Last night, thanks to a writer friend, I think I figured out what has been missing from my current WIP.
I celebrated with a supper of popcorn, and while munching this healthy meal, finished reading Lakeshore Christmas by Susan Wiggs. Then I needed to clean my beloved bifocals, because I had specks of runny mascara on them. The book ended beautifully. I dare you to read it without shedding at least a few tears. Happy tears--you know the kind.
The love story is between small-town librarian Maureen Davenport and former child star Eddie Haven. But there is so much more going on. This book is about miracles and second chances and working together as a community.
Lakeshore Christmas is available in hardcover or ebook at various locations, including Barnes & Noble. You can learn more about Susan Wiggs at her website and her blog.
(In case you didn't know it, I love Susan's books, and I hope to eventually write well enough to put specks on my readers' bifocals.)
