REVIEW. First published March 1, 2010 (Booklist).
George Bellamys brain tumor keeps recurring, so he discontinues treatment, and travels with nurse Claire Turner to upstate New York in an attempt to mend fences with his long-estranged brother Charles. Spending the summer at Camp Kioga also allows him to matchmake for his beloved grandson Ross, newly returned from a two-year Afghanistan tour of duty as an Army air medic, while he himself reconnects with Millie Darrow, an acquaintance from his youth. But Claires secrets threaten the entire Bellamy clan when a vicious killer tracks her down. Wiggs seventh installment in her popular contemporary romance series continues to introduce new themes and characters, skillfully incorporating such disparate elements as the long-term effects of polio, end-of-life decisions, and the personal costs associated with choosing to do the right thing into an emotionally gripping tale centered on family. Wiggs is back in top form, and Daisy Bellamys many fans will rejoice that her story is next.
