    What is up with her older books having the main male character be such an ass and being emotionally abusive and the main female character cowering down and taking it without her speaking her mind? I was really enjoying this read up until the part of then marrying. That's when it just kept me angry the way Grady was treating Cathy all because of his insecurities and he had no communication at all up until the last few pages of the book.

    The main characters were unlikeable! The relationship lacked honesty and communication and the woman was just not soft hearted.

    4.5 Stars I kind of fell in love with Grady. Is he a grump. Sure. Was he kind of a jerk to Cathy when his insecurities creeped in and he felt hurt? Absolutely, but aren’t we all? Cathy wasn’t exactly honest and fair towards him all the time either but let’s be honest, they started a relationship for all the wrong reasons. But they also both knew what they were getting into so neither can totally play the victim when circumstances changed and they weren’t forthcoming about their feelings. Anyways, I notice that I enjoy Debbie Macomber’s older books more than her newer releases so maybe I should go back and read those for a while.

    That Wintry FeelingI couldn't understand why she let him treat her the way he did. No man is worth being talked to and treated bad. I didn't care for this book at all.

    I’ve become a big fan of Debbie Macomber after reading a couple of books from the Blossom Street series. A combination of multidimensional, down to earth characters and a realistic, compelling story that keeps engrossed a person of a short attention span like me, is just classic Debbie magic.Though this one surely had that page turner quality, the characters seemed less powerful and lacked that extra something that the author usually creatively throws in to make them unique yet believable.I found Grady quite difficult to sympathize with. His ardent anger toward his ex-wife went beyond an understandable level. I would have liked him more if he was more supportive of his daughter when she was confronting issues of her own.The rather steamy romantic scenes kind of put me off too. I never experienced anything like this from her previous books, so was a bit confused.Nevertheless, the clear-cut writing style without being too wordy, so characteristic of Macomber, is definitely present. The minor flaws are acceptable overall, considering this being one of her early works.

    This is not the feel-good, Hallmark fluff read I so wanted it to be. That Wintry Feeling probably rates as one of my least favorite Debbie Macomber books. This is an older one, repackaged as one of her "classics." It's a bit dated, but not much. This one, like some of her other older books, contains more descriptive scenes of intimacy. I noticed they didn't pick up in their level of detail, nor did the characters go all the way, until after they were married. That being said, the descriptions were mild compared to other authors' books.But all that is not the reason I disliked the book. I didn't care for the way the characters treated each other. They married quickly, for convenience and under some false pretenses. When things got tough, they treated each other horribly, mostly the husband. Horribly! And the woman took it submissively. There were only five fully likeable characters in the book, and they were minor characters (the daughter, the main character's mom, the main character's best friend and friend's husband, and the main character's husband's co-worker). The main character's ex-boyfriend and her sister recently wed after the main character and ex-boyfriend had a very messy break-up. It's obvious that they still have feelings for each other, yet they go on to marry other people out of spite, almost as if punishing each other for the break-up. The main character's husband marries her because he needs a mother for his child (first wife died, plus first marriage was really rough for him). It's no wonder none of them are truly happy in their marriages. The ex-boyfriend makes matters worse with his lecherous actions through letters and in person. The main character ultimately realizes how shallow her love for her ex was, and that she really was not in love with him anymore when she married the other guy. Honestly, she should have given herself more time to heal and figure out her feelings. She realizes them too little too late and it pretty much ruins her marriage, which is later saved in a nice and tidy, quick ending.Oh, and the dog dies. Need I say more?

    I HATE THIS. Although they'd been married three months, she still was amazed at how much he desired her. Always gentle and encouraging, he was a wonderful lover. Meekly, she submitted to him. She was, after all, his wife.This story is dumb. I bought it because it had a dog on the cover, it was less than $1, and I'm reading on a serious budget. This was a waste of my dollar and I want it back!I forgot what the main chick's name was and I don't care to look it up but "She" meets Grady Jones because she is the special needs teacher for his severely dyslexic daughter. Our MC moved to Alaska when her boyfriend left her for her sister and they married. So she went north! Cathy! Her name is Cathy. So Cathy isn't in Kansas anymore and when she runs into Grady and his daughter in Alaska, he decides she might just be pretty enough to care for his kid and clean his house! Since he really doesn't have the time. Being a small business owner and all. So he asks her to marry him after like 2 days because his housekeeper is retiring and his kid is getting super whiny and wanting "affection" and some shit.Now, you might think I'm making this up because I'm mean-spirited and obviously hated this book. You'd be wrong! This is the legit story line. So, they get married and Cathy moves in - becoming his maid/wife/cook/nanny. He informs her that this is going to be a "real" marriage even if they don't actually know each other and have almost no feelings for one another. Cue the most awkward, eye-rolling, cringe-inducing sex scene there has ever been. It wasn't even on-page and I couldn't take it anymore. DNF @ 62%. This is stupid and I wish I had spent my precious dollar on some gum or something. At least then I could've gotten some enjoyment out of it.

