Review: Winter Longing by Tricia Mills

A plane crash in Alaska takes Winter’s first love away forever . . .

When Winter's boyfriend is killed in a plane crash in the Alaskan wilderness, she's robbed of the future she'd only just allowed herself to believe might be hers. Winter and Spencer had been destined for one another. And after his death, Spencer's presence continues to haunt her.

But when her next-door neighbor becomes an unlikely friend, Winter begins to accept all that she can't change. Can she open herself to a new future . . . and a possible new love?

Winter gets her heart broken by the loss of her best friend turned recent boyfriend, Spencer, and we get to see her slowly put her heart back together with the help of her neighbor, Jesse. Winter's grief process is long and sometimes difficult, but it helped her heal.

The flashbacks at the beginning of many of the chapters were extremely cute and probably my favorite parts. I loved seeing Spencer and Winter interact in the past. Spencer was obviously such a sweet boy who loved Winter.

I definitely enjoyed this book. It was such a touching story, and I am glad I had the chance to read it. Winter Longing was a cute story, and I loved it. It is a quick read that is perfect for the summer even if it does take place in cold Alaska. If you have the time, I recommend picking it up.

Rating: 4/5
