This is a sweet classic romance with no explicit scenes. The conflicts are internal rather than external, which is what the other reviewers disliked. I found the book enjoyable and entertaining.
"I know when you meet this warm unique family, you will want to follow each of them on their individual journey to discovering what Eden Hall means to them and how the strength of their alliance helps them each find love and happiness.
The theme of this new release, Willow Wood is also about a life's journey and how events impact on interrelationships and the quest for love and happiness.
The setting is Carlton, Ohio.
Nolan Ramsey thinks he wants to be alone. He leaves his life in the city, leaves his job as a news reporter, and buys a house in the middle of nowhere. He plans a life of complete isolation with just his dog, Scuba, for company.Calinda Willow returns home to help her aging father at the end of his life. She copes with the loss by throwing herself into her work, rejects social invitations from her friend, Jackie, and thinks she is content with her solitary life. They are both wrong.
This is a contemporary life story of a man who had to cope with the stress caused by his past , his desire to recuperate lost opportunities . He is committed to writing his story.
It is a story of retraction from life and its pleasures where guilt, misundersandings influence the development of a love relationship. Something like self-punishment and low expectations, as misguided self - worth and the feeling of rejection undermining the thoughts of love.
Calinda placed her finger over his lips when she saw he was going to interrupt her. “That’s why I didn’t try to call when you stopped contacting me. I didn’t want to intrude. I thought you were too busy for me.”
"Driving home Calinda thought about why she lost Nolan. She had begun their relationship on an open honest level, but then the door had closed. She’d never shared her feelings again and when he had to dive into his work, she had withdrawn. She knew she did it, so she wouldn’t interfere, but seeing it from his side, she knew it looked like she just didn’t care. And when he was struggling with leaving for the tour, she had done and said all the wrong things. Her intentions may have been good, but she hadn’t handled it well."
Nolan wondered why wasn’t she calling him? Why wasn’t she worried about not hearing from him? Maybe something had happened to her? From longing, to anger, to worry, he now thought his initial concern was correct. She just didn’t care.
The story is well-written for easy reading. Nothing special is particularly standing out.

The story needed some major obstacle to their getting together other than just their inability to communicate and/or commit and some real emotion somewhere. I kept reading, hoping to find something like this, but it never happened.
It was hard to feel anything but irritation for the whiny characters who didn't want to stand up for themselves or what they wanted.
The author's writing style was fine, but she needs to find a way to infuse some emotion and substance into her stories.
If you're looking for a light read for the beach, this might work for you.
Instead, it is a somewhat fluffy book that is good enough to warrant a read. I found that it is more of a character study than actually a book - the plot curve is a big stagnant for me. I kept waiting for the story to pick up and, by and large, it really didn't. It felt more like a snipper or a book or a prelude to a bigger story.
I did finish it, but I just felt a bit let down by it all.
I will say that the copyediting was good.
