The Widow's Watcher + Giveaway
From Eliza Maxwell, the bestselling author of The Unremembered Girl, comes a gripping novel about the mysteries that haunt us and the twists of fate that can unravel them…
Living in the shadow of a decades-old crime that stole his children from him, reclusive Lars Jorgensen is an unlikely savior. But when a stranger walks onto the ice of a frozen Minnesota lake, her intentions are brutally clear, and the old man isn’t about to let her follow through.
Jenna Shaw didn’t ask for Lars’s help, nor does she want it. After he pulls her from the brink, however, Jenna finds her desire to give up challenged by their unlikely friendship. In Jenna, Lars recognizes his last chance for redemption. And in her quest to solve the mysteries of Lars’s past and bring him closure, Jenna may find the way out of her own darkness.
But the truth that waits threatens to shatter it all. When secrets are surrendered and lies are laid bare, Jenna and Lars may find that accepting the past isn’t their greatest challenge. Can they afford the heartbreaking price of forgiveness?
I absolutely fell hard in love with this book. A true treasure of a read. You have to order a copy of The Widow's Watcher right away.
Jenna and Lars had me from the get go. They were quite the pair. What with their "insults" or really I should say Jenna's insults towards Lar's attitude. When Lar would crack a smile, I could not help but smile as well. They were both wounded souls who actually needed one another. Although, I liked Jenna's deceased daughter, Cassie's voice whispering in Jenna's ear along the way.
Eliza Maxwell pens a heartfelt, lovely story that reached deep into my soul with her endearing characters that will stick with you long after you have put down the last page in The Widow's Watcher!
