My main male character, Luke, in INN BY THE LAKE, has moved away from his parents’ inn in Western Maryland to work at a construction firm in their marketing department. It’s a job he likes, even if it keeps him away from home and his beloved Deep Creek Lake. Because I have enjoyed my time in this insurance, banking and corporate center, I decided he’d find it a good place to work.
But visit? Just for fun? Why?
He treasures a few mementoes that keep the fathers and son connection strong.
Deep Creek Lake, in Garrett County, Maryland’s western-most county, attracts visitors year round for its natural delights.
