Her return brings back wonderful memories, especially of Marc, but also horrible fears from the past.

When fate throws her and Marc together once again, how can they ignore the everlasting love and desire between them? Will Kate stay and face her demons or will the deceit and secrets of the past destroy any future they may have and force her to leave again

(By the Lake, #1 - The McAdams Sisters, #1)

Lakeshore Secrets (By The Lake, #1; The McAdams Sisters, #1)She left her home and family years before, carrying the weight of secrets, a broken heart and a determination to make something of herself in the world. When Kate must return after the death of her grandmother, she harbors sadness, fond memories and the secrets of her past.

Marc only knew that the magic of young love he shared with Kate became a curse, the day she ran, the day she left him, lost and in the dark with a broken heart. Now face to face, the bitterness surfaces and they pick at each other, making verbal snipes and sparring around the truth. They are still in love, they have been denied a past to share, but Kate’s full disclosure may destroy the tentative second chance they are hoping for.

Is there anything better than a GREAT second chance romance with the monsters of the past threatening to destroy everything? Lakeshore Secrets by Shannyn Leah has hit my Hidden Gem pile! Ms. Leah takes a tried and true, swoon worthy romance and gives us characters that have actually matured enough to share the good and the bad, the ugly is a little tougher to handle, but any love worth having isn’t always easy. Filled with characters that go from charming to troubled, the story comes alive with the day to day dramas that we all could face. Kick in the romantic heat and this is near perfection in reading! Well written, detailed, with amazing dialogue and full of side twists, Ms. Leah gave me a wonderful reading experience that left me feeling all squishy inside!
