It’s 1834, and Susanna Lorican is one stressed out bride. She wakes the morning of her wedding to a vicious snow storm, and the day only gets worse with an injured reverend, wedding gown issues, and a horrid brother in law harassing her. But Susanna is determined to marry the love of her life, Camden Beckinworth. The odds seem stacked against the couple tying the knot. Will true love prevail in the end?
Forever Winter is a short Regency set novella by newcomer Amber Daulton. The story is easily relatable to the modern day frazzled bride. The writing is well done and the plot interesting and sweet. The reader isn’t bogged down by a lot of period speak, but instead the language is easy to understand. Susanna is an interesting character, but I wasn’t overly keen about her hot temper, and that took away a bit of my enjoyment. This is not to say this takes anything away from the novella.
I love a good short story, and this one doesn’t disappoint, especially if you are a reader who enjoys a good Regency as well as a sweet read. I think this novella will appeal to a wide audience of historical romance readers. I look forward to what Ms. Daulton will give us in the future.
