Hello sassy people! Today’s post is about Canadian Winter by Kimberly Ann! Thank you, Kimberly Ann and RMWB for providing this copy in exchange for an honest review!
(Logan Creek #3)
by Kimberly Ann
A widowed single mom, a tattooed brewery owner, and a winter they will never forget.
After losing her husband, the last thing Mandy Adams wanted in her life was a man. Being welcomed into a tight-knit circle of friends, her plan was thrown to the wind in the form of a persistent and devastatingly handsome brewery owner. Caught between protecting her two children and giving into her desires, Mandy needs to decide if she can let her guard down and love again.
On the verge of expanding his brewery, Zach Richardson is living the dream. His days are filled with making beer and his nights with drinking it and hanging out with his friends. The last thing he’s looking for is love, especially in the form of an insta-family, but the addition of a certain redhead in his circle of friends will make him rethink everything he thought he wanted.
Torn between his workaholic lifestyle and a taste of family life he didn’t know he wanted, Zach needs to find a balance and prove to Mandy he can be the man her family needs.
Will he be able to convince her to be his forever Valentine, or will Mandy turn away at a second chance at true love?

My Rate: ⭐⭐ 2/5 (This may sound harsh, but my rate is based on the quality of writing. This book was written in the third person, which made it harder and more confusing to read, being that 99,9% of the books I read are first-person (but that is just a personal preference). Also, I don’t know how else to describe this, if not by saying that it was stiff. I didn’t see much depth or emotion. And the plot was a bit weak for me. The major conflict was not major enough, in my opinion.
It made me sad, because this book had a lot of my favorite tropes, but it just didn’t live up to my expectations.)
Equality rate: ⭐⭐⭐ 3/5 (It is honestly neutral. I like the widow point of view, I always like books like that. However, it was just not deep enough for me and I didn’t enjoy reading it much.)
Adjectives and general thoughts: Had a good premise, but the execution wasn’t good enough.

Bye sassy people!
- I know that some comments I make about decent guys on my posts are the bare minimum a guy should do, so no, they don’t deserve to be treated like gods for doing the minimum, but at the same time, I’ve read a lot of sexist books and I appreciate authors who make characters that can serve as role models and examples of how a decent guy acts and what a loving and respectful relationship looks like. I believe we should always encourage these authors and bring attention to the ones that still write sexist characters and stories.
- I make a lot of comments about sexism and healthy role models in books, but a lot of times these characteristics don’t make the book a bad book and definitely don’t make the author a bad author. Please never shame these authors and these books for these comments, I simply feel that we need to have awareness of the less than ideal situations some books bring us, and not use the romanticized problem as examples of what a relationship should be. Most of these authors are still amazing, and the content they write doesn’t reflect directly with their personal views and opinions. Always make sure to respect and be kind to everyone, even while criticizing their content.

One of my goals in analysing my readings was to talk about important topics, like feminist and consent, because literature, art and culture influence us, and I believe we should always encorage authors who talk about this topics.
