Sam finds a crying woman on his door step. Wanting to offer help he moves forward only to be halted in place by a strand of hair. He life takes a turn and this winter things will change for him forever.
I would like to say this was a beautiful romance, but that would be selling this story short. I found this a beautiful story about love, loss, life and choices. Jennifer DeCuir has made this a beautiful read that has me wanting to find the other books of this series.
Narrator review . . . of WYNTER’S JOURNEY (Scallop Shores, #3) . . . I found that Gabrielle did a wonderful job narrating this beautiful journey of life for both Wynter and Sam. She made the inflection perfectly. She gave a unique tone and intonation to the different characters. I had no problem distinguishing between the different characters. The ebb and flow of the narration made the read just go by with little effort. I began the read and then it was over. The quality of the audio stood up to increase in narration speed and volume. I found not glitches in the audio, which made me very happy. The background sounds were non-existence for me. I found the ease of the laughter, the sorry, the relief was alluring. Gabrielle brought to life a book that made me stand up and take notice of a new author to my readingdom.

Tragedy tore Wynter and Sam apart before he could tell her how he felt about her. Twelve years later, fate dropped her off on his doorstep, widowed, desperately broke, and very pregnant. Sam has spent his entire adult life trying to forget Wynter, and here she was, ready to collect on a promise he’d made when he was young and in love. His sense of honor dictated that he take her in when she needed him most. It was only temporary, after all. But living under the same roof quickly led to old feelings resurfacing. Now the one person he’d wanted to leave behind is the one person he can’t let go.
She knew seeing her reminded Sam of everything he’d lost, but Wynter had no choice. If she were going to make it back to Scallop Shores to raise her baby, she needed his help. Only she hadn’t counted on the long winter nights, getting reacquainted with a childhood friend she’d loved like a brother, a friend who’d grown into a man she found herself wanting to get to know on a whole different level.
Delivering Wynter’s baby at home during a fierce snow storm forces Sam to fill in as temporary dad. It’s a role he’d gladly make permanent. Too bad the one place Wynter is determined to raise her daughter is the one place Sam swore he’d never step foot in again. Had he gotten a second chance to tell her he loved her only to lose her again? Or is this time for keeps?
Jennifer DeCuir is the author of the Scallop Shores series, set on the coast of Maine, where she grew up. Now living on the opposite side of the country, she’s busy raising two kids and a husband. Her life resembles a sitcom, but that means endless story ideas. Coffee and chocolate keep her productive. Wine keeps her sane.
