 “The Cottage at Firefly Lake” by Jen Gilroy is such an enjoyable, and delightful read! The timeline of the story is in the present with references to the past only when it relates to the characters or events. The Genres for this novel are Fiction, Women’s Fiction, and Romance. The author describes the cottages, the town , the people and the lake, and I feel like taking a drive just to vacation and relax by the water.
Jen Gilroy’s descriptions of her characters  remind me of people that could live next door, or in my community. Some of the characters are complex and complicated, but they feel so real. Characters that make mistakes, have secrets, and work hard to get to their goals in life. In the blurb to the story it states,” Some mistakes can never be fixed and some secrets never forgiven…..but some loves can never be forgotten.”
Charlotte Gibbs and her sister Mia and her nieces come back to Firefly Lake to sell the cottage and land that has been in their family for years. Charlotte is a successful journalist, that has provided stories from around the world, many in war zones. The Gibbs family has owned the cottage for many years, and every summer would come out to enjoy living in the cottage and the lake.
Sean Carmichael  and his twin brother build boats, and have a family marina. Sean is divorced, and hopes his teenage son will one day take over the business.
Charlotte and Sean had been very close for many years, and  Charlotte left breaking things off suddenly with Sean. and without an explanation.
If the Gibbs sell the cottage and land, it could create a big problem for Sean and the rest of the community. Not only that, has Sean ever gotten over Charlie??
I love the way the author describes family, friends, loyalty, love, and hope.
I highly recommend this novel to those readers who  enjoy reading Women’s fiction, and Romantic Novels. I can’t wait to read Jen Gilroy’s next book! Happy Reading!!!
