Book Review: EMMERSON by Nancy George

Title: Emmerson
Series: The Widows of Birch Harbor Book 3
Author: Nancy George
Genre: Romance Suspense Novella
Release Date: October 2, 2019

Emmerson has spent her whole married life devoted to her husband, Denver. They own a small family pawn shop. But everything changes when Denver becomes involved with new business partners. Every instinct in Emmerson warns her something is wrong.

With danger so close, will it take Emmerson to the brink of insanity?
Two things unite the widows of Birch Harbor…
husbands and death.
Six women from different locations all living diverse lives. Married for better or worse, these women will have one thing in common. One by one they will wake up to face a brand-new day filled with hope and promises only to hear a single word which separates them from other women. Widow.
Some will relish in the prospect that their lives can finally begin. Others will try to pick up the pieces of their shattered lives and face the future alone.
Fate has not yet finished with them.
Each one will find herself looking out over the deep, velvety-blue waters of the ocean, just outside the sanctuary of Birch Harbor, and wonder what life is all about.


In my mind I’ve named Nancy George’s Widows of Birch Harbor series “quickie romances”; they take 20-30 minutes to read, they contain the fundamentals of a romance book and they come with satisfying happy-ever-after endings.

Well, this tale certainly held some unexpected twist and turns! Not only does Emmerson Patrick's husband die in suspicious circumstances but the next man to catch her eye has her involved in an incident that both shocks and scares her so much that she flees to a small town to hide out - in this case, Birch Harbor. Even in Birch Harbor, life is not as quiet as Emmerson had hoped, and a final revelation means Emmerson needs to make choices about the direction her life will take.

My advice is just to jump in and start reading. Writing any more will likely result in spoilers, and that would ruin your reading experience.
