Playlist for WINTER SWANS by Danica Winters

I loved the process of writing Winter Swans (the latest book in the Nymph Series). While I was writing, I often found that I needed a source of inspiration for certain scenes.
This was the list of songs I created when I needed to set a scene! I hope you enjoy this candid look into my writer’s brain!

My Opinion:
After reading The Nymph’s Labyrinth(book 1) and Montana Mustangs (book 2) I wasn't expecting Winter Swans (book 3) to be as good as it was. In my opinion the first two books just barely make it as 4 star books because I was expecting so much more. I really loved Winter Swans though and would give this book 5 stars. All three books have a story about a different shape shifting nymph. I loved the characters in Winter Swans the best. Winter Swans begins with the funeral of Harpers sister who dies in the second book. Even though all stories have different characters with their own story they all pretty much connect. I'm really hoping there will be another book about Chance's daughter really soon. These book are all good but I would only recommend them to adults because there is a lot of sex.

  1. Thank you so much for posting and participating in the tour. You rock! xx


  2. I've not read any books yet. This one intrigues me. I grew up outside Boston, MA and going into town for the swan boat rides was always a special treat. Because of that swans have always held a special place in my heart.
