  • Slow,

    I found this book dragged on. It touched on a lot of useless information that had nothing to do with the outcome of the store.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • complex plot, surprise ending

    I love Kimberly Belle but this one was a bit slow to get into for me. Still well worth the time to read Stranger in the Lake with the surprise ending. and a character whose moral compass leads her to an honest life. After a whirlwind romance,Charlotte McCready (26) finds herself married to wealthy widower, Paul Keller (37). Within a year she is pregnant when her world begins to fall apart on her discovery of the body of a young woman under the dock of her home. Paul and his BFFs, Jax and Micah are hiding secrets. As the complex plot reveals characters' actions the 'who-done-it' becomes a race against time Charlie (Charlotte) is a character I felt I could connect with and her brother Chet was a good support for her. I volunteered to read an ARC through Net Galley.

  • Entertaining read !

    A small town, a body found floating under a dock. That dock just happens to be where another body was found not so long ago. Paul and Charlotte live there, the other body was his late wife. The town is looking suspiciously at Paul. But wait: he is just one of the long list of suspects. Who can you really believe? Twists and turns right to the final page will keep the light on, the pages turning. Thanks to NetGalley and Harelquin Trade Publishing (US and Canada) Park Row for an entertaining read.

  • Kimberly Belle delivered!

    Kimberly Belle has once again delivered! Stranger in the Lake was a good book with a different flavor from her other books. I couldn't wait to dig in. They are all so delicious and slide right down leaving you wanting another one. The suspense in this book is a very gradual climb. I liked that. I liked her characters and could never figure out who the culprit was. I went back and forth and all over the place and didn't know who did it until it was revealed. Of course, if the author doesn't come right out and tell me at the very beginning, I never figure them out. Does that mean my mind isn't devious? If you haven't read a Kimberly Belle book, you really need to. You won't be disappointed. She always delivers a great read. Her book are entertaining and will keep you in your seat reading long after bedtime. I received a copy of this book from the author for a fair and honest review.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Haunting

    Stranger in the Lake is an entertaining thriller about murder, long-hidden secrets and old and new lies in a small Appalachian town. If you look hard enough, every character has a connection to every other character, and nothing is what it appears to be at first glance. Old grudges hang on, and you can’t always successfully cross from the wrong side of town to the right side. There is a rich cast of characters. Paul seems like a good man who’s found love and happiness again after losing his first wife. Charlotte loves Paul and feels protected and safe in his wealth after her anything but easy childhood. They are surrounded by Charlotte’s brother Chet, Paul’s childhood friends Micah and Jax, Paul’s mother, Micah’s police chief father, Charlotte’s old friend Sam from the days she was just Charlie. And then a mysterious women comes to town and begins to shake things up. Until she is found floating in the lake. Paul was accused and exonerated of killing his first wife, but this death is nearly identical. Is there really any such thing as a coincidence? I had a hard time rating this book. On the one hand it was a gripping story and once I started reading I didn’t want to stop. Author Kimberly Belle’s writing style flows smoothly and is easy to read. On the other hand, although there was a large cast of characters, it seemed like their stories dropped off just as they were getting interesting. The narrative switched from Charlotte’s telling of current events to Jax’s story from 1999, the summer before the boys were to go to college. The switch wasn’t always very smooth and at times it took a minute to place a character from the past in the present. As soon as the body was discovered there was a sense of danger and uncertainty surrounding Charlotte and she began to question what she really knew about Paul and his past. What caused my difficulty in reviewing and rating was that the mystery and actual events were pretty easy to figure out early on in the story. My desire to read on through was more to see how the author would wrap things up than to learn who did what. This is the first book I have read by this author and I do recommend it and will read more of what she writes. It’s a good read and the deep dive into the psychological motives of the characters is very interesting. Thanks to the author and publisher for providing an advance copy of Stranger in the Lake via NetGalley for my honest review. All opinions are my own.
