And that, sometimes, secrets are better left submerged… An interesting premise with an equally good plot! The plot flows smoothly and it' has a dark theme to it, that keeps you hooked on. AIso, it's filled with twists and turns. I kept guessing and changing my suspect right till the end, but even then I couldn't figure it out before Kate.
In terms of the main character, Kate, there were times when I genuinely felt bad for her, because losing is obviously difficult and plus, she didn't have the right support system to help her grieve. But there were instances in the book, when I lost connection with her and found some of her actions questionable. But overall, a good read. Mar 10, Louise Wilson rated it really liked it.

Thankyou to Avon Books for providing me with a copy of The Lake, via Netgalley, in exchange for an honest review. When Kates mother is hospitalized from a stroke, she he to her house to look after her cat and be closer to her mum. The Lake was a gripping read, with several characters I wanted to reach through the s and strangle. Being a mother myself, The silent sex Lake Louise about harm befalling children are always an emotional read and this one was no exception. A fast paced thriller, covering many intense subjects, such as abusive relationships, grief, family issues and more, The Lake provided enough drama and twists to keep me entertained the whole way through.
While some of the plot points were a little predictable, on the whole, I found the story an engaging and easy read. This was an interesting read that kept me glued to my Kindle. It centers on Kate, whose 15 year old son drowned 6 years ago- it was ruled an accident but Kate can't get past the fact that Michael was a star swimmer and believes there has to be more to the story, despite the fact that her family and friends are pushing her to move on with her life.
I felt sorry for Kate and thought it was terrible that she didn't have much support from those around her. The story was unique in that a big chunk of This was an interesting read that kept me glued to my Kindle. The story was unique in that a big chunk of the 2nd half of the book is spent on the retreat she attends to do her investigation and it almost re like a different story; this was done in a good way, though- Kate took all the things she had learned in the first part of the book and used them The silent sex Lake Louise figure out what happened in the 2nd part, and enough time was spent to build out the characters around her at the retreat and to finally give her a support system.
There were a few things that caused me to have to suspend my disbelief, but it didn't take away from my enjoyment of the book. I did feel like the storyline around Kate's mother's stroke didn't add much to the story and probably didn't need to be there at all, but I suppose it could help the reader better understand her family dynamics.
The ending of the book was somewhat abrupt, but it did tie everything that happened up to that point together, and provided a little surprise twist beyond the main event that I didn't see coming. Overall, I liked the book and raced through it to find out what happened. I'd give it 3. Thanks to Netgalley for providing me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Was a good book.
Took me a bit to get into it. Was hard to hold my interest in parts. Did finish it and ended up liking it. Thanks to the author, the publisher and NetGalley for an early release of this book. May 31, Shalini rated it liked it. My first book by author Louise Sharland, I was completely sucked into the plot.
I loved how Kate came out of her slumber to find out what really happened to her son that night by the lake. An atmosphere of suspense was well created with a few suspects. To me, it felt it lost focus, not that the direction taken The silent sex Lake Louise not interesting enough but needed a gradual molding. There was something dichotomous about it. Maybe it was just me Overall, it was entertaining enough for a Saturday. The blurb for The Lake promised an addictive -turner and while I did finish reading it in a day, I am still as ambivalent about it as I was while reading it.
Kate Hardy, a grieving mother has been living in limbo ever since the drowning of her 15yr old son, six years ago. Though she suspects foul play considering that Micheal was a good swimmer, no-one is willing to believe her. And with a haphazard investigation, the lukewarm support of her family and her controlling husband, Kate has been The blurb for The Lake promised an addictive -turner and while I did finish reading it in a day, I am still as ambivalent about it as I was while reading it.
And with a haphazard investigation, the lukewarm support of her family and her controlling husband, Kate has been unable to move on. Things quickly take a turn when she discovers Micheal's diary and figures that her son was hiding a huge secret, probably one that got him killed. Armed with a renewed sense of purpose, Kate begins her own investigation into her son's death. The villain is revealed midway through the story; the rest of the plot is about bringing the person to justice. The story premise had great potential as the author has touched upon sensitive issues such as loss ofemotional abuse and underage abuse.
While the first half of the book maintained a steady pace, the latter half drags by. The story itself was intriguing; my curiosity to find out what happens next kept me reading till the end. But the writing style was not to my taste. For eg: Though not an expert, I would suppose that a diary entry would be written in the past tense not in the present or present continuous tense.
Also the repetitive use of certain lines How many times have I said this? Why does everyone keep asking me this? Not to forget the very convenient, coincidental way Kate found out the location of the antagonist.
The character of Caleb seemed like a forced addition to the plot, provided only to give Kate a happy-ever-after. The story was off to a great start but slowly peters out. The anguish of a mother is portrayed well as well as the insecurities of an emotional abuse victim.
Overall, I would say the book was average. A big thank you to Avon Books and Netgalley for approving my request for a digital copy of this book in return for an honest review.The silent sex Lake Louise
