Sweet Lake, the heartwarming novel by bestselling novelist Christine Nolfi, published by the Lake Union imprint of Amazon Publishing.Although the February 28th release of Sweet Lake is still a month away, there are reasons galore to begin the celebration early. This is my first traditionally-published novel (thank you, Lake Union) and the early reviews are heartening:

“Sweet Lake is an enchanting story full of lovable characters.” —Redbook

“In this uplifting and charming story, each room of the inn is filled with friendship, forgiveness and love.” —Kirkus Reviews

“[Sweet Lake] has such a charming small-town vibe and endearing characters that readers will find themselves falling in love with quirky Sweet Lake and hoping for a series. Perfect for fans of Debbie Macomber or Nora Roberts’ romances.” —Booklist

Craving a literary trifecta of romance, small town drama and soul searching? That’s exactly what you’ll find in Linnie Wayfair’s life as she tries to restore an inn in Sweet Lake, Ohio to glory —  all while navigating affairs of the heart. This is the literary answer to Gilmore Girls withdrawals, and we don’t give that compliment lightly. —Marina Kendrick, Your Tango 

This is the first book in my new series, and I hope readers will enjoy the poignant and sometimes hilarious struggles of Linnie Wayfair as she struggles to wrest control of her family’s inn, a historic Ohio landmark, from her eccentric, filmmaker brother. Look for the second book, The Comfort of Secrets, in July.

To enter the contest:

Simply leave your name in a comment field below this post. I’ll randomly select TWO winners; each will receive the paperback of Sweet Lake on February 28th or shortly thereafter (depending on where you live). For winners in the US or Canada: you’ll receive an autographed copy of the book. For international winners: you’ll receive a copy of the book shipped from Amazon. In February I’ll notify both winners via email.

This contest will close to entrants at midnight EST on Sunday, February 12th. To enter, please leave your name in a comment below. And thank you for entering!

    I enjoy reading books that are filled with characters I like. It is always hard for me to read a book populated by people who are unkind. And although I know it is a generalization, most of the time small town stories have nicer people. I live in a large city but remember small town life.

    • Christine Nolfi on January 23, 2017 at 4:13 pm

      Annette, rest assured–the characters in Sweet Lake are nice. They’re also funny, silly–and, at times, they’ll bring a tear to your eye.

      Thank you for entering.
