About the book:
They swear they’re not right for each other but the matchmakers of Highland Falls are out to prove them wrong.
Elliana MacLeod has come home to whip the Mirror Lake Inn into tip-top shape, the only way to prevent her mother from selling the beloved family business. In between watching over mischievous, cigar-sneaking Grandpa Joe and trying to help Highland Falls win the Most Romantic Small Town in America contest, Elliana’s plate isn’t just full, it’s overflowing. She can’t refuse Nathan Black’s offer to fix up the inn, even if the gorgeous law enforcement officer has made it abundantly clear he considers her a friend, and nothing more.
Nate knows he’s not cut out for long-term relationships or white picket fences, and that’s what Ellie deserves. Yet keeping her at arm’s length is nearly impossible, especially once they’re working—and living—side-by-side. The more time he spends with Ellie, the more he wants, and not just for today but forever. When Ellie’s ex returns to town, has Nate missed his chance with the woman of his dreams?
The Inn on Mirror Lake by Debbie Mason is the fourth book in the contemporary romance Highland Falls series. As with a lot of contemporary romance series the setting is the common theme in the Highland Falls series with the main characters changing in each book. With new characters each novel they all can be read as a standalone or in any order if choosing to do so.
The residents of Highland Falls are going all out trying to win the Most Romantic Small Town in America contest. Elliana MacLeod has agreed to pitch in and renovate her Grandpa Joe’s family Inn all the while trying to stop her mother from selling it out from under Grandpa Joe.
Nathan Black is a law enforcement officer who is briefly staying at the inn that Ellie has always had a crush on but freely admits he is not the relationship type. Nate has agreed to help out with the work at the inn while he is there and Ellie is doing her best to forget about any type of relationship with him but it’s certainly not easy with the attraction between them.
First, I must admit I have never read any of the other books in the Highland Falls series so when I say they read well as a standalone I know that first hand. I have however read Debbie Mason before so I wasn’t surprised to find myself falling easily into The Inn on Mirror Lake and loving the characters and setting. There was a lot going on in the story which only made the pages turn faster and after finishing this fourth book in the series I’d love to go back to the others or read any more coming to the series.
I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley.
