Reader Review: This story follows a baseball player trying to make it to the majors with an astranged 12 year old son, and a PR agent who just had a very public break up with her very famous client. THIS is by far the best Lakeshore Chronicles novel yet! It was fun, sad, cute, ... if you thought Bo Crutcher was a confirmed bachelor read this and you will fall in love!!!
Baseball hopeful Bo Crutcher is about to get his shot at the majors. That is, until life throws him a curveball. When AJ, the son he's never met, lands on his doorstep, Bo's life becomes a whole new ball game. He needs help--fast.
Enter Kimberly van Dorn. Hired to smooth Bo's rough exterior for the media, she expects the kind of shallow pro athlete she's used to handling. But Bo is willing to sacrifice everything for his vulnerable son. Kim can train him to hit a home run with the press, but over a breathtaking winter on frozen Willow Lake, she realizes he has far more to teach her about the game of life...and putting love first.

The dark glasses didn't hide a thing, not really. When people saw someone in dark glasses on a cloudy day in the middle of winter, they assumed the wearer was hiding the fact that she'd been drinking, crying or fighting.
Or all of the above.
Under any number of circumstances, Kimberly van Dorn enjoyed being the center of attention. Last night, when she'd donned her couture gown with its scandalous slit up the side, turning heads had been the whole idea. She'd had no idea the evening would implode the way it had. How could she?
Now, at the end of a soul-flattening red-eye flight, she kept her shades on as the plane touched down and taxied to the Jetway. Coach. She never flew coach. Last night, however, first class had been sold out, personal comfort had taken a back seat to expediency, and she'd found herself in seat 29-E in the middle of the middle section of the plane, wedged between strangers. Sometimes the need to get away was more powerful than the need for legroom. Although her stiff legs this morning might argue that point.
Who the hell had designed coach class, anyway? She was convinced she had the imprint of her seatmate's ear on her shoulder. After his fourth beer, he kept falling asleep, his head lolling onto her. What was worse than a man with a lolling head?
A man with a lolling head and beer breath, she thought grimly, trying to shake off the torturous transcontinental night. But the memories lingered like the ache in her legsthe lolling guy with a snoring problem, and, on her other side, an impossibly chatty older gentleman, who talked for hours about his insomnia. And his bursitis. And his lousy son-in-law, his fondness for fried sweet potatoes and...

Preaching author and bratty kid.

I give up. It seems all small-town contemporary romance series are written by women who feel the need to whack us over the head in order to preach their âissuesâ. Robyn Carr has her womenâs health and babies. Susan Wiggs has her mixed race children and teenaged parents. When I read a book about an âissueâ I like to be able to come to conclusions on my own. As a well-educated ADULT, I do not need an author telling me exactly how to think, thank you very much.
You know, for the most part, I quite liked Bo and Kim â the main couple in this predictably predictable book (though itâs actually much more about Bo and his grumpy son). In fact, the relationship would have been good if it had been given some page time to develop. ANY time would have been good.
So, basically, be warned: this one is mega-preachy. As in, if you want to know every detail about the authorâs attitudes towards illegal immigration, youâre going to get that and then some.

But reading this book felt like getting a good talking to from a nasty schoolteacher. I am the product of war refugees, so I know about being kicked out of your country and about discrimination. I donât need the author trying to make me feel guilty. Thatâs not why I bought this book. If you want to know every detail about the authorâs attitudes towards illegal immigration, youâre going to get that and then some.
The preaching about vegetarianism continues too. But after a book of heaping on the misplaced guilt and horror, the author makes sure everything gets wrapped up with a nice big bow. Even so, but I donât find a romance novel where the hero dumps the heroine for his bratty little son romantic. There was chapter after chapter of telling, no showing. I didnât need to know the entire history and every detail of Boâs baseball career. Wiggsâ writing suffers from her inability to recognise what detail is necessary and what detracts. I didnât need eight pages describing how excited Bo had been about his first aeroplane flight. By page eighty-eight I knew the life stories of dozens of minor characters. By now Iâve realised itâs best to skip any section of the book that has the word âDaisyâ in it. You lose nothing from the story, donât have to try and tolerate the boredom of Daisyâs Mary Sue perfection and the Gary Stu perfect baby.
I felt like Susan Wiggs wanted me to feel guilty about many things. I couldnât get past that to take away anything positive.

This was my first Susan Wiggs book and I should have paid attention to the review. This is a preachy novel with little character development and an author with an agenda. I wasted money and time.
