      I wasn't sure what to expect from this book but from the first chapter I was hooked. The story is very well-written and the characters are immediately likeable and intriguing. The setting is beautiful and the book was very easy to "get into". The character of Nell was well observed and I also felt that the author wrote well when writing from the children's point of view.Nell arrives back in her old home village after years of living away in London as a single parent of twins, nine year old Joshu [...]

      I'm not quite sure what I was expecting when I started reading this book, but I was blown away. There is a line on the cover that says, "a modern day fairy tale" and it is. However, it's hard for me to put my finger on what fairy tale I've read that it's most like. The story seems to be a brand new fairy tale, and a lovely one at that. I've read one of Ms. Baglietto's previously published books and this fantasy fairy tale is nothing like the contemporary novel I'd read. The story was slightly re [...]

      As the curse of the book bloggers reading slump had me grasped in it's evil hands, I half heartily started Once Upon A Winter. Not knowing what to expect at all I started with a sigh. An hour later I put aside my kindle and smiled to myself, already Once Upon A Winter had restored my heart and pulled me out of my reading slump.From the very beginning I was mesmerised and calmed by the unique and soothing flow it has upon you. The gripping plot thickening had me not wanting to do anything else at [...]

      I was really confused about how I was going to review this book. The fairy tale element of it was extremely well done, wasn't too over the top while still engrossing and believable. It was almost effortless the way this book flowed, and the beautifully written passages were almost lyrical at times, without seeming forced in any one direction.That said, this book could have been just as good without the fantasy element. I honestly would really like to read another book by this author without any [...]

      i wasn't quite sure what to expect from this book when i first started to read it, but within the first couple of pages i was hooked. On the cover it says it a 'modern day fairytale' and i believe it is, it's an unusual story as it combines reality and fantasy. I love the fact that the author kept me on my toes throughout the story, as whenever i thought i guessed something, it turn out to be completely wrong, which is one of the things that i really liked about it.

      Once Upon A Winter is a lovely book for winter, full of charm and fairy-tale magic. The setting is perfect - a cozy Welsh village complete with a Gingerbread cottage and mysterious folklore. It's an unusual story, where reality and fantasy meet, but the characters keep the plot grounded and interesting. Thoroughly readable, it's easy to lose yourself in this adult fairy-tale, especially on a cold winter's night!

      A nice gentle fairy tale. Loved the central character of Nell. Passed the time well on a boring plane journey!

    • Annie Burrows says:

      A modern fairy tale with a hero who has stepped straight out of a story book, only to lose some of his gloss when confronted with the reality of mortal life.

    • Martine Lillycrop says:

      The apparent premise is fairly straightforward. Boy meets girl, girl has baby(ies), boy disappears. Left to raise her twins alone for seven years, Nell heads back to her home town in Wales, hoping to pull things back together and move on with her life. Just as new romance shines, though, who should reappear, but Hello!The difference with this story is the hero - though more accurately anti-hero, since he doesn't appreciate the consequences of his actions - isn't your regular `boy'. This is the t [...]

      Interesting romance conceptThis wasn't what I expected necessarily by the description. I don't normally read romance stories. It was a sweet simple love story and was enjoyable enough. The thing that made me give it 2 stars was the distracting switching of the POV characters. I would have preferred the story from either 3rd person solely or Nell's point of view.

      This was an interesting book where a mother of two moves back to her families house after being on her own for a while. she learns different things about her husband and her child. Really good book will have you guessing the whole time.

      I actually found this book just a little bit weird. It started well, but I got a bit bored towards the end.

    • Elle Field says:

      Did not finish.

    • Wendy says:

      Worth a read, although I could guess where the story was going.

    • Beverley says:

      Although a sweet story and one which I enjoyed reading, I did find the plot very predictable.

    • Vicki Sharman says:

      Not sure at first but really enjoyed it towards the end, I feel the end was rushed thru and could have expanded a bit but i guess that leaves it open for another x
