Often the monsters can be right in front us of Often they are within fighting the battle between good and evil Out of the characters you will meet you must decide who is the killer and why and who is part of the cover up? The truth is easy to miss when its right in front of us In Cowie's skillful hands this story of obsession murder grief and the search for truth is both a compassionate character study and a compelling psychological mystery thriller What I enjoy about Amber's novels that set her apart her books make you think That is why I love reading People may read the same books and have a different takeaway I have read many reviews stating they did not like the abrupt ending I cannot think of any other way to end and thought it was perfection Is she setting it up for a possible seuel let's hope or a future book or is she leaving you to draw your own conclusion? I love her settings I am a nature gal at heart There is always a hidden meaning with her books and often the skilled author allows the savvy reader to seek and find the answer or draw a conclusion A metaphor symbol a teaser —she always keeps you guessing Her well developed characters have something to hide Good stories do not give up their secrets early on She may not tell you everything but slowly their demons and inner turmoil are unraveled The author smoothly mixes red herrings and sprinkles clues Readers who like a good psychological puzzle will be rewarded There are themes of grief guilt greed and loyalty Something or someone may be weighing them down The outdoor elements and settings draw you in Water can be beautiful but dangerous The same with people Good vs evil LOSS LAKE would make for an excellent series for the small or widescreen MONSTERS are they part of myth legend or monsters within us? Some characters are seeking absolution retribution resolution and some escaping or hiding their past Some want to start over but their past haunts them Some things can weigh the soul Some try and protect themselves or others Our actions or those of others cause conseuencesLOSS LAKE is vivid symbolic and full of dark family secrets in this small rural town—the perfect eerie setting for HalloweenIn my opinion the author's writing moves to a different higher level Both plot and character driven Cowie delivers an addictive totally unputdownable thriller with an explosive killer jaw dropping ending Trust NO one I highly recommend it if you like sophisticated literary mystery thrillers For me literary mystery thrillers are rich evocative lyrical in depth characterization and balanced with emotion mystery and wit They wake up your brain and your heart These mysteries are than a typical whodunit The characters are complex the storyline intriguing and the language is rich A few authors excel in this category and my favorites are Randall Silvis T Greenwood Wendy Walker Karen Katchur AJ Banner Christina McDonald and Amber Cowie I enjoy literary mystery thrillers I cannot wait to see what is next from Amber Fans of Ruth Ware will enjoy this one Stay tuned for Nov 10th pub day with an unforgettable Elevator Ride with the Author Interview to discover about the story behind the story and this exciting author In the meantime I highly recommend read my reviews Rapid Falls Raven Lane and check out her fabulous essays short stories articles and blogs on her website Check out my A with her debut Rapid Falls A special thank you to #Lake Union the author and #NetGalley for the honor of an advanced reading copy #JDCMustReadBooks

book Loss Lake

Loss Lake ? The Mallory investigates the fearful she becomes Maybe there are monsters in McNamara Maybe some have followed her thereAs a winter storm bears down the refuge Mallory sought has become a trap It’s time to face her past the secrets behind the town’s friendly faces and a reckoning that will shatter the eerie icy calm of Loss Lake This book started off well for me A widow starting a new life in a small town fresh start Dead body in the lake behind her house Got it Lots of history in the small town everyone knows everyone neat characters lots related Got it Love starts between the widow and a cop Got it Then it goes south It seemed to pick up pace to the point of rushing a lake monster characters turning but not clearly turning and an ending that was not acceptable I was bought into the first half then lost me the second half especially at the end
