The Stroke Of Winter: A Novel

The Stroke Of Winter: A Novel, Kindle Edition

From USA Today bestselling author L.J. Shen comes a passion- and angst-charged story about a woman caught between a secure relationship and a once-in-a-lifetime spark with her muse.

They say first loves are oftentimes the end of one’s innocence.

Those words couldn’t ring truer for Everlynne Lawson, whose first brush with romance came with a heartbreak…and the thing that seems to follow her everywhere she goes. Death.

After a great tragedy, Everlynne loses all she cares about—her dreams, her family, and her soulmate, Joe.

Guilt-ridden, Everlynne decides to isolate herself in Salem, Massachusetts. A shell of the woman she once was, she takes her days one at a time, careful not to allow herself the joy she believes others in her life were robbed of. But when the mysterious, handsome Dominic storms into her life, it becomes more difficult to stay in solitude. Dominic is different: adventurous, joyous, with lust for life and a passion to make her his.

Everlynne is on the cusp of reinventing herself once again when the old wounds of her past are resurrected, rawer than ever. There is nothing worse than being in love with two men.

Especially when one of them hates you.


Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Having grown up in the mountains, there’s nothing I love more than a wintery cabin getaway: a warm fire crackling and the earth blanketed in a soft layer of snow. And yet, a strange shift begins to take place at sunset. The icy tree branches that sparkled in the day now reach out menacingly as if to grab you with their frozen fingers, and the shadows cast by the flickering flames dance across the walls like ghosts—exactly the kind of chilling setting of this novel.

In The Stroke of Winter, Tess Bell has moved to her family’s old home in Wharton, which she plans to remodel during the off-season into an inviting bed-and-breakfast. But when her renovating unveils mysterious paintings in a boarded-up studio, paintings that portray increasingly disturbing scenes, she begins to wonder why the room has been locked up tight for as long as she can remember. And why it sounds like something is scratching at that boarded-up studio door, almost begging to be let out…

It’s no wonder to me that Webb chose to set her latest gothic novel in the dead of winter, where nearby Lake Superior may be frozen solid, but something else—something sinister—is beginning to thaw. Grab your cocoa and a warm blanket—you may need both to keep the bone-chilling creepiness at bay as you sink into Webb’s latest tale. Oh, and don’t forget to lock up. You never know what might awaken and come knocking at the stroke of winter.
