LADY IN THE LAKE by Laura Lippman

Lady in the Lake

It’s 1964 when Cleo Sherwood disappears. It’s been eight months and no one is looking for her. Cleo was out to find a better life for her and her sons. Cleo wishes Maddie would stop looking for her.

There was a voice for every character. I wasn’t sure at first if Cleo was the Lady in the Lake. New characters kept showing up and got their own chapters. It was confusing.

The story centers around Cleo’s voice and Maddie’s voice. Maddie is married to a rich man. She has a lot of secrets and while she talks a lot to herself, we have no idea what is behind her character.

I got bored about halfway through. There was nothing to like or dislike. It was just boring. And that is not what I would expect from the author. I will definitely be reading more of her.

    1. It’s sort of hit and miss with her.

  3. I would not expect that either, but every book of hers can’t be a winner. Nice, honest review.

  4. I felt the same way about this. In fact, your post made me remember that I haven’t finished.
