Can a single moment change your entire life?
International lawyer Sophie Bellamy has dedicated her life to helping people in war-torn countries. But when she survives a hostage situation, she remembers what matters most--the children she loves back home. Haunted by regrets, she returns to the idyllic Catskills village of Avalon on the shores of Willow Lake, determined to repair the bonds with her family.
There Sophie discovers the surprising rewards of small-town life--including an unexpected passion for Noah Shepherd, the local veterinarian. Noah has a healing touch for anything with four legs, but he's never had any luck with women--until Sophie.
Snowfall at Willow Lake speaks from the heart about all the loves that fill a woman's life, and all the ways that love is tested and made to grow. It's the story of what comes after a woman survives an unspeakable horror and finds her way home, to healing and redemption and a new chance at happiness.

Snowfall at Willow Lake
Every station on Noah Shepherd's truck radio was broadcasting the incessant warning. The National Weather Service had issued an advisorya prediction of snow, ice and windwhiteout conditions in a lake-effect snowstorm.Authorities were urging people to stay home tonight, to keep the roads clear for emergency vehicles only. The county airport had closed hours ago. Even the heaviest snow-removal equipment was having trouble lumbering along the highway. Only madmen and fools would be out in this.
Well, madmen, fools and large-animal vets. Noah wished his windshield wipers had a faster setting. The wind-driven snow was coming so hard and fast it was like a solid wall of white. He could barely tell whether or not he was on an actual road.
Legend had it that during lake effect, magic happened. Right, he thought. If this was magic, he'd stick with reality.
After delivering the Osmonds' foal, he should have taken them up on their offer to stay the night, waiting until the weather and roads cleared before making his way back to his home and adjacent clinic miles away. However, according to reports, it could be days before the storm played itself out and it was likely to get worse before it got better. He had the Palmquists' geriatric beagle in the clinic, a cat recovering from spinal surgery and his own animals, which currently included an abandoned pup. He knew he could always call his neighbor, Gayle, to look in on them, but he hated to bother her. With her husband serving overseas and three kids underfoot, she sure as hell didn't need to go traipsing over to his place to check on the animals.
Besides, his scrubs were covered in birth blood and fluid. He needed a show...

I DONâT CARE ABOUT DAISY!!
Reviewer: A reader from Canberra, AU
So very little happens in Susan Wiggs books, I often find myself taking a break in frustration. Somewhere in there is a decent story, but it struggles under all the painfully lengthy description and the repetition. Wiggs needs a better editor.
I donât get why so many chapters of these books begin with a recipe. Why do I need to know how to make French cheese puffs just before I read about a terrorist attack? And â if Wiggs is aiming for a cosy kind of small town romance â why does she then go and involve outlandish international terrorism storylines to go alongside the idealistic small-town setting? The ideas just donât gel, creating a confusing mess of different genres.
Iâm a little perplexed as to why the age difference between Noah and Sophie was made into such a big deal. How come it is perfectly acceptable â the norm, in fact â for a man to have a lover younger than him, but when the roles are reversed offensive names like âcougarâ have to be thrown around?
I did appreciate that there was more focus in this one. There werenât tangents galore like in the book one, for example, the only significant tangent being bland old Daisy. It allowed for better relationship development for the two main characters, and I came to like both of them very much. Noah was a far better-developed hero than others I have read from this author.
The painfully predictable ending ruined what would otherwise have been a decent final quarter of the book.
