    3.5 stars women's fiction Although the description reads as if this is a thriller, it's not. It's the story of two women and coping with loss, dealing with guilt and moving on. That's not to say that there's not an air of a bit of mystery, but it is compelling and works well with the ...

    3.5 stars for Bethany Chase?s One Night at the Lake! Having read and enjoyed The One That Got Away by Chase a few years back, which I would said falls most solidly into the women?s fiction category, I was a bit surprised to see this one being billed as more of a thriller. But t...

    I have enjoyed previous books by this author. I was expecting this to be a suspense as this was how it was listed at my library. But to me this was not a thriller. This is a bit of Women's Fiction. It has some romance. A little bit of mystery. But it is mainly about friendship. Ther...

    I received a copy of this title via NetGalley. It does not impact my review. Well, this book was not for me. A small part of it might be that I have been in the mood lately for mystery and suspense. I knew this was not that type of book, but I feel like the synopsis suggests there i...

    Plenty of sorrow, guilt, angst, and loss. Lather, rinse, and repeat ... until comes redemption, love, and happy ending. That's about it, folks. You have just experienced this book without having to read it. Okay, I'm being overly glib and perhaps a bit mean. No, it wasn't an awful ...

    "One Night at the Lake" combined so many disturbing elements, and creeped me out so badly I didn't review it right away, but set it aside for a couple of days to think about it. A couple of days turned into a couple of months, and I just realized I have been shoving it aside on my sh...

    Thank you Random House for the gifted book. All opinions are my own. I'm torn on this one. I loved the setting of this story, and I loved being transported to the Finger Lakes through the authors descriptive words. But it's hard to say I love the plot when it was hard to root for th...

    This book was different than what I expected! I went in expecting more mystery and instead it was more woman?s fiction with some romance and some mystery. I found myself lost in each characters story and how each person played a factor into what happened that fateful night. Leah and ...
