Wish You Were Here

Guest Author - Elizabeth Darrach

Hello, and welcome back! We've had to clean snow off our cars several times this week, which gives me hope that we'll actually have a real winter this year. I can hardly wait. Of course, I realize that by about mid-February, I might be sick of snow, but right now, and especially after the last couple years, I'm anticipating a real winter season. That means plenty of reading time, in between shoveling out from under the snow.

This time out, I have Lani Diane Rich's Wish You Were Here (Grand Central) to share with you. Freya Daly's life sucks. She used to be totally in control, in charge, and together. Now, she cries all the time, and her dad has sent her to some podunk campground in Idaho to buy the property before he'll retire and put her in charge. She thinks. However, Nate Brody, the owner of the campground, has no intention of selling, at least not yet, and he's already told her father that. Nate's daughter Piper and even the cranky manager Ruby start to grow on her, though, almost as fast as the sensitive and smart Nate. Nate's decision not to sell is because he's got to find something his father left behind before his death, and Nate isn't the only person looking for this 'heirloom', but the other interested party isn't nearly as nice. Toss in Nate's ex, Piper's long-lost (by choice) mother, and things get even more complicated. Then, of course, Freya's not intending to stay in the middle of nowhere. She still wants to get back to Boston and her real life, no matter how deep the Brody's have burrowed into her heart. This one is sweet, with dashes of humor and emotion to tug at your heartstrings. I prefer this one to its predecessor, though I still wouldn't call it a keeper. Freya has a tendency to whine that I found a little annoying. But the story overall is charming. It's earned three and a half of Cupid's five arrows.

Until next time, happy reading!
