Nona Conrad has been making it through "by the hardest." Each day is a struggle - to go on after her parents' sudden death, to win her rightful inheritance from her untrustworthy half-brother, and to raise her high-spirited younger sister. Hired to manage a fishing camp deep in the Arkansas woods, the strong-willed redhead is eager to settle down - until she clashes with the camp's new owner. Simon Wright persistently dogs Nona's steps and is instantly drawn to her. But is he an ally or a charmer with his own agenda? While Nona decides, someone driven by greed will do anything to find out what she knows - and soon Nona and Simon will have nowhere to run.
Ever since meeting Simon Wright, Nona has wanted to wring his neck. He does everything in his power to annoy her while being totally charming to her sister and friend. Little does Nona know, Simon is there to watch over her no matter what.
Simon loves to annoy Nona. He can't help but love to see the sparks coming from his favorite red head. Simon knows that the secrets he's keeping from Nona could destroy any happiness he seeks to find with her. But that is a chance he's willing to take.
ON TALL PINE LAKE is Dorothy Garlock's 50th book. She is amazing many a fan over there years and from the looks if this book, she's not stopping anytime soon.
This is a definitely page turner with suspense and romance all mixed in. You won't know whether to smack some sense into Nona and Simon or want them to kiss and make up. These two sure are memorable characters brought to life by the wonder author, Dorothy Garlock.
I am ashamed to say this is the first time reading a book by Dorothy Garlock. Won't be making that mistake again. Fans will enjoy ON TALL PINE LAKE all the way to the end. Its definitely a great way to spend a weekend.
I give this a rating of 5 Stars.
