Susan Wiggs's Lakeshore Chronicles series has captivated thousands of readers with its relatable characters, warm humor and engaging stories. Summer at Willow Lake is the story that started it all. Meet Olivia, Connor and the families and friends of Willow Lake that make these emotional romances a must-read.

Real estate expert Olivia Bellamy reluctantly trades a trendy Manhattan summer for her family's old resort camp in the Catskills, where her primary task will be renovating the bungalow colony for her grandparents, who want one last summer together filled with fun, friends and family. A posh resort in its heyday, the camp is now in disarray and Olivia is forced to hire contractor Connor Davis-a still-smoldering flame from her own summers at camp.

But as the days grow warm, not even the inviting blue waters of Willow Lake can cool the passions flaring or keep shocking secrets at bay. The nostalgic joy of summers past breathes new promise into a special place and people…a promise meant to last long after the season ends.

Don't miss the latest story, Return to Willow Lake, Book 9 of the Lakeshore Chronicles.

a world I'll be revisiting time & time again
July 25th, 2015
Wiggs has created a picturesque and uniquely inviting novel that draws you into the Catskills, allowing you to vacation alongside the characters. Intricate descriptions bring everyday events to life in such a way that I felt as if I were there. The plot of the tale had me intrigued, and the development definitely did it justice. The multiple steps back into the characters’ pasts, showing how they came to be who they are today, was both informative and completely entertaining. Wiggs gives a complete picture of who each of the characters are, and how their lives intersect one another. Knowing Olivia & Connor’s pasts helps understand how they interact with one another today. Their individuality yet need to prove themselves to overcome their pasts comes about in very different ways, yet holds them together as well. Wiggs not only creates the type of characters that you love getting to know throughout a novel, but the type of characters that you are dying to follow through an entire series. I can’t wait to see Daisy & Max grow up, and I love knowing that we’ll get to see more of Greg and Freddy and Dare. Wigg’s first novel in her Lakeshore Chronicles launches a series I definitely can’t wait to continue following. This novel captured me heart and soul, introducing me to a world I will be revisiting time & time again.
