GOODREADS REVIEW .
“THE COMFORT OF SECRETS by Christine Nolfi is the second book in the “Sweet Lake ” series. This is a delightful and charming story that describes the Wayfair Inn in Ohio and the quirky, complex and complicated characters. Many of the characters are the same as in the first book.
The genres for this story are Women’s Literature, Literature, Romance, and a touch of Mystery. I love the different layers in this story. The timeline is mostly in the present and mostly takes place in Ohio surrounding the Wayfair Inn, which is undergoing major renovations.
Lizzie, Jada, and Cat are all involved in the new and improved Wayfair Inn. Cat has been promoted to the events director. There is enough money to bring in a major advertising company and a friend has offered reduced rates. The friend sends Ryan, a top advertising executive to help put the Wayfair Inn on the map. There will be a big concert and many events. Cat and Ryan seem to have an attraction. Ryan lives with his troubled mother Julia, and takes care of her. There seem to be major secrets in Ryans’s and Julia’s lives.
My favorite characters, “The Sweet Lake Sirens”, an eccentric and quirky group of older women who put sisterhood first, and doing a special secret kindness are quite active in this story. At times some of them non-intentionally causing trouble, and at other times they are helpful and protective. I find that they are amusing and have big hearts.
Christine Nolfi describes family, friends, love, support and hope. I would recommend this enchanting, feel good story highly. I received this ARC from Lake Union Publishing, and Christine Nolfi for my honest review and opinion. Happy Reading.
