Book Description

Peter Kosten is starting over. Leaving behind a successful career and a failed marriage, his vision for the future is colored by disappointment. During his time at Walnut Lodge, he hopes to reinvent himself, to recover the ideals and dreams he shared with the one real love of his life, the girl who vanished without a trace sixteen years earlier.
Walnut Lodge is Tess Weldon’s life. The grand old house is her business, her home and her safe haven, its staff her friends and family. Her secrets are safe within its walls. Guided by the vision she shared with her late husband, her future finally seems secure, until her past checks in to the Lodge.
Fate may have brought Peter and Tess full circle, but lost love found doesn’t necessarily lead to a second chance.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hooked AGAIN August 24, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was reluctant to begin The Walnut Ridge series. In reality, how could an author compete with the first series, Miracle at Valley Rise? Well, Karen Welch has done it again. This book makes the reader feel like they are a guest at the Lodge and all the characters are friends. My family is dealing with cancer treatments right now and I desperately needed a nice and easy getaway. I feel more rested now that I've visited with Tess and Peter. A very nice escape for a few minutes each day. The only negative is that I now have to WAIT for book two. Keep up the good work Karen Welch. You are amazing!

5.0 out of 5 stars An enjoyable and easy read. September 12, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
An enjoyable and easy read. I thought the characters were well thought out and the author made them real to me. I loved the way you could almost see and feel the see the grounds, people and their emotions. Karen Welch is an amazing author and I will be reading more of her works. I enjoy books that when I'm finished I feel it was like visiting friends, and this book did that.

Fantastic book would recommend to anyone that is ready to read a book that you don't want to put down. What a wonderful story teller she is!

I am so glad I have found another author that writes stories that are just plain good reading. This is that type of book you don't want to and enjoy!

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Finding true love once in your lifetime is wonderful. But finding it twice, is a miracle. Loved this story of Tess and Jan and how they found each other again after so long. I did not want this story to end!

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good. Jan (Pieter) was the ideal man September 14, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Pretty good. Jan (Pieter) was the ideal man, patient, forgiving, handsome. Was it believable? Eh, probably not but I don't read fiction for realism, but escapism. So in that regard, it was good.
