A random connection sends two strangers on a daylong adventure where they make a promise one keeps and the other breaks, with life-changing effects, in this breathtaking new novel from the New York Times bestselling author of Every Summer After.
Fern Brookbanks has wasted far too much of her adult life thinking about Will Baxter. She spent just twenty-four hours in her early twenties with the aggravatingly attractive, idealistic artist, a chance encounter that spiraled into a daylong adventure in the city. The timing was wrong, but their connection was undeniable: they shared every secret, every dream, and made a pact to meet one year later. Fern showed up. Will didn’t.
At thirty-two, Fern’s life doesn’t look at all how she once imagined it would. Instead of living in the city, Fern’s back home, running her mother’s lakeside resort—something she vowed never to do. The place is in disarray, her ex-boyfriend’s the manager, and Fern doesn’t know where to begin.
She needs a plan—a lifeline. To her surprise, it comes in the form of Will, who arrives nine years too late, with a suitcase in tow and an offer to help on his lips. Will may be the only person who understands what Fern’s going through. But how could she possibly trust this expensive-suit wearing mirage who seems nothing like the young man she met all those years ago. Will is hiding something, and Fern’s not sure she wants to know what it is.
But ten years ago, Will Baxter rescued Fern. Can she do the same for him?
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Take a delightful journey to a charming lakefront resort in Carley Fortune’s summer romance. Fern Brookbanks never planned on running the family resort in Ontario’s cottage country, but when her mom dies tragically in a car accident, her life in the city is upended completely. Returning to Brookbanks Resort, with its gorgeous views and colorful characters (including her ex-boyfriend Jamie, the resort manager), Fern is thrown for an even bigger loop when her unforgettable fling from a decade ago—the tall, brooding, and incredibly handsome Will Baxter—shows up at the front desk. Fern and Will’s smoldering chemistry and slow-burning romance had us cheering for them one minute and blushing for them the next. A.J. Bridel’s soothing, confident narration captures the essence of their consuming (and confusing) emotions. If you’re looking for an audiobook with plenty of warmth—and some serious heat—look no further than Meet Me at the Lake.
This book is terrible and not worth time but good if plan on eating time
