ABOUT MEET ME AT THE LAKE:
One day, ten years ago, two twenty-something-year-olds met, and life was never the same.
When Fern Brookbanks meets Will Baxter, the last thing she expects is to fall (almost) in love with him over the span of a single day.
So, when they promise to meet up one year later, Fern is eager to see what the future will hold.
Except Will never shows up and Fern is left wondering why…
Ten years later, Fern’s life looks very different than she imagined it would.
Instead of living in the city she loves, she is back home, running her late mother’s beloved lakeside resort.
Reluctantly, she’s forced to confront the decision she’s been afraid to think about: to stay or to sell?
And then one day a very tall, very handsome, very familiar man in an expensive suit shows up at the reception desk.
Will Baxter. What’s even more surprising? He’s here to help with the resort.
As much as Fern wants to resist the man who broke her heart all those years ago, he is the only person who can understand what she is going through.
As she wades through grief and the burden of a resort she has come to resent, Will becomes her lifeline.
But a lot has changed over 10 years. And one of them never showed up…
