The Summer Hideaway by Susan Wiggs

Lakeshore Chronicles #7
Set in Avalon, New York
Finished 3/6/10 12:30am
book #13 for the year

I will say that the beginning was a little drawn out. I was eager to get to th part where George and Charles reunited. This DEFINITELY put a new spin on the series for me...I almost want to go back and read the books again, knowing what I know now. I probably won't since I hate re-reading books. I really liked Ross and Claire and hope to see them in future books...and the scenes toward the end of the book with the family surrounding George in his final days were very heartwarming. I would love to spend my finals days somewhere as peaceful and relaxing as Willow Lake. I also didn't remember that Phillip was George's son. For some reason, I vaguely remember a storyline about that, but I'm not 100% sure. And I was disappointed that Daisy wasn't in this book much. I also couldn't remember who a couple of the other characters were, It's too bad we have to wait a whole year for the next book in the series. But the next book will be about Daisy so it will be worth the wait!
