WINTER WONDERLAND is a story about a man and woman who go away together for a mini vacation. It immediately became apparent to me that Ms. Wilde is a very skilled writer, describing the vacation setting in such a thorough way that I could easily envision the locations in my head. In fact, without trying to, I felt like I was literally watching the main characters while they were outdoors in the cold yet serene and tranquil setting Miss Wilde created. While in that setting, the reader becomes a voyeur to the one sex scene included in this book. Having a book with just one sex scene is fine as long as that one scene is a good one! Again, Ms. Wilde impressed me with her writing skills and has the MC's participate in some very exciting, "activities" yet the sex scene was incredibly, unbelievably brief. I personally would have preferred to have had less description of the wilderness surroundings and a longer sex session! Hopefully Wilde's other male MC's are more virile than this one is!
This was an extremely short story so, knowing that before beginning the book, I did not expect much of a storyline; my assumptions were correct! Fortunately though, there was no cliffhanger, the story never felt rushed or did I feel like parts were missing.
I am an audiobook addict and have listened to hundreds of them! There are some audiobooks I cannot endure listening to even though it is written by one of my favorite authors simply because I cannot tolerate the narrator's voice. Fortunately, that was not at all the case with this audiobook..... Narrator Lia Langola has the most natural, genuine sounding voice I have ever heard! Her voice perfectly fit both the male and female characters without sounding pretentious or silly. She did not over exaggerate any emotions, pauses etc. but read the book seamlessly and smoothly. I was very, very impressed with her, so much so that I'm now wondering if aspects of the book that impressed me were a result of Ms. Wilde's writing style or if Ms. Langora's narration was responsible for that!?! I will definitely be looking for more audiobooks narrated by her!

This was a good read, just not anything amazing. I would definitely say read it if you want a quick little holiday smexy. But there are other books out there with more story and more steam. Not a lot going on in the story department and the steam was not as detailed as I expected.
I listened to the audiobook Narrated by Lia Langola, who has a great read. I love the quality of her voice and the energy she puts into the read. I have listened to several of her narrations and am never disappointed.
This is a nice little steamy read.
