The final part of Once Upon a Winter is here!!

Specifically, this edition (4/4) sees Hannah embracing her inner Colombo in an effort to uncover what Mitchell's ex-from-hell Martine has been up to. On top of that we find out who savagely attacked Ross, and we finally see Gina and Ross come clean about their secret relationship to Ross's parents.

All the lose ends are tied up perfectly and there are a few surprises (one of them heart-achingly sad) along the way too. All in all this has been a wonder

So here we have the final part of Tilly Tennant's four-part novella series Once Upon A Winter. I am actually really sad to get here as i loved all four parts of the book, for me splitting them up, rather that a whole book made the story that more interesting and intense.
In this last part as we see Hannah and Mitchell get to the bottom of his Ex wife's affairs and his work partner's scheming ways. Will things get nicely wrapped up for this couple?..Hannah's sister Gina and partner Ross now have t

Brilliant story

Glad to have read all three books. Laughed and cried with this one, but a happy ending in the end for all.

After reading the first two novellas in this series and being utterly enchanted, the third novella had begun to lose its lustre and charm for me. I had high hopes for this novella as I really hoped it would regain my interest and really deliver.
Hannah's problems with Mitchell have just settled down when all of a sudden she and Gina had to deal with Ross's beating and the unjust and desperat

As with my previous reviews, this will be fairly short to try and avoid too many spoilers plus the fact that the novella itself is short.
To recap then, in The Accidental Guest we are introduced to the main character, Hannah, and her sister and niece, Gina & Jess respectively, on Christmas day. All seems fairly normal - banter, gifts, turkey and trimmings, until an unexpected knock at the door introduces them to a man with head injuries and memory loss. Whilst waiting for paramedics, the girl

One Starry Night is the final installment of the four-part novella series Once Upon A Winter by Tilly Tennant. The Accidental Guest introduced the main characters, and their story continued to unwind through I'm Not In Love and Ways to Say Goodbye. Finally, this novella is the long awaited conclusion in which the fate of the main characters will be revealed.

The story is about Hannah and Mitchell, as well as Gina and Ross. Hannah and Gina are sisters, struggling to have relationships while trying

I was anxious to read this final part of the four part series .. you really do need to read the others first to gain full enjoyment otherwise it will all be a blur.

The end of book three left us wondering who was responsible for Ross’ predicament .. so in this novella we get some answers. Lots of loose ends to tie up revolving around … Hannah and Mitchell, Gina and Ross, will Jess choose her father or settle into her new routine. What response will Gina get from Ross’ parents etc.

Tilly manages to

I do suggest you read these four parts to this story in order.
Everything builds upon the Accidental Guest who appears at the door at Christmas.

I would have preferred this "series" was done in one or two books but I am grateful I did not have to wait between reading the pieces.
Plese refer to each of my reviews to get caught up. I tried not to give too much away.

At the end of book 3 there is a major development and we are not sure what we will find when the sisters arrive at the hospital. What hap

This review was originally posted on Star Crossed Reviews I received this book for free for a Blog Tour in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.Thank you to JB for letting me take part in this tour. As you are probably aware I have really enjoyed Tilly's other books and I just had to be part of the tour for the last book in the series.

In this final part we learn who has been stalking Hannah, who attacked Ross and what Mitchell's w

On to part four!!! This is the last book of Tilly's Once Upon a Winter series.

I think the most exciting part of this part was the mystery around Mitchell's business and his colleague Graham for me. What was Graham up to.

The story around Hannah and Mitchell as well as Gina and Ross continued of course and I just loved following them around. What will the future have in store of them?!
And of course I was just reall curio

I received this book as part of a book tour. Finally, we get to read the conclusion to the Once Upon A Winter's Night series! In the last book, Mitchell got some answers about what happened to leave him staggering in the snow on Christmas Day. However, Hannah believes there is even more to the story and takes it upon herself to do some investigations, with the help of her sister, Gina. Gina has worries of her own, knowing that she and Ross need to come clean about their relationship to his famil ...more

This was the final of four parts of Once Upon a Winter. It was probably the best of the four and I really enjoyed it. The pace was great and I loved how the relationships had grown as the book drew closer to its end. There was a sad part but it was dealt with well and it was made to really be a positive. The main characters of Hannah and Gina were great throughout and I’m glad with the endings they received. I have read quite a few books now by Tilly Tennant and I have found them all to be good ...more

Hannah is sure who Justine's lover is and other dodgy dealings that are going on but how does she break this news to Mitchell.

Ross is badly beaten up and the black volvo seems to be involved again but why is Gina feeling guilty and what has Jess go to do with. The time has also come to admit to Ross's family that they are an item but how will that go down!

The loose ends all get tied together and great endings all round in this lovely series - well worth reading

Have you heard the old adage that "it must get worse, before it gets better?"
That is the case for this book, however it is the last book in the series so we know everything will get better.
You will have to read the book to find out what Hannah and Ross and Gina and Mitchell are up to.
There are ups and downs, joy and sadness, and overall a good ending to a good series.
I hope you like these books as much as I did.

This final part of the story wasn't quite as compelling as the first parts, especially the nearer to the end I got the more rushed it felt.

Overall I enjoyed the whole story, but wish this last and what I'd hoped to be the most exciting part, could have been more detailed rather than a final sprint to get over the finishing line.

Wow another great segment, all of these books have no chapters and each book is like its own chapter. I would like to see what happens to them and how they all are in the future.

Amazing stories that are all pulled together beautifully in this last book with some lovely quirky twists. Enjoyed all these four books and bring on the next straight away. Amazing quirky writer

Liked the story line

Enjoyed all 4 "Once Upon A Winter" books. Characters were well developed. But why the weren't combined into one book was disappointing.

Tilly Tennant was born in Dorset, the oldest of four children, but now lives in Staffordshire with a family of her own. After years of dismal and disastrous jobs, including paper plate stacking, shop girl, newspaper promotions and waitressing (she never could carry a bowl of soup without spilling a bit), she decided to indulge her passion for the written word by embarking on a degree in English an ...more
