"Winter's Secret is a captivating story, blanketed in biblical truths...." CBA Markeplace

Smashed heirlooms, ripped upholstery and rifled drawers--who is breaking into homes--stealing and vandalizing? And targeting the most vulnerable--the seniors of the small town? As the new sheriff, Rodd Durand, home again to small town Steadfast, Wisconsin, takes on the Snowmobile Burglar. In the course of her duties, Wendy Carey, the home health nurse, discovers each new break-in. The small town reels as the burglar eludes capture and steps up his crimes. A vindictive woman and a secret baby heighten the suspense. When Wendy and Rodd begin to fall in love, family complicates matters. But the real stumbling block to their love lies within. Can they break through their own insecurities over the past?

Note to readers:This series (Winter's Secret, Autumn's Shadow, Summer's End) came out a decade ago from Tyndale House Publishers in trade paperback and large print. This is the revised and updated edition. In the intervening years since this series first debuted, I wrote another thirty books. When I looked over the pages of the original books, I realized that I like how I write now better.

PLUS technology (ie cell phones, etc) has changed so much that these books needed sprucing up. Besides when an author writes a story, it feels like her child. And I want my "children" to look their best as I send them out into the reading world once more. So I hope you'll enjoy these books in their second improved edition.

A fun read! March 5, 2012
"I love Lyn Cote's writing, so I was excited when I saw her new book Winter's Secret. She didn't let me down, in fact, I had a hard time putting it down! ... Seriously, if you're looking for a hard core mystery or a romp, that's not Lyn's style. But if you're looking for a book that has great characters, a sweet romance, a mystery that will keep you guessing, this is for you, I know you'll enjoy it!!"

Editorial Reviews

within original edition - Hannah Alexander
"Lyn Cote has the ability to write about a snowstorm
with such delicious description that I can get shivers in the middle of August.
In Winter's Secret, she portrays a small Wisconsin town filled
with characters of depth and substance,
while leading us deeper into their collective past."

    Interesting read

    Enjoyed this...a little slow in some spots, and some of the characters you would have thought would be important didn't really develop, but otherwise a good story.

    Liked the suspense, the clean romance, and the faith factor. Would recommend. Review by CherishD

    A great read! A good series to read

    I liked all three books in the series. There some minor problems, some breaks in context but cause only a slight pause.
