Winter’s Warmth: The Royal Teashop Book 3 by Ginny Clyde gently reminds us when it’s time to say goodbye, and that no matter how hard it may be, all fairy tales must end. Olivia is grounded. But with Thanksgiving around the corner, she decides to celebrate this time with her family, all the while understanding just how to be grateful, despite the situation she was forced into. She’s also in a relationship with Ryan, the young man who’d saved her time and time again, and was there for her despite everything that’s happened. With the year dwindling down into just a few months, Olivia learns a secret that could shatter her relationship with Ryan. Unlike the first two books, Ginny Clyde paints an almost nostalgic picture of what it means to let go of someone you care about.
I’m proud of Olivia. While she did seem mature at the beginning of the series, it’s clear that she still had to grow. From her fall from grace, to the fact that she had to go to a public school, Olivia had to deal with aspects of a life she didn’t ask for. Even so, it was because of her resilience and her faith in her family that she managed to pull through. Not once did she come across as a spoiled rich brat; she was poised, confident and, even in the face of hardship, she still stood strong. The same could be said of her brother, as well as her friends. Her relationships were all relevant to her character, which made the trilogy all the more satisfying.
