The Winter Lodge by Susan Wiggs

This book was a wonderful blend of romance, family generations and complicated relationships with some suspense thrown in. In this book the main character cooks up her Grandmother's wonderful Polish recipes. Each chapter begins with a mouth watering recipe.

Returning to Camp Kioga in Avalon, a small New York town where the wealthy Bellamy family has deep roots, the spotlight on Avalon native Jenny Majesky, a food columnist and bakery owner who learned in the last Lakeshore tale that Phillip Bellamy is her birth father. Alone and grieving following the death of her beloved grandmother—Jenny's mom left her at age four—Jenny's life turns even worse when her house burns to the ground. Stunned, homeless and keeping afloat with a little help from the medicine cabinet, Jenny moves in with Avalon police chief and notorious lady's man Roarke McKnight, a friend she fell out with after a night of drunken, mind-blowing sex a decade before.

I have been listening to this book whilst, exercising, cleaning the house and doing the ironing. It made some really boring chores bearable. I thoroughly enjoyed it and am looking forward to the another 'Lakeshore Chronicles' book.
