Struggling film student Kitty Shakespeare is determined to make the most of her new job as nanny to major producer Everett Klein’s son, Jonas. It might not be exactly the career she’d hoped for when she moved from London to LA, but thanks to her habit of freezing up in interviews, this is her last chance to impress a key player in Hollywood – if she can get this right, then surely he’ll take a moment to look at her work. However, what Kitty hasn’t allowed for is Everett’s sexy-as-hell brother, Adam – but love at first sight this is not.
Adam Klein may be sexy, but he’s also gruff and rude and in no way ready to make a fool of himself over the nanny – not after the year he’s had. All he wants to do hole up in his cabin and hide from the brother who destroyed his life. If only he could find it easier to ignore the way Kitty makes his heart race . . .
As Christmas approaches, Kitty and Adam come to realise that the course of true love never does run smooth – and just maybe, it’s more interesting that way…
A heartwarming Shakespeare Sisters Christmas romance from the bestselling author of Fix You.
My third Carrie Elks, and the 2nd in the series, I found The Winters Tale to be a very enjoyable read. Once again, Elk’s captures human emotion with characters built upon substance, and creates a story line showing the full potential for love and redemption. The Winters Tale is the story of Kitty Shakespeare, the youngest of the Shakespeare sisters who we met in Summer’s Lease.
Kitty is an aspiring film maker when she ends up as a temporary nanny to a show business family. Currently living in the US, she travels from LA to the families house in West Virginia to watch over Jonas Klein and finds herself spending time with the younger of the Klein men, the prickly Adam. These two do not start out on a positive note, their initial encounter is tense at best. The joy in this story is watching how Kitty manages to bring out Adam’s softer side.
This also lands Kitty is a precarious position as the Klein family, brothers Adam and Eliott, are in the thick of a family dispute. Elks handles this beautifully with the details slowly coming to light and also causing an even larger misunderstanding. But there is great need for reckoning and Kitty finds herself in the crossfire as well. Indeed, the holidays with the Klein family means inevitable drama. The drama means the chance for healing and second chances all around.
The Winter’s Tale is a great holiday read and I highly recommend it. I’m really enjoying getting to know the Shakespeare sisters and I’m very much looking forward to the next book in this series.
