Women's Fiction Contemporary | Romance
Sonnet Romano's life is almost perfect. She has the ideal
career, the ideal boyfriend, and has just been offered a
prestigious fellowship. There's nothing more a woman
wants—except maybe a baby…brother?
When Sonnet finds out
her mother is unexpectedly expecting, and that the pregnancy
is high risk, she puts everything on hold—the job, the
fellowship, the boyfriend—and heads home to Avalon. Once her
mom is out of danger, Sonnet intends to pick up her life
where she left off.
But when her mother receives a
devastating diagnosis, Sonnet must decide what really
matters in life, even if that means staying in Avalon and
taking a job that forces her to work alongside her biggest,
and maybe her sweetest, mistake—award-winning filmmaker Zach
Alger. So Sonnet embarks on a summer of laughter and tears,
of old dreams and new possibilities, and of finding the home
of her heart.

Re: Return To Willow Lake
I LOVE your commute and your anywhere office! And as a fellow lefty and veteran smudger, I enjoyed learning about your peacock-blue-inked fountain pen!

I do the random paper and napkin thing when inspiration hits me. I just hate having to type it up afterwards.

It was interesting to read about your office/commute and where you find your inspiration. I wish my commute were as easy as yours...unfortunately it does involve a car, traffic, and time. The upside to that is I have discovered audio books, and have been able to increase my reading thusly. I was so excited to see a new book coming out by you, and can't wait!

My commute has always involved driving.. Your books are wonderful and I'm looking forward to your latest! Thanks for sharing some of your life with us readers!

Thank you for inviting us into your home. It was interesting to read about your house and where you write your wonderful books.

All that was missing from this posting were some pictures of what you see when you go out seeking inspiration (or waiting for inspiration to find you when walking or biking!).
A friend of mine was just out there, and she had the gall to keep telling me about the beautiful sunsets, and interesting wildlife. I just about killed her!
That's an area I would love to visit someday in person. Until then, I'll have to visit it in books.

It was such a thrill to read your posting today!! I don't know if it has anything to do with being left-handed as well, but I can't believe how many things we have in common!! I really thought that I lived in one of the prettier areas here in Michigan, being surrounded by acres of farmland and forest, but after reading about your picturesque setting, I would give my eye teeth to be where you are!! The herons have always been my favorite bird, and to see them would be a bit of a drive for me. Your view sounds like heaven as well, and I can picture it in my minds' eye. I also understand how hard it is to write in notebooks and about the ink smearing. It does get to be a problem!! Anyway, I'm really looking forward to reading your book. I think the cover is as breathtaking as the view from your house. Congratulations on your book, and it's definately on my TBR list.

Thank you for the lovely post!

Since I love your stories so much, I am thankful the dreary winters that allow your imagination to run free. Thank you so much for the many hours of pleasure your books have given me.

Living in land-locked eastern Nebraska, the muddy Missouri River is my only source of water "freedom". Thank you for writing characters and plots that I can get lost in.
(Joanne Hicks 10:02pm September 4, 2012)
I live in a beautiful area where all of the trees are starting to change color. It's natures way of showing off just how beautiful fall colors can be. I believe your surroundings have a lot to do with your inspirations for writing. Keep up the good work.

I really love your post. Being a foreclosure defense Kane
County lawyer, i really like your idea. I'd like to do
(Warren Scott 2:26am September 5, 2012)
Natural surroundings are ideal for letting the mind rattle around in the subconscious and dig out a plot twist or a true action for a character. Another way can be driving, provided it's a relaxing drive. Just removing the focus on carrying the plot forward allows the subconscious to produce half-formed ideas for your attention.

I'm also left-handed and when I was in high-school and vocational-technical college, I always wrote everything with a fountain pen in peacock-blue ink!! I was shocked to read this. I also own most all of your books! Your views sound beautiful, and I'm a bit envious...but I'm sure it's a plus for your great writing!

I agree that being by water is indeed refreshing and rejuvenating. You get energy from the water and transform it into creative passions. Getting in the "Zone" by water's edge isn't difficult. You just have to show up and let the ripples flow through you. Whenever my spirit needs refueling I find water of some kind and get renewed and go forward.

Hi, Susan -- I've moved from the center of Florida to the mountains of Colorado, and there's something peaceful about writing with nature as your surroundings, whether it's water or swaying aspens. But the longhand -- that makes me run away. I'd need a pen with cut and paste before I could go back to that "technology"
