#1 New York Times bestselling author Susan Wiggs explores the many facets of love and friendship in Summer at Willow Lake, where family ties clash with family secrets during long, hazy days and hot, languid nights... Renovating her family's once-posh resort is a labor of love for Olivia Bellamy. When duty calls, she forgoes a fast-paced Manhattan summer for the Catskills retreat, where her grandparents want everyone together for one last gathering of family and friends. But the camp is in disarray, and reclaiming its lost greatness seems beyond Olivia. Forced to hire contractor Connor Davis, she is caught between her irritation at his laid-back attitude and a still-smoldering flame for the man arising from her own summers at camp. As the days grow warm, not even the inviting blue waters of Willow Lake can cool the passions flaring between them-or keep her family's shocking secrets at bay.

3 1/2 stars I really liked the main story, however it was too bogged down with other peoples stories and too much jumping around different decades. Some of it added to the story, a lot of I think was in there just to get us to read more of the series. I would have preferred to read more of the roma...
