One hundred years ago a love story ended in tragedy; now the lake is giving up its secrets. And Kate is being pulled into the eddy of a haunting folktale that has been handed down in whispers over generations.

This book didn't pull me in as quickly as some of the author's other works, but eventually the story began to hook me in and I became even more invested. I really liked the emphasis on ghosts and the paranormal, and how water itself was presented as a theme/character. I love reading about old houses and family secrets, and this absolutely filled the bill. The last 10% of the book, especially that final chapter, was haunting and satisfying. If you are looking for a great ghost story, Wendy Webb proves once again that she is capable of fully delivering.

This is the best of Webb's five ghost stories!

Stars: ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Ghostly mystery from the past….or the present?? The lines here are definitely blurred...

Kate has run back to her parents after suffering an emotional trauma. Just as she’s settling in, she becomes embroiled in a murder case...but is this case as current as the local police believe? Why does Kate know so many details about this woman? And why is she suddenly dreaming about her so vividly?

Needing some space from all the drama Kate moves in with her cousin Simon, in the charming nearby town of Wharton. Unfortunately for Kate, you can run but you cannot hide, and with events from the past suddenly crossing over to the present, will we finally find out just what happened to the lady in the lake? And will there be ties to her own family? The story of Addie and Jess is also revealed...but just what do they have to do with anything? Kate, Simon and police detective Nick won’t rest until they find out just who killed the woman, and why.

Pros: Lovely, descriptive writing...the descriptions of Wharton make me want to visit this special town! This book also had a great, unexpected ending.

Cons: Perhaps a bit cliche/predictable in places...and I wasn’t as spooked as I usually am while reading a Wendy Webb novel.

Still very good...supernatural/fantasy elements run throughout this novel, so if that’s not your thing...stay away. If you enjoy a good ghost story every now and then, you will enjoy it.
