From Eliza Maxwell, the bestselling author of The Unremembered Girl, comes a gripping novel about the mysteries that haunt us and the twists of fate that can unravel them…
Living in the shadow of a decades-old crime that stole his children from him, reclusive Lars Jorgensen is an unlikely savior. But when a stranger walks onto the ice of a frozen Minnesota lake, her intentions are brutally clear, and the old man isn’t about to let her follow through.
Jenna Shaw didn’t ask for Lars’s help, nor does she want it. After he pulls her from the brink, however, Jenna finds her desire to give up challenged by their unlikely friendship. In Jenna, Lars recognizes his last chance for redemption. And in her quest to solve the mysteries of Lars’s past and bring him closure, Jenna may find the way out of her own darkness. 
But the truth that waits threatens to shatter it all. When secrets are surrendered and lies are laid bare, Jenna and Lars may find that accepting the past isn’t their greatest challenge. Can they afford the heartbreaking price of forgiveness?

“There was a moment I had to tell myself that this is just a book…”

MY REVIEW:
The Widow's Watcher
This is my 2nd 5 star review for some amazing #LSBBT authors and I think this is my favorite read of May thus far! This book made me cry and made me smile. I loved every minute from beginning to end. It was just icing on the cake when I realized that Eliza Maxwell lives in the same small town as me!
This story follows Jenna Shaw who is grieving after a tragic accident in which she lost her family. She stumbles upon Lars Jorgensen who also knows a lot about loss and in their journey throughout the novel, the two get to know each other and realize that they can help each other find the answers they need in order to live with their grief everyday. Throughout the novel, Jenna has an inner monologue with her deceased eldest daughter who sort of acts as her conscience. At first, I completely did not understand this because it is introduced as the first sentence in the book and wasn’t really properly explained until much later, BUT I got over it the deeper I got into the plot.
Eliza Maxwell makes the characters in this novel come to life completely. Each character seems completely real and complicated from the two main characters to the unsubstantial side characters. She has a way of giving depth to the characters emotions and envokes the same emotions in the reader. I legit bawled for the last 100 pages. My lovely signed copy is completely tear stained. I am okay with that though, not many books can bring out that sort of emotion from me.
This book is for fans of thriller and mystery. My favorite part is definitely the plot twist that wraps up the mystery within this book (I wish I could say more but I cannot and will not spoil any part of this book. You need to read it!!)
