Daughters of the Lake Reviews
3.5 As I've mentioned before, it seems that books follow a trend. Either that or I am just randomly encountering books that make it seem that way. So trend or not, I am enjoying the many books that I have read lately, that contain a folklore or myth of some kind. Just love all those old stories containing people and places, old beliefs and warnings. This book that I enjoyed also contains such a story.
Set on Lake Superior this a a good story, very atmospher. Old house, fog, mist, with elements of ...more
A wonderful historical fiction with mystery, tragedy, ghosts of loves and lives lost and ultimately redemtion of a families past that has been hidden for so long. I enjoyed how the story was interwoven with the past and present. The characters were all well placed, I liked them all. A very enjoyable read for me.
There was something a bit twee about this story that kept if from being as good as her previous books. Still, a quick and spooky read.
I am so sad to say that I found this one disappointing.
When I saw the cover it was love at first sight and the synopsis was very intriguing. Sadly, that is where my enjoyment ends.
This book is a slow burn. Very slow. I started skimming even before hitting the 20% mark. That is never a good sign. I found because of the slow pace I just couldn't become invested in the *multiple* (too many) characters.
Also, the ending fell completely flat for me. I can suspend disbelief but not to that extent.
Sorry, but no matter how much I enjoyed The End of Temperance Dare couldn't I muster interest enough to finish this book. The story is so... saccharine and honestly boring. I have to admit that I was quite taken with the cover and the blurb intrigued me. But, it's just romance all the way. The murder mystery? Zzzz well it's much more important that the MC had a vision of her romancing the cop that takes over the case.
One sentence summary
A haunting tale with gothic undertones...mesmerizing and superbly written!
The story is told in past and present. The past portion takes place in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s. And even though this story deals with the paranormal, it is not a horror story.
The portion told in the past is the love story of Jess and Addie...both beautiful and tragic. It’s laced with ghosts and hauntings. And it is full of legend, lore and mysterious family secrets. The present deal ...more
When I decided to read spooky books for October, I already had the hauntingly beautiful cover art of Wendy Webb’s Daughters of the Lake in mind. Billed as a Gothic masterpiece with elements of historical fiction and the supernatural, Daughters tells the story of a family with a unique past, interesting local legends and a century old murder.
“It was finally time for the lake to give her up” reads the first sentence of this book. Effortless and evocative, I was disappointed to find that most of th ...more
I'm so glad I chose this book from the Amazon Kindle free book for the month! At first I had my doubts, I usually don't go for haunted houses, ghosts, and things like that, but this is quite a detailed and intense novel. I enjoyed reading the way the author had it sectioned chapter by chapter, going from the past (1901) to the current times - and the main character was a suspect in a murder that, she found, was committed 100 years before when a perfectly preserved body of a victorian woman and h ...more
