I was drawn to the title of the book. I'm not sure if that's weird or not but that's how I roll. I guess I could blame that on all the times I would roam the aisles at the library while looking for books to read. I really love the cover of this book. I love the font and the silver is just perfect. You have to see it in person to appreciate just how pretty this book is.
This should appeal to people who like to read certain books during each season of the year.This just screams read me during winter. I don't really do that because I just recently was able to find the third book of a trilogy that I read during the summer because I was finally able to read all three books. I do admit that I want her gloves and her hat. I also think this book cover is a perfect example of why I want to become a book consultant. There's no sign anywhere on this book that this is the third book in a series.Don't worry it can be read as a stand alone but I prefer to read books in order although some books are more flexible than other books. I won't read fantasy out of order.
I can only speak for myself but if I'm checking out a book I don't typically look inside the book to see if the book is part of a series. You can see the list of her books and it does show this as the third book. The only time I've opened a book to peek inside is to check to see which number a book in a series that I was currently reading was called because so many series out there aren't numbered which I find annoying. I can't be alone in my annoyance. It could just be as simple as putting a 3 on the top of the spine and a three beneath the name of the series. Since the name is smaller I would imagine most people aren't going to take a good look at it while they are deciding on whether or not to read this book.
This is the first time I've read a book by Robin. It all starts with a funeral so I'm assuming this is picking up where the last book left off. It does start in a way that it feels like a stand alone. Maybe I'm strange but usually when I do end up reading a book out of order because I wasn't able to read the other books in the series I can often feel it while I'm reading the book if that makes any sense at all. I didn't get that when I picked up the book and started reading. I also like that the character that died stays a part of the book in flashbacks. This is the story of three people who are suffering the loss of a loved one and their struggle to get on with their lives. I will be reading more by this author.
