About this ebook

They swear they’re not right for each other but the matchmakers of Highland Falls are out to prove them wrong.
 
Elliana MacLeod has come home to whip the Mirror Lake Inn into tip-top shape, the only way to prevent her mother from selling the beloved family business. In between watching over mischievous, cigar-sneaking Grandpa Joe and trying to help Highland Falls win the Most Romantic Small Town in America contest, Elliana’s plate isn’t just full, it’s overflowing. She can’t refuse Nathan Black’s offer to fix up the inn, even if the gorgeous law enforcement officer has made it abundantly clear he considers her a friend, and nothing more.

Nate knows he’s not cut out for long-term relationships or white picket fences, and that’s what Ellie deserves. Yet keeping her at arm’s length is nearly impossible, especially once they’re working—and living—side-by-side. The more time he spends with Ellie, the more he wants, and not just for today but forever. When Ellie’s ex returns to town, has Nate missed his chance with the woman of his dreams?

The Inn on Mirror Lake by Debbie Mason, book four in the Highland Falls series follows Ellie and Nate, their pretend/fake relationship, and the amazing cast of secondary characters that make this an enjoyable fun-filled love story, along with some drama and intrigue. Nathan Black might look like a bad boy but he’s more like a teddy bear, kind and understanding, yet obsessed with seeking justice for a friend he lost in the line of duty. Ellie MacLeod appears soft and delicate but has a backbone of steel, who gave up her career to care for her grandfather and his aging inn, with a secret “gift” she’s struggled her whole life to hide. Together Nate and Ellie fight against her family trying to sell the Inn that has been in her family for generations and put her grandfather in a home. I wanted to be a guest at the Inn if only to watch these two totally opposite, but made for each other, fall in love. With the help of Granny MacLeod, Grandfather Joe, the Judge, and the rest of the town helping her and Nate, will they discover that they can have a life together; as these amazing senior citizens interfere, with their meddling and matchmaking. Just when things are looking positive for them, Nate takes charge of a grieving teen, an old love comes to town, attempting to break Ellie and Nate apart, Ellie’s sister brings a dog for her to look after, and her mother ups her determination in the fight to sell the Inn. However, no matter what comes their way, when they dance to their song, the world comes together. Ms. Mason wrote an enjoyable, amusing, emotional, and heartwarming story that should not be missed. She provided a tale rich with sizzling chemistry, family dynamics, clever banter, lots of laughs, and quirky characters giving Ellie and Nate a chance at love, happiness, and a future together. I highly recommend The Inn on Mirror Lake to other readers. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.

The Inn on Mirror Lake by Debbie Mason is the fourth A Highland Falls Novel. I did not know when I picked up the book that it was part of a series. I quickly discovered that it is best to read A Highland Falls series in order. It was like I came into a movie halfway through it. I felt that I was missing key details. I discovered that Nate and Ellie were introduced in Falling in Love on Willow Creek (Book Three). Characters from the previous books are in this story along with Ellie and Nate’s family members and residents of the town. The author created some great characters. I just love Grandpa Joe, the Judge, and Ryder. Ellie has a special ability which added another dimension to the story. I enjoyed the setting of Highland Falls and the inn at the lake. It sounded like such a peaceful place. The Inn on Mirror Lake is a complex book with varying layers. I loved the humor in the story. The scenes with Ellie and Nate with his sisters are especially amusing. Grandpa Joe and the Judge’s antics also had me chuckling. There is plenty of flirtation and sizzle between Nate and Ellie. The chemistry between the pair is palpable. There are intimate thoughts and scenes in the book. I do want to mention the significant amount of foul language (which I find offensive). I like how the townspeople help Ellie with the Mirror Lake Inn. The various characters from the first three books appear throughout the story. They are worked seamlessly into this tale. There are some serious moments as well. Ellie’s sister, Brianna has an abusive husband. I thought the author handled this delicate subject very well. Ryder is dealing with the loss of his father. He needs guidance, love, and man’s best friend. The ending is charming and will leave readers smiling. The Inn on Mirror Lake is a cute romantic tale with a cigar loving grandpa, meddling matchmakers, a shocking secret, a vigilant judge, protective pooch, a brutal brother-in-law, a frustrating filmmaker, and flirtatious friends.

I love visiting Highland Falls and this was no exception. It starts out with a fake relationship of Ellie and Nate. Nate is known as a bad boy and does not do forever, he is only here to seek justice for friend that was lost in the line of duty. Ellie has a secret gift, that many people don't know about. Nate has joined Ellie in getting the Inn ready to win the Most Romantic Town in America, while her parents are trying to sell the inn. I had a hard time putting this book down, so many emotions with lots of family drama buts also lots of smiles. Loved the older characters, especially Grandpa Joe. Ellie fell in love with Nate from the first kiss, but now to have Nate realize this is his HEA too. This is part of series but can be read as a stand alone.
