March 6th 2019 by Chanson Books

Robin Lancaster, a twenty-six-year-old former kindergarten teacher, has her summer and her life all figured out. She’s ready to be on her own, writing and illustrating her children’s stories at her family’s beloved lake house. Once there, she intends to rekindle a romance with Caleb Jackson, the area’s top hunting and fishing guide, and bag him for herself.

Complications arise from the start when Robin finds out her mother has rented the lake house to a man they know nothing about.

Matthew McLaughlin, forty-year-old widowed university professor and author from California, shows up at Pine Lake in crisis. A sabbatical might be his only hope to save much more than his career. He needs a place of refuge. Sharing the lake house with a lighthearted young woman and her dog is the last thing on his mind.

Caleb Jackson has his own plans. He’s used to things going his way, but a man staying in Robin’s house presents unforeseen challenges. When paths unavoidably tangle for these three, hearts are on the line.

My Review: 
Refuge at Pine Lake is my first introduction to Rose Chandler Johnson’s writing. It definitely will not be the last. This heartwarming tale is a story of hope, grace healing, faith, overcoming and inspiration. I was intrigued from the beginning to the end. It is not a long read and I had no problem having it read in just a few hours. Which was, very well spent. 
I highly recommend Refuge at Pine Lake for all readers. I believe so many would find it to relatable. I would love to give it one hundred stars if I could. I would love to read more by this author in the future. 
I received this book from the publisher, but was not required to write a review. This review is 100% my own honest opinion.


  1. Thank you so much Amy for having me on your blog today. I appreciate your introduction. Thank you as well for your enthusiastic review. I'm so glad you enjoyed the story. I hope many new readers will participate in the tour and giveaway. I look forward to giving away more copies of my book.

  2. I love the cover and synopsis. If I was able to, I would escape to a place just like the cover photo. A secluded mountain cabin with a lake nearby sounds just about perfect to me. This book is a must read for me. Thank you for sharing the info.

  3. I enjoyed your excerpt and I love your cover.
