LAKE SEASON by Denise Hunter, Reviewed by Rebecca Maney

"Mi piacerebbe molto discutere di libri con te. "

"I would very much like to discuss books with you". . . . "He said the sweetest things", even though Adam Bradford had no idea that Molly was actually quite fluent in Italian and understand every single thing that he was supposedly telling himself. The more time that she spent with the reclusive researcher who was residing in her family's inn for the duration of the summer, the more endearing he became. Especially when he turned his full attention on a little research project of their own.

"He found her gift of gab charming and was envious of her easy way with people."

Molly Bennett had become his muse. Author Adam Bradford had traveled to the small lake town of Bluebell, North Carolina hoping to escape a serious attack of writer's block and his publisher's impending deadlines. After all, it was the area where his mother had enjoyed staying while researching her ancestry. Since his best selling novels were written under a pseudonym, he knew it would be tricky to hide his true identity from the gregarious, and quite lovely innkeeper, (who just so happened to love his books) but Adam was totally unprepared for the price he would have to pay to bare open his heart.

What a lovely story! The setting is quaint, but believable and the characters practically jump off the page, they are so appealing. The strength of this story though is in the full realization that God, in fact does, work all things together for good. . . . . .even when the truth hurts. 3.5 stars

BackCover Blurb:
Romance and old secrets beckon in this small North Carolina lake town.

When her parents die in a tragic accident, Molly Bennett and her siblings pull together to fulfill their parents’ dream of turning their historic Bluebell, North Carolina, home back into an inn. Staying in town would be temporary—three years at most—then they plan to sell the inn, and Molly can get back to chasing her own dreams.

Adam Bradford (aka bestselling author Nathaniel Quinn) is a reclusive novelist with a bad case of writer’s block. Desperate for inspiration as his deadline approaches, he travels to the setting of his next book, a North Carolina lake town. There, he meets his muse, a young innkeeper who fancies herself in love with his alter ego.

Molly and Adam strike up an instant friendship. When Molly finds a long-lost letter in the walls of her inn, she and Adam embark on a mission to find the star-crossed lovers and bring them the closure they deserve. But Adam has secrets he isn’t ready to share. Past and present collide as truths surface, and Molly and Adam will have to decide if love is worth trusting.
