International lawyer Sophie Bellamy has dedicated her life to helping people in war-torn countries. But when she survives a hostage situation, she remembers the children she loves back home. Haunted by regret, she returns to the idyllic Catskills village of Avalon on the shores of Willow Lake, determined to repair the bonds with her family. At Willow Lake, Sophie discovers the surprising rewards of small-town life -- including a vivid attraction to Noah Shepherd, the local veterinarian. Noah has a healing touch with four-legged creatures, though he's never had much luck with women.

Yay, she's back on her game! After trying -and failing - twice to read Dockside, the 3rd book in the Lakeshore Chronicles series, I was a little hesitant to pick up Snowfall on Willow Lake. I am glad I did! I loved Sophie more than I expected to. Her stoic external demeanor, self-doubts, perseverance, and determination are relatable and well-expressed. I also really liked the global element that the nature of her character and past introduced to the plot. It felt not quite so cheesy, and more wholesome, with this big picture perspective. Of course, Noah is charming even in his awkward moments. There is a twist to the story, emotional hurdles to overcome, and lots of family involvement, as per Susan Wiggs-style. My only irritation was the perspectives of Sophie's kids. Although I liked it at moments, it sometimes introduced too much to the plotline. Names began to become hard to keep track of. (And how many books are left in the series? Oh boy, what did I get myself into…) My suggestion is to keep notes of who is who throughout the series if you are going to read everything.

I have just read this book to a group of senior residents, and the ladies thoroughly enjoyed the characters and the interesting receipes in the book which we made before sitting down to a reading session. It was good for generating discussions of past experiences amongst the ladies. A good read!
