Ah, what a nice review. Thanks, LJ.Wiggs, Susan. Return to Willow Lake. Mira: Harlequin. (Lakeshore Chronicles, Bk. 9). Sept. 2012. c.320p. ISBN 9780778313847. $24.95. CONTEMPORARY UNESCO director Sonnet Romano leads a charmed life: she has just been offered a sought-after fellowship, a handsome man is in love with her, and she is swept up in her biological father’s run for Congress. Then she finds out that her mother is pregnant and there are serious complications, so Sonnet leaves New York and heads to Avalon and Willow Lake. Over-the-top reality show characters add interest, while beautifully integrated flashbacks help put everything into perspective. This engaging series is beginning to acquire classic saga-like dimensions. VERDICT An ambitious heroine who finally discovers what is important in life and a hero who’s rising to the top but who has always known where his loyalties lay are front and center in this issue-centered, touching reunion tale. Wiggs (Marrying Daisy Bellamy) lives on Bainbridge Island, WA.
