The Lake House Kate Morton read online review & book description:

From the New York Times bestselling author of The Secret Keeper comes a “moody, suspenseful page-turner” (People, Best Book Pick) filled with mystery and spellbinding secrets.

Living on her family’s idyllic lakeside estate in Cornwall, England, Alice Edevane is a bright, inquisitive, and precociously talented sixteen-year-old who loves to write stories.

One midsummer’s eve, after a beautiful party drawing hundreds of guests to the estate has ended, the Edevanes discover that their youngest child, eleven-month-old Theo, has vanished without a trace. He is never found, and the family is torn apart, the house abandoned.

Decades later, Alice is living in London, having enjoyed a long successful career as a novelist. Miles away, Sadie Sparrow, a young detective in the London police force, is staying at her grandfather’s house in Cornwall. While out walking one day, she stumbles upon the old Edevane estate—now crumbling and covered with vines. Her curiosity is sparked, setting off a series of events that will bring her and Alice together and reveal shocking truths about a past long gone...yet more present than ever.

A lush, atmospheric tale of intertwined destinies from a masterful storyteller, The Lake House is an enthralling, thoroughly satisfying read.

    I really did enjoy this book right up to the very end. It was very suspenseful and the character build was fantastic. However I felt the ending was a bit rushed and not as fulfilling as I had hoped.

    This was my first by this author. It was spellbinding and I was not able to put it down. It is well written, clean and no use of vulgar language. I would definitely recommend it for a good read.
  • Intriguing book!

    This book was a great read. Even when I had thought I knew what happened to Theo you don't really expect the twist and turns. Very enjoyable!

    Absolutely the best one yet!, The author's description and character with PTSD was spot on. I'd love to visit Cornwall County someday.

    The book started off slowly, but once 150 pages into it I couldn't put it down.

    Excellent story telling, enjoyed the book. The setting was wonderful, I felt like I had visited the Lake House several times. The characters were engaging. The only problem I had was reading the book too quickly.
