WINTER'S SHADOW by Virginia Cavanaugh is a quick but emotional read. Though the basic storyline is not unique in the romance genre, the background of the heroine is compelling. The story has a nice flow with some mystery mixed in to keep the reader intrigued.
Julia Farris left her hometown with a new husband she was sure would bring her happiness, only to live for years in fear. So abusive was her husband, she was forbidden to return home for her own parents' funerals. When she finally breaks out of the bonds that kept her in her marriage, she returns home and right into the arms of the one man she ever truly loved.
With the death of his parents, Mark Webb left his position with the local police department to manage his parents' bed and breakfast. He's lonely but finds himself with this new opportunity when Julia returns. Seeing she has returned to her hometown with nothing, he offers her a job and slowly builds a friendship again. Once his high school girlfriend and forever the woman he has loved, now she becomes his lover.
As Julia works to gain control of her future and establish a new life for herself, she finds herself swept back up into the feelings she's harbored for Mark through all the years she spent away. But the danger from the years spent away continues to resurface and she can't be certain she's left it behind for good.
Ms Cavanaugh does a nice job of tying together the pieces of the storyline, leaving enough mystery to keep the reader flipping the pages and creating the happily ever after that all romance readers live for.
