Lake Season is the first book in a new series by Denise Hunter set in Bluebell NC. A family of three – two sisters and a brother work to bring to reality their parents dream of opening a bed and breakfast place near a lake. Unfortunately their parents never could realise the dream themselves as they lost their lives in an accident.
Molly the elder of the girls is a book lover and swoons whenever she hears the name of a certain male author. Unbeknown to her said author is struggling to meet his latest deadline and is in her town looking for a muse and inspiration. But… he keeps his identity secret and writes under a different name. Both of them have a few family issues, yet on the whole are well adjusted young people.
As they put the final touches to the house a letter from the sixties is found in the wall. (The building in one of its former lives was a Post Office). This letter sets Molly off wanting to find out about Lizzie and the man the letter was written to. By this time Adam (the author) has arrived at the bed and breakfast and he helps. And so begins a journey that will led them to some surprising news and as well, along the way they grow as people.
So there is a pleasant setting, a mystery, some identity deception and kind warm hearted characters. The story pans out satisfactorily and of course – happily! Those looking for a gentle, heart warming romance would certainly enjoy this book.
