The Widow's Watcher Reviews

  • Jessica

    Thanks to Lake Union and TLC Book Tours for the free copy in exchange for my honest review!

    A thriller set in Minnesota? I'm in! THE WIDOW'S WATCHER by Eliza Maxwell takes place in my home state (and current state) of Minnesota and I think she did a fantastic job transporting the readers there - a mystery set in the dead of winter is one that sets the tone for the novel.

    We come across an unlikely friendship pairing, Jenna and Lars. Lars is a reclusive man that keeps himself isolated after a horri

    Thank you to the author for providing me with a free copy of the book.

    Wow! I was not expecting this book to be anywhere near as emotionally intense as it was! Obviously, if you read the synopsis, you can tell it’s going to be a touching story, but talk about a gut punch to the feels coming out of left field. When the story started, it felt like it was heading in a certain direction and I was anticipating a certain storyline. And then all of a sudden things had done a complete 180 and it was a w

    I LOVED this book!! It was beautifully written and had me hooked from the moment I started.

    At first I thought Jenna was taking a trip with her teenager. Then my heart sank when I realized the truth and that the conversations were actually one sided. I'll admit I cried during this book. There were so many heartbreaking moments. Jenna found Lars when she needed someone the most. Both were struggling with losing loved ones. For nearly thirty years, Lars has not been able to find his two younger ch

    This is the third book I’ve read by author Eliza Maxwell, and there is a reason I keep coming back. Yes, her book covers are gorgeous and enticing and make you want to crawl inside and find out the story behind the image. But those covers are only one appetizer before a multi-course meal. The cover of The Widow’s Watcher whets the appetite, and then Maxwell, like all good chefs, sets the stage by feeding the reader morsels of information that hint at the delicious feast to come. (Note to self: h

    "Is there anything so empty as something that's once been full?"


    Oh, the GUILT in this book. Guilt is such a driving force of human nature, and the richly drawn characters in The Widow’s Watcher are immersed in it. They feel guilt about what they’ve done in equal parts with what they haven’t done…or are going to do…or have thought about doing – or maybe didn’t really do at all. The pain of their guilt radiates from the characters and is exacerbated by the secrets they keep. Eliza Maxwell knows how to write secrets.

    "Forgiveness is hard. It's painful. It's giving when you've got nothing left to give, from places you can't afford to give anything else."


    In what I would say is Eliza Maxwell’s trademark style, she creates complex characters who are ruled by the guilt they carry and the secrets they keep and who are their own worst enemies. Maxwell builds extraordinary, yet realistic relationships between the characters that allow readers to relate to them. These connections, both between characters but also between the reader and the characters, are powerful and make us feel invested in the characters’ lives.

    "Hope was a frightening thing to rekindle. As impossible to control as a wildfire on a dry plain."


    The Widow’s Watcher is powerful and poignant. Prepare to feel emotionally drained after you finish reading because this book puts readers through the wringer. It is at times profoundly sad, but there is a constant hopeful thread that weaves its way in and out of the sadness as the characters search for redemption and forgiveness they don’t know they are seeking.

    The writing is lovely and flows well with short chapters that allow for a quick read. There are some scattered SPAG errors, but none were enough to impact my enjoyment. As I did with The Grave Tender and The Unremembered Girl, I highly recommend reading The Widow’s Watcher for a smorgasbord of feelings that will leave you satisfyingly full but not in need of an antacid.

    Extra credit awarded: Yes, there is a library in the story and though I was initially bummed by the librarian’s attitude and *GASP* withholding of information, in keeping with the rest of the story, there is redemption. Double points awarded for one of my favorite sayings, "You can't judge a book by its cover...but you can judge a person by their books."

    For Jenna Shaw, life has become unbearable. She has lost everything, a husband who adored her and her three children in a terrible plane crash. As Jenna walks out onto the ice of a river, knowing that she will end it all, on old man, Lars Jorgensen sees her from his cabin. He knows what she intends to do, he has seen and experienced tragedy, he knows the face of it. Lars pulls her from the edge of her decision and an unlikely f

    I received a copy of this book for free in exchange for an honest and thoughtful review.

    From the story's gripping first chapter to its full circle conclusion, I was completely transfixed by the frozen Minnesota setting and the crushing grief that bonds together two seemingly unlikely yet broken individuals. It is through this unusual friendship that Jenna and Lars begin to heal. I was so captivated by their relationship that it was hard to say goodbye by the end. Each character within this cast

    3.5 stars

    I read this story in one setting and found it absorbing. I liked the characters, the plot, the writing style. I thought Jenna’s tragedy was handled more deeply and heartbreakingly in the first part of the book; although theoretically her grief felt devastating, my connection with her character was feeble (which is strange, because I wanted to know her family; the author made them all so real).

    First I have to say thank you to NetGalley and Lake Union Publishers for this book in exchange for my honest opinion.

    This book starts out with much sadness and continues all the way. It’s a book so worth reading and shedding tears for. It had me from the start and I could not put it down. I read all day yesterday and today only stopping to cook and take a shower. Well sleep too but that is beside the point.

    Two lost souls brought together due to so much loss and sadness. Two that would never hav
