Great book

This is a very good book. the story keeps you interested and wanting more, and it keeps you on the edge of your seat. Even though you can see at times where it's heading you just want to jump in and be part of the story. The character are great and the setting is real...
This is a very good book. the story keeps you interested and wanting more, and it keeps you on the edge of your seat. Even though you can see at times where it's heading you just want to jump in and be part of the story. The character are great and the setting is really good. Kristin has a great way of telling a story that keeps the reader involved and wanting more. She uses a good story line and plot. It is a must have for any reader that enjoys a little mystery, a little drama, and a little romance all in one.

Disappointing use of language

This was my first Kristin Hannah book, and I must say that she is a talented writer, although the ending needed to be lengthened, but I was so disappointed in the vulgar language that was unnecessarily used in the book. The language definitely took away from the enjoyment of the reading, and added nothing at all to the story.

Reading is my escape, but the vulgarity only brought more of what I try to separate myself from. It is sad that a writer with such creative talent had to taint her talent with such useless language. I am sad that "On Mystic Lake" will be my first, and last, Kristin Hannah book.

    a bit disappointing

    would have liked it if it wasn't so predictable. i didn't like that the mother, annie, didn't make any mistakes at being a mom and found it to be too much like a fairy tale.

    Too predictable

    The whole book was too predictable and a little "love conquers all" for me.
