    The Season of Silver Linings, a Sweet Lake Novel by Christine Nolfi is one of her best works yet. That says a lot because the first two books in this series are dynamic. Nolfi works her magic as she brings in one of my favorite groups – the Sweet Lake Sirens. They have and always will hold a special place in my heart. I love their humor, their distinct personalities, their meddling and how they weave the wonderful energies of life into the world of those individuals they view as needing their pa ...more

    I’ve been looking forward to the release of this book after reading the first two Sweet Lake books and LOVING them – this book was worth the wait! Each book focuses on one of the 3 best friends (Linnie, Cat, and Jada) who co-manage the Wayfair Inn. This book focuses on Jada – she is my personal favorite of the 3 women because she is a hardworking and devoted friend and daughter - in fact, I’m not sure Linnie and Cat realized how good of a friend she is as Jada was frequently picking up the slack ...more

    The Season of Silver Linings is the third in a series of novels about the quiet town of Sweet Lake, Ohio. I suppose it's one that you can read as a stand-alone, but it goes much better as part of the series. Jada, who is one of a trio of best friends running the historic Wayfair Inn. There's much history to this Inn (you'll have to read the first two to catch up on that). But there's also a lot of history to Jada and a long-unrequited crush. A stranger comes to the Inn with Jada in her sights. B ...more

    Small town charm, a bit of a mystery, and colorful characters add up to a wonderful book, a perfect beach read! The Season of Silver Linings is the third book in the Sweet Lake series, which centers around the women who run the inn in this lakeside town. Reading this book is like coming home and becoming reacquainted with old friends! This book features Jada, the friend who seems to always be holding down the fort for her friends! It was great fun getting to read her story, as she opens up her h ...more

    Nolfi has a unique way with words that I found both humorous and sincere. This third installment in the bestselling series offers a bit of romance and a hint of suspense. The women known to the Sweet Lake townsfolk as Sirens add elements of intrigue and eccentricity to this cast of charming characters. This is one you won’t want to put down.

    THE SEASON OF SILVER LININGS by Christine Nolfi is the third book in her Sweet Lake series. I thoroughly enjoyed the first two books, so I could not wait to get back to Sweet Lake and the Wayfair Inn for the next part of the story. Most of the characters are ones we grew to know and love from the first two books, but there are a few new characters in the third book. As with the previous books, the story centers on themes of love, family, friendship and loyalty. This time, the story focuses on Ja ...more

    “The Season of Silver Linings” by Christine Nolfi is an entertaining, enjoyable, charming and delightful novel.

    I truly love the women of Sweet Lake, even the quirky Sirens. The Season of Silver Linings is the third book in this fabulous series, with each book mainly focusing on one of the three main characters. Jada, Cat and Linnie are co-owners of the Wayfair Inn and as their lives are intertwined, they share their good times and are there for each other during the trying times. They are such good friends, friends who can say and do anything—nothing is off limits.

    Christine Nolfi is a master storyteller. Great story-line. This third book in the Sweet Lake series is well-written, enjoyable, hard to put down, a romance, mysteries, and of course the Sirens. One has to love the Sirens. I want to be one. I suggest one begins reading this in the morning as you cannot put it down. The reader has suspicions on what is going to happen, but there is also surprises along the way. This might be the best in the series, but hopefully there will be more down the line. I ...more

    I enjoyed this book very much and the author does a great job of catching you up if you have not read books 1 and 2. Reading this book did make we want to go back and read the previous books. Great character development. I give this book 4 out 5 and will definitely look for future books.

    The Season of Silver Linings is the third edition in Christine Nolfi’s Sweet Lake series. Once more, we are treated to the beautiful setting of the Wayfair Inn in Sweet Lake, a small fictional town in southern Ohio. The first book of the series focused on resort owner Linnie Wayfair, while the second one had Wayfair Inn marketing manager Cat Mendoza as the primary focus. This third in the series has co-manager Jada Brooks, organizing wiz and baker extraordinaire, as the focus.

    I have read many of this author's works and have never been disappointed. She writes with such humor and humanity that each of her books bring tears and laughter. This book did not disappoint me!

    "The Season of Silver Linings" is the third in a series. It can be read as a standalone, but you would be missing out on the back story and, while you would catch up eventually, you would miss a lot of the character development.

    This book is the first I've read in this series, but I had no problem jumping in because the author does a good job of quickly covering what you need to know when it's necessary.

    I enjoyed the deep friendship between the 3 main characters and loved The Sirens because they meant well even if sometimes their efforts were annoying or over the top. You have to love a group of women that take others under their wings trying to help them.

    The relationships between everyone is what pulled me in and kept

    I really enjoyed reading the 3rd book in the Sweet Lake Series. The book focuses on Jada, one of the co-owners and the pastry chef at the Wayfair Inn. The story keeps you engaged as there is some mystery or pieces missing that you want to know what happens. This could definitely be read as a stand alone book if you haven't read the first 2. I find it amusing that in this small town there is a group of women called the Sirens who take people under their wings as a responsibility. The book really ...more

    You got to love the Sirens! I think I finally figured out my favorite one is Penelope.
    A must read. I highly recommend this book and the others in the series!

    Wonderful Book! I Really enjoyed The Season of Silver Linings third book. While I have not read the first two books. About an Inn and family and friendships that are intertwined. Then the stranger comes to town... Some mystery is added. All the feelings and memories that are surfacing for Jeda. Secrets and love.

    Loved this continuation of the Sweet Lake Series. The mystery and romance blend together and make the characters come to life. Learning the truth about a long lost friend, finding your soul mate, and. cute little girl, make reading this story an adventure! Always enjoy Christine's story.

    I loved this book! The Sweet Lake series just keeps getting better and better. What made The Season of Silver Linings so good was a stranger that came to the town and the air of mystery surrounding that stranger. Well done! I hope there are more books to come in this series.

    I received an advanced copy of this book and this is my honest review.

    When former Ohioan Christine Nolfi asked this current Ohioan to review her upcoming release, The Season of Silver Linings (A Sweet Lake Novel Book 3), I gladly complied and I’m so happy I did!

    Christine Nolfi’s The Season of Silver Linings (A Sweet Lake Novel Book 3) is captivating! This book may be read as a stand alone but to be understood and enjoyed to the fullest, should be read in order. Nolfi has written a trilogy about three bestto invest in a hotel together. Linnie, Cat and Jada each have a different skill set to use to breathe life back into the dying Wayfair Inn.

    This quote found at the beginning of Book 3 captures the essence of the trilogy. “We grew up here,

    This is the third book in the series, and it took me awhile to figure out what got these three women to this point in their lives. Christine Nolfi did a good job of bringing the reader up to date, but I think jumping in distracted me, since I had not read the previous two books.
    The series features three friends, Jada who apparently is the Alfa dog, Linnie and Cat. They saved this beautiful old inn, and turned it into a successful business, featuring great food as well as lovely accommodations.

    I really enjoyed the third installment of Silver Linings series. The setting is Wayfair Inn which is owned by three good friends, Jada, Cat, and Linnie. This one is about Jada the baker and manager. She is overwhelmed with work at the Inn. They are planning Linnie’s wedding to Daniel who was helping his brother, Phillip with his daughter. Jada is taken by the little girl and it is having feelings for Phillip.
