A plane crash in Alaska takes
Winter’s first love away forever . . .

When Winter's boyfriend is killed in a plane crash in the Alaskan wilderness, she's robbed of the future she'd only just allowed herself to believe might be hers. Winter and Spencer had been destined for one another. And after his death, Spencer's presence continues to haunt her.

But when her next-door neighbor becomes an unlikely friend, Winter begins to accept all that she can't change. Can she open herself to a new future . . . and a possible new love? 


5 Stars!

Tricia Mills has written a beautiful story! I could not help but cry at some parts in the book. Tricia did such a great job at describing the way Winter felt, that I felt like I was in her shoes.

Winter has always been in love with her best friend Spencer. She finally got the courage to ask him out and when she does, Winter finds out that Spencer has always cared about her too. After finally getting the chance to be with Spencer, Winter loses him in a plane crash. Her whole world fell apart overnight. She felt she had nothing to live for. Not only did she lose her best friend, but she lost the love of her life as well.

Just when she thinks that she cannot be happy again or ever care for anyone else, her neighbor Jesse comes into the picture. Winter and Jesse live next door to each other and their parents are very good friends. Only thing is, Jesse is part of the popular crowd and a jock. They never really looked at each other in that way before.

This story made me cry, laugh and smile all at the same time. Just when Winter thought that without Spencer she couldn't live and move on, life took a twist and she found herself feeling again and learning to let go.

The characters in Winter Longing seem so real and are easy to like. I truly felt like I was in the book watching from the out crowd. Beautiful beginning and beautiful ending. This will not be my last book by Tricia Mills. A MUST READ!
