Widow Veronica has not been intimate with
anyone since her husband died years ago. Feeling loneliness
down to her bones, Veronica decides to join her friends as a
competitor in the local bowling tournament. Entering the
partners contest, Veronica is anxious but hopeful that her
partner be an attractive enough man that she could while away
a few hours in bed with. Easier said than done. Veronica’s
tournament partner is a woman and she is attracted to her.
Afraid and a bit dismayed, Veronica doesn’t know what to do.
She only knows that it is time to live again and decides to
shed the old Veronica and begin anew.
When I first asked to review Widow
Weeds, I was uninformed of its genre. Happily, I
opened the book and began to read. Realizing what this book
was about, I closed it. Unable to stand the suspense, I
opened it again and continued to read even though every button
I have in my reviewer body was being pushed. I can read man
love all day every day; woman love? Not so much. However,
because Widow Weeds was written by Beth
Williamson, I continued and I am glad that I did. So much so
that I forgot about the genre, I forgot about the girl love
and I concentrated on the story. What a wonderful tale this
turned out to be.
As usual, Beth Williamson delivered a
powerful, emotional story. Her ability to bring to life
characters and storylines that a reader might not usually read
often leaves me speechless. A novel like Widow Weeds
is one of the many reasons she is an auto-buy for me.
