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.
