Review: The Awkward Truth

cover picture The Awkward Truth

This, another bit of Lee Winter brilliance, starts as a romcom but soon goes into mystery mode, weaving a yarn of corporate and legal intrigue.

The main character, Felicity Simmons, wants to be just like her ice queen boss, Elena Bartell (from The Brutal Truth), so she takes on a case that should be easy.. and done very subtly and without ruffling any feathers.

Add a charity, its vet and other workers, the vet’s pet dog, and life on the not-so-sunny side of the street, and poor Felicity is out of her depth. 

Why is the Amazonian vet so irritating yet oddly irresistible? What happened to the donated money? Does Felicity loathe animals?

Hint: Don’t start The Awkward Truth late in the evening, you’ll want to stay up all night reading it. Also, don’t read it at night if there are other people around, or you’ll run the risk of waking them up with your giggles.

Brilliant, yet again. 


Review: Hotel Queens

Ok, first a note about the author and your view on her.. If you thought Lee Winter was already great, prepare to be amazed, because she’s just topped herself. If you thought Lee Winter was good but overrated, read this and be prepared to change your opinion. This book is simply brilliant!

Everything is top notch: the characters, the dialogue, the drama, the sting, the opposites-attract romance that sizzles (and gets steamy).

Amelia is the ice queen character of this story: a VP of a family-owned chain of hotels, trying to get an even higher position. Kai, the fire to Amelia’s ice, is from a rival hotel company, known for her talent to make great deals. They meet without knowing who the other is and flirt… but then reality interferes.

Hotel Queens by Lee Winter is not a short, neat little story set in the corporate world; it’s more like a thriller, but without the dead bodies. Twists and turns and intrigues galore, Hotel Queens is a long ride and one you’ll enjoy immensely.
