Stranger in the Lake by Kimberly Belle


A new husband, Paul, a dead body in the lake, and Paul leaving on a hiking trip?

What should Charlotte think about all of this especially since she saw her husband talking to the dead woman yesterday, and he denies he knows her?  And to top it all off, Paul tells her to lie to the police about where he went.

The body is in the same place that Paul's first wife was found four years ago.

Every time their neighbor, Micah, stops by Charlotte gets nervous because he is part of the police force.  She is worried and angry at Paul because she might mess up and say something she shouldn’t.  Why did he leave and make her deal with all of this alone?

There was a lot of gripping tension for Charlotte and for me as I read.  I would have been pretty nervous about the lies, and I wondered why Paul asked her to lie if he had nothing to hide. What did Charlotte get herself into by marrying Paul?

The apprehension mounts as you turn the pages and find out the secrets everyone has been keeping for years in this town.

STRANGER IN THE LAKE is about more than the stranger in the lake.  It is about the lengths people go to in order to keep themselves out of trouble.

Hang on to your hats - Ms. Belle has done it again!!

You won’t be able to put down this twisty, surprise-filled, keeping-you-guessing-until-the-end book.

ENJOY!!  5/5
