To all of my "Virgin River" goodreads friends: Run...do not walk to get this book (if you have not already)!
Wow! I am so happy to have accidently stumbled upon this author recently. The "Virgin River" books by Robyn Carr are one of my favorite contemporary romance series and I am always looking for another series like it. I have found it with these books by Susan Wiggs! The story is told with a combination of flashbacks and present day situations. I was not sure I would like it and I found myself loving it! Summer at Willow Lake also tells the story of other characters that are related to the main ones. I loved Lolly and Connor's relationship. As the book unfolds, we learn that they had been each other's first love at Lolly's grandparents' Summer camp. Connor grew up in a difficult household and Lolly did too. The circumstances were totally different, but that was one of the bonds they shared. I could go on and on about how much I loved these two and why this story worked for me, but I will not bore any of my goodreads friends who are kind enough to read my review! I just want to add one more quick point in case anyone is wondering...This story was not as steamy as maybe some of the "Virgin River" books, but I enjoyed it just as much. It definitely was a romance and I am anxious to read more!
