Book Review: "Return to Willow Lake" by Susan Wiggs
Sonnet Romano's life is almost perfect. She has the ideal career, the ideal boyfriend, and has just been offered a prestigious fellowship. There's nothing more a woman wants -- except maybe a baby…brother? — When Sonnet finds out her mother is unexpectedly expecting, and that the pregnancy is high risk, she puts everything on hold ... more »-- the job, the fellowship, the boyfriend -- and heads home to Avalon. Once her mom is out of danger, Sonnet intends to pick up her life where she left off.
But when her mother receives a devastating diagnosis, Sonnet must decide what really matters in life, even if that means staying in Avalon and taking a job that forces her to work alongside her biggest, and maybe her sweetest, mistake -- award-winning filmmaker Zach Alger. So Sonnet embarks on a summer of laughter and tears, of old dreams and new possibilities, and of finding the home of her heart.
This is another series I enjoy reading. It reminds me a lot of Debbie Macomber's "Cedar Cove" series, but this author does more of focusing on the characters she is featuring and less 'updates' on past feature characters. The author makes it work though.
When reading the previous book, "Marrying Daisy Bellamy" I was left with unanswered questions. Unfortunately these questions were still left unanswered. This has left me wondering.... was it just me that had these unanswered questions?
Besides that, I did enjoy 'returning to Willow Lake' - it has been awhile. =) I liked coming back to the characters and Willow Lake and Camp Kioga. The feelings with Sonnet and Zach had/have for each other back and forth was fun to read.
I can't wait for the next installment to this series. Maybe my questions will be answered. =)
