Alex Nolan is as bitter and cynical as they come. One of three Nolan brothers who call Friday Harbor home, he's nothing like Sam or Mark. They actually believe in love; they think the risk of pain is worth the chance of happiness. But Alex battles his demons with the help of a whiskey bottle, and he lives in his own private hell. And then a ghost shows up. Only Alex can see him. Has Alex finally crossed over the threshold to insanity?

Zoë Hoffman is as gentle and romantic as they come. When she meets the startlingly gorgeous Alex Nolan, all her instincts tell her to run. Even Alex tells her to run. But something in him calls to Zoë, and she forces him to take a look at his life with a clear eye and to open his mind to the possibility that love isn't for the foolish.

The ghost has been existing in the half-light of this world for decades. He doesn't know who he is, or why he is stuck in the Nolans' Victorian house. All he knows is that he loved a girl once. And Alex and Zoë hold the key to unlocking a mystery that keeps him trapped here.

Zoë and Alex are oil and water, fire and ice, sunshine and shadow. But sometimes it takes only a glimmer of light to chase away the dark, and sometimes love can reach beyond time, space, and reason to take hold of hearts that yearn for it....

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mum | 2/3/2014

    " A ghost, mouth-watering descriptions of food, and an alcoholic. Made for an enjoyable read asking as you did not look too closely at what was swept under the rug! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer Estep | 1/26/2014

    " An emotional contemporary romance that features a ghost and a touch of magical realism. This is the third book in Kleypas's Friday Harbor series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sidney | 1/24/2014

    " One of my new favorite authors! This book was magical to me, from the thorough descriptions she gives of feelings, to the recipes Zoe is cooking. This author has a way with words that just draws you in. Also I love that while there is a romance upfront there is also one going on in the background with a little mystery. Just bought two more of her books and I plan on buying many more. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heidi | 1/21/2014

    " I am sad to give this only three stars, but I am grading it on my affinity for the first book in this series. It was really good and I enjoyed it. I could have really done without the whole ghost thing in this book even though I like a little bit of paranormal activity shall we say. Anyways, the main characters stories were good if a little underdeveloped. I felt the ghost was better developed than Alex's character and it was kind of like BOOM all of a sudden they are in mad passionate love with each other and nothing matters. Maybe I'm a skeptic, and maybe my expecations were just a little too high "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeanatte | 1/16/2014

    " Overall, a good read. I just love Lisa Kleypas's writing style no matter what she writes. The characters were likable and the ending was really good. I liked how Kleypas put in the story with Emma and Tom because it made the plot more interesting. But it wasn't my favorite romance novel and the middle did get boring at times. Sometimes I felt that the romance was forced and I didn't really feel a deep connection between the main characters, which is something I always look for when reading romance novels. However, overall this was a good chicklit and it helped ease my boredom and make the time pass by while I was on the bus. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lynn | 1/12/2014

    " I just finished an ARC of this book that I received for free. I thought Dream Lake was another great installment in the Friday Harbor series. Ms. Kleypas knows how to create characters that draw you into a memorable story. I will hold off a further detailed review until closer to the release date. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Salmacis | 7/6/2013

    " A moving and tender story. An unusual but beautiful. The sophisticated, yet melancholy storytelling that is not easily forgotten, reminds me of Kate Walbert's ''The gardens of Kyoto'' . "

    " I very much enjoyed reading Dream Lake. Since we've been reading about Alex for 2 books now I really wanted to know his story. Pairing him up with Zoe was a match made in heaven. "

    " After a second try I managed to finish it with a lot of skimming. The story was just too plain for me, the characters not very exciting. The secondary story was the only good part. "
