A moody, mesmerizing mystery that smolders with a brooding, slow-burn tension. Kimberly Belle has done it again! Stranger In The Lake is that perfect balance between plot and character, in which a girl from the wrong side of the tracks marries a rich older man, only to find out he’s carrying a few too many secrets for comfort.
I loved Charlotte, our protagonist, so much–a small town girl raised by a neglectful mother–and rooted for her throughout the entire book as she explores the shocking depths people will go to keep their secrets buried.
With a stunning, atmospheric lakeside setting, a creepy, mysterious vibe, a bevy of secrets and lies, and a couple of dead bodies that all wound cleverly into the plot, this thriller was exactly what I needed. I highly recommend!
