Copper Lake based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Copper Lake is the third book in the Stutter Creek series, but can be read as a stand alone. Suspended from duty and having been left by her husband of 20 or so years, Detective Kendra Dean is spending some alone time at Copper Lake when she stumbles across human remains while hiking and then finds herself pursued by a serial killer who likes to carve map coordinates on his victims' femurs. The reader knows pretty much from the onset who the deranged killer is as the story is told from various points of view, including the killer's. The plot is still suspenseful though, especially when Kendra and the killer end up in the snowy woods more or less chasing each other while Kendra's detective partner, who is in love with her, is searching for her. As in the first book, I didn't really feel the romance in this one either. The most interesting parts where the chapters written from the killer's point of view. It was one of those books that you can read quickly but you'll also forget quickly. Neither bad nor great, it just didn't make any impact on me. Hence, 3 stars. I think it would appeal to readers who like their romances and their language clean but enjoy a mild suspense or crime story. I received a copy via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
