About the book:
Lily Winter's wings are folded so tightly around her daughter that when empty nest arrives, she feels she can no longer fly. But Lily's lonely, widowed life changes in a heartbeat when she goes to visit a woman who is almost a stranger to her---a woman who also happens to be her mother. During their fiery reunion, her mother reveals a dark family secret that she'd been hiding for decades---Lily has an identical twin sister who was put up for adoption when they were just babies. Without looking back, Lily---with her fear of flying---boards a jumbo jet and embarks on a quest to find her sister which leads half way around the world to Melbourne, Australia. Befriended by imprudent Ausie, he might prove to be the key to finding her sister. But her journey becomes a circle that leads her back home to attempt a family reunion and to find the one dream she no longer imagined possible-the chance to fall in love again.
This humorous book is a fun book to read. Oh, it's a look at a heartbreak (a romance has to have a few of those) and it's easy to sympathize with our heroine and our hero each of whom have their issues. One is dealing with the death of her spouse and his infidelity toward their marriage and the other is dealing with survivor's guilt somewhat after he falls asleep behind the wheel and accidentally kills his sister. Worse yet, his parents have cut off contact with him and he ends up packing his bags and leaving the country to heal on his own. At this point our 2 main characters end up meeting and the story takes off from there.
If you know someone that loves to curl up with a good romance that funny and enjoyable to read Winter In Full Bloom should be right up their alley. I found myself laughing out loud as I read and it's unusual for me to do that right at the beginning of the book. This book is an enjoyable read from open to close and as usual Anita Higman has a winner. (BTW, I love the cover of this book too!)
