About the Book
Book: Lake Season
Author: Denise Hunter
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: November 12, 2019
A lost letter, a new love, and old secrets beckon this summer at the Bluebell Inn.
When their parents die in a tragic accident, Molly Bennett and her siblings pull together to fulfill their parents’ dream: turning their historic Bluebell, North Carolina home back into an inn. The situation would just be temporary—three years at the most—then they would sell the inn and Molly could get back to chasing her own dreams.
Adam Bradford (aka bestselling author Nathanial Grey) 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 immediately 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 embarks on a mission with Adam to find the star-crossed lovers and bring them the closure they deserve. But Adam 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.

Lake Season was an engaging story with characters I cared about and wanted to see get some happiness in their lives. The premise of the story was cute and romantic. A recluse author (Adam), a little bit nerdy, is looking for some inspiration for his next story while he is fighting writer’s block. He finds it in Molly who is an inn owner with her brother and sister. They start off as friends, though Adam is already very attracted to her, and he finds out that Molly has a huge crush on his non de plume. Mistaken identities and half truths happen, trust is broken, and love is tested.
All this is happening while Adam and Molly are also working on a side project- trying to locate a couple who were torn apart by hurtful words a long time ago. This is all due to a letter that was written and lost and only found during the inn’s renovations.
Molly has some trust issues as she and her siblings are also dealing with the sudden lost of their parents a year earlier. I felt the author wrote their grief realistically and since this is the beginining of the series I look forward to Levi and Grace’s stories. The choices they made together as a family after their parents’s deaths were sacrificial and heartwarming. I like how close they are.
Adam was a great hero. He was very romantic and shy all at once. He was never too sure of himself. I liked watching him come out of his shell and the growth of his and Molly’s relationship. This was a fun story.
I received a copy of this novel from the publisher. I was not required to post a positive review and all views and opinions are my own.
