I always know I’m going to get a wild read with Ashley’s books. Her plots are so twisted. You follow false lead after false lead. And, just like with peeling an onion, when you think you’ve got it all figured out, you find another mystery, and peel back another layer. Renee has had a crappy life. Seeing no bright future ahead, she goes to Bradford Lake to end it all. It used to be a place to take the family. Now it’s polluted, and many have ended their lives in it’s waters. The locals call it Suicide lake. But Renee’s attempt is abruptly stopped when she discovers a body. Horrified, all thoughts turn to getting out of there. As she turns to go, she bumps into none other than an old beau, Deputy Cliff Simpson. This chance meeting changes everything as the two are now thrust into the middle of a murder investigation. All of this takes place in the first chapter. And each page pulls you deeper into the mystery. I swear, I barely got over one thing before something else happened. The words flew by and I couldn’t believe some of the secrets that were revealed. Saying this book is full of twists and turns and keeps you on the edge of your seat is just some of how it makes you feel. The plot is like a runaway train. And when I did finally get my answers, I wondered how I missed the clues. So not what I expected. This is a perfect fix for all of you mystery/thriller fans.
Ashley Fontainne is a MUST READ bestselling author, to me, so…when Suicide Lake came up for grabs, I was all over it! I like a little romance with my murder, so Suicide Lake held all the must haves for me. Another hit not to be missed for all mystery/thriller readers. Poor Renee. Such a dark and dismal life. She has finally given up. As I read about her, I thought I might even be tempted to walk out on that beautiful dock, check out the heavily polluted water, think about all the suicides that have happened before…and dived in myself. Ironic that a dead body would save her. The small town must have a “d**k” for a sheriff. Isn’t that mandatory? LOL I get angry for her. It’s not like she doesn’t try. No education, bad situations and bad choices can take control of our lives, don’t you think? I am very suspicious when she is offered a job at the mayor’s office. Ashley Fontainne has a way of stringing me along, letting me become complacent, thinking all is good…then BAM…she kicks my teeth in… my heart beats faster and fear and suspense build to an almost unmanageable level. Her endings are the cherry on top of the sundae. My only complaint…I am so spoiled by her novels that start with action at a fever pitch and go from beginning to end, fell a little flat in Suicide Lake. The first half of the novel seemed a bit slow and not up to her usual standards. Could this be me? Could it be my mood at the time of reading? Does that ever happen to you? Doesn’t matter, Ashley Fontainne and Suicide Lake rocked and I expected no less. I received a copy of Suicide Lake from Ashley Fontainne in return for an honest review.
