Publisher's Summary

The Lake

At 17, Layla Weston is already starting over. Having lost both her parents and grandparents, and with nowhere else to go, Layla is moving from Florida to a small town in North Carolina to live with the only family she has left: her estranged uncle and aunt.

The last five years of Layla's life were spent appeasing her less-than-loving grandmother, followed by being her grandfather's caretaker. Growing old before her time, Layla lost her identity. Now she must learn how to allow herself to be the one cared for and loved.

Life takes an unexpected turn when Layla meets Will Meyer. His breathtaking good looks are enough to catch her eye, but his sincerity and passion are everything she needs to find the strength and confidence she lost - and lead her into love.

When tragedy once again strikes Layla's life, her hope is all but completely crushed. Through it all, Layla learns what it means to truly love and be loved.

Troubled Waters

College life for Layla Weston isn't starting the way she'd intended. She's revisiting the plans she once had to be the reclusive girl she wanted to be at Heyward Prep, and Layla is more than confident in her ability to succeed this time. After all, she's got a whole new bag of secrets to keep.

Still reeling from Will's disappearance, Layla is doing her best to adjust to life back in Florida. She continues to hold out hope, confident she was meant to find Will's ring for a reason.

Just as Layla is starting to accept that she must keep moving forward, secrets from the past threaten Layla and her family. As Luke and Claire join with Layla to protect their family, Layla discovers that her uncle may not be the man she thought he was - and that there's more to Will's disappearance than she ever could have imagined.

Safe Harbor

Layla Weston was supposed to be planning her wedding, not waiting for her fiancé's father to die.

As Luke prepares to defend Holly for the shooting of Gregory Meyer, Layla and her family weigh the possibility of being able to return home to North Carolina. Only Layla isn't quite sure that's what she wants.

Will and Layla are faced with a new set of challenges for their future - including the status of their upcoming wedding. And when new revelations about his father come to light, Will finds himself questioning his own destiny as a man. With Layla's help, he must learn that his identity is not determined by his DNA.

Now that they are on the brink of their happily-ever-after, will Layla and Will get everything they dreamed of? Or will their happiness continue to be just out of reach?

    Anna Lisa Grant, does not dissapoint! I could not stop listening! Keeps you on your toes, and intrigues you from start to finish! The emotional rollercoaster you experience leaves you with a hangover you've never experienced before!

    Who was the most memorable character of The Complete Lake Series and why?

    AnnaLisa Grant is an amazing person and author. Very genuine and caring! She is an author favorite of mine and I will buy any of her books without a second thought. This is my first listen to the audible version of her books and I really enjoyed it. I own several of her paperbacks and she's signed them too. LOVE her!!

    If you could sum up The Complete Lake Series in three words, what would they be?

    Love, surprises, family


    Any additional comments?

    The Lake series is a great romance book with plenty of twists and surprises along the way. I enjoyed watching Layla grow and become a normal teenage girl and then into the woman she was set to become.

    Layla and Will are now one of my top favorite couples.

    "Just buy the entire set!!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Complete Lake Series to be better than the print version?

    I had already read the series but this is a great addition. You may want to download it and do the whisper sync so you can switch back and forth. I listened to it and I loved it.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Complete Lake Series?

    I had already read the series but I don't think that I read the 4th book. The series still moved me even though I had already read it.


    Have you listened to any of Em Eldridge’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I am not sure but she did an excellent job with this series.


    If you could rename The Complete Lake Series, what would you call it?

    I would never rename this series because The Lake series brings the series back full circle.


    Any additional comments?

    Long but well worth the listen.

    "Teenage love success story"

    I'm 38 and I enjoyed this series, but I will say it would probably be better suited to a younger generation. It's perfect for a teenage girl, telling a romance story without having a lot of sex talk and showing an example of a couple who waited until the wedding night. I thought the beginning was a bit too storybook at times despite their complications. Her first boyfriend, first kiss, first everything being her one true perfect love is a bit hard to swallow at times and this is coming from a woman who met her husband at 15 and has been married for almost 20 years. She also came off very selfish to me at times in the beginning. But, I got too into the story to give it up. The 2nd and 3rd books were much better for me and I really enjoyed the progression in those stages. The last one gets a mixed review. It was an enjoyable little after story but the way the narrator read that one was totally different and she made Layla sound like a complete ditz. That ruined it a bit for me.

    "Overall 2 stars"
    What would have made The Complete Lake Series better?

    The main character, Layla is quite annoying to me because she does not have any interests, passions or life goals. The story would have been better if Layla would have had something to her besides just existing and being in love.
    There needed to be more to Will and Layla's DEEP LOVE for each other. It (their love) happened far too quick and there was no real reason why they fell head over hills for each other. This story would have been better had the two had reasons /qualities about the other that sparked a flame and drew them together.


    What was most disappointing about AnnaLisa Grant’s story?

    The character Layla is weak. All characters in the book seem to hold Layla high upon a pedestal and give her constant praise.


    What about Em Eldridge’s performance did you like?

    She has a good voice.


    What character would you cut from The Complete Lake Series?

    I would not cut any characters from the story. The story does have some interesting twists and all the characters help build the story.

    "Great Narrator"
    Where does The Complete Lake Series rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Middle of the road. I truly enjoyed Em Eldridge (Narrator); she does a great job of bringing each character to life.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Complete Lake Series?

    Not sure I can say that without spoilers. The dock moments are always memorable though.


    Which character – as performed by Em Eldridge – was your favorite?

    Tyler was by far my favorite character, even with his limited appearances.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    It was far too long to consider in one sitting, but I listened as often as I could until it was complete.


    Any additional comments?

    It is a story about loss, greed, selfishness and finding love and keeping it regardless of the circumstances. I enjoyed the story but I am a bit conflicted about writing the review. The plot was interesting but I felt like it was sometimes predictable and rushed. I wanted to root for the characters and at the same time I wanted to scream at them.

    This is my first Em Eldridge books and I loved it. I will certainly read more of her books


    If you could rename The Complete Lake Series, what would you call it?

    I don't think i would rename it


    Any additional comments?



    Will and Layla story was a roller coaster of a ride. They went through so much together and separate at such a young age. I loved watching them grow into the people they now are. With all the ups and downs they made it in the end with the help of family and friends.

    I also loved how family didn't mean a mom and a dad it could be a Aunt and a Uncle.

    what an amazing story

    "should be named how many times can you write Will"
    You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    the story line was could have been very interesting but barely touched on, 75% of the time was spent describing feelings for Will how Will feels love for Will it was extremely irritating, the Will character had no substance others were so much more interesting but either killed off or disppeared up for stupid reasons
