Publisher's Summary

After an unscrupulous reporter falsely accuses Boston lounge singer Lily Blake of having an affair with a newly appointed Cardinal, she’s hounded by the press, fired from her job, and robbed of all her public freedom. The humiliation and violation of privacy leaves her no choice but to retreat to her rural hometown of Lake Henry, New Hampshire. In search of refuge, Lily forms an uneasy alliance with John Kipling, a former Boston reporter with trust issues of his own. Now editing Lake Henry’s local newspaper, John cannot ignore Lily’s appeal or her plight—even at the risk of taking on his former colleagues. Rewarding and unforgettable, a stirring novel of hope and redemption, Lake News offers an intimate look at the complex relationship between an enigmatic man and a vulnerable but spirited woman, both struggling to find a new sense of community in a place they once called home.

    Any additional comments?

    First BD novel I have read, good story line, some nice surprises. I enjoyed how she developed the characters, showed a understanding of the complexity of families and how the past can repeat itself in next generations.

    "Good message"

    I think this may have been an older book. I was so appauled at the beginning I had to restart this book several times. The victim in this book, well, I just felt so sorry for her. I think this story has a vital message about the press. Also, I thought the book became very slow toward the ending. It was worth the credit.
