Wiggs is at the top of her game here, combining a charming setting with subtly shaded characters and more than a touch of humor. This is the kind of book a reader doesn’t want to see end but can’t help devouring as quickly as possible.


Summary: Attorney Sophie Bellamy has made a difference while climbing to the top of her profession — but she’s also sacrificed her marriage and her relationships with her children, Max and Daisy.A brush with death makes Sophie determined to change what she can — which means moving to Avalon, making an effort to get along with her ex-husband and his new wife and mending fences with Max and Daisy. Avalon does have its compensations, including an attractive veterinarian, Noah Shepherd. Sophie’s not looking for romance, but that’s just what she finds — and much, much more. (MIRA, Feb., 432 pp., $7.99)

  • I am past ready for this one! Ever since you let us read it in class I have been trying to be patient ….I feel like a kid who got one lick of ice cream many months ago ….and the promise of a gallon of chocolate chip cookie dough coming on Jamuary 29th!

    Are we there yet? Huh? Are we there yet????

    Pleeeaassse!

  • My fav book haunt, Barnes & Noble in Greenfield, WI is finally recoginzing you! They have the Lakeshore Chronicles books turned, facing out to the reader!!!

    You are also sharing the shelf with none other than, Kathleen Woodiwiss.

    All I can say is “Thank you” for producing these books 🙂

  • Oooooh, I can’t wait. I was hoping for Sophie’s story so we can see things from her perspective. I liked the little glimpse of her with her friends in the anthology.

    It’ll be nice to read a book like this to warm the spirit because the weather just turned bitter cold out here (and I know it’s still warmer here than a ton of other points in the country!)
