After the end of her marriage Kate Granger has retreated to her parents’ home on Lake Superior to pull herself together only to discover the body of a murdered woman washed into the shallows Tucked in the folds of the woman’s curiously vintage gown is an infant as cold and. Kate Granger returns to her parent's home on Lake Superior upon learning that her husband was having an affair She hopes to use the time there to think about her life and start over Unfortunately one morning along with her father and her father's friend Johnny she came across the body of a young woman on the shores of the lake What is most shocking to Kate is that she recognizes the woman from dreams she has been having Not only does she recognize the woman she somehow knows that there is a baby tucked in the folds of her nightgown Kate's reaction to seeing the woman's body and finding the baby make her a possible suspect in the death of the woman Side note I didn't see what was so suspicious about her reaction to seeing the dead woman and baby I think if I found two dead bodies I would have a strong reaction as well Just sayingEven though the police are suspicious of her Kate is still able to travel to Wharton to visit her cousin Simon and the bed and breakfast he runs out of the former home of their great grandfather Harrison Connor Things get even stranger while she stays in her family's home and as she attempts to put the pieces together it appears that ghosts of the past are all around her What secrets might the lake haveThis book is told through the past and the present though alternating chapters I enjoyed both eually In the past we meet Addie and Jess Addie was literally born in the lake and Jess was the one who found her floating in the water They had a close bond from that time on and no one was shocked when they married years laterWendy Webb sets her books about lakes and uses a supernatural element in them She writes books with plots that are tied to the past with old mansions strong female characters age old secrets and yes ghosts Her books are described as Northern Gothic and do have an eerie and atmospheric feel to them She also threw in a tragic love story and mysterious lake creatureentity into the mix her as well This book had a little bit of everything but it is not scary or creepy at least in my opinion It has of an eerie feel to it even with the supernatural elements it won’t scare of have readers sleeping with the lights on Plus even with death in the book there is nothing graphic or gory There is mystery and the story really revolves around the past and present story line's and Kate's attempt to make sense of her dreams and experiencesI thoroughly enjoyed this book and was invested in learning if Kate would learn the woman's identity What brought the woman to the lake Why was she murdered How does the lake tie in What is going on in the bed and breakfast Will the case ever be solved Why was a missing person's report not filedI think this book is perfect for those who enjoy lighter not scary Gothic ghost stories involving some mystery glimpses into the past romance and intrigue Thank you to Lake Union Publishing and NetGalley who provided me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review The thoughts and opinions expressed in this review are my ownRead of my reviews at wwwopenbookpostcom

At peace as its mother No one can identify the woman Except for Kate She’s seen her before In her dreamsOne hundred years ago a love story ended in tragedy its mysteries left unsolved It’s time for the lake to give up its secrets As each mystery unravels it pulls Kate dee. 35 As I've mentioned before it seems that books follow a trend Either that or I am just randomly encountering books that make it seem that way So trend or not I am enjoying the many books that I have read lately that contain a folklore or myth of some kind Just love all those old stories containing people and places old beliefs and warnings This book that I enjoyed also contains such a storySet on Lake Superior this a a good story very atmospher Old house fog mist with elements of the paranormal a talent of reading dreams passed down through generations The timeline is one hundred years apart and now an event needs to be understood and corrected in the present Of course the lake plays a big part of the story in fact in this book it is where it beginsThe Lakeshore was magical was magical then in those days and so it remained But people had grown to noisy too preoccupied too sophisticated to listen to its song To understand what happened in the past Kate our main character must learn about the past her own family heritage The spirits of the past are waiting for her to connect the dots and bring peace and the truth to the forefront Don't believe in spirits Maybe were just not listening hard enough in our now too noisy world ARC from Netgalley
