it was ok

Even with superb writing, several irritating plot devices can derail a book for me, and that is what happened in Ms. Wiggs’ latest release. If you can go with the flow, then you might enjoy this book more than I did.
Sonnet Romano almost has the world on a string. She has a fabulous career in NYC employed by a non-profit organization that works to save children’s lives all over the world. She finally has a relationship with her success-driven, goal-oriented father General Lawrence Jeffries, and she has met a gorgeous new man, Orlando Rivera, courtesy of her father’s introduction. Still, coming back to Willow Lake for her step-sister Daisy’s wedding is a bittersweet experience. She has so much she wants to accomplish and New York is the right place for her, but vivid memories of her childhood growing up in Willow Lake pull on her heart.
After Daisy’s wedding she has some of the “always a bridesmaid, never the bride” blues so she decides to top off her Jell-O shots with some solitary champagne drinking. But that idea is curtailed by the arrival of Zach Alger, one of the groomsman and her childhood friend. She hasn’t seen him in a while, but she is astonished how gorgeous he is. He cajoles her into taking a boat ride with him, and after docking it at the boat house, they finish off the bottle and talk. Talking leads to flirting and flirting leads to some great sex. Sonnet is appalled to discover that Zach’s video camera has been on the whole time, but he quickly pulls out the SD card and tosses it in the lake. Still their night of passion doesn’t go unnoticed - the next morning they are noticed by the town gossip.
