To be honest, I would recommend reading the novella at the end first, and then the longer story in the beginning. Lake Haven Beginning takes place before Summer at Lake Haven. I do prefer to read stories in chronological order. Also, the novella at the end sets the stage for the full-length story. If you get this Kindle version, you don't need to get Lake Haven Beginning separately, in my opinion.
I haven't read a Haven Point story in a while, but these 2 hit many of my favorite qualities in a story. There is a moderate pace and a hopeful tone. The storyline is character oriented with no steam. The characters are vibrant and endearing, including kids and dogs. You just want them to find a way to their happy ending so badly! I would have loved to have more of Gemma and Josh's story who are the main characters in the novella. But it was still a great read. If this sounds good to you, get this and sit down for a sweet and satisfying read. Enjoy!
