Lake Season

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.

Fear is often just a lack of faith. I wasn’t trusting God with my future.
It is funny how small actions can change the course of a person’s life.

All things work together for the good of those who love God…

That’s what I did when I read the last word. It was a beautiful one.
It takes God’s help and great skill to weave a couple of topics into a beautiful story. That was what Denise did.

She was able to weave insecurities like lack of acceptance especially from parents to fear taking deep roots in a person’s life and influencing their every decision, to reunion, to love and most especially a book inside a book. Ahhhh! It was thrilling and beautiful.

Okay here is it.
Molly! The delightful, fearful Molly. Well we couldn’t blame her after all she had gone through fear was bound to take roots in her life but I blew out of proportions when she met the nerdy Adam. He came with his own baggage that pushed him into a life of insecurities and isolation until events both of them never saw happening changed everything.

The most beautiful part of this story was the both of the individually coming to a place of sincerity, and the decision to trust God over what they see and feel. Yes, that was the defining moments for the both of them to believe that “All things work together for the good of those who love God…” The good, the hurtful, the bad, the lies, the ugly… All things.

It took a lot of prayers, God’s word, friends and God’s Providence but it happened.

One other thing I loved about the book was the staggering effects actions have to change the whole course of a life.

Lake Season is not a book you should read in a hurry. It is a book you take your time and read while taking notes.

Here’s what I want everyone who reads my review to know. It’s okay that they left, it’s okay to feel that pain of death or separation, it’s okay that you both are apart or broken up, it’s okay when things go wrong and you can’t control them. It’s okay because you are in God and now in your confusion, complications and pain, more than ever All things work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose. He has a plan. His Providence is still at work. It’s okay to wait for, on and in Him. It is okay!

I received a copy of the book and this is my honest opinion.
