“This tale of romance and family love is in the popular style of Lisa Wingate and Debbie Macomber and will attract new readers while delighting best-selling, RITA-winning Wiggs’ many loyal fans.”

The ninth volume in Wiggs’ popular Willow Lake series brings together several story lines in surprising and emotional ways to create a satisfying read. The story begins with Daisy’s wedding and a brief intense connection between Sonnet and Zach. Sonnet returns to New York only to turn down a prestigious fellowship when her mother, Nina, becomes pregnant, then gets a serious medical diagnosis. Sonnet begins working on a reality-show production in town, and Zach is a lead filmmaker on the project. Minor characters shine, as always with Wiggs, including an insightful hip-hop star and kids from the reality show. Nina’s story seems bleak at times, and Sonnet tries to help her while also trying to please her difficult father in a realistically portrayed struggle. Zach’s role as white knight for both Sonnet and her mother is touching and funny. This tale of romance and family love is in the popular style of Lisa Wingate and Debbie Macomber and will attract new readers while delighting best-selling, RITA-winning Wiggs’ many loyal fans. — Amy Alessio
