A village on the coast of Maine holds painful secrets—
the kind only the miracle of new love can heal.

Snow Fence Road is a tender love story of two people, Tess Johansen and Evan Marston. Both have suffer the loss of a loved one, and together learn to break free of the guilt they kept buried deep within themselves. 

A few months after the death of her fiance, Andy, Tess moves to Knowle where she purchases the Spinnaker Inn. She runs it with the help of Claire, the original owner of the Inn. To keep her from thinking of Andy, Tess keeps herself busy cooking and doing small repairs at the Inn. He was only 29 when he died, and she always believed he would beat his cancer. Andy’s death was a terrible blow to Tess.

The death of Evan’s fiance, Celia is shrouded with mystery. Both he and Celia had fallen from a cliff. While Evan survived the fall, Celia did not. Rumors about the accident flew around the small town of Knowle, but Evan was never charged with any crime. He became a bit of a recluse after the accident. Only going out to work, he keeps to  himself most of the time. Pain from his shattered leg and bad dreams are constant reminders of Celia’s death. 

Evan and Tess become friends and slowly begin to fall in love, something they never expected to happen to them again. When they finally give into their feelings and allow themselves to love again, ugly secrets come out and threaten to tear them apart. The mystery of what happened to Celia and why comes pouring out. Poor Tess is unknowingly put right in the middle of a touchy situation, leaving Evan upset and feeling betrayed. 

I enjoyed reading Snow Fence Road. I found it a reflective and poignant read. A more mature read, as apposed to the edgy new adult books I've been reading.
