It’s been a while since I’ve sent out a blog but I wanted to share this news with you and also have it on my website.
Barbara Josselsohn Releases Second Book of the Lake Summers Series, The Bluebell Girls
SCARSDALE, NY (September 25, 2020) – Acclaimed author Barbara Josselsohn today released the second book of the Lake Summers series, The Bluebell Girls. Her third novel to-date, Barbara’s newest tale is a story of self-discovery, familial bonding, and the rekindling of a former spark. The novel follows three generations of women retelling personal stories of long-lost loves while uncovering the beautiful history of the town of Lake Summers, nestled in the Adirondack Mountains.
After a recent divorce, protagonist Jenna returns full time to her native town of Lake Summers from her life outside of Manhattan to help heal her mother, Sweet, whose health is failing, and better support her daughter, Sophie, who is acclimating to major changes in her own life. When she reconnects with Sweet’s next-door neighbor Troy, recognizing him instantly as the boy with whom she shared her first kiss, secrets, and romance resurface. Now, Jenna must determine whether she’s ready to settle down in Lake Summers for good.
Readers are already giving The Bluebell Girls high praise. Five-star reviewers on Goodreads rave that the novel is “a charming page-turner” and “a well written, enjoyable story with a blend of heartbreaking and heartwarming moments, of second chances, romance, and finding harmony in complicated family relationships.”
The Bluebell Girls gives readers the chance to return to the small town and characters they fell in love with during The Lilac House, Barbara’s second novel, and first in the Lake Summers Series. Published in March, The Lilac House is an uplifting summer romance that tells the story of Anna Harris’ newly found independence following a personal loss, a devastating disclosure, and a daring new romance that reinvigorates her love for her summer escape, Lilac House.
In addition to publishing two novels during a pandemic, Barbara recently re-signed with her publisher Bookouture and will publish two more heartwarming and feel-good romance novels set in the same charming, fictional town of Lake Summers in 2021.
“I am so thankful to have the opportunity to bring readers The Bluebell Girls and tell stories about powerful women discovering their identity and navigating the next chapter of their lives which I believe is such an important message, especially now,” said Barbara Josselsohn. “I am beyond thrilled to continue the Lake Summers series with two more books in 2021 and can’t wait to share the next adventures that take place in the wonderful town of Lake Summers, which has become a second home to me.”
The Bluebell Girls was published by Bookouture, an imprint of Hachette U.K. Readers can now purchase the novel in three formats in paperback or eBook from Amazon or from select retailers.
