*Starred Review* Don't mess with success. That is what Annie Rush tells herself. The Key Ingredient, the cooking show she created, which stars her husband, Martin Harlow, is wildly successful. So does it really matter if Martin occasionally strays from the show's original vision? Although Annie would like to have been in front of the camera, she must admit that viewers love Martin's perky cohost, Melissa Barrett. Then Annie arrives on the set of the show with wonderful news to share with Martin and discovers him in a private "meeting" with Melissa. Annie walks away, then suffers a tragic accident. Now, one year later, she is back home in Switchback, Vermont, wondering if she can reassemble the pieces of her life. Best-selling Wiggs (Starlight on Willow Lake, 2015) writes with a seemingly effortless sense of grace about what breaks families apart as well as what brings them back together. Add this to her gift for crafting exquisitely nuanced characters as well as her flair for perfectly capturing the rhythm of life in a small town, and you have a soul-satisfying story, like those by Robyn Carr and Debbie Macomber, that will delight both romance readers and fans of women's fiction.

Happily married and happily pregnant when she falls into a long-term coma, TV producer Annie Harlow awakens to discover that she has lost more than a year of her life. So she does what any smart heroine would do—she heads to the family's maple farm in Switchback, VT. There she heals with the help of her relatives and remembered neighbors and classmates. Then she finds a cookbook her grandmother wrote containing a mystery well worth pursuing. From a No. 1 New York Times best-selling author; with a 250,000-copy first printing.[Page 90].
