(1 customer review)



An affair with a younger man…

Janie Holcomb is a thirty-nine-year-old mother with two grown-up children who’ve just left the homestead to find their new lives at university.

John’s been her loving and loyal husband since high school when he put his hands to work to provide for his beloved but unexpected family.

Together they raised two smart and capable kids, ran a homestead, and built up a valuable snow plow business.

Young strangers in their home is nothing new; they’ve hosted teenagers from all over the world—offering room and board in trade for farm chores. It helped their own kids learn firsthand about foreign cultures and they forged friendships around the globe.

When their son finds a Home Exchange program through his university, John and Jane are all for it. Evan’s going to spend six weeks in Italy—he’ll be swapping bedrooms and families with an art student from Rome.

It’s nothing new for the Holcombs—except this isn’t a kid staying with them this time, it’s a twenty-year-old man.

Maceo DeSanctis is an artist. He’s tall, striking, talented. He has smoldering dark eyes. Their daughter and her college friends notice. Janie notices, too, but Maceo is half her age.

John drives plow, and when the winter storms come he’s away from the homestead sometimes as long as forty hours. Janie’s all alone with Maceo, and the young man is charming and thoughtful.

Janie dropped out of high school to give birth. There were things she missed, a promised part of her life taken away so she could raise her children. She wouldn’t have it any other way. But spending time with Maceo pulls the blinds from that part of her that was missing. She’s an artist, too, and there’s so much she can learn, and this amazing young man wants to teach her…

This is the second book in a series.

After things went too far between her and Maceo, Janie promises herself it will never happen again. Damage was done, but it was survivable. No need for her to destroy everything. Besides, Maceo’s had a huge and positive impact on her in just a short time. Her artwork has never felt more alive and the passion he’s roused in her has renewed something in her relationship with her husband. But jealousy begins to worm its way into the homestead; not just her husband, her too, and hers has a more sinister edge…

    We modified the proverb, but once you read this latest installment in KT Morrison’s series “Six Weeks in Winter” you’ll know exactly what we mean. By the end of this book, you’ll know that Janie Holcomb is on a mission. Just what that mission happens to be is a mystery.

    Janie Holcomb, the female lead in this series, is a jealous woman. Maybe with cause, maybe without cause, but the cause of her jealousy may be founded or unfounded. Only time will tell, but by the end of this book you will see an elaborate, potentially very dark tapestry being crafted by KT and Janie’s newly found jealous side is thread from which this tapestry may continue.

    On the one hand, we have John Holcomb, trusting, but clearly excited husband of Janie who becomes so enamoured with Maceo’s (the 20 year-old Italian exchange student living with the Holcombs) drawing of his wife, that he literally and unknowingly throws gasoline on a smoldering fire. And what a fire it is. It burns hot within Janie. Janie becomes nearly consumed with its heat. It is a fire with limits, until…

    …Until the Holcomb’s daughter Marissa gets closer to Maceo. Maceo is a player, plain and simple. He is playing mother against daughter and Janie is catching on. Suddenly, though Janie makes a decision based on some text messages and pure jealousy that strains Doctor/Patient confidentiality and friendship. Then boom! Cliff hanger.

    KT is a master at misdirection and we’re happy to report that she had both my wife and I nearly completely fooled in the buildup to what we thought would be inevitable. KT is brilliant and this book shows that brilliance in nearly every word written. It is not your classic “house guest” story. It has nearly everything a great book needs.

    The only question we have is this: How can KT top this?
