Review

Love Finds You in Lake Geneva Wisconsin
by Pamela S. Meyers

     I usually don't read romances, unless they are historical. And I’m so glad I read this one. It is set in 1933 in the resort town of Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. Meg Alden, a native of the city by the lake, has her heart set on being a newspaper reporter, but it is 1933 and most newspaper editors see a woman's job as writing for the society page.

     But, Meg won’t give up on her dream and then to add to her distractions is the new reporter on the paper, Jack Wallace, whose job she coveted. Their story has many twists and turns which leave you wondering will these two ever get together?

     The descriptions of the beautiful town of Lake Geneva and especially of the building of the Rivera are worth the read to anyone who is familiar with the area or you just want to remember or learn about an earlier era. Pamela has definitely done her research.
     
     I won’t give away any more of the story.

     Leave a comment to be entered. Leaving an email will be helpful to me. No international entries. Contest ends midnight, Thursday, March 21. Winner will be announced on this blog.
    







Pamela S. Meyers grew up in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, where she learned to swim in the shadow of the Riviera, attempted figure-eights on the lake's frozen waters in winter, and basked on its sunny beach as a teen. Pamela's tagline, "Take a Sentimental Journey," aptly describes her stories, which she sets in small towns mostly in her native Wisconsin. She is the author of two published novels and busy working on her third. She has also published articles in dozens of magazines and contributed to a nonfiction compilation. She can be found at www.pamelasmeyers.com.








I received a free copy of this book from the publisher, but I was under no obligation to read the book or post a positive review. The opinions expressed in this review are entirely my own.

  13. I've read and enjoyed several of the 'Love Finds You' books. I read mostly historical fiction, but usually set further back, so this time period might be a nice change of pace!
