Review: Widow’s Walk by Genevieve Ash

When Lindy, an American romance writer, inherits a craggy house by the sea in Cornwall she expects to sell it and use the proceeds to fund her career. But upon arriving in England she discovers long-forgotten love letters chronicling her Great-aunt Emmaline's ill-fated romance with a sea captain.

Entranced by the story the letters tell, Lindy starts pining for her own impossible love and meets Tom, a charter-boat captain who lives nearby. Despite Tom's intense travel schedule, they start an affair fueled by heated emails and phone calls. When Tom suggests that Lindy join him on a trip to Spain, their virtual relationship soon becomes very real indeed.

A week of sensual delights and romance leads to passions that cannot be denied but past hurts have made Lindy and Tom cautious about commitment. Can history repeat itself with a much better outcome or is this romance destined to be washed out to sea?

Genevieve Ash brings us the character of Lindy: a romance writer with a decidedly bitter outlook on love.  After a failed love affair with a man who was unfaithful, she retreats to a cottage bequeathed by an aunt, on the Cornish Coast.  Told the cottage holds magic and love, it is the perfect place to lick her wounds and finish her book.

On arrival, Lindy runs in to (literally) Thomas, a sea captain and soon to prove the savior of this damsel in distress.  In one of her many hours spent putting the cottage to rights, she finds a trunk of old love letters, her aunt’s correspondence with a sea captain named Ben.  At once the correlation of their lives is apparent, and Ash weaves the two story lines into one: increasing the pathos of the story adding emotional depth and forcing Lindy to see her own mistakes as they are played out in her aunt’s story in the letters.

For his part, Thomas is sexy and sensual: he is helping Lindy to explore her more sensual side, and those scenes are steamy and frequent, with a deep romantic and sigh-inducing element that brings added depth.  A slightly comical, and often embarrassing sexual difficulty is given to Lindy, and while she is learning to come to terms with that, the reader has a moment from the more serious moments and deep emotional connections that are formed with her.   With a side-trip to Spain and a bit of female exploration, the story manages to add the erotic while keeping the emotional components and sensual feel of the story constant.  A fun read with a clever twist on an old love, consumable in an easy afternoon.

    I like the sound of this one with two parallel stories going at once through the letters and real time. Thanks for sharing!
