    • The Woman in the Lake is a dual timeline story, one branch set in 18th century England, the other in present day Great Britain There s a touch of suspense and the supernatural, a tiny bit of romance present day timeline only , and a whole lot of murderous intent Sadly, neither plotline works the characters in the 18th century one have a little personality, but that s only when compared to those in the present day one, who are so wooden you can practically hear them creaking as they move thro The [...]

    • First, the description for this book touts it for fans of Kate Morton I respectfully disagree While it has some elements similar to Morton s novels alternating timelines, a mystery in the past, and complex characters, The Woman in the Lake can t compare to Morton s novels The comparison to Susannah Kearsley is a bit on the nose, as there are supernatural elements woven into the narrative which are never explained to my satisfaction Her fingers brushed against something soft and smoot Fir [...]
