Winter Promise made me instantly biased in its favor when the main character decided to build and run a town library. I enjoyed reading this book in much the same way that I enjoy a bowl of mashed potatoes. It may not be a four course meal or a spicy Mexican dish, but it hit the spot. It's good comfort "food." I like the town of Porterfield, Texas and the Muldoon family. It's a friendly place and a lively family. The romantic possibilities for Abigail keep the reader guessing and add some humor and drama. She is a feisty and engaging character with an independent spirit which I liked. It was easy to see why the men fell for her. I also thought the author did a good job of portraying the doctor's inner struggle as he fought his feelings and was forced to deal with the pain of his past. Overall, a lovely and comforting story.
