Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Daisy Bellamy has spent much of her young life juggling two men-Logan O'Donnell, the responsible father of their son, and wild military man Julian Gastineaux. She's been in love with Julian for years, but he's so mercurial that they've never been able to give their relationship a real chance. Logan, on the other hand, is reliable, stable, and committed to their son. Daisy and Julian finally decide to take the plunge, but their happiness is cut short when Daisy receives word that Julian has been killed in the line of duty in Colombia. Devastated, she takes a year to move on, marrying Logan in order to give Charlie a stable family. Julian, of course, isn't dead; he's been taken prisoner by a Colombian drug lord, and he eventually escapes and returns to Daisy, throwing her into a major dilemma. Wiggs's newest (after Summer at Willow Lake) is improbable in the extreme, with thin characters and contrived conflicts engineered to make the reader like Daisy despite her questionable actions.

I have read all the Lakeside Chronicle books and each time my only disappointment is that the book has ended.

I loved this book! The main characters are Daisy Bellamy single mother to a child by Logan and attracted since her teens to Julian. She is an accomplished photographer, loves to photograph nature scenes, but is earning a living doing wedding shoots. Logan has stepped up to the plate for their child Charlie, being a really good Dad to him. Julian has taken the time to turn himself into an honorable person getting his education and serving his country. Both men believe that Daisy and Charlie is their path to happiness. Now the plot gets complicated and to say more would spoil it for the reader.

The book dives into all types of relationship issues and all four main characters - Daisy, Julian, Logan and Charlie reveal themselves. It was interesting, informative, and has made me think long after I closed the book. I could not put this book down (finished at 3:30 am) and intend to re-read it soon. I have read all the Lakeside Chronicle books and each time my only disappointment is that the book has ended. I'd like to hang around Avalon a bit longer.

This is a hard one to write. The book was well written, was a good book in the sense that it kept me glued to the pages. Of course, I may have been anxiously looking for something happy to happen, so maybe that is what really kept me glued. On the one hand I really liked it - it was emotional, for sure. But it was draining.

Possible spoilers:
I can only say the characters of Daisy and Julian, with Logan on the side had become so big in past books that it was disappointing, when they finally get their story, Daisy and Julian get just a handful, very few pages devoted to them being together happily. The majority of the book was misery, depressing to read. I kept thinking as I began part 3 that the happy romance was going to come soon, but not so.

I would have given this book more stars had the turning point from misery to happiness started much sooner, instead of in the last couple of pages. Daisy and Julian had such a history and connection, they deserved more time in the book together, being happy. As a reader of this whole series I feel like I had an investment in Daisy and Julian and was disappointed.

I've been reading the Lakeshore series and anticipated Daisy and Julian's story. I don't know why - I didn't finish this. The book has no real romance to speak of, and the triangle of Daisy, Julian and Logan just went on and on...very disappointing. I'm done - sorry Ms. Wiggs but this book blew.

Loved Lakeshore Chronicles up to this book. Hated Marrying Daisy Bellamy whole story was full of pain or awkwardness. Nothing smooth about this book. I was anticipating the story of Daisy being great maybe that was my problem. There was zero romance in this story.

I have read all of the Lakeshore Chronicles. When I found out Daisy's story was finally going to be it's own book I was so excited, I felt like I had been watching her grow up. This was not the book I hoped it would be. So depressing and frustrating. Not what I expected of the characters I had come to know. Life is not easy or perfect, but what the author chose for these characters...disappointing. It brought Daisy and Julian's story to close, but it could have been done without so much suffering.

I really liked this book. Parts were so intense, I had to put it down for awhile. I would recommend this book to all readers. My only criticism, I would have liked more time with Daisy and Julian together.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
In Avalon, New York, wedding photographer Daisy Bellamy continues, as she has for years, strugglling to choose between two wonderful men who love her. She adores both hunks. Julian Gastineau could never live by Willow Lake while Logan O'Donnell could.

However, everything changes between the trio when Daisy gives birth to Logan's offspring Charlie. Yet nothing changes as in spite of having a child with a man who wants to raise a family with her, Daisy still has wet dreams involving Julian. She knows one day she will have to select between two lovers; one safe and nurturing while the other is wild and carefree.

The latest Lakeshore Chronicles (see Snowfall at Willow Lake and Summer at Willow Lake) is a profound character study that looks deeply into the souls of three protagonists. Daisy understands responsibility but desires running around the world as a crisis photojournalist. Julian offers her the freedom to soar anywhere; Logan offers her a safe haven to raise their child. Readers will enjoy this complicated relationship drama summed up by the Roy Orbison and Joe Melson song Running Scared.

I just finished reading the latest book in this series. I thought it was a pretty good story but would have liked more time with Daisy & Julian after they married. A little too much angst for my taste. But can I bring up a couple of questions regarding this series as a whole. First, wasn't it first written in the book about Jenny and Rourke that Nina was with Jenny, Rourke & Joey when she first found out she was pregnant but in hers & Greg's story, Wiggs changed it to Nina's mom taking her to the doctor to find out. Next, in the latest book Marrying Daisy Bellany, referenced is made to Grandma Jane being in heaven but later in the book she is alive and well. That maybe a misinterpretation on my part. But the kicker is this, in the Ross Bellamy book, Connor & Olivia had a boy named Ethan Bellamy Davis but in Marrying Daisy, Ethan becomes a girl named Zoe. Anyone else noticed these errors? I love the series it just these little things that can detract for me.
