Lily’s family left Summer Lake when she went away to college. She tried to make her way in their world, but money and status didn’t mean much to her. After calling off her engagement and giving up her career, Lily’s back at the lake. She’s finally happy. She has a life she loves, and she’s pursuing her passion running the riding stables. There may not be any other kind of passion in her life, but that’s okay, or it would be if it weren’t for Nate. Nate’s her friend. Nate sleeps around. Nate is most definitely not the guy she should want to get passionate with, but, unfortunately, he is.
Nate’s enjoying life in Summer Lake, too. His boss, Pete, may have warned him off the local women, but that’s okay, there are plenty of fresh tourists every weekend to keep him busy. He’d rather get busy with Lily, but that’s a bad idea. She’s his friend. She means more to him than just a quick hookup.
When these two finally do hook up, they’ll have to decide if it’s worth putting their friendship at risk for a relationship that might prove impossible anyway.
The Summer Lake series follows a group of friends from a small lakeside town in the California hills. They have kept in touch over the years and now, in their early thirties, their lives are drawing them back to Summer Lake and to each other.
