THIS WINTER NIGHT
THIS WINTER NIGHT (2) by Janice Sims: Colton Riley escapes to his family’s log cabin on the day his father passes away. Due to a power outage, he ends up on the doorstep of Lauren Gaines, the next ex-wife of his business rival. A snowstorm results in the two being confined for two days and left with no choice but to yield to their urges. When they return home, the two must decide if their romance is real or just based on circumstances. There is a lack of fluidity between scenes, making the novel appear choppy in places. The drama, though needed in a novel, seems to come out of nowhere and doesn’t really fit with the storyline.
