Winter Cottage
Winter Cottage | Mary Ellen Taylor
15 posts | 11 read | 13 to read
A gripping novel about family secrets...and coming home for the first time. Still grieving the loss of her wandering, free-spirited mother, Lucy Kincaid leaves Nashville for the faded town of Cape Hudson, Virginia. She goes to see the house she's inherited--one she never knew existed, bequeathed to her by a woman she's never even met. At the heart of this mystery is the hope that maybe--just maybe--this "Winter Cottage" will answer the endless questions about her mother's past...including the identity of her birth father. Rather than the quaint Virginian bungalow Lucy expected, Winter Cottage is a grand old estate of many shadows--big enough to hold a century of secrets, passions, and betrayals. It also comes with a handsome and enigmatic stranger, a man next in line to claim Lucy's inheritance. Now, as Lucy sifts through the past, uncovering the legacy of secrets that Winter Cottage holds, she'll come to discover as much about her family history as she does about herself. In searching, she could finally find the one thing she's never really had: a home.

This is the book I‘m reading. So far, it‘s okay but I‘m not liking it very much. I‘ve only listened to the first 5 chapters and I don‘t have any idea what‘s going on. I‘m kind of having a hard time following the story but I‘m doing the best I can.

A freebie from Amazon when they sent me the wrong book and I decided to check it out. Quick read with some solid writing but few real surprises - yet enjoyable!

Enjoyed the book, easy read and some good twists & turns. The cons would be that it didn't wrap up very well, it was too quick. Although I suppose it leaves room for a follow-up book... Also, as others have mentioned, weren't the two main characters a little too closely related to be involved together? But other than that, good book and I'm looking forward to more books by this author.

⭐️⭐️⭐️ A sweet, simple mystery surrounding an old mansion in a VA shore town & family mysteries it holds. Lucy returns to her Mother‘s hometown to bury her ashes & take ownership of The Winter Cottage. But it comes with conditions, secrets, & some kissing cousins (which I found very odd that no one bats an eyelash). There were a few editing issues, useless twists, & wraps up too quick. But I really enjoyed it.

NeedsMoreBooks My school and college friends are my soulmates. I love traveling, too. And OMG, Friends is my favorite show, ever ❤️ 3y
MoonWitch94 @Crazeedi We all live within 90 minutes of one another but we went to college 3 hours from our area. It‘s so crazy how it‘s worked out. We try to get together monthly (even with half of them becoming parents now). It‘s pretty special. And I cannot wait for new season of the GBBS! 3y
MoonWitch94 @robinb yes!!!! ♍️ @NeedsMoreBooks I‘d be lost without them. It‘s so rare that we‘ve found our people & kept up with them! Friends makes me happy! Do you have a favorite episode? 3y

Meaw_catlady What‘s your tattoo going to be? Also I‘m trying to grow a green thumb as well! Thanks for sharing yourself 💕 3y
MoonWitch94 @Crazeedi The ache never goes away, does it? The loss of a parent is the only universal experience we have as humans. You can‘t understand until it happens to you. Hugs to you, too 😘 3y
MoonWitch94 @Meaw_catlady It‘s going to be Harry Potter inspired. It will be a wand, and the magic coming out of the end will be “Be Happy” in my Father‘s handwriting; around it will be the HP quote “Those that love is, never really leave us” in a HP font. ❤️ 3y
Meaw_catlady @MoonWitch94 that sounds so perfect and amazing! Hope you find the perfect artist to capture that! ❤️ 3y
robinb ❤️ your genres! 👍👍😊 3y

4/5 ⭐️

I‘d love to see this one made into a Netflix movie. I felt like it flowed well between the flashbacks and had a lot of elements that would show well on screen. #romantsy #mystery

Just started, a little slow getting started. Chesapeake Bay and the Eastern Shore of Virginia is where the book is located.... so I'm struggling on😀

While I did really enjoy this, I found it very difficult to keep track of the family tree. Thankfully the author put an ancestry tree in the front and I probably referenced it 30 times.
