5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great Romance 17 janvier 2014
Par Big Apple
Format:Format Kindle
I thoroughly enjoyed this well-written romance about a young widow falling in love with a playboy on the remote Isle of Skye. Emma Winston is a compelling character. Author Clarissa Cartharn deftly establishes reader sympathy early on and it isn't long before we are completely caught up in her tribulations. The unusual choice of Skye is a good one and makes for a suitable stage for the events of this stormy romance to play out. Plot develops without sentiment and culminates in a nail-biting, surprising ending. If you like romance that keeps you guessing with smart characters and a richly textured setting, you should enjoy 'Winter's End.' Recommended.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 A good novel 31 mai 2015
Par Cécile
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Nothing exceptional, but quite a good novel to read, with nice characters in a beautiful setting. And in this book, you don't know the end too early, because the heroin has three "lovers-to-be". I enjoyed reading it, and I recommend it.

This author tells a reasonable story, it's a shame that the standard of writing is so poor. I got very frustrated by all the grammatical errors, more editing work needs to be done.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 I'm a guy and I still liked it 9 mars 2014
Par Sirius Knott - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I typically avoid romance novels. Two reasons: I'm a guy and... and I'm a guy. I'm just not the market.

Having said that, I mostly enjoyed Winter's End. It was a slow, rambling exploration of a widowed woman's healing, re-marriage and romance [pretty much in that order]. I won't give any spoilers, but the basic plot involves the widow, a scheming old lady, an handsome but callous actor, and the emotionally constipated brother of the widow's deceased husband.

The descriptions of the Isle of Skye made me want to visit someday. The characters with their decidedly UK sensibilities were interesting. The plot has enough twists and turns to leave you guessing. As with many of the chick flicks I've watched with my wife, I admit to being frustrated here and there. At one point, I clearly recall thinking, "Why would she want to be with either of these dudes?" yet the end resolved itself nicely. There was even a twist in the protagonist's identity that was like an "Ah! I should've picked up on that" moment for me.

My only complaint was the way the character development was handled. It reminds me of the way Doyle sometimes wrote Sherlock Holmes: we couldn't solve the mystery ourselves because a single critical detail was left out until the end. Once we knew that detail, we could put the pieces together and have a hope of solving the mystery before it was revealed. Cartharn likewise leaves out critical pieces of her characters' backstory, leaving this male USAmerican reader angry and confused until it all came together. At which point, I said, "Oh, well, that makes sense now." I'm only deducting one star for this because I suspect it might be an oddment of storycrafting from my fellow authors across the pond.

For those of you who shy away from romance novels because some of them degenerate into torrid sex scenes, I note that there's nothing more objectionable in Winter's End than we might read in Biblical Song of Solomon.

All in all, a pleasant read, one I'm surprised as a guy to be recommending.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 It could have been great 4 juin 2013
Par Liamin - Publié sur Amazon.com

I loved the plot, the characters were mostly enjoyable, too, but I was shocked by the amount of mistakes, in grammar, in spelling, words missing or just appearing without making any sense.
It made me wonder if the author had actually read through the document at all before it was published... I really regret this for it could indeed have been a super read.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 More than just a good romance. 13 mars 2014
Par Mati Raine - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
Sometimes, a love story isn't just about the romance, and perhaps that is what appealed to me so much about Winter's End. Emma Winston moves to the Isle of Skye after being recently widowed, and the charming setting feels like something out of another time. This is the sort of book I would love to curl up in front of the fire with, and I enjoyed having the chance to read it.

There were a few things that knocked this down a star rating for me, however. The biggest was that I didn't really like the men Emma had relationships with. There seemed to be something forceful and controlling in their nature, and it was hard to want Emma to end up with anyone like that. Emma felt passive when it came to these situations, and while she occasionally seemed to stand up for herself, in the end it felt like it was just okay they had acted that way. Emma felt a bit like a possession from time to time, and that made me a little uncomfortable.

I did give a bit more leeway to Mrs. Kinnaird, because I felt the relationship between Emma and her was genuine. There was a little manipulation, but there was a love and a sense of family that stayed in those interactions. Mrs. Kinnaird was a very grandmotherly figure, and while she could be a little bossy, I really felt she meant well. Their interactions were perhaps my favorite ones, and I enjoyed seeing these elements in a 'romance' novel.

The other characters felt well thought out, and I liked the occasional shifts in narration where I could see things from another characters point of view. The flashbacks were a little awkward in places (I felt the first two were placed too close together), but they gradually revealed more about the characters, which I enjoyed. By the end, I felt like the story was balanced well enough, and the writing itself was refreshing. I would look for more work by Clarissa Cartharn in the future.

I really enjoyed reading this book. It kept me on my toes and made me want to keep reading to see what was going to conspire between the characters. You easily fall in love with Emma's character and feel her struggle with her feelings. You laugh at Mrs. Kinnaird, the crazy old lady, and her antics. All in all it was imaginative and the descriptions painted the perfect picture.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Charming 10 février 2014
Par Toni Kerr - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
3.5 stars, rounded up to 4 (love the writing style, didn't love the story)

Emma, a somewhat reclusive young widow with two children, leaves her old life in London to make a new home on the island of Skye, in Scotland. She catches the attention of her elderly neighbor, Ethel, who is determined to put her estate in order and see to the wellbeing of her only grandson before she dies, no matter who she has to manipulate to get the job done.

Clarissa Cartharn has a lovely, romantic style of writing, fitting for a quiet night in a cozy chair, but Winter's End reads more like a window into a small town rather than a romance. Yes, there were technical errors that should have been caught and corrected, but the style is smooth and easy to follow. A little poetic even. The characters were well developed and the setting was lovely-- I just didn't like how everyone was forced to deal with each other, when no one seemed to have any romantic interest in anyone, and all at the whim of a controlling old woman (who was definitely my favorite character of the bunch!).

I received a copy of Winter's End in exchange for an honest review.
