Review ~ The Lady of the Lakes by Josi S Kilpack

One is his first love.
The other is his best love.
Which will be Walter’s true love?

Walter Scott has three passions: Scotland, poetry, and Mina Stuart. Though she is young and they are from different stations in society, Walter is certain their love is meant to be. For years, he has courted her through love letters. She is the sunshine of his soul.

Though Mina shares Walter’s love of literature and romantic temperament, it’s hard for her to know if she truly loves him or if she has only been dazzled by his flattery. When she meets the handsome and charming William Forbes, her heart is challenged. Who will she choose?

But as every poet knows, “the course of true love never did run smooth,” and on a windy morning in the lake country, Walter meets Charlotte.

At twenty-six, Charlotte Carpenter believes she will never find love. After all, she is a Catholic-born Frenchwoman living in London with a family history shadowed by scandal. Though quiet, practical, and determined to live a life of independence, her heart longs for someone to love her and a place to call home.

Passion and promises collide as Walter, Mina, and Charlotte must each decide the course for their futures. What are they each willing to risk to find love and be loved in return?

Chellz Review~
I actually won this book at a Deseret Book Lady's night drawing.  My mother-in-law was a huge fan of Ms Kilpack's The Sadie Hoffmiller Culinary Mystery Series.  Previously I had read one of her books from the mystery series but I was not a devoted follower like my mother-in-law.  

I enjoyed the story, The Lady of the Lakes.  This is a historical romance based on the true story of Sir Walter Scott.  I found myself eager to return to the story to find out if love at first sight would mean that Walter was going to marry Mina.  I did not go through Ms Kilpack's notes of what was fact and what was her creative story telling.  I loved this book and recommend that if you need a good summer read that you add this to your list.
