Stranger in the Lake

We rated this book:


Charlotte has lived in this town all her life and knows everybody, and everybody knows her. She’s moved up from living in a trailer park taking care of her baby brother to now being married to rich widower Paul. His wife died four years earlier in the lake they live on. She’s ignored the rumors surrounding his first wife’s death because she loves Paul, but she starts to question everything when another woman ends up dead in the same spot and she saw her husband talking to her the day before. He lies about ever knowing the stranger in the lake. Even in a small town where everyone knows everyone, there are some who still have their secrets and will do anything to protect them.

I have read a couple of other of Belle’s books, and I would say this one is on par with her previous novels. There’s nothing absolutely astounding to her writing: the mystery is fairly easy to decipher with uncomplicated characters. However, there is still something fun about reading a domestic suspense novel over the summer. So, I would still recommend it as a fun summer read to add to your list or as something to check out during quarantine. My one question is, how come it never works out perfectly to marry a rich widower? They always have dark secrets and mysteries surrounding them. If only real life was this dramatic, well, hopefully with less murder. Dive into this enjoyable departure from real life.
