Review: Blaze of Winter, by Elisabeth Barrett

After a case goes wrong for social worker Avery Newbridge, she heads home to Star Harbor to reassess her life and help her sick aunt run the inn. What she wasn't expecting was a distraction in the form of one Theo Grayson. The gorgeous author is home for his own reprieve, and when sparks fly, they both need to figure out what they want if this romance is to last.

This is a new Star Harbor romance as part of a series, but they are stand alone reads. I felt that the conflict was very weak in this book, and though the plot was a good one, the timing threw it off. There were also several repetitive phrases. In saying that, I really like the author's poetic writing style. The town, secondary characters, and, at times, bumbling heroine saved the book. There was also a small mystery element to the story, which should keep you reading to figure it out.
