"Barbara Freethy has done it again with a great new series, that has the reader packing their bags to move to the town of Whisper Lake!" Robin – Goodreads
Justin Blackwood can't remember a time when he believed in the magic of anything, least of all love. A cynical businessman, who grew up in a broken home, he guards his heart with every breath he takes. His job has taken him all over the world and roots are the last thing he wants...until he meets a beautiful innkeeper in Whisper Lake.
Warm-hearted, free-spirited Lizzie Cole wants it all—the dream job of running her own inn and a man who wants to settle down. Despite a previous romantic setback, she still believes in happily ever after and her perfect soulmate. She just has to find him. While the dark-haired man with the shockingly blue eyes makes her heart beat faster, Justin Blackwood is the last man who should leave her breathless. He's her complete opposite and they don't want the same things.
But when a lunar eclipse throws Whisper Lake into darkness, Lizzie and Justin find themselves struggling to fight the moonlight and a love that could change their lives—if they're willing to take the risk.

Can’t Fight the Moonlight
Another great book in the Whisper Lake series. Sure wish this place was real. I’ve come to love all the family and friends. You get to feel all the various emotions they are going through. I think Whisper Lake did its magic by bringing two workaholics together. Loved it. Barbara Freethy never fails to deliver!

Heartwarming love story!
This was such a beautiful story between Lizzie, the owner of The Firefly Inn at Whisper Lake, and Justin, the owner of a robotics company. Justin has focused all his time and energy on his company, not taking time to enjoy life at all. And that’s just the way he likes it. Until he arrives in Whisper Lake to attend a vow renewal for his grandparents. A slight accident has Justin learning how to slow down and enjoy life. Of course, the sweet, optimistic Inn owner may have something to do with that!
Barbara Freethy has such a wonderful way with words. She transports you to a world filled with true love and lasting friendships. As you read you can’t help but feel like you’re a part of it. The characters in her stories all have such vibrant personalities that you really feel like you know them. This story touched a place in my heart. I found myself rooting for Lizzie and Justin! I can’t wait for the next installment in the Whisper Lake series! While this book is part of a series, it can be read as a standalone.
