4.5 stars for Winter Storm by @elliegray58 #romanticsuspense #romanticmystery #bookreview
Title: Winter Storm
Author: Ellie Gray
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Willow Daniels has a heart of gold and is willing to help anyone who needs it. When she helps Ethan McCormick one snowy night, she may have made the biggest mistake of her life. Trapped by a winter storm in a tiny North Yorkshire village, Willow is forced to re-evaluate everything she believes in and wonders if anyone is truly who they seem.
Fate may have brought her to Ethan, but as danger closes in, she must draw on strengths she never knew she possessed in order to protect the man she has grown to love.
Protection—not only against Ethan's worst enemy but also against himself.
Two worlds crash into each other and are held together by nature. This isn't the start of a Nat Geo flick but a description of this intense romantic suspense. Willow is an innocent in what is a terrible world outside her village. Ethan is a strident force for good in that terrible world.
Their coming together and subsequent time together is the zeitgeist of the tale. The world of Willow is brilliantly described. The reader feels like they are in a small village in Yorkshire. The suspense is one to capture the imagination of the reader. The action scenes are intense.
That the reader is left with a bit of a wonder as to why everything happened is a flaw. That Willow is left defined as an oddball is also a severe flaw.
Recommended to fans of British mysteries/suspense. Recommended to fans of books about undercover police work. Recommended for fans of that hard to define romantic mystery/suspense.
My Rating: 4.5 stars

I love to write heartwarming, contemporary romance, and romantic suspense novels, with characters I really want my readers to engage with. I live in the beautiful East Riding of Yorkshire in the UK and, although I work full-time in the public sector, my favourite pastime, when not writing, is wandering around old stately homes and castles, or sitting at a pavement café in the sun and watching the world go by – always on the lookout for something that might spark the idea for my next novel.
I enjoy engaging with both readers and other authors, and am a proud member of the Romantic Novelist Association. Feel free to contact me and chat about all things romance through my social media pages, which you can find at the bottom of this page.
