Refuge at Pine Lake

By Rose Chandler Johnson

Christian Contemporary Romance

Paperback & ebook, 384 Pages

March 6th 2019 by Chanson Books


Robin Lancaster, a twenty-six-year-old former kindergarten teacher, has her summer and her life all figured out. She’s ready to be on her own, writing and illustrating her children’s stories at her family’s beloved lake house. Once there, she intends to rekindle a romance with Caleb Jackson, the area’s top hunting and fishing guide, and bag him for herself.


Complications arise from the start when Robin finds out her mother has rented the lake house to a man they know nothing about.


Matthew McLaughlin, forty-year-old widowed university professor and author from California, shows up at Pine Lake in crisis. A sabbatical might be his only hope to save much more than his career. He needs a place of refuge. Sharing the lake house with a lighthearted young woman and her dog is the last thing on his mind.


Caleb Jackson has his own plans. He’s used to things going his way, but a man staying in Robin’s house presents unforeseen challenges. When paths unavoidably tangle for these three, hearts are on the line.




My Review:

Matt needs to get over the death of his wife. He rents a lake house to get away from everything. Robin is the daughter of the one renting it to him. She is staying next door. 

Robin is close to where her sister lives. I enjoyed the interaction with the children her sister had. Also, there was a dog in the book that adds a lot to the story. Also loved the character Mr. Charlie that goes fish with Matt. 

I received a complimentary copy of the book from Prism book tours. I was not required to write a positive review. This review is my own opinion.
