Summary

The worst part was we could have avoided the whole thing. Only a minor change here or there would have done the trick - a different decision made last week or 20 years ago. Instead, every choice had led to this terrifying place

It was supposed to be the perfect vacation: five old friends together for the first time in years; a secluded cabin by a private lake; late nights, wine, and laughter. No one - least of all Megan, looking forward to a break from her suburban routine - thought anything bad would happen. 

But who has been keeping a secret? 

Who has been hiding a lie for over 20 years? 

And whose life is in danger?  

Megan thought she knew everything about her friends. But things change in the woods. The truth gets twisted. Lies rise to the surface. Bonds start to break. 

And someone is watching them....

Dark, compelling, and totally unputdownable, The Lake House will have you wanting to sleep with the lights on. Perfect for fans of Ruth Ware, Shari Lapena, and The Hunting Party.

Couldn't finish it.

Made it to ch. 21 and couldn't listen any longer. I don't even care to know who did it.

Great story!

Great little mystery! I always enjoy reading about womens friendships, and this book has a lot of that. It was intriguing enough to not know who the bad guy was and very easy to follow. Would recommend for anyone who likes chik lit mystery.

Not the worst, not the best!

So I really should’ve paid more attention to the reviews. It wasn’t riveting or suspenseful. The story dragged on too long. The plot was ok though, it just need to get to the point a little quicker.
