"Winter in Full Bloom" by Anita Higman is the novel of an emptynester-widow who has attempted to reunite the relationship with her mother that is 10 years estranged. Lily's mother is a piece of work. She's a nasty woman that no one would normally be friends with. In fact, she had to hire someone to be her friend. Upon meeting her mother, she discovers that she has a twin sister that was given up for adoption due to illness. She travels to Australia to meet her sister and along the way meets Marcus, a fellow Texan living in Australia, and sparks start to fly.
This book is a good book for reading on the beach. It amuses without being to involved or hard to follow. It is an easy read. I like that the reader can get to know Australia. I have never been and other that Crocodile Hunter, know very little. This book will make you want to go there on whim, cuz..... well, why not? I only wish the reader could have gotten into Lily's head a bit more. I received this book for free in exchange for a review from The Book Club Network.
