“A Perfect Gem was beautifully written with an intriguing storyline of romance and suspense. The characters were true to life and easily likable, while the plot’s unique twists kept you interested until the very end. Winslow is a talented writer and story weaver, gradually drawing you in and leaving you wondering where the time has flown when you only intended to read a chapter or two. Travel with Winslow Eliot and enjoy your trip to the Berkshires.” Peggy Edelheit, author of the Samantha Jamison novels.
“Bad things happen to other people. Not to us.” This is Crista’s husband’s mantra – something he says often, right up to the day his car goes off the cliff, killing him. Crista doesn’t think her life can get any worse.
But it can. She finds out he was married to someone else. Leaving her not only heartbroken, but destitute. She’s fired from her job and evicted from her apartment. She and her two children make the hard move to Tahton, a small New England town she fled twenty-five years earlier, vowing never, ever to return. There she encounters the man she thought she would never see again: her childhood love, Gareth. Old feelings begin to resurface. But just as Crista believes she is finally recovering from the shock of her dead husband’s betrayal, his ‘real’ wife contacts her… looking for something very valuable…. that Crista doesn’t even know she has.
