Winters’ Gift by Florence Keeling

Winters Gift Banner


Bea Winters is in desperate need of a fresh start. Being bullied at work is not her idea of fun and she longs to follow her dream of becoming a published author. When an advert appears in her local paper to work in a publishing house in the sleepy village of Bloomsdale, it sounds too good to be true.  

She strikes up an instant friendship with gorgeous aspiring author, Eddie Richards and her dashing millionaire boss Scott Summers 

But all isn’t as it seems in the sleepy village of Bloomsdale.

How does the local clairvoyant know her name? Who does the little black dog that keeps appearing belong to and why does she keep bumping into the mysterious Charlie?  

As she starts to unravel the truth, it seems that everyone in Bea’s life is keeping secrets.  

An uplifting romantic comedy that will warm your heart – perfect for fans of Cathy Bramley, Milly Johnson and Carole Matthews.  


Bea Winters is so ready to start a new life away from her bully of a co-worker. So when she is apprised of strange happenings that point her to a perfect job in a charming town called Bloomsdale in Yorkshire, she takes a chance and receives a job as an accountant in a small publishing company owned by the gorgeous and charming writer, Scott Summers.  However, he has a strange story with a missing wife and a volatile personality.  And then there is the cute and sweet Eddie Richards, who doesn’t have an easy relationship with Scott.  Both of the men are attracted to Bea, but she has her own things to deal with. Mainly, her mother’s secrets and a mysterious man who seems so familiar. Can she settle down in this charming town that feels like home for the first time in her life?

This heartwarming romantic story has an interesting love triangle with a bit of mystery.  I felt bad for Bea’s life with her selfish mother who seems to flit from boyfriend to boyfriend and taking advantage of her kids. It was good for Bea to start a new life in a charming town and though Eddie is a bit younger and awkward at first, and after some misunderstandings, they seem well suited for each other. Scott, on the other hand, is full of himself and loves the ladies even though he’s still married. There are two mysteries in this book. One I figured out pretty early on, the other was a shock, but plausible and very interesting.  If you like comfortable and mysterious love stories with intriguing characters, give this book a try.

Thank you to Ms. Keeling for giving me the opportunity to read this book with no expectation of a positive review.
