Overview

Spencer Kane, a teenager on vacation with his family at Shadow Lake, Michigan, finds himself in the middle of peculiar, even paranormal situations that affect many of the lake residents. Spencer and his friends unknowingly cause the events to intensify and become more violent, bringing even more danger to those who haven't yet fled the lake in terror.

Excerpt: The voice appeared to come from inside the tunnel. I slowly lowered myself down to the bend to get a better look. I didn't hear anything. I called out "Is anyone down here? Do you need help?"
I turned back to where the flashlight was aimed, and immediately saw two shining circles, resembling eyes glowing from the light, and looking in my direction. Before I could make another move, I heard. "Please help me." "Who's there? I asked again. As I watched the shiny spheres, they began moving closer and closer. I stared at them at first, not certain if the person in trouble was approaching me, or if I should be running for my life from something evil. As the eyes drew closer, I could now make out a figure. It looked strangely familiar. Then I realized the figure was the little girl I had seen in my nightmare. The same one who had disappeared in the lake and hasn't yet been found.

Meet the Author

B. L. Hoffman - Author of the Spencer Kane Adventure Series, and the Inheritance Series. My books are YA appropriate (possibly younger). I remember the simpler times as happier times, and think that's why my first series is based on teen traits that were common when I grew up.

My series' will evolve and incorporate modern technology and relationships, but I hope will always remain enjoyable to every type of reader.

Prior to writing, I worked in the insurance industry for 34 years, and am a Microsoft Certified Professional, which has definitely helped me with some aspects of e-publishing!

I enjoy outdoor activities, such as boating, fishing, traveling and discovering new places.

    Good story

    I couldn't put the book down but you need to read the second book to find the ending to the story. I can't say more on that because I'm going to start that book now.

    Good start of a series

    Right up front the story lets you know that there will be more than one book for this character. It is a very fast paced written book. I was pleased to hear names of towns I knew and grew up in. I wanted to get more of the story when it ended. The second book is not out yet. Bummer. I will have to get at least the second book to see how this adventure ends. I hope you all enjoy it as much as I did.

    Totally recommend

    I really enjoyed this book.. it was the second part to Mystery at Shadow Lake...only shorter.... it seemed like I no more started it and I was finished.. lots of action, tense moments and humor.. left you wanting it to go on and on ... would make a good movie.... and I can't wait to read the next one.

    Would be a Good Youth/Teen Mystery Read

    This book, written in the first person, would be an especially good youth or teen mystery. It keeps you interest and certainly leaves you wanting to get the next installment in the series.

    A good read if you don't wnt to know ending!

    The book ended before the mystery was resolved. If you want to continue the story you must buy another book and I'm not going to keep buying books because the author can't resolve the story in one book. Totally disappointing.

    Golly gosh!

    This should be categorized as a pre-teen novel, written by someone very slightly smarter than average...

    There is no ending to this book!

    Apparently the story is going to be in installments. If you don't like this type of book, don't bother to read it.

    Boring

    This book was boring and too slow paced for me. There are long running conversations between people that do not have anything to do with the mystery. Lots of words but little actual story

    highly recommended

    it was a cute story - Hardee Boys style mystery - the only thing that I didn't like was that it keeps continuing - I like to finish a book & move on - but I guess I will read the third book that comes out Summer of 2012
