Today I'm reviewing The Winter Lodge by Susan Wiggs.
Summary from GoodReads: On the longest night of the year, Jenny Majesky loses everything in a devastating house fire. But among the ashes she finds an unusual treasure hidden amid her grandfather's belongings, one that starts her on a search for the truth, and on a path toward a life that she never imagined. The Winter Lodge, a remote cabin owned by her half sister on the shores of Willow Lake, becomes a safe refuge for Jenny, where she and local police chief Rourke McKnight try to sort out the mysteries revealed by the fire. But when a blizzard traps them together, Jenny, accustomed to the safe predictability of running the family bakery, suddenly doesn't feel so secure. For even as Rourke shelters her from the storm outside, she knows her heart is at risk. Now, following her dreams might mean walking away from her one chance at love.
Review after the jump!
Review: Now I don’t believe I’ve read the first book in this series, but I didn’t ever feel lost. I was glad that it had more plot twists than some of the Christmas romance books that are released this time of year. My main frustration in this, and lots of other books, is the lack of communication being the main hindrance to the characters’ happiness. Verdict: Not the best book I’ve ever read, but far from the worst. The Winter Lodge has just enough twists to keep the readers hooked and I would consider picking up some more of the The Lakeshore Chronicles books.
