Aloha to Kari Lee Harmon and AMBER, Book 1 in Lake House Treasures


Oh, I'd like to stay in this lake house!  Kari Lee Harmon is celebrating the release of AMBER, Book 1 in her new Lake House Treasures series ...

In this heartwarming new women's fiction series, quiet and shy cook, Amber Scott, gets some shocking news when she receives a letter after her thirtieth birthday from the father she never knew. He’s dying and is leaving everything to her and the half-sisters she’s never met. His only stipulation is that they all spend the summer together at his house on Skaneateles Lake. With a mother who loved drugs more than her own daughter and an ex-husband who loved booze and abusing his wife, Amber spent her life feeling unloved as she took care of others and let people walk all over her. Needing the escape, she agrees to her father’s terms, having no idea the things she will learn about them all, including herself. Once there, she meets the hard working, gentle groundskeeper who slowly helps to heal Amber's heart by taking care of her and loving her above all else. But will she find the courage to open her heart to her sisters and the father who started it all?

  1. Hey everyone, I'm so excited about this new series. I hope you all enjoy it. Good luck!

  2. Looks like a great new series as well. I do not go to lakes a lot.

  3. thanks for a fun post and congrats to Kari on the new release! I like sitting on the dock and watching the ducks ;)

  4. I can't even remember the last time I was at a lake, so no favorites.

  5. I enjoy the lakes in the Eastern Sierras of CA. One of my favorites has the great name of "Convict Lake." They have rental cabins and are pet friendly so we were able to stay there with our dog.

  6. The photo of the lake house reminds me of the mansion I saw at Lake George in NYS. It's about 1/4 mile from Lake George Village on the bus route. A 3 story red brick... I'd kill to own it.

  7. I love lakes! And thanks guys, you're the best. Good luck all :)

  8. I just went on a day trip today and one of the things we did was take a pontoon ride on a man made lake in Ohio - it was lovely.

  9. My hubby's family has a large cottage on a lake in northern Michigan about an hour south of the Mackinac Bridge. I love going there. The fishing is good and you can listen to the loon calls. So peaceful.
