MY REVIEW OF “THE SEASON OF SILVER LININGS” BY CHRISTINE NOLFI, Lake Union Publishing, Publishing July 2018
“The Season of Silver Linings” by Christine Nolfi is an entertaining, enjoyable, charming and delightful novel. This is the third book in the Sweet Lake Series and although I suggest you read the other novels , this can be a stand-alone. I love the way that Christine Nolfi writes about diversity and uses vivid descriptions of the landscape and colorful cast of characters. The Genres for this story are Fiction, Women’s Fiction, Romance and Suspense. The story mostly takes place in the Wayfair Inn in Sweet Lake. The timeline of the story is in the present and goes to the past only when it pertains to the events or characters in the story.
Christine Nolfi describes her diverse and colorful cast of characters as mostly likable, quirky, and fun-loving. Some characters are more complex. I love the Sirens, a group of older women that have been in all three novels. In this novel, Jada is the only single one of the trio of co-owners of The Wayfair Inn. Cat is married, and Linny is a nervous bride to be.
Jada is an amazing pastry chef, and has the added responsibility of running the Inn, with all the festivities going on. Several of the Sirens have had the same dream about Jada, and it looks like Jada will have to deal with the past, to enjoy her present life. Janie has also taken on the responsibility of helping Philip Kettering and his adorable, yet precocious 6-year-old daughter Fancy.
One of the guests is showing an unusual interest in Jada, and seems to be looking for information. Can Jada move on from the past and find her own happiness?
I appreciate the way the author mentions the importance of family, friends, kindness, communication, love and hope. I recommend this novel to readers that enjoy Women’s Fiction. I received an ARC from NetGalley to read and review.
