Overview

After his guardian's severe illness, pastor Paul Trevelyan returns to his congregation in Seaside with a big surprise - a wife he's been estranged from for seven years. It was the old man's ailing wish that Dori and Trev return to each other, and they agree, as long as they can sleep in separate bedrooms. The dangers of a sinister luggage mix-up are compounded by discord within the church, as a highly opinionated elder proves he will stop at nothing to see Trev gone. This blizzard of difficulties leaves just a snowball's chance of a thaw between the stubborn spouses...

Bitter winds...

After a tragedy-riddled early life, Dori MacAllister has made a quiet place for herself on the West Coast, far from the landscape of her earlier heartbreaks. When she receives word that the man who raised her is gravely ill, she is drawn back to a place full of love and longing—and betrayal.

Winds of love...

Pastor Paul Trevelyan hasn't seen the woman he loves in six years. When he's given a second chance with her, he longs to make it work this time. The trouble is, if he doesn't win her back, it could cost him his job—and his happiness.

Winds of danger...

The charming town of Seaside now has its very own crime boss, and Officer Maureen Galloway would love to be the one to make charges stick. her investigation leads to Dori MacAllister, but is Dori an accomplice or a victim? And why is pharmacist Phil Trevelyan so bent on getting in Maureen's way?

In Winter Winds, Gayle Roper concludes her delightful Seaside Seasons series with a tale of romance, crime, startling mix-ups, and a few hard hears that just might get a much-needed midwinter thaw.

Story Behind the Book

Over the years, both Gayle and her husband have been involved in the church. Chuck has been an elder for many years, Gayle has led the women's ministry, and they've both taught. They have experienced and observed the fights within a congregation. They've also witnessed believers coming alongside someone in need time after time after time. Gayle wanted to write about a church full of real people—some good, some selfish and troublemakers. She also wanted the fun of writing a marriage of convenience that turns into a love match. This story provided that opportunity.

    Winter Winds in Summer

    Wow! What a book! I could not put it down. When I finished it I just wanted to say 'Hallelujah'! I was so engrossed in the freezing snowstorm in the second-to-last chapter that I had to remind myself I was reading the book on a warm summer day. The entire book just came alive around me. I felt the characters were friends of mine and I was living through this experience in their lives. This is the fourth book in this series, and I've enjoyed all four. They treat contemporary issues in a light, easy to read text. In this one, the characters respond to major disappointments when their will doesn't align with God's will. The book is a combination love story and mystery. It's a 'must read' for young couples! Thank you, Ms. Roper, for this fourth book in the Seaside Seasons series.
