This is the first book by this author that I have read. Of course it was the promise of a ghost story that prompted me to read it. It’s part mystery and part romance with visits from Brandy, the ghost of Rain’s friend that went missing many years ago. I wondered if the ghost of Brandy hadn’t been tied to Rain all the time but it took the friends getting together again at Silver Lake to make her appear and become active. Whatever it was it made for a very good ghost story. I could even overlook the romance. I will be searching for more of Kathryn Knight’s books. ( )

I was very surprised to find out this was Kathryn Knight's first novel, as it was beautifully and thoughtfully written, e.g. there were no plot holes or lack of depth in characters, like you usually find in most author's beginning work as they hone their craft. I really liked the characters, all of them. Very well written and well paced and just a great story, through and through. I am looking forward to seeing what else this author puts out in the future.

If I had any problem at all with the book it was the lack of investigation in the book, their purpose for all meeting at the lake house, right? There was a lot of talking, a lot of memories, a lot of drinking and eating and a lot of puddles but not any real investigation... I get why but I guess that's just the type of person I am. I would have gotten out the Ouija board and holding seances or something! But I did love the realistic characters, who all had their own personal motivation for doing what they were doing, whether they believed or not and if you can't pull a good character together your story is going to fall flat, no matter how good the story is... Kathryn Knight definitely delivered. ( )

Four friends reunite at a lake house after they all dream about a fifth friend who has mysteriously disappeared, with the intent to figure out what happened to her.

A ghost story with a sweet romance, there were parts of this book I liked a lot. Conversely, there were parts I didn't like-a lot. I found myself turning pages eagerly through the first half of this book, and through the second half (and isn't it usually the other way around?) I started asking myself why these people were so forgiving. I'm all for good people and a forgiving nature, but as humans, there has to be an initial reaction to betrayal to my way of thinking. The main character was far too selfless, showing that she hadn't learned anything from a bad marriage and she was still "a doormat". Then, there was the TSTL parts, where the ghost is leaving puddles of water all over the lake house, and yet they didn't guess from that that she might have drowned or been dumped in the lake? It took too long to figure out, especially with two scuba divers in residence, diving at a neighboring lake.

So in the end, did I like the book? I'll give you a lukewarm "kinda." It did keep me turning the pages, even through the improbable parts. I won't go into a technical opinion, because I liked the story well enough to overlook the technical aspects that bothered me. So three stars. It was good enough. ( )

"Silver Lake is part mystery, romance, and even a visit from the paranormal, all around a great, satisfying read. There's times when I'm startled in the book, firstly, by the ghostly visitor that keeps hanging around...yes, I read this at night, which meant I got a little jumpy. I was pretty surprised at the ending and it totally caught me off guard...this is a well-written story with believable characters, and the mystery is strong. I enjoyed the romance blossoming between Rain and Jason...Looking forward to more from Ms. Knight." - Storm Goddess Book Reviews (four stars)
 
"Mystery mixed with romance makes for an intense and satisfying read. Silver Lake has both elements perfectly balanced throughout. One never detracts from, but actually embellishes the other. Great characterization made me care about this vulnerable protagonist. And, of course, Jason Lansing makes a wonderful hero, both sharp-edged and gentle, he's a man neither Rain or I could resist." - Between the Pages Spotlight Review (four stars)
