My Review:When their parents die in a tragic accident, Molly Bennett and her siblings pull together to fulfill their parents’ dream: turning their historic home back into an inn.
Adam Bradford (a.k.a. bestselling author Nathanial Grey) is a reclusive author with a bad case of writer’s block. Desperate for inspiration as his deadline approaches, he travels to a North Carolina lake town, the setting of his next novel. There he immediately meets his muse, a young innkeeper who fancies herself in love with his alter ego.
When Molly finds an old letter in the walls of her inn she embarks on a mission with Adam to find the star-crossed lovers and bring them the closure they deserve. But the guest she invites along has secrets of his own. Past and present collide as truths are revealed, and Molly and Adam will have to decide if love is worth trusting.
Maybe my expectations were too high for this one but I admit I got both annoyed and bored when Molly mistakenly thought that Adam's best friend was her favorite author ... and that Adam let her keep thinking that! So frustrating and the last 100+ pages of the book could have not existed had he just confessed the truth. The setting was charming and I liked the characters, but it didn't feel too original to me.
