Review: Uncertain Spring by Lyn Cote

This was a good story, set in the community where the other Northern Shore Intrigue novels are set. I do believe this book could also be enjoyed as a stand alone novel.

I often see readers asking for stories with main characters who are a bit older than those in their twenties and thirties. Uncertain Spring has a man and a woman who are both widowers and realize that they might have a chance at love once again. Lois has two grown daughters and some grandchildren, as well.

Those who have read the earlier books in the series will recognize Lois’ daughters as Audra and Megan, who were main characters in other novels. The girls had a rocky relationship with their mother after their father died suddenly. It was nice to read a story from Lois’ perspective.

There is a hint of mystery and danger throughout the book surrounding a young woman suffering with amnesia. Lois did a great job of providing a safe place for this woman, while also working to reconnect with her daughters. The romance that grew between Lois and Jacob felt very natural and I was happy that they found each other.

(4 stars)

I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.


Near midnight, a panicked dog barks frantically—not to frighten but to beckon.
Lois has just driven up to her summer home in a March snowstorm, coming north early to be near her adult daughters. Without hesitation she follows as the dog leads her through the thick pine forest.

Finally she glimpses a young woman lying in the snow, unconscious. Lois taps in 911.

In the morning, the girl has wakened in what the doctor identifies as a state of dis-associative fugue, a form of amnesia. Lois takes in the girl as the local sheriff tries to find clues to her identity.

The nearby vet, a mountain of a man, okays Lois to foster the dog. He’s increasingly attracted to this compassionate but oh so refined woman while Lois finds herself drawn to him. Can they take a second chance on love? And why isn’t anyone searching for the girl? Or is someone?
