Starlight on Willow Lake by Susan Wiggs

This was a sweet story. Susan Wiggs was a new author for me to read, though I had heard of her prior. I really enjoyed her style of writing. It felt almost similar to my own, and I liked that.

I liked the originality of this story line. This is sometimes hard to do in the romance world, but this one was a carefully thought out story. Mason has just helped his siblings release the ashes to their father. He seems to be the one who wants nothing to so with family and avoids them at all costs. But life happens and his siblings can't take care of their mom, leaving him to step in.

He has to hire some new caretakers to his mother--who has quite the mouth on her. In comes Faith, who has a story of her own. She is a single mother to three children of her own.

This story is more than just a romance. We are taken on a journey with these characters. Mason grows a lot in this book as he discovers the things he truly wants, and it isn't what he orfinally planned.

A very heartfelt book. One I would recommend to readers wanting to just escape and read a story that will capture their attention with a bit of mystery and romance.

About The Book

Join #1 New York Times bestselling author Susan Wiggs on a journey to a charming Catskills town that feels like home and where a cast of brilliantly drawn characters awaits in a poignant story of reconciliation and the healing power of love.

When caregiver Faith McCallum arrives at the enchanted lakeside estate of Avalon's renowned Bellamy family, she's intent on rebuilding her shattered life and giving her two daughters a chance at a better future. But she faces a formidable challenge in the form of her stubborn and difficult new employer, Alice Bellamy. While Faith proves a worthy match for her sharp-tongued client, she often finds herself at a loss for words in the presence of Mason Bellamy—Alice's charismatic son, who clearly longs to escape the family mansion and return to his fast-paced, exciting life in Manhattan…and his beautiful, jet-setting fiancĂ©e.

The last place Mason wants to be is a remote town in the Catskills, far from his life in the city, and Faith McCallum is supposed to be the key to his escape. Hiring the gentle-hearted yet strong-willed caregiver as a live-in nurse gives his mother companionship and Mason the freedom to return to his no-attachments routine. For Faith, it means stability for her daughters and a much-needed new home. When Faith makes a chilling discovery about Alice's accident, Mason is forced to reconsider his desire to keep everyone, including his mother, at a distance. Now he finds himself wondering if the supercharged life he's created for himself is what he truly wants…and whether exploring his past might lead to a new life—and lasting love—on the tranquil shores of Willow Lake.Amazon | Books-A-Million | Barnes & Noble
