I very much enjoyed this author’s earlier title, One Day in Winter, so was looking forward to reading this book, even though it took me some time to get to it. Another Day in Winter is a similarly absorbing story that follows a host of characters. They include: Shauna, Lulu, George, Tom and Chrissie.
Our most elderly character is George. He has some regrets. How will these affect his grandson, Tom? What are the younger Shauna and Lulu hoping to learn in Scotland, and, what is in store for single mum, Chrissie?
Lots will be discovered over the course of this novel. Ms. Low does a wonderful job in writing about her characters. Readers will care about them!
Many thanks to NetGalley and Aria publishing for this title. All opinions are my own.

First in the trilogy:
One Day in December by Shari Low
Four main characters and a number of their connections feature in this engaging women’s fiction read. The action takes place over the course of one day with sufficient back story to give the novel some depth. The book begins with a character dying in hospital; it will only be at the end of the novel that the reader learns who this is.
As for the characters…Bernadette is married to surgeon, Ken, their union is not a happy one. She, Ken and their two children are one story line. Media obsessed Lila is another; she is involved with Ken and is half sister to the more likeable Caro. Both Caro and Lila’s mothers were married to the same man but they have never met. Cammy wants to marry Lila but gets to know Caro as well. There are others in the novel including Caro’s cousin, Caro and Lila’s parents and an entire French football team! Each chapter follows one of the main characters.
I found this book to be an enjoyable read; one of those novels that is good for a time when you want to relax. There will be another book by this author coming out soon.
