 Description:
Chelsea Enright never expected to inherit her grandmother's lakeside cottage deep in the Adirondacks—a serene getaway that had been mysteriously closed up decades ago. This is no simple bequest, however, because when Chelsea finds her grandmother's WWII diaries, she's stunned to discover that they hold secrets she never suspected . . . and they have the power to turn her own life upside down. Even more surprising is the compelling presence of local doctor Brandon "Yale, and Chelsea soon finds her "short stay" has stretched into the entire summer. She cannot put this cottage and her family's past behind her easily—and the more she learns about the woman her grandmother truly was, the more Chelsea's own life begins to change . . . and nothing will ever be the same again.
My Rating:
Review: More Than Words Can Say
My Review: After inheriting her grandmother's cottage, Chelsea decides to visit the cottage to honor her Gram's last wishes.  Thirty-three year old Chelsea is still looking for love never finding the right man's man.  Brandon has a secret guilt that he can't seem to let go.  Grandmother Brooke has lived with a deep secret and questions all her life and her family has always questioned why she never returned to her beloved cottage.  There she finds family secrets and a handsome doctor, Brandon, who has his own mysterious pass. This laid-back read switches from Chelsea's contemporary story to Brooke's (Gram) love story which took place during WWII.  
While the secrets aren't stunning or surprising, they are revealed in a way that maintains interest throughout the book.  This book reminds me a bit of the The Violets of March by Sarah Jio but the feel of the book and the writing style is different.  While I liked the book and the characters, I didn't love them.  I thought the relationship between Chelsea and Brandon was rushed and not as believable while I loved the relationship of Bill, Brooke, and Greg.  I enjoyed the moments in the past more than the present.  However, I think I liked the unwinding of the story most of all.
