Meet Me at the Lake

Meet Me at the Lake

Fern and Will met ten years ago and spent one day together, talking and touring Toronto. They were both in relationships at the time but felt a connection. Nothing happened and they didn't stay in touch, but they decided to meet in one year, at Fern's family's lake resort, to check in on one another. Will didn't show up, and Fern never stopped thinking of him.

Now she's back at the resort after her mother's death, trying to decide what to do with the place, when Will shows up. He had agreed to consult with her mother, and stays on to help Fern. He seems changed, but as she gets to know him, she realizes he's the same guy she fell for--and he seems to feel the same. But something is holding him back, and Fern knows Will needs her--if he'll let her in.

This had flavors of some of my old favorite movies: Dirty Dancing and Before Sunrise. The setting is incredible--romantic and nostalgic. The 10-year flame they both held after one meeting felt a little unrealistic, but it was sweet and can be fun to think about a what-if for some of those chance encounters that become part of our pasts.

Publisher’s Description

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 Toronto. 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 Muskoka 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?
