Stranger in the Lake

Summary: Charlotte didn’t know her greatest risk was saying, “I do.”

When Charlotte married the wealthy widower Paul, it caused a ripple of gossip in their small lakeside town. They have a charmed life together, despite the cruel whispers about her humble past and his first marriage. But everything starts to unravel when she discovers a young woman’s body floating in the exact same spot where Paul’s first wife tragically drowned.

At first, it seems like a horrific coincidence, but the stranger in the lake is no stranger. Charlotte saw Paul talking to her the day before, even though Paul tells the police he’s never met the woman. His lie exposes cracks in their fragile new marriage, cracks Charlotte is determined to keep from breaking them in two.

As Charlotte uncovers dark mysteries about the man she married, she doesn’t know what to trust—her heart, which knows Paul to be a good man, or her growing suspicion that there’s something he’s hiding in the water.


Traveling With T’s Thoughts:

Oh my….. I did enjoy this book. It had a bit of an angle that does get on my nerves a bit- but there was lots of more to this story!

A naive wife angle can work my nerves- I like my women strong, ready to fight, and not singing stand by their man. Charlotte, at times, had a bit too much naive wife going on- she had her reasons (which I understood) and more to the point- I think she actually LOVED Paul. Overall, her character had the most depth to her- she was fighting a war in herself over who to trust, what to believe, and what could be the best outcome of her situation.


What I liked:

The creepiness of the cover. If you are going to have a title like Stranger in a Lake, you gotta have a good cover.

The setting. I don’t think there was a better setting to this book than the one that Kimberly Belle created- one to really drive home some of the things that Charlotte was wrestling with.

The ending. I loved how it all was revealed (and it was a good reveal!)


Bottom line: Put this on your TBR list, folks.
