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.

Book 1 in the Bluebell Inn Romance series
Let me start by saying that I am already a huge fan of Denise Hunter. She has a way of weaving together a story of loss, hope, forgiveness and redemption that makes the reader gasp, laugh, and sigh with relief. The third act in this novel is not be missed. She made me cry and lose sleep, so you’ve been warned.
This story is a story within a story. The reader is gradually introduced to the older story while the main focus in on the current story. Molly and her siblings are finally opening the renovated Inn that their late parents had purchased. She is determined to finish what her parents started and then eventually get back to her life and plans. Adam is a writer looking for inspiration for his next book and he may have just found his muse in Molly; however, he values his privacy, which is why he writes under a pseudonym. Little does he know that Molly is his biggest fan. During the renovating, Molly finds an old love letter that never got sent (the Inn used to be a post office) and gets to Adam to help her find and track down the couple.
Molly and Adam both have past regrets and hurts that affect their prospective relationship. If they can find a way to allow God to heal them, they may find unimaginable treasure this Lake Season.
Hunter writes her characters in such an authentic way that just draws the reader in. Her portrayals of Molly and Adam are spot on and her ability to weave another couple’s story within Molly and Adam’s story is beautifully done and not to be missed. But really, go read this book right now. You won’t regret it.
