description

Eh, this book is in a cross between DNF and completed. "Why?", you ask? Well, after the first 20% I merely just skimmed it to the finish since I wasn't invested in it at all. I know it sounds like I was reading this out of glutton punishment but I just had to know how the hell the dang book was going to end!!

SO, IN A NUTSHELL... Winter's Shadow" was merely just okay in my book. Nothing I haven't really come across but it was not horrible. I guess you can say that it merely was just not for me....more

Winter’s Shadow is a quick charming emotional read. The story is not unique, but I loved how it followed and the way the author tells it, it kept me interested and full of emotions. I liked the mystery in the story, It had me really thinking.

One of Ms Cavanaugh's best works. A story told with passion and compassion, in which the reader is immersed in the characters, emphasizes with them, and cares about their fate. I fully recommend this book.

You'll find it all inside: Suspense, Desire, Kidnapping, and Love. This is the first Virginia Cavanaugh, but the blurb pulled me in and I loved it. The story flows well and is hard to put down. The scenes are described well and times gets away from you as the pages fly by. Her secret had a way of following her, like a cold and eerie shadow, from the desert in Arizona to the cold winter in Edinboro, Pennsylvania. And now a bit about the story...

Julia and Mark were sweethearts in junior high and h...more

Running away from a really bad marriage ashamed and afraid oh golly gee that in itself is a steamer trunk full that could weigh a person down and on top of that try living day to day with it. To top that off try meeting up with a high school sweetheart and now is very much alot of man what's a girl to do? Security sometimes lies in being back where you are from and the familiar can sometimes hold back the fear. Rekindled feelings and emotions can also breathe life back into a dying soul.

Clare C's Review

Julia has escaped from an abusive husband. She returns to her hometown and her high school boyfriend looking for a fresh start. I thought this was a cute, sweet premise. She’s realized the mistake in judgment that took her away from Mr. Perfect in the first place, and she’s going to seize the life she should have had. It appealed to the romantic in me.

Some of the character development was uneven and the dialogue seemed stilted, but the characters are likeable, and I rooted for...more

Living for years amidst a whirlwind of fear and danger, Julia Farris finally snaps free from the bonds that kept her in Arizona. But when she arrives in her hometown of Edinboro, Pennsylvania, she realizes she’s jumped out of the frying pan and into the fire.

With the death of his parents, Mark Webb went to part time at the local police department to run his parents’ bed and breakfast, a job he’s begun to think very lonely until his old high school flame shows up.

As Julia tries to seize control o...more
Haley Whitehall
This is a short romance about an abused woman on the run who returns to her home town and falls in love with her high school sweat heart. It took me a while to get into this story although both Julie and Mark were both believable characters. The author did an exceptional job with Julie's traumatic past and how it affected her present relationship with Mark. I was hoping for more action and suspense. This is a story you can easily finish in a day.
