Summit Lake by Charlie Donlea

Traveling With T purchased this book for her own reading time.

Summit Lake

Summary: Some places seem too beautiful to be touched by horror. Summit Lake, nestled in North Carolina s Blue Ridge Mountains, is that kind of place. But two weeks ago, Becca Eckersley, a first-year law student and daughter of a powerful attorney, was brutally murdered there. Now the town is reeling with grief, and the police are baffled.

At first, investigative reporter Kelsey Castle thinks of the assignment as a fluff piece. But the savagery of the crime, and the efforts to keep it quiet, hint at something far more sinister than a random attack by a stranger. As Kelsey digs deeper, despite danger and warnings, she feels a growing connection to the dead girl. And the more she learns about Becca’s friendships, her love life and her secrets the more convinced she becomes that walking in Becca’s footsteps could lead her out of her own dark past.


Traveling With T’s Thoughts:

After reading Don’t Believe It, Twenty Years Later and The Girl Who Was Taken, I HAD to read Summit Lake.


What I liked:

The cover looks like a perfect place to visit but the fog gives it a bit of a mysterious feel.

How the book was laid out. I loved knowing some things up front and discovering more as the story unfolded.

The ending. Loved it.


Bottom line: Charlie Donlea might have been flying under my radar for awhile, but learn from my mistakes and don’t let him fly under yours.
