After thirty years, Bernadette knows it’s time. She’s ready to leave her controlling husband… and never look back.

Over the course of twenty-four hours, four lives are about to change forever…

**My Review**

As always with Shari Low, as soon as I started One Day in Winter, I was unable to put it down. Told from multiple points of view from the main characters: Caro, Cammy, Lila, and Bernadette, this is about one whirlwind day when everything changes for the main characters and goes nothing as expected. Some changes are wonderful, some are heartbreaking, and some are fate stepping in saying “don’t do this.” But this was an addictive read from beginning to end. 

My favorite character by far was Bernadette and I was cheering for her the entire time. I wasn’t sure about both Caro and Cammy for a great deal of the book. They were likable but seemed to be missing a little something. Maybe it was courage, backbone, faith? I’m not sure exactly but as the novel neared its end, I felt that each of them had grown so much.  I loved them and loved their stories, it just took me a while to really invest in them. Then there’s Lila… Obviously, she isn’t written to be likable, yet there were times I couldn’t help but feel sorry for her because her priorities were just so skewed. She was beautiful, somewhat intelligent, supposedly successful. However, she let her greed and obsessions take over her life. But at least to her standards, it all worked out o.k. in the end, lol. 

I truly enjoyed and highly recommend One Day in Winter, as I do with almost all of Shari Low’s novels. It’s packed full of such colorful characters, twists, surprises, and a lot of laughs. I love how everything sort of intertwines and intermingles together, yet each character is enough on their own. This is a fun and addictive read that makes you feel as if you’re watching it play out in real life or a movie, rather than curled up with a book.
