THE SUMMER HIDEAWAY
Genre: Contemporary Romance, General Contemporary Romance
Richly evocative, emotionally charged and frequently wryly humorous, the latest installment of The Lakeshore Chronicles is a winner from start to finish. Not to be missed.
After two years in Afghanistan piloting a medevac helicopter, Ross Bellamy returns to the States to face a crisis of a different kind. His grandfather, George, has terminal cancer, and is refusing to spend his final days suffering the side effects of further treatment. Instead, George has hired Claire Turner, a private nurse, and gone back to Willow Lake to attempt a reconciliation with his long-estranged brother.
The rest of the Bellamys think George is being victimized by Claire, but it doesn't take Ross long to see that isn't the case. Claire's admittedly a mystery, but Ross finds her unexpectedly appealing. Romance isn't something Claire has ever had time for -- she's a protected witness on the run from a murderer -- but Ross tempts her to change her thinking on the subject. (MIRA, Mar., 432 pp., $7.99)
