Summary

Nothing’s ever been handed to Olivia Santini, and she’s proud of her work ethic. After seven years as the assistant manager of the Evergreen Resort and Spa, she has ideas to improve the bottom line and increase reservations. When her manager resigns, Olivia puts in her résumé and waits for the interview. The job is practically hers - all she needs is the paperwork.

Hayley Boyd Markham is the youngest Markham, the only girl, and the most spoiled. An artistic soul in a family of business-minded type, as she’s always felt like a bit of a screwup. After an embarrassing party situation, her father puts a hold on her allowance and gives her an ultimatum: Spend the winter as manager of the Evergreen Resort and Spa and show him it can turn a profit. Only then will he reconsider her future (and her inheritance).

A chance encounter in the woods is filled with chemistry and promise, and though neither Olivia nor Hayley is looking for love, they both feel the possibility. Until they get to work....

Did not expect the plot, but was OK

I didn't know the author and if lesbian romance is her thing, I had no clue. Got me by surprise, but it was nicely written for the most part. The excessive dramatisation and voice-altering of the actor who read the book tho was quite annoying at times.

love Lori Prince

The narrator is one of my favorites! she does a bang up job. I also love GB and I'll always buy her books. This story was alright. I loved the no back biting, angry ex, type of drama. it's got the right amount of angst. But, it's the ending that ruined it for me.

**spoiler alert stop reading here to avoid spoilers*** stop!

you've been adequately warned

the whole family dynamic has changed and it's just awkward for me. the parents getting together was a bit too much for me. they could've been friends, and made family gatherings more awesome. instead if they get married (since they're dating now)... the two MCs become step sisters and they're together and that's too Jerry Springer for me. ruined the whole book for me.

Awesome!!

Ok so I have to start of by saying Lori Prince is absolutely astounding! I love her so much she makes the story come alive! I was a little on the fence at first because the last Georgia Beers book I listened to just seemed to drag on and the narrator was horrible but this one was amazing! No cliff hangar just an all around good love story!

Great story and great performance

I like both Georgia Beers and Lori Prince. These two make a great pair for storytelling. I liked all the characters by the end. I was not amused with Benton to begin with, but it worked out. I like the MC pairing and there was just enough conflict to keep you burning through to what happens next. I definitely recommend this title.

Loved it

Loved the story but especially the two main characters and you could really feel the chemistry between them in this book, but mainly because of the amazing narrator Lori Prince, she really brings life to a book. I love Georgia Beers books but especially when Lori is the narrator.

A walk can clear your head to see with your heart.

Olivia Santini had an ordered kind of life. She organized and ran the Evergreen Resort because she loved it.
Hayley Boyd Markham was an artist set adrift after her mother died. These two strong, dynamic and creative women meet on a walk in winter. The dialogue brings an instant connection for the two. When they do give into their feelings the sparks touch the heart. Lori Prince does a magnificent job of helping the reader feel the emotions as they build. One of my favorite moments was Hayley and her Dad reconnecting. The quickie after 4 days apart was a cherished romp for this reader. I loved The story and it's gentle romance.

So Darn Cute

This was an insanely cute story. I ended up finishing it in almost record time because I couldn’t put it down. I’ve heard nothing but good things about Georgia Beers and I can see why now. This story was well written, insanely cute, and just the kind of story I needed to warm my heart.

One Walk In Winter tells the story of a hotel assistant manager and a spoiled brat – not really a brat, but a girl who used daddy’s money to enjoy herself for far too long. Hayley is cut off from her credit card by her father, the owner and CEO of Markham hotels and sent to basically hotel purgatory (or so he thinks). One beautiful winter morning Hayley and Olivia collide and things will never be the same.

The story itself is full of lots of cute moments, a lot of “this can’t be happening” moments and “oh no, I can’t stop how I feel”. The two main characters Hayley and Olivia were both adorable and were both trying to fight it.

There were a few moments where drama insued but it was needed to make this story more believable. No one goes through no trouble to find the person of their dreams and the same was true about this story – though the moments weren’t too bad. The story ended in such a cute way I had happy tears rolling down my face as it ended. I really wanted to know what was going to happen and would gladly take a second book to look back into Hayley and Olivia’s life in a year or two.
