"An exciting romantic suspense novel"
Deciding she needed a change from her complex Manhattan
lifestyle, advice newspaper columnist Sophie Davis
relocates to Colby, Vermont where she plans to run an inn.
The poor man's Martha Stewart takes her seemingly senile
mother and her raging hormonal teenage half sister with her.
To Sophie's chagrin, as she wants no nearby neighbors, John
Smith moves into a nearby cabin that has not been used in
six years. John is actually Thomas Griffin who was
convicted of murdering three teenage girls twenty years
ago, but was freed five years later on a technicality.
Thomas has come back to Colby to learn what really happened
on that night in which he remembers nothing. As John and
Sophie begin to fall in love, an eerily similar homicide
similar to those of past occurs just two weeks before the
grand opening of Stonegate Farm.
STILL LAKE is an exciting romantic suspense novel starring
intriguing lead characters struggling with problems that
leave both not welcoming love into their respective lives.
Though Sophie is a bit too responsible, she represents the
sandwich generation with troubles from her senior and her
younger that surround her. Thomas is a wonderfully
bewildered protagonist who does not know if he committed
those murders. The support cast provides depth by enabling
the audience to better understand what makes Thomas and
Sophie tick as well as adding suspense to Anne Stuart's
fine contemporary tale.
