Title: The Lake Trilogy Box Set
Author: AnnaLisa Grant
Release Date: April 20th, 2015

 

 

At 17, Layla
Weston is already starting over. Having lost both her parents and grandparents,
and with nowhere else to go, Layla is moving from Florida to a small town in
North Carolina to live with the only family she has left: her estranged uncle
and aunt.
 

 

The last five years of Layla’s life were spent
appeasing her lessthan-loving grandmother, followed by being her grandfather’s
caretaker. Growing old before her time, Layla lost her identity. Now she must
learn how to allow herself to be the one cared for and loved. 

 

Life takes an unexpected turn when Layla meets
Will Meyer. His breathtaking good looks are enough to catch her eye, but his
sincerity and passion are everything she needs to find the strength and
confidence she lost — and lead her into love. 

 

When tragedy once again strikes Layla’s life,
her hope is all but completely crushed. Through it all, Layla learns what it means
to truly love and be loved.

 

College life for
Layla Weston isn’t starting the way she’d intended. She’s revisiting the plans
she once had to be the reclusive girl she wanted to be at Heyward Prep, and
Layla is more than confident in her ability to succeed this time. After all,
she’s got a whole new bag of secrets to keep.
 

 

Still reeling from Will’s disappearance, Layla
is doing her best to adjust to life back in Florida. She continues to hold out
hope, confident she was meant to find Will’s ring for a reason. 

 

Just as Layla is starting to accept that she must
keep moving forward, secrets from the past threaten Layla and her family. As
Luke and Claire join with Layla to protect their family, Layla discovers that
her uncle may not be the man she thought he was – and that there’s more to
Will’s disappearance than she ever could have imagined.
Layla Weston was
supposed to be planning her wedding, not waiting for her fiancé’s father to
die.
 

 

As Luke prepares to defend Holly for the
shooting of Gregory Meyer, Layla and her family weigh the possibility of being
able to return home to North Carolina. Only Layla isn’t quite sure that’s what
she wants. 

 

Will and Layla are faced with a new set of
challenges for their future – including the status of their upcoming wedding.
And when new revelations about his father come to light, Will finds himself
questioning his own destiny as a man. With Layla’s help, he must learn that his
identity is not determined by his DNA. 

 

Now that they are on the brink of their
happily-ever-after, will Layla and Will get everything they dreamed of? Or will
their happiness continue to be just out of reach?
 
 
They’ve been to hell and back again, but now Will and Layla
are beginning the biggest adventure of their lives: parenthood!
 
It’s only been a few short months since Will and Layla
welcomed their twins. And while Layla is excited for all that awaits her in
motherhood, she’s feeling a little disconnected from the friends who have stood
by her from the moment they met. Reintegrating into her social life and
balancing motherhood may be a bit of a challenge, but Layla isn’t going to miss
her opportunity to help her dearest friends find their Happily Ever After, too.
 
But what would life be without a curve ball once in a while?
When someone from their past surfaces and asks for help, Layla isn’t sure
telling Will is the best thing to do. He spent years protecting her, now it’s
her turn to protect him from further heartache. She knows she won’t be able to
keep the secret from Will forever, but no matter what happens, Layla is
confident they’ll walk through it together, remaining just as anchored together
as they’ve always been.
