Hello les dragons! Je vous retrouve en ce début d’année avec une chronique malheureusement fort négative… celle d’Un hiver scintillant, ce recueil de 3 nouvelles de Nora Roberts qui me semblait parfait pour les fêtes. J’avais été un peu refroidi par le Bonheur en cadeau, mais je voulais y croire encore, et j’ai donc tenté une nouvelle fois Nora Roberts ( que je connaissais déjà par certaines romances paranormales que j’avais apprécié). Et bien c’était la dernière. On ne m’y reprendras plus! Et je vous explique plus en détails pourquoi ci-dessous.
