Return to Willow Lake

Sonnet Romano's life is almost perfect. She has the ideal career, the ideal boyfriend, and has just been offered a prestigious fellowship. There's nothing more a woman wants—except maybe a baby…brother? When Sonnet finds out her mother is unexpectedly expecting, and that the pregnancy is high risk, she puts everything on hold—the job, the fellowship, the boyfriend—and heads home to Avalon. Once her mom is out of danger, Sonnet intends to pick up her life where she left off. But when her mother receives a devastating diagnosis, Sonnet must decide what really matters in life, even if that means staying in Avalon and taking a job that forces her to work alongside her biggest, and maybe her sweetest, mistake—award-winning filmmaker Zach Alger. So Sonnet embarks on a summer of laughter and tears, of old dreams and new possibilities, and of finding the home of her heart.
Susan Wiggs is one of those authors that I know I will enjoy her novels, regardless of it being a historical or a contemporary setting.  You can say she is one of my feel good authors.  Reading her books will always put a smile on my face.

And this one did not disappoint. It had the ups and downs of real relationships, and I loved the way that Sonnet, Nina, and Zach handled their ups and downs.  I found Nina's story to be poignant and beautiful, and it had me in tears several times.  Sonnet and Zach's love has been one of stories I've been waiting for a while, loved them as teens in previous books and I was very curious on how the author would get them together.  Loved it!
