Stranger in the Lake by Kimberly Belle

What if your new husband was from the genteel side of the tracks and you were were a gas station attendant;  he grew up in privilege and your background was trailer park; he was eleven years older and very rich and you never aspired to much more than a steady job?

What if his first wife drowned under mysterious circumstances and many in the town believed that he may have been responsible?

Then if another young woman is discovered drowned under the dock of your magnificent house--how would you react and who would you trust?

Charlotte and Paul's marriage seems to be working despite the gossip about his first wife's death and Charlotte being designated a gold digger.  But one lie opens up a number of lies and and secrets and questions about the past and the present.

I thought I had it worked out, and I was partly right, but there was another twist that I didn't expect.   Overall...meh.

Read in March.  Review scheduled for May 31.

  1. It was an OK read. The first twist was quite expected, but I was a bit baffled by the second one.

    1. Pretty much OK for me, too. :) Not great, but not bad.

  2. Oh my gosh! That sign. LOL I needed that laugh. I probably shouldn't find it as funny as I do.

    It's too bad Stranger in the Lake wasn't better for you or Melody. At least you didn't hate it.

    1. It is a funny sign, and unfortunately, too often true!

  3. Ha... that sign is great. I really like the cover of this book and have been looking forward to it. Too bad it wasn't all that great but I may still give it a go.

    1. Give it a go. It was one of those that just didn't do anything special for me, but I never wanted to abandon it, either.
