One woman must keep her past—and her heart—hidden, but the man next door is just as determined to bring it to light in the first book in a new small-town series from USA Today bestselling author Annie Rains.
A new series to love!
As much as I was saddened by the end of the Sweetwater Springs series, I’m just as excited to start my journey into the new Somerset Lake series. It’s extra special when there’s the added connection of characters that connect each series.
Trisha and Petey are so very sweet and easy to cheer for, especially considering the hard times they both suffered back in their home town. Somerset Lake seems to be the perfect place to start over with a clean slate. Jake, the handsome neighbor and son of Trisha’s boss, Vi, certainly doesn’t hurt in both the scenery and good guy departments. Even as Jake discovers the secret Trisha has been keeping, he continues to put those nice guy skills to work by showing them both what their new small town home has to offer, and helping Trisha with repairs to the cottages that she is property manager of. Of course, sparks fly, those secrets are discovered by others and misunderstandings take place.
But it’s all guided by the pen of Annie Rains, so it’ll all work out, with a heartfelt and sweetly written HEA. Her easy and straightforward descriptions help the reader picture a row of pastel colored cottages along the lakes edge, the loyal face of Jake’s dog Bailey, and the mischief in a seven-year-old’s eyes. Makes you want to take a Sunday morning drive to find that little town.
I just know that Somerset Lake will continue to feel more like home with every story written!
