Charlotte is from the poor side of town, and she is thrilled to marry older, wealthy, charming Paul, whose first wife tragically drowned. When another woman is found drowned in the same place as Paul's wife, she starts to wonder if something more is going on.

I would have liked to see some more depth in these characters. In the end, I found Paul's mom to be one of the most interesting, and sadly she's not in the book that much. ( )

I really enjoy Kimberly Belle’s thrillers, and this was no exception. I read it in one long sitting.
Charlotte (Charlie) grew up poor in a trailer park with a drug addicted mother, and caring for her baby brother. However, all her dreams came true when she met Paul, a wealthy architect. Now married to Paul, she is living an idyllic life until one morning when she finds a body floating under their dock. This is the second woman to be found dead in the lake under their dock. The first woman was Paul’s first wife, Katherine.
Strangely, these aren’t the only 2 bodies that have been found in the lake. Another was Skeleton Bob, a local drug dealer found in his old Camaro at the bottom of the lake. Are these three bodies connected? If so, how?
Charlotte’s husband begins acting very erratically, and now Charlotte doesn’t know whether or not she can believe him.
Adding to her suspicions is the way Paul’s friends are behaving- Batty Jax and Lake Hunter Micah. Sam, Charlie’s old friend, is cold towards her, telling Charlie she shouldn’t have married Paul. Diana, Paul’s mother, has never truly warmed to Charlie.
Charlie turns to her brother, Chet, for help - but he hasn’t told her the whole truth either.
As Charlotte tries to discover the truth, she learns more than she expected, turning her world upside down and putting herself in great danger.
The novel keeps the tension level high, and keeps you guessing, but I definitely had my suspicions of who committed the murders. It turns out I did guess correctly, but I didn’t guess the reason. So the reason behind the motive for the murders was definitely a surprise!
I am looking forward to the next Kimberly Belle novel.

What happens when the girl from the wrong side of the tracks falls in love and marries the man from the right side of the tracks in a small town? He comes with secrets and a dead ex-wife, she comes from a horrible background and the whole town is watching and talking. Enter a pretty stranger that is going to blow the top off of a cold case. Not the one you might think.

I’m a huge Kimberly Belle fan. Love her writing, plot twists, story lines. This wasn’t my favorite though. But, it was an enjoyable thriller and held my attention. I did find this read more straight forward, figuring out the ‘Who Done Its’ pretty early. The descriptive scenery is top notch...beautiful and scary at the same time. The relationships described between friends and family members is excellent. I thought the character development was excellent, revealing to us a little at a time, the true nature of the characters.

Thanks to Ms Belle, Harlequin, and NetGalley for this ARC. Opinion is mine alone. ( )

This is the third book I have read by Kimberly Belle; I loved her last one “Dear Wife”. It pains me to admit that I had a difficult time getting into this one as the narrative in the beginning was drawn out with the main female protagonist Charlie (aka Charlotte) spending an inordinate amount of time just waiting in her house trying to figure out what was going on with her husband Paul and his friends. Once the story started moving, it got better although I figured out what who the murderer was about halfway through, and accurately anticipated some of the plot twists.

I would have loved to see the characters more developed. The whole story of the friendship among Paul, Jax, and Micah, in my opinion, needed to have been developed more in the flashbacks. And Sam was, regretfully, really underutilized.

It isn’t a bad book; it just left me wanting more from it. Her last book, “Dear Wife”, set a really high bar. ( )

A new husband, Paul, a dead body in the lake, and Paul leaving on a hiking trip?

What should Charlotte think about all of this especially since she saw her husband talking to the dead woman yesterday, and he denies he knows her? And to top it all off, Paul tells her to lie to the police about where he went.

The body is in the same place that Paul's first wife was found four years ago.

Every time their neighbor, Micah, stops by Charlotte gets nervous because he is part of the police force. She is worried and angry at Paul because she might mess up and say something she shouldn’t. Why did he leave and make her deal with all of this alone?

There was a lot of gripping tension for Charlotte and for me as I read. I would have been pretty nervous about the lies, and I wondered why Paul asked her to lie if he had nothing to hide. What did Charlotte get herself into by marrying Paul?

The apprehension mounts as you turn the pages and find out the secrets everyone has been keeping for years in this town.

STRANGER IN THE LAKE is about more than the stranger in the lake. It is about the lengths people go to in order to keep themselves out of trouble.

Hang on to your hats - Ms. Belle has done it again!!

You won’t be able to put down this twisty, surprise-filled, keeping-you-guessing-until-the-end book.

ENJOY!! 5/5

This book was given to me by the publisher via NETGALLEY in exchange for an honest review. ( )
