My Review of Frozen – Anthology Satin Romance
Stoke up the fire, curl up in the chair, and then be prepare yourself to be transformed to a winter wonderland of Love.
Frozen Anthology
Like all anthologies, you expect to read different styles of writing, and interpretations of the title.  As the reader, there will be stories you love, that captivate you, as well as stories that are not your cup of tea. Bearing this in mind after each story, I gave it a rating out of five.  Five out of the eleven stories scored 5/5 the rest between 2 /5 and 4/5.   However, taking into account the stories I did not care for, yet were brilliantly written I have given Frozen

  2. It's hard to review an anthology. Everyone has their own taste and gravitates toward their own likes. Good job, Joanne.
