Winter’s Secret is a story about letting God have control. Both of the main characters struggle with an aspect of this. Rodd struggles to turn to God for the everyday things in life and Wendy struggles to accept the fact that God does not hold the past sins of her family members against her. Rodd and Wendy are a complex couple. I liked them, but felt sorry for them as they struggled to work through events that caused them pain.
This book has an exciting mystery to solve and interesting side characters that made the community truly feel real to me. And the author did a great job of making me feel immersed in the harsh winter of northern Wisconsin. I enjoyed the twists and turns in this book. The mystery was not easily solvable and kept me guessing all of the way through it. This was a very enjoyable story. (4 stars)
I received this book from the author. I was not required to write a review, but happily do so.
