Winter's Secret
by Lyn Cote

Smashed heirlooms, ripped upholstery and rifled drawers—who is breaking into homes during a record-breaking snowy winter, vandalizing and stealing.

Whoever it is—is targeting the most vulnerable—the seniors of a small northwoods town. As the new sheriff, Rodd Durand, home again to small town Steadfast, Wisconsin, takes on the Snowmobile Burglar.

In the course of her duties, Wendy Carey, the home health nurse, discovers each new break-in and wants more than anything to stop him. The small town reels as the burglar eludes capture and steps up his crimes. A vindictive woman and a secret baby heighten the suspense. When Wendy and Rodd begin to fall in love, family complicates matters. But the real stumbling block to their love lies within. Can they break through their own insecurities over the past?

Note to readers: This series (Winter’s Secret, Autumn’s Shadow, Summer’s End) came out a decade ago from Tyndale House Publishers in trade paperback and large print. This is the revised and updated edition. In the intervening years since this series first debuted, technology (i.e. cell phones, etc) has changed so much that these books needed sprucing up. Besides when an author writes a story, it feels like her child. And I want my “children” to look their best as I send them out into the reading world once more. So I hope you’ll enjoy these books in their second improved edition.

Lyn has published two more romantic suspense series. If you enjoyed this one, drop by her website and Click “Lyn’s Books” and then “Suspense” to find them listed. All are for sale on Kindle.
