SAM’S LETTERS TO JENNIFER
BY JAMES PATTERSON
Lake Geneva is everywhere in this book: Yerkes Observatory, the Lake Geneva Country Club, Black Point, sailing through the Narrows, Venetian Fest, and more. This one is a good romance with complex family relationships (and the kind of book that will make you shed tears). No spoilers here, but this is definitely a book that will make you realize how much this area has to offer.
