When we met Daisy Bellamy in the first Lakeshore book, she was a teenager. She was mad at her parents, who later divorced, and she was acting out. Partying too hard, surly, etc. And then...she got pregnant and her life changed.

We have followed her trials and tribulations and the two guys who both love her: exotic Julian and home town boy and father of her son, Logan.

Daisy and Julian have never really had a chance. They meet at Camp Kioga one summer when he is visiting his brother, Connor (who is married to Daisy's cousin, Olivia). He leaves to go home and Daisy gets pregnant.

They stay in touch but Daisy is busy raising young Charlie and Julian is in the ROTC.

Logan, meanwhile, moves to Avalon to spend time with Charlie and he's become a stand up guy.

How does she choose because a choice must be made.

I loved the telling of this story (no I'm not going to say who she ends up with) but the problem is that I was TOLD the story. There was no emotion.

No, struggle over whom she ends up with. No emotion of any kind in this book. It was simply a recitation of facts with a few embellishments.

Sadly, after waiting so long, this book just fizzled out.
