's review

it was amazing

Happy publication date to this book <3 <3.

Oh MY!! Ok.. my first thought is why in heck have I waited SO long to read a Elin Hilderbrand book?! No excuses! This was FANTASTIC!

I've got to go back to all her previous series and get going here! ;).

I fell in love with everything about this book. The characters are relatable, deep, emotional, and the setting is godly! haha. Hilderbrand I think you've just convinced me where I want to take my honeymoon with my new husband next year!

Irene's husband dies in a tragic helicopter accident... along with his deception of living an entire double life in the island of St. John's. Can you imagine.. not only finding out your husband is dead but also living a double live in a beautiful island of St. John's?! Yikes....
In grief, Irene drops everything along with her two sons Baker and Cash who travel to the island of St. John's. Of course, nothing is as easy as it may seem and secrets upon secrets are waiting for them.

Winter in Paradise is the perfect amount of romance, heartache, love, and tension. I would not categorize this as a romance per say but it's so much more than that and I am SO glad I read this. If this is anything like Hilderbrand's previous novels... I am definitely in for a treat!

I loved Irene Steele's character the most... but characterization is so strong in this novel. This is a must read my friends!!

Beautifully well crafted novel!!

Huge 5 stars for Winter in Paradise! Highly recommend.

Huge thank you to Little Brown and Company and Netgalley for the advanced arc in exchange for my honest thoughts.

Jen Great review, Kendall!

Kendall Thank you so much Jen!!! 😊❤️

Melissa Yeah, WHY have you waited so long to read an EH?! I mean I’ve only been trying to tempt you for who knows how long! 😂 💜 Seriously though, glad you gave her a chance. You really can’t go wrong with any of her books, but the Winter series and The Perfect Couple (her first attempt at suspense) are FANTASTIC! 👌🏻😬☀️ Although, be warned, you’ll want to go to Nantucket, too. 😉

Kendall Yasss!!! I saw it on NG and was like you know what I’m doing this haha. She’s fantastic! Yes.... I was shopping on amazon for her winter series... although my kindle price is cheaper so will just buy from there :). I heard Perfect Couple was amazing! Might have to read that one next 😊👌.
