***THIS BOOK WAS GIVEN TO ME IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW***
Jason was gone and they had eluded Bobby. For the first two years they hotel hopped and moved from state to state.That got old fast. Wil convinced them to finally settle down in a town called Horsenose when they reached Texas. To make the attempt at a normal life. It started out okay, but after three years there, he regrets the decision. Nik and Ingrid got hitched and were expecting so it was only natural for Rita to eventually want the same. He loves her, but he just isn’t ready. It’s wreaking havoc on his relationship.
More drama ensues as their new home gradually accepts them as their own. Revealing new secrets and drama that bring more trouble not only between Wil and Rita, but the denizens of Horsenose.
And then Bobby finds a way to make a much unwanted appearance.
I was excited to receive the second book in this series in exchange for an honest review. In the first book we learned that the characters all have special abilities as we weave through their teenage years. With a unique theme and definitive character development, Houston leaves the reader wondering what became of this group of friends.
In Wil’s Winter, we find out. Traveling five years down the road, we find these memorable characters as adults. Taking a chance on a normal life, they are longing to settle down, start families and have some peace. This dream, however, is not in the cards.
Wil’s inability to commit causes strain in his and Rita’s relationship, leaving Rita unfulfilled. After all, Ingrid and Nik were already married and expecting their first child. But, wait. Relationship drama isn’t all that has happened in five years. Houston holds true to form with plot twists and surprising revelations. The characters remain interesting and lively. The powers, oh the powers, remain wonderfully wicked.
This book was far more organized than the first and had me turning pages quickly. Houston is a creative and talented authors and I have enjoyed being able to watch her grow into her craft through this series. I believe she’s one to watch.
