Review: Starlight on Willow Lake

About the Book:
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.

My Comments:
...and they all lived happily ever after.  It is published by Harlequin, has a cover like that and is written by Susan Wiggs; of course they all lived happily ever after.  While I enjoyed the book and found it to be a heartwarming read, I have to admit that things just seemed a little too cleanly wrapped up in the end.  

I'd like to thank the publisher for making a review copy available via NetGalley.  Grade:  B-


  1. Is this the end of the series? I haven't read the last few.

    1. I don't know. I don't remember if there was any obvious target for another book or not.
