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!

I got to a point where the book started to drag --- I found myself speed readijng over pages and pages of the same-o-same-o. I thought it was too much like watching a tennis match - Katie's battle with yes she will, no she won't..... got kind of tiresome. But I liked the end results. I was kind of worried there for a moment that Jan(Peter) would die from his injuries. I wouldn't not pass it along to a friend. Sorry.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sweet story of love reunited December 28, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Loved it! A modern twist on "Persuasion". Lots of love, lots of heartache, a bit of suspense as history and flashbacks unfold. Great character development, and I was glad to see the story from both Tess's and Peter's point of view. I appreciated the love and desire, and glad for appropriateness--no pornographic sex scenes described here! That's great! Great solid love story, along with living through a difficult past and making a great life and success out of heartache.

5.0 out of 5 stars Marti' s review January 25, 2015
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really liked this book. The story was very real, with very real situations and characters. The heroine Tess is a widow and she owns a hotel. Peter is recently divorced and starting over in his life. Fate gets them back together after 16 years, to him Tess is the "one that got away". Many secrets and family dynamics and betrayals play into the story. Loved the plot and the twists and how the characters get themselves together. The ending is not unexpected, but still leaves you warm and fuzzy.

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!
