Book Description

8 Nov 2012

Imagine waking up in a snow globe. . .

That's how travel journalist Krista feels when she arrives in magical Quebec to report on Canada's glittering Winter Carnival.

Over ten sub-zero days Krista's formerly frozen heart begins to melt as she discovers an enchanting world of ice palaces, husky dog-sledding and maple-syrup treats galore. And then she meets Jacques, a man as handsome and rugged as he is mysterious. . .

The two share a secret that could bond them forever, but can they find a way to break through the protective layers around their hearts to warm up this winter wonderland?

. . . let the snow-spangled adventure begin

The irresistibly gorgeous new novel from Belinda Jones will completely melt your heart, perfect for those looking to escape in an exhilarating, romantic story with a little extra magic.

Fans of Lindsey Kelk, Milly Johnson and Carole Matthews will love Belinda Jones's unique blend of humour, adventure and delectable romance.

Review

'Belinda Jones is on top form here in this magical, winter wonderland of a book. It's wickedly funny, achingly romantic and I guarantee it'll make you yearn for crackling log fires, dark nights and mulled wine . . . the perfect read for wintry nights!' (Claudia Carroll, author of Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow?, on WINTER WONDERLAND)

'As original and beautiful as a snowflake. I was transported to sparkling, snow-capped Quebec and enjoyed every moment I spent with Krista on the journey which finally melts her frozen heart . . . totally enchanting and very moving.' (Carmen Reid, author of The Jewels of Manhattan, on WINTER WONDERLAND)

'Brilliantly written, wonderfully evocative and of course funny - it's my favourite book from the author yet.' (Sun on WINTER WONDERLAND)

'I loved Winter Wonderland and it proves what a talented writer Belinda is . . . it was such a lovely read as it was the perfect getaway! . . . All in all, it's a fabulous, escapist of a book, where you could snuggle in bed, with a cup of your favourite warm beverage, and read on and on about the adventures of Krista in Quebec, the magical snow kingdom in Canada.' (chicklitkevinxx.blogspot.co.uk)

'The setting of Quebec was lovely, and Jones' descriptions of the city are just fantastic. A fun winter novel you can read over and over.' (chicklitchloe.blogspot.co.uk)

'I found myself fully absorbed in Krista's adventures in the Winter Wonderland that is Quebec . . . I thoroughly recommend Winter Wonderland. It's my favourite of Belinda's last three novels . . . it's wonderful' (chicklitreviewsandnews.com)

'How does this author manage to wrap you up in the setting so much so that you feel like you have been to the location! Belinda is back in full swing this year . . . I loved each and every character in this book' (reabookreview.blogspot.co.uk)

'A real Winter Wonderland is brought to life in this terrific book!' (tripfiction.blogspot.co.uk)

'This book gives you a warm cosy hug . . . Without a doubt the best thing about this book is the enchanting descriptions of Quebec. I felt I was under a spell; I almost went running for my suitcase and passport! Winter Wonderland is just that - a glorious walk through a snow-sprinkled wonderland with a touch of humour, a loveable leading lady and plenty of adventures' (Novelicious.com)

'This book is beautifully captivating from the very beginning . . . Beautifully written, with a gentle flow, I loved Winter Wonderland . . . Filled with picturesque winter locations, mouth-watering food and exciting experiences . . . just like a hot chocolate, it's packed with sweetness and warmth that leaves you unable to put down until it it is all done!'

You can feel the chill factor from the pages, as Krista finds herself in Quebec, and briefly in Montréal, her mission to bring the Winter Carnival to life on her own travel website Va-Va-Vacation. From the etiquette of the do,s and don'ts in an Ice Hotel (do not wear any cotton because if you sweat it freezes, not good), to sledding with huskies in ice cold temperatures, to ski joring... (what's that? it involves horses and skiers, that's what) a real Winter Wonderland is brought to life in this terrific book!

A great style that bowls along at a cracking pace and some really interesting snippets of info. Would you ever had known that the Inuit made their sleds out of two lengths of frozen salmon wrapped in animal hide? Have you seen the Balto statue of a husky in Central Park as a tribute to his help in a diptheria outbreak (I know, not exactly relevant for Quebec per se - but I bet you will keep your eyes open for it when you are next in the Park!); The Pink Panther was filmed in Cortina...It takes 32 litres of maple sap to make one litre of maple syrup...The Queen Elizabeth Hotel, Room 1724 is where Yoko Ono and John Lennon recorded "Give Peace a Chance".... the longest Cree chief's name is Ahchuchhwahauhhatohapit (that would be great for a spelling bee!)....

So, as you can see "Every City has its Story". And at the end of this tale, you have Krista's Do's and Don'ts, the essential message when planning a trip is "more research = less regret".

5.0 out of 5 stars The perfect Christmas present ! xXx 8 Nov 2012
By realovesbooks TOP 500 REVIEWER TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
I am a big fan of Christmas so other than my favourite authors turning up on Christmas day to play silly games and eat my Christmas dinner surely the next best thing is when one of your favourite authors release a Christmassy book!

I was so delighted when Winter Wonderland by Belinda Jones arrived on my doorstep as this is one writer who get s me in the holiday spirit with her writing so surely she can get me in the festive mood too!

Imagine waking up in a snow globe... That's how travel journalist Krista feels when she arrives in magical Quebec to report on Canada's glittering Winter Carnival. Over ten sub-zero days Krista's formerly frozen heart begins to melt as she discovers an enchanting world of ice palaces, husky dog-sledding and maple-syrup treats galore. And then she meets Jacques, a man as handsome and rugged as he is mysterious... The two share a secret that could bond them forever, but can they find a way to break through the protective layers around their hearts to warm up this winter wonderland? ...let the snow-spangled adventure begin.

Wow..... Although we don't have the festive roast cooking or Santa popping down the chimney this book still brings the perfect backdrop, I am talking the cold chill with our friend snow, cute fluffy dogs pulling sledges..... oh I am in my element!
How does this author manage to wrap you up in the setting so much so that you feel like you have been to the location! Belinda Jones is back in full swing this year, she needs to be on commission because her beautiful and informative writing skill has sparked an interest in me to visit Quebec, now that is saying something for me because I only do Summer holidays!

Climb inside this snow globe, but beware it could get hot enough to melt all the snow!

I admit that it was love at first sight of this book. It reminded me of Tiffany's with it's powdery duck egg blue cover, and it looked like the sort of book that I would adore from the first word. But it didn't happen like that for me. It took a while for me to get into, but now, having finished the book, I can say that I did adore it. It is wonderfully romantic, but not in the usual obsessive chick lit way i.e. the romance is not ever present, it doesn't take over or take anything away from Krista's story of reporting in Quebec. I liked her relationship with her best friend back home, which provide some fabulously funny skype and texting moments.

One of my favourite aspects was the husky dogs, and in particular, the husky puppies!! Belinda's description was so fantastic that I could almost feel their deep soft fur snuggled against me.

I have never been to Quebec, so I can't say how true to life her suggestions and discoveries are. Given the acknowledgements, I don't think I would be let down. Grab a copy and discover Quebec for yourself....

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book. 9 Oct 2013
Format:Paperback
This book is brilliant. It's hilarious at some points and nice and sweet at others. Much better than other similar books as it feels more like real life, it's so down to earth. Plus it's set in a winter wonderland... what more could you want?! Highly recommended.

By Em-J
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Belinda Jones is one of my favourite authors. I love how she transports you to where the story is set you actually believe you are there too & this one doesn't disappoint. It's engaging from the start & draws you into Krista's world. Classic chic lit romance without being ott, with a few chuckles along the way. I can't wait for the next one.