    Hidden loveCathy was in love with Steve and an argument turned the whole world upside down. The next thing she knows Steve is marrying her sister. Cathy moves from Kansas and takes a job in Alaska trying to forget StevGrady lives in Alaska with his daughter who has reading and social problems. His wife has died and he is buried in his business.Cathy has Grady’s daughter as one of her special students. She tries to talk with Grady but he is always so busy. Finally she goes to his job and fireworks fly. Instant dislike for both parties.From the moment on there is never a dull event. As with a well written Debbie Macomber book, get your box of Kleenex, your blanket and settle in for several hours of intense reading. Well done Debbie !!!

    After being betrayed and watching her ex-fiance marry her sister, Cathy Thompson knew whe had to move. So, she moved from Kansas to Alaska determined to start over. She is a special ed teacher now in Alaska and has Angela in one of her classes. The child is dyslexic and talks very little. It seemed to Cathy that Angelas' father would not be considered for Father of the Year. When Cathy met Grady they each had an instant dislike for the other. They say there is a fine line between love and hate. Read That Wintry Feeling and learn about that fine line. I loved every minute of this book and was sorry to see it end.

    This is a reissue of an earlier Debbie Macomber novel. I believe she did update it a bit for modern times. The lack of cell phones, however, was weirdly noticeable.It's a typical Macomber novel. Nice, level headed teacher is treated badly by an ex-boyfriend and leaves to teach in Alaska. She meets a student whom she bonds with - and finds out that the student's father is one of the blind dates her friend has set her up with.There is a pretty quick romance, some family drama, a wedding and birth and adoption action. Nothing drastic but easy to read. I read it in a day - mostly while waiting around hockey arenas.

    Debbie Macomber is a great writer. I discovered her books after many had been written. This was an e-book release of a book written years ago. It happened to be a bargain online!I enjoyed reading it. Her comprehension of human behavior is amazing. This was a very cozy romance story.Speaking of the e-reader edition, the percentages for the book being read totally took me by surprise. It was something in the 80 plus percent that I had read and the story ended. Then commenced an excerpt from another book. The book company should have had the 100 percent mark when "That Wintry Feeling" ended.

    As typical, Debbie Macomber wrote this story very well! It kept my attention throughout the book! Conversations & characters were very believable. Cathy was dumped by her boyfriend as he chose her sister over her. Needing to get away, she moves to Alaska. She meets a pilot, Grady, who has a daughter. Will their interactions lead somewhere? I've read most books Debbie Macomber writes as I know it will be great! I found that I had read it in the past but continued to read it again, You will enjoy it also

    Heart warming but dated romanceIt started as an interesting and sweet, wintry romance, but as the novel progressed, I found it hard to sympathise with any of the characters. The story itself was a little dated. It's set in pre digital times, which wasn't what I expected. The couple met partly via online ads and wrote each other short letters. Both their attitudes to love and marriage were also dated. It was nicely written, so I managed to read it to the end, which was heart warming.

    This book had me smiling and laughing out loud several times with Grady and Cathy's banter with each other. There were times that he annoyed me in his treatment of her, but in the end I understood why, but if they would have just been forthcoming with each other than most of their issues could have been resolved sooner.

    This was a confusing book at times. The adult main characters did not seem realistic in their choices and emotional reactions. I kept reading because Ithought there was soon going to be an explanation of why the husband seemed to be backing off of the relationship but when it came it didn't really seem to be what an adult would have done.

    For a woman brave enough to move to Alaska after having her heart broken, I wish Cathy had enough gumption to be more forthright with her husband in their marriage. She had no problem standing up to him before but she let things linger too long without discussion after they were married. I guess the story would have been shorter if she had spoken up but I found it frustrating.

    Extremely predictable and I didn't like the main man in it. So it rather ruined the story. Excellent writing and I do believe this book is early in Debbie Macomber's writing career. I was happy when it was over. It was an easy read, but too much anger.

    EnlighteningAnother absorbing story by Debbie McComber, one of y favorite authors! I was trying to give it four stars as it really isn't give star material. I liked that it was set in Alaska as I have family there. I thought the characters were very suited to the plot!

    It brought back memories of all the Harlequins that I read back in the 80’s when I was a teenager. This was a typical formula. Overall, the story itself wasn’t bad, but I had forgotten how the guys in these stories were such jerks! No wonder I stopped reading them.

    I’m not a romance reader, but this was a sweet story. Read it in one night. Felt like I was reading a script for the hallmark channel. Maybe it was a TV movie? It was a quick read and I enjoyed it. Wrong kind of dog on the cover
