In her suspense novel WHEN THE WIND BLOWS, Marilyn Gardiner grabs you with a mother's worst nightmare and doesn't let up the suspense and tension until the exciting—and satisfying—conclusion. Yet, she manages to weave in a romance amid the emotional roller coaster ride. Be prepared to stay up all night with this one!

The romance is subtle and the focus is on Molly's internal struggle to unravel what is and what only seems to be, all the while trying not to fall in love with her fellow sleuth. The scenes are vivid and visual, and this reader found herself racing toward the end along with the heroine. That search being done, the next one will be for Marilyn Gardiner's next book. WHEN THE WIND BLOWS is a fabulous work! A must read for all romantic suspense fans. Highly recommended.

I have a loving and supportive husband and two grown daughters, who have given me a total of eight perfect, handsome and intelligent grandchildren. (So says this prejudiced grandmother.) Since my first memory, music and books have been my passion. When I took the SATs, I was the only in my entire 11th grade class who knew the author of Anne Of Green Gables. Music continues to feed my soul. I have sung in choral groups all across the eastern half of the U.S., done solo and ensemble work and am currently a member of a large chorale. Today I have books in every room in my house, and never go out the front door without reading material under my arm. With equal passion, I avoid cooking and cleaning house.
