Meh Stranger in the Lake is a psychological thriller about a mysterious murder in a small townCharlotte a twenty something gas station attendant from the wrong side of the tracks finds her prince charming in Paul a 37 year old wealthy architect whose first wife happened to die in a tragic accident Some think Paul murdered his first wife but Charlotte ignored the rumors and fell in love with her dream man The age difference and Charlotte's upbringing fuel the gossip mill of their small town When another woman winds up dead in the same spot Paul’s first wife was found uestions about Paul’s role in the murder have Charlotte uestioning the man she thought she lovedTold from Charlotte’s POV combined with flashbacks from the past this book never grabbed me I kept waiting to be captivated and sadly it never happened I hate to say this because I have loved Kimberly Belle’s other books but I was bored This book dragged and dragged There was little action and a lot of waiting which I usually don’t mind but I wasn’t connecting with the plot or the main character I never got a full feel for Charlotte's character; I couldn't picture her and wasn’t able to get a full sense of her childhood suffering outside of maybe one scene She said all the right things but they didn’t resonateI also didn’t feel the tension or suspense that has played such a heavy role in Belle’s other books The plot reminded me of a few other thrillers I have read over the past year which might be why I was able to identify the murderer and figure out some of the plot twists early on I had high expectations and was expecting something a little original and intriguing This in no way is a bad thriller it just didn't reel me inI received an ARC of this book from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review
