Cape May, N.J. 1976
When NYC editor Audrey Taylor finalizes her divorce, it seems as if her entire world has collapsed around her. And when she inherits a run-down Victorian mansion in a decaying N.J. beach town, it only seems to get worse. At least, until she finds the treasure map.
The Widow’s Walk is a tale of growth, self-discovery, and learning to appreciate all the good that life has to offer. A romance wrapped in a historical subplot, a mystery hidden in a centuries-old crime, it ties two unsuspecting people together to find a love that neither expected—which is far more precious than buried treasure could ever be.

The Widows Walk follows Audrey Taylor, an editor who moves to a small beach town following a divorce. She is trying to get a fresh start as well as take some time off and this old Victorian mansion that she inherits from her aunt seems to be the best place to do this. The story follows Audrey as she finds herself, discovers a mystery, a treasure map and even happens upon new beginnings in the form of new relationships.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this story which was a good blend of romance and mystery put together. The story flows at a steady pace with well thought out characters. I really enjoyed reading about the concept of a widow’s walk and how it fit into the plot. The history of the place that Audrey comes to live in and the story of the past were wonderful to discover along with her as she divided her time between the mystery and her work as an editor. This is a story of self discovery too as well as second chances and this is something I quite enjoy reading about. The author has done a wonderful job with the description of the places and provided special focus on the relationships between each of the characters along with glimpses into who they are.
I am participating in the Book Review and promotion tour hosted by Zoé via Zooloo’s Book Tours and am truly grateful to her and the author for the opportunity to read and review this book. I recommend this to all readers who enjoy a nice cozy mystery which has just the right amount of mystery mixed in with some romance.
