The truth lies just beneath the surface…
Kate’s world falls apart when her teenage son drowns in the waters by his school. She’s convinced it wasn’t just a tragic accident, but no one will listen.
Then, six years later, Kate unearths Michael’s lost diary and realises she may finally be able uncover what really happened that night.
But as she delves deeper, she begins to realise that she didn’t really know her son – or the people in his life – at all. And that, sometimes, secrets are better left submerged…
My Review : The Lake
Truthfully, I found this book to be a bit boring.
I think that the climax could have been reached a lot sooner, which would have made it seem less cumbersome.
Kate’s son drowned while at school, and she hasn’t been able to escape the feeling that it wasn’t an accident.
This propels her down a dangerous path of discovery.
While she does end up learning the truth, how she gets there isn’t easy. Leaving death and all kinds of illegal activity in her wake, you’d think that I would have been more excited at this point.
But this one for me fell quite flat.
