Denise Hunter begins a new series with this novel, set in a small Bluebell, NC. The Bennett siblings, Molly, Levi, and Grace lost their parents unexpectedly in a car accident and decide to finish turning their home into an inn as their parents were doing at the time of their death. When a reclusive author comes to stay, trying to cure his writer's block, he finds a muse in Molly Bennett. She loves his books but doesn't know he is the author because he writes under a pseudonym. No, Molly thinks she is in love with the author, not the real guy. Molly finds an old letter when they are remodeling the inn, which used to be the post office, and shares it with Adam, the writer, who she doesn't know is the writer. They decided to research this letter and maybe try to find the person who wrote it and the one to whom she wrote it. Thus begins a delightful and moving story, what we've come to expect from Hunter's work.
I found it difficult to tear myself away from this book long enough to do life. I fell in love with Bluebell and the Bennett family. I'm so glad each sibling will get a story. Hunter builds on each character until we are fully vested in their lives. It's as if we can get into their hears and minds and feel their emotions. I was in tears during several scenes. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and look forward to the next two in the series. Highly recommended.

Nicole Cook4 Stars Out Of 5Wonderful NovelOctober 13, 2019Nicole CookQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5What a wonderful start to a new series by Denise Hunter and a fabulous new family to fall in love with! I love that Denise Hunter has ventured into writing a dual timeline novel, which still includes the contemporary romance that she is known for.
Readers will enjoy the romance and the intrigue in the story as innkeeper Molly Bennett and Bluebell Inn guest Adam Bradford begin a quest to find the recipient of an old letter found in the walls of the inn. This was such an enjoyable book, and I can't wait to read the next book in the series!

DianFlowW. Columbia, SCAge: 55-65Gender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5Lake Season!October 8, 2019DianFlowW. Columbia, SCAge: 55-65Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I've heard readers say they will give a book one or two chapters and if not interested it will get put aside. However, one can't do that with a Denise Hunter novel! A few chapters in I simply thought this book was about a shallow, immature, fangirling heroine obsessing over her favorite male author. But loving Hunter's books as I do, I kept on reading and found out just how very wrong I was.
Lake Season is an absolutely delightful read -- one that will scatter your battered emotions all over the page with laughing-out-loud moments, a dual timeline with two angst-filled romances, heartbreaking, ugly cry scenes, and very likeable characters. Once again Ms. Hunter exhibits her expertise as an author by penning a unique, witty, multifaceted story with as many layers as an onion!
Guaranteed to keep the reader madly flipping those pages to discover the secrets contained in an old letter and the slim possibility of a HEA after a deceit is revealed -- Lake Season is definitely one not to be missed!
