A Break Away
A Haunted Lake . . . .
Rachel Madison feels the time has come to retreat to the lake cabin. The vacation her best friend wanted them both to go to before a fire that took Mary Beth's life.
Although Rachel feels Mary Beths' encouragement for her to paint again, the scarred cabin caretaker is proving to be a distraction to paint landscapes. His scratched voice warning for her to go back to the city is proving to be too much of an inspiration on the canvases that she long ago forgot. Until she starts sketching seascapes and people she has never seen. And who are not there.
Daniel Cho is holidaying at the lake again and is very much enjoying the blushes on Rachel's cheeks way too much. He is intrigued by her, wants to protect her. But is it just friendship he is willing to offer, or accept from Rachel? And why does he always have a witty remark at hand to everything weird that Rachel says happened her?
John Cameron tries to warn the two people who rented his lake-side cabins. Usually, his scarred face and scratchy voice puts people off . . .. .This time, it seems, the Lake itself is calling to them. Who will save the beautiful artist or handsome architect from what calls beneath the lake?
And more importantly, who knows what lies there?
Haunted Lake, to me, screamed "Lauralynn Elliott". She has a knack of writing horror that takes the reader back to 'pre-CGI' days. A lake, a mist, a ghost story AND a sound in the night . . . That will always give me goosebumps!!!
Let's face it people, we all know that technology makes ghosts in Hollywood. But in the wee small hours when the real ghosts are up, our technology cannot make us feel as safe as the morning sun!! And this is what Lauralynn Elliiott books convey! Creepy with an extra portion of "I'm glad I have my duvet to protect me!!
