I just finished Winter Rose by Jennifer Donnelly, book two in the rose trilogy. Once again, I couldn't put this book down. I read this book as soon as I woke up in the mornings and before I went to bed for the last week. The formula was very similar to that of Tea Rose with several split second misses but I was so engaged with the characters that I did not mind some of the predictability. I fell in love with India and Sid and rooted for them the whole way. Donnelly does a remarkable job of telling a love story as well as writing a wonderful villian. I might take a break from the rose series for a while but I certainly play on finishing the trilogy with the Wild Rose.
