BLUE LAKE by Carol Ann Kauffman

Dear Gentle Readers,

Here are some reviews of BLUE LAKE, the book that started it all for me. The first novel in the Time After Time series takes place in New Mexico, Ohio, and England, with a few side trips to Ireland and Aruba. It covers over ten years in the lives of Nicole Minnotti, an Ohio businesswoman, and the love of her life, Richard MacKenzie, a much younger British/Irish actor. It was written in 2011 and published in 2012.

If you you're looking for a romantic adventure story or a contemporary romance without explicit sex or graphic violence, a story that examines the value of love and companionship and the "age thing", I think you'll like this book. Let me know!

I thoroughly enjoyed this book from the beginning to the final word. Carol Kauffman held my interest with this love story. Good reading with lots of action and with locations all over the globe. She loved him to the end and beyond through all their trials and tribulations.

This was a brilliant novel, and everyone will enjoy reading it. It wasn't something I'd pick up for myself, but after reading it, I can't wait to read more! Great book, and well written!

After enjoying Carol Kauffman's other novel, Bel Terra; I wanted to read Blue Lake. This novel has been composed and developed into a truly epic romantic novel spanning over 10 years in time. It crosses the United States from the West coast,across the Atlantic to England, Ireland, Italy. Even a couple of trips to Aruba adds to the visual appeal. Mrs. Kauffman describes the scenic areas so well that you can easily visualize yourself there. The main characters are so well developed that I seemed to need a box of tissues by my side when their plights and troubles were made apparent throughout their saga. I really became immersed in this story. It is a true tale of the Power of and beyond. If you enjoy romantic novels interspersed with action and the occasional quips that makes you smile; you'll enjoy this book.

This is a fun, intricately plotted story of two lovers on a wild ride of an on-again, off-again love affair. I especially enjoyed the tenderness of the love scenes and the candid treatment of the May/December relationship. Looking forward to the next book in the series!
