Jill, looks like I can leave a comment! Yay! *grin*

Winter Lodge is that good, huh? I was thinking whether I wanted to read it. I read Summer At Willow Lake and I kind of enjoyed it, except it was a little too slow-moving.

There's a new Susan Wiggs book out(can't remember title right now) which sounds good. I'm thinking of reading that too. *grin*

Hi Jace,

Yeah, I changed the settings so that you don't need the word verification. I don't know what exactly it's verifing anyway.

I really loved Winter Lodge, but I am a real sucker for childhood love stories. I just think that Wiggs is really talented. This is the only book that I have read by her though. I will say that as far as sensuality goes, we were left at the bedroom door. This doesn't really bother me, but I can see that other people might be disappointed by this aspect of the book. Also, it is not until the end that the couple does finally get together, but man when they do, I was crying my eyes out!
