Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted here, which spotlights new books we are anticipating.
Lisa Kleypas is a recently discovered author for me. In a short time, I've devoured most of her historical romances and I love them. She creates unforgettable characters and doesn't always do what's expected with them. Dream Lake is the third in the Friday Harbor saga.
Here's the synopsis from Goodreads:
Dream Lake takes readers once again to the exquisite setting of Friday Harbor, and tells the story of Zoӫ Hoffman, an innkeeper who has all but given up on love. She’s a gentle, romantic soul, but has been so hurt in the past that she dare not trust her heart with anyone. Especially not Alex Nolan. Alex is the most haunted of all the Nolan brothers.
He drinks to keep his demons at bay and not only has he given up on love, he has never, ever believed in it. Zoӫ and Alex are oil and water, fire and ice, sunshine and shadow.
But sometimes, it takes only a glimmer of light to chase away the dark. Dream Lake is classic Lisa Kleypas: romantic, powerful, emotional, and magical
