Return to Willow Lake

Susan Wiggs. Harlequin Mira, $24.95 (320p) ISBN 978-0778313847
Wiggs returns to the lake in her new novel following Fireside. Sonnet Romano is missing one thing from her to-do-before-30 checklist: falling in love. At her stepsister's wedding, Sonnet is unexpectedly overcome by the allure of her long-time best friend, Zach Alger and succumbs to one night of passion with him. But Zach doesn't fit in with Sonnet's life plans so she never called him after that "glorious, sweet, impossible mistake." But when her mother unexpectedly becomes pregnant, and Sonnet learns that there are complications, she rushes from New York City to her mother's side in Willow Lake which puts her in direct line with Zach who has already decided that all he wants is Sonnet. Her mother's condition makes Sonnet re-evaluate her priorities: doing what is expected from her demanding father or doing what her heart wants. Sonnet's continued blindness regarding her father's controlling nature is at times frustrating, yet completely understandable. More problematic is that, while it's a comfortable read, the book lacks the chemistry and passion of Wiggs's previous works. (Aug)
