A wonderful story. I have never written a review on a book before but this book touched my heart so I had to write about it. I love Lisa's books and have pretty much read everything she has published. Once I started it, I couldn't put it down. Lisa can describe emotions better than most writers out there, and because of that she doesn't need to write graphic sex scenes which I get tired of especially after the hoopla of Fifty Shades. This book is romantic and loving. I even liked the ghost and the sub-plot with Zoe's grandmother.

This latest book about the youngest of the Nolan brothers was sweet, endearing, romantic, and whimsical. This storyline actually runs during the same time as Rainshadow Road, which I thouht gave it an interesting perspective.

Lisa Kleypas hits a home run with this book. Loved the first two books but this was absolutely great. Loved the development of the characters, the tie in to family obligations and the references to the other books characters. It gave a nice time line that this story happens at the same time as the other books. It really was intriguing. The story moves quickly and was hard to put down.

I have really enjoyed all of the books in this new series by Lisa Kleypas and Dream Lake is no exception. The book tells the story of the third Nolan brother, Alex, a troubled man who is fast becoming an alcoholic. Alex is recently divorced and his bitterness about life and love makes him an uncomfortable to be around. He is on the brink of losing his business and agrees to take on the job of renovating a cottage for Zoe Hoffman. Zoe is a baker and is friends with Lucy who is the girlfriend of Sam Nolan, Alex’s brother. Zoe is moving into the cottage with her grandmother, Emma, who has recently been diagnosed with dementia. Zoe is instantly attracted to Alex and him to her but he is convinced that he is a bad bet and warns her off. Zoe ignores the warning and finds herself falling for Alex. Zoe has also been divorced and there is a brief side trip about that but it really doesn’t impact the story. Alex is having an interesting time during the renovation. A ghost has become attached to Alex and gives him a lot of unwanted advice about his relationship with Zoe. The ghost has no idea who he is or why he is stuck with Alex. When they get to the cottage, the ghost realizes that he is connected to Emma but is not sure of the circumstances. Alex, in the meantime, decides to quit drinking and discovers himself relying on Zoe and the ghost for support during the tough times. What is interesting about this book is that Alex really is a bad bet in the romance department as his marriage was extremely dysfunctional mostly due to him. Alex is the child of alcoholics and has all of the issues that go with that type of upbringing. Zoe has parental abandonment issues as well but has taken a different path when it comes to relationships, thanks to the loving support she had from Emma. There is a vignette with a family dinner including Zoe’s father that is painful to read. The major message of the book is that it is never a mistake to love someone but it requires strength and even courage to keep the love alive during tough times. All of these books have parts in common and this book also sets up the next one ,which will obviously feature Justine, Zoe’s cousin. It should be a nice wrap up to the series.

I really loved this book and it's characters. I couldn't put it down! It was well written, heartfelt, and fun. I definitely connected with Alex and Zoe. The only thing I thought that was off about the book is the super over the top ending. I felt like it was not true to the character of Alex. But still wonderful nonetheless :)

This is the third book of the Friday Harbor series. I did not like Alex in the other two books. But this is Alex's story of a tragic childhood and the adult he became. I enjoyed his story most of all, and I like this story more than the others. A heartwarming story.

I have become jaded lately after reading so many books that disappoint me a bit, this one has renewed my enthuiasm for the romance genre. Thank you, Lisa! I can honestly say this is the best book I have read in years.

WOW! LOVED IT! Okay, I LOVE Lisa Kleypas! And, I have read every novel I can get my hands on. I don't even really have to read what they are before buying because, I know I will love it. I loved all the previous Friday Harbor books. And, although I did not really like Alex in the other 2 books. I had to give it a try. Reading the back & realizing it was with a ghost was a little weird. Not, that I don't like books with that… I just wasn't use to it with her. The previous one had a little intro to magic & I found it sooo sweet. But, a ghost… Once I started reading, I fell in love with it. And, finally getting into the deep pain that Alex had, makes you love him. What great characters! Wonderful Story! Can't wait to read the next one!

I really loved this 3rd book in the Friday Harbor series. It is filled with so much magic. It has a great love story, even more than first expected. There are some bittersweet moments that Lisa Kleypas handles so beautifully. Definitely a must read.
