A steamy novel that immerses the reader in an intricate storyline that will keep them glued till the very last page.

          Willow Point (Harbour Falls Mystery, #2) 
With the Harbour Falls Mystery solved, author Maddy Fitch hopes secrets and lies are behind her. But a cryptic letter from her former best friend would seem to indicate otherwise. Is the man Maddy fell in love with while solving the Harbour Falls Mystery, the gorgeous and rich Adam Ward, keeping a damning and potentially dangerous secret from her? Only the writer of the letter, Ami Hensley, knows for sure. But Maddy is hesitant to confront her, since the last time they saw one another Ami tried to kill her.

But if Maddy wants answers--ones that could potentially save Adam--then she must face her fears and visit her former friend. Unfortunately for Maddy, Ami is
currently locked up in the creepiest place in Maine, an old gothic structure that houses the criminally insane, known simply as Willow Point.

Will this new mystery tear Maddy and Adam apart?

Who else is in on Adam's secret?

And will Maddy find the answers before it's too late?

Another heart-stopping page turner from the author of Harbour Falls. Willow Point promises to keep you on the edge of your seat.

 Wickingham Way (Harbour Falls Mystery, #3)
When Maddy Fitch discovers there's a hit out on the love of her life--the handsome, but often secretive Adam Ward--she concludes life with such a powerful man may never be normal.

But who wants normal? Not Maddy--mystery writer and sometimes-sleuth.

The heart-stopping action begins immediately in Wickingham Way when an attempt is made on Adam's life, prompting the couple to seek refuge at a "safe house."

Tucked away in a cabin deep in the heart of Maine, Maddy and Adam fall deeper in love. But their happiness is cut short when someone they care deeply for is kidnapped, by the same organization that wants Adam Ward dead.

Adam and Maddy return to Harbour Falls, and a dangerous cat-and-mouse game ensues. Twists and turns abound, keeping Maddy and Adam on their toes. But will the consequences of the decisions they must make prove deadly?

Only time will tell.

NOTE: This review has aTotal Series Recap

'The Harbour Falls Mystery was the real reason I was here. I had every intention of basing my next novel on the facts of the case. I was tired of fiction; I wanted to write a true crime novel. Plus there was a little part of me— the detective that lurks in all of us— that dreamed of solving this case.'

Maddy Fitch is a Best selling mystery author living in L.A. which is a long way from her hometown of Harbour Falls, Maine. Until now all of her stories have been literary fiction... Maddy recently decided to go home in order to research the mystery surrounding the disappearance of Chelsea Hannigan. A wealthy social lite in Maine. 


The facts surrounding the case are not well known. What Maddy does know is that four years ago at the time of her disappearance Chelsea was engaged to marry the mega rich and extremely sexy Adam Ward. Adam became suspect numero uno in her disappearance. Eventually the case trail went cold... Maddy plans to rectify that, hoping her research will in turn solve the case as well.

Maddy is greeted by the unwelcome home party fairly quick.. Prompting her suspicions and fueling her need to solve the case.
All it takes is one look. Yes, one look at Ward has Maddy wanting him more than ever in every way that counts, up close and personal. It doesn't take long for Maddy to realize that there is more to Adam than what meets the eye.. In fact it takes her less than 24hrs to draw that conclusion...

'Much like the Harbour Falls Mystery itself, the man at the center was a puzzle. And I longed to solve him, piece by piece.'

Slowly more pieces of the dark case come to light, causing Adam to look guilty.

“Wouldn’t it be poetic if you found out you were sleeping with the enemy, so to speak, in this little scenario?” ~Jennifer

She's in too deep...

Some say the truth shall set you free, in this case the truth may just get you killed... Soon Maddy's life is in peril when she digs too close to the truth.
Did Adam kill her or not?

Where book 1 in The Harbour Falls series was more of a guessing game of

 Book 2 Willow Point was more so on the level of

 Clues that lead Maddy straight to a secret from Adam’s past. Of course our always curious Maddy prefers to be on a must know basis. But didn’t anyone ever tell her that curiosity killed the cat. As the clues lead her to uncover a lie she soon realizes she may lose Adam after all.


Willow Point picks right up where book 1 left off. Maddy was given info from Amy that suggests Adam gave her false information. And he did. Now her alarm bells are ringing... Adam lied, she discovers a carefully hidden truth and it leads her back to the main land and away from Adam. Back on the main land she meets an eye catching new neighbor!  Stowe.

‘Why must my neighbor be so hot?’ ~Maddy

Of course there may be more to him than meets the eye.


 Adam Ward is a very powerful man and when people feel threatened by the powerful some people may are willing to go to extremes to be rid of that threat.

‘Maddy Fitch, bestselling author by trade but persistent investigator in my own time’

 In Wickingham Way Maddy discovers that a hit has been put out on her man.  She shares her news with him only to find out that he already knew.  When an actual attempt is made on Adam’s life the couple is forced in to seclusion for their own safety. Now at a safe house Maddy and Adam grow even closer with nothing but spare time on their hands.
A sudden turn of events has the couple heading back home. Neither knowing what to expect because the only thing that seems clear to them is that if anything they have one another’s back. 

My Thoughts
S.R. Grey has a formula and it works for her very well - mystery, romance, sex and suspense. Whereas mystery dominated the previous book while romance took a back seat in Wickingham Way Grey showcased Maddy and Adam’s romance which is a plus for me.  We meet a new character and catch up with a few others. I would love if Stowe and Erin got a book ;) Just sayin! The ending was good and overall there was a great conclusion to this series!

My Ratings
Characters- Sweet, Sexy and Lovable
Writing Style- Good
Plot/Storyline- Maddy and Adam are trying to stay alive as an assassin seeks to take out Adam
Steam Factor- High/Very Steamy on a scale of 1-10 I say 8

My Recommendation: If you’re looking for a good romance with a nice blend of mystery and suspense this is for you!
