Having read all Georgia Beers’ novels I always get excited when a new release is imminent. You know without doubt you are going to meet well-developed characters and enjoy their growing friendship, affection and eventually love.
Cassie Prescott has always lived in Lake Henry. Set in the Adirondacks, the mountains of upstate New York, Cassie enjoys the changing of the seasons and couldn’t picture living anywhere more beautiful. Her friends and family surround her every day and she feels loved and part of the community.
Emerson Rosberg is returning to Lake Henry for her mother’s funeral. After a tragic skiing accident as a teenager Emerson ran as far away from Lake Henry and her family as she could get. L.A has been her home ever since. The last time she had visited her mother was 5 years ago and Emerson has had to deal with that guilty knowledge from the moment she had received news about her mother’s death.
Cassie and Emerson strike up an unexpected friendship, each having regrets and recovering from bad choices. The more time they spend together, the more each one begins to influence the other. The reader can’t help but be drawn to the characters. Each with their own weaknesses, fragility and foibles.
Ms Beers paints a picture with a beautiful backdrop, where the spectacular colours of Fall dance along the pages and the crisp clear air surrounds you. Add to that two women who’s character development is so magnificent that you can picture yourself having them both as a friends and you have a masterpiece in romance.
Some authors have a gift of writing strong, powerful and stunning characters that stay with us long after the final page is read, Ms Beers is one of those authors.
