About the Book:

She can’t change what’s come before. But letting go could bring healing—and the rare love that comes once in a lifetime.

When Ohio pastry chef Jada Brooks and her two best friends restored the glorious Wayfair Inn, it was a boon to Sweet Lake—and to their own lives. Now Linnie and Cat are focused on private matters: one engaged, the other swept up in newlywed bliss. Jada has also begun looking to the future by dating widower Philip Kettering and forging a sudden, sweet bond with his six-year-old daughter.

But the past isn’t finished with Jada. When a curious guest checks into the Wayfair, her delving questions stir Jada’s guilt about the heartbreaking events that scarred the town seven years ago. The risks Jada must take by revealing the truth will test every assumption she’s made about the meaning of family and the magic of enduring love.

My Thoughts:

The Season of Silver Linings is Jada’s story. She and her two dearest friends, Linnie and Cat, restored an inn in the quaint town of Sweet Lake. 

Now that her friends are occupied with love interests, Jada decides it’s her turn, too, and she finds love with a widower, Philip Kettering. She also falls for his young daughter, Fancy. 

The past enters the present when a curious guest checked into the inn. This is somehow connected to something that happened several years ago, and Jada knows the truth. Will Jada find love and happiness?

Jada is a lovely friend and an endearing character. The sirens return, and of course they are always fun. If you haven’t met them, they are a group of women who live in Sweet Lake who meddle a bit and come on pretty strong, but they always mean well! 

I enjoyed the mystery and it surprised me a little in the end. I think you can read Jada’s story without having read Cat and Linnie’s, but then you’d also be missing out on the charm of the whole series, and that is simply not to be missed.

The Season of Silver Linings pulls on all your emotions. There are sweet moments, emotional, tearful ones, and then of course the laughter! The setting of Sweet Lake is a character unto itself, and I hope it will be revisited in future books by Nolfi! I’m already excited because she has a new book coming out this summer!

About the Author:

Some writers are gifted with an unusual life and I’m certainly one of those. I’ve lived in Ohio, Virginia, California, Utah and now South Carolina. In college I was featured on the front page of the Houston Post for a lark that erased all my debt. I met my four adopted children for the first time in the sweltering heat of the tropics. I helped build several companies and was lucky enough to earn a living doing what I love best–writing–in a PR firm I owned.

In 2004 I made the wisest and most irrational decision of my life–I began writing fiction full-time. All those years of hard work pay off daily in sweet notes and comments by readers. Please continue the mail, tweets and comments on FaceBook, GoodReads and other sites. I cherish your support and love chatting with readers.
