From Haywood Smith, the New York Times bestselling author of THE RED HAT CLUB novels comes a pitch perfect story of four sisters who are forced to come together after years of silence

Sisters Dahlia, Iris, Violet, and Rose—all with grown children of their own—have a complicated relationship, so when their grandmother's will requires them to spend the whole summer—without friends or family—"camping in" at her run-down lodge on re mote Lake Clare in order to inherit the valuable land, old rivalries and new understanding emerge, with plenty of laughs along the way.

Desperate to save her Buckhead home from foreclosure after being left in the lurch, recent divorcee Dahlia must complete the summer and sell her share immediately. Practical, even-tempered Violet will be no problem, but Iris has been Dahlia's nemesis since she learned to say, "no" to her big sister. And super-sweet, quirky Garage Sale Queen Rose is so "green" she'd test the patience of a saint.

As tempers flare and old secrets are revealed, four grown women discover that the past is never truly buried, in Haywood Smith's Ladies of the Lake.

    " Really good read. Enjoyed the 'flower'sisters and all the personalities that made up this group of women. Not a 'serious 'book by any means, but a light, take it as it comes, laugh along story. However, the aspect of adult sisters accepting the peculiar dynamics of their relationships forged since birth, is interesting. "

    " Unlike The Queen Bee of Mimosa Branch, I didn't feel like I had to be a post-menopausal southerner to enjoy this book. Ok, so maybe that description applies to the main characters of this book, but it was still laugh-out-loud funny in places, although predictable in others. "

    " A decent book. Quick and easy to read. The end was a bit of a let down though. "

    " library book. Romance is not usually my first genre choice, but Haywood Smith is always delightful. There was enough character development between the sisters that I felt it was a very enjoyable read. It made me laugh, cry and just feel good. "
