Review: Lake Season by Denise Hunter

Lake Season by Denise Hunter

Goodreads:  When their parents die in a tragic accident, Molly Bennett and her siblings pull together to fulfill their parents’ dream: turning their historic home back into an inn.

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

When Molly finds an old letter in the walls of her inn she embarks on a mission with Adam to find the star-crossed lovers and bring them the closure they deserve. But the guest she invites along has secrets of his own. Past and present collide as truths are revealed, and Molly and Adam will have to decide if love is worth trusting.

Kritters Thoughts:  The first in a series about a set of siblings who have come home after they tragically lost their parents in a car accident.  Molly and Levi return home to their younger sister Grace who has two years left of high school and are able to finish the renovations to the inn that their parents were doing and provide Grace a place to finish school.  

This first story centers specifically around Molly.  She is a lover of romance stories and is a big fan of the bestselling author Nathaniel Grey who is an author who has always hidden his identity.  Unbeknownst to Molly, he arrives in this small North Carolina town to regroup and outline his next novel.  He is in need of some inspiration and Molly and her family inn is the perfect place.

This was a great first story in a series as it set the place and location to the story and introduced the reader to the entire family while also telling a complete story about one of them.  I loved Molly.  She was such a great character to set the stage.  She is the middle sibling and felt as though she was the glue that held the family together.  I enjoyed the story arc between her and Adam Bradford.  I love mistaken identity and secrets and watching as all of them come out and seeing how the character will react to the truth.  

Denise Hunter does a great job of combining the romance genre and giving a great plot while keeping it true to the Christian fiction roots and leaving out the steamy scenes, but still having a great love story.  

Rating: definitely a good read, but can't read two in a row
