***THIS BOOK WAS GIVEN TO ME IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW***
In fairy tales, the princess meets her prince. He is her first, last and only love. But life isn’t a fairy tale, and not everyone gets it right the first time. Often, we love many, each teaching us a lesson. I had four great loves of my life that came and went like the seasons. Not all of my loves turned out to be princes. Some were nothing but a villain in shiny armor.
Will I find my true prince charming?
Or am I doomed to face the coldness of winter alone?
My name is Brynn Carsten, and these are the seasons of my life…
This was author Katrina Alba’s debut novel and she knocked it out of the park. She
took us on an emotional roller coaster, that had you gripping a tissue one minute, yelling at the characters the next and at the same time gasping with disbelief as the “seasons” in Brynn’s life took yet another turn. The writing in this book flowed smoothly and the author included so many beautiful descriptions, details and knowledge of the area that the reader felt like they were a part of the book. Katrina’s writing is heart felt and emotional and makes the reader succumb to the emotions in the book with little to no problem. You feel all of the emotions as Brynn falls in love, you can feel the hurt that she goes through, and you can mentally find the courage to move on only to face the next challenge just at Brynn does throughout the book. There is no way to predict what she was going to throw at the reader next.
I found myself relating to Brynn and was lost in her world, or her seasons. The ending was a happy ending, but yet the reader feels so emotional, that you almost wonder if you are happy, sad or elated that Brynn found her perfect season. There are so many wonderful characters throughout the story, including Adam and Trevor (my favorites) that you feel the loss of the friendship that you created with them as you were reading the book. You think about the characters and the story long after you have finished reading it.
This was an amazing first book and I cannot wait to see what comes next from her. I know that anything she writes will automatically be added to my TBR list! Make sure that you check this book out and leave yourself plenty of time to read it, because once you start, you won’t want to stop! It is an amazing read! Enjoy ~
