Review:

Both Lily Blake and John Kipling grew up in Lake Henry, New Hampshire, and both left after high school to pursue their dreams--singing for Lily and writing for John. Now the two have returned separately to seek shelter in the small lakeside town due to the disastrous results of paparazzi fever--Lily as a victim, John as a member of the press responsible for a tragedy.

Falsely accused and hounded by the press, her privacy violated and destroyed, Lily finds refuge in a cottage on the lake, while her sister and the other residents of Lake Henry close ranks, refusing to discuss her with the media hordes that soon come knocking. But Lily can't avoid John, who also lives on the lake and at first sees Lily's story as prime fodder for the novel that can break him into publishing. But soon the vulnerable, besieged woman elicits far different emotions from him, and John becomes fiercely committed to helping Lily find justice.

Layered with complicated family relationships and richly textured with the sights, sounds, and colorful characters of a small town, Barbara Delinsky's Lake News will satisfy longtime fans as well as those anxious to read a timely and thought-provoking tale from one of the genre's top authors. --Lois Faye Dyer

Book Description With this powerful story, Barbara Delinsky, the bestselling and acclaimed author of Coast Road and Three Wishes, has written her richest and most exciting novel yet. At its center is Lily Blake, a talented singer who shuns the limelight and cherishes her privacy. Tricked by a devious reporter into unwittingly giving an interview about her friendship with a distinguished churchman--a newly appointed Cardinal--she finds herself accused of having had an affair with him. Shocked and dismayed, Lily becomes a pariah and suffers the brutal, ultimate violation of her privacy as headlines all across the country proclaim her guilt. Hounded by the press, fired from her job, deprived of all public freedom, Lily has no choice but to flee. She returns in secret to her hometown of Lake Henry, in a remote, beautiful part of New Hampshire. But, idyllic as it may look, Lake Henry, too, has its secrets. Some were the cause of her leaving home in the first place, so returning to her birthplace and her family is not without its own stress and pain. Driven by the need to exact justice--and, for herself, some kind of closure--from the media that changed her life forever, Lily forms an uneasy alliance with John Kipling, a journalist who was born and raised in Lake Henry's poorest neighborhood. His successful career as a big-city reporter has ended disastrously, and John has come back home to edit the local newspaper, Lake News. At first he sees Lily as a victim, as well as a subject for the book he hopes to write. But soon she becomes someone whose appeal--and cause--he cannot deny, even at the risk of taking on his former colleagues in her defense. Set against the physical beauty of New Hampshire and against the complex web of family life and relationships in a small town, Lake News moves triumphantly toward a surprising and deeply satisfying conclusion. Barbara Delinsky's bestselling Three Wishes was praised by Publishers Weekly for its "spare, controlled, and poignant p. Seller Inventory # 0001046
