Snowfall at Willow Lake– book review

I just got back from a 2 mile walk in the neighborhood. I needed to go put something in the mailbox, we have central mailboxes not ones at each house, so I decided to take a real walk. I love the fact that I can get a good walk in right in my neighborhood and I don’t even have to walk the same route each time or walk in circles to get a decent distance in.

I could take this walk because spring has finally arrived. It is so nice to have the windows open. We have turned off the heat and don’t need to turn on the A/C yet so that will save on the gas and electric bill… that is always a good thing!

Yesterday while the boys were playing on the PS4 and Richard was building his workbench, which is almost finished, I decided to get my book from upstairs and finish it off. I have been reading Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban downstairs. I have been enjoying this trip back to Hogwarts that I decided to take. I also like having a book downstairs that I can read. I need something that I can put down at any time. I need something that will hold my attention, but not enrapture me so much that I loose track of time. AND most important, I need a book that has the qualities that I try to pick out in the books the boys read. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve caught them reading over my shoulder… some adult books are still very much not appropriate for them, and I don’t read smut books.

Anyway,…. I finished reading Snowfall at Willow Lake, by Susan Wiggs. This book is part of a series, but I’ve never read any of the other books in the series, at least I don’t think I have. My mom brought this book to me on her last trip up to PA.

Sophie Bellamy would appear to have everything someone could want in life. She worked in Hague as an international attorney. She dedicated her life to helping others. But, when life took a turn and she found herself in a hostage situation, she realized that the life she was leading was missing one big piece, her children.

Sophie decided then and there to move back to the United States, into the town where her children lived with her ex-husband and his new wife, and her whole family. This transition won’t be easy, and not even close to smooth, but she needs to put her life into a new perspective.

Life decides to throw her one more curve ball when she crashes her car the night she arrives in Avalon. Noah Shepherd, the local veterinarian came to her rescue that night. Read to find out if Sophie can mend her relationship with her son Max and daughter Daisy. How will she adjust to being a grandmother to her grandson Charlie? Can she live in a small town filled with her ex-husband’s family and new wife’s family? What will come about in meeting Noah Shepherd?

I just started reading my next book last night and I’m already enjoying it. Maybe I should take it outside and read it in the sunshine? What are you reading? Where is your favorite place to read? Do you read one book at a time or multiple?

  1. This book sounds good! Definitely read your current book in the sunshine. It’s absolutely gorgeous today!

    Currently, I’m reading The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand. It’s not bad but it’s not amazing. My boyfriend wanted me to read it since it’s one of his favorites so I’m determined to finish it.
