Book Review: Summit Lake


“No suspects.  No persons of interest.  Just a girl who was alive one day and dead the next.”

Some places seem too beautiful to be touched by horror. Summit Lake, nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains, is that kind of place, with charming stilt houses dotted along the pristine water. But two weeks ago, Becca Eckersley, a first-year law student, was brutally murdered in one of those houses. The daughter of a powerful attorney, Becca was hard-working, accomplished, and ambitious. Now, while the town reels with grief and shocked residents gather to share their theories, the police are baffled.

At first, investigative reporter Kelsey Castle thinks of the assignment as a fluff piece. But the savagery of the crime, and the determined efforts to keep the case quiet, all hint at something far more than a random attack by a stranger. As Kelsey digs deeper, pushing on despite danger and warnings, she feels a growing connection to the dead girl. And the more she learns about Becca’s friendships, her love life—and the secrets she was keeping—the more convinced she becomes that learning the truth about Becca could be the key to overcoming her own dark past…

*****5 STARS*****

We start off knowing Becca is murdered, but who kills her and why? I thought I figured it all out, then one by one all the my theories were shot down. Kelsey has her own demons to deal with and uncovers the truth despite the state police being clueless asshats.

The truth of who killed Becca, why, and how is just heartbreaking. The truth of her life, her love, and other surprises that will never come to fruition is heartbreaking.

Excellent read and mystery.
