to visit with them. I'll mention that this is a long book, like 400 pages or so. It drags a bit at the end which makes me think it could have been a little shorter.
