The Woman in the Lake
The Woman in the Lake - Nicola Cornick
Snakes and Ladders roll #2- Published in 2019
 
In London, 1765 the philandering and abusive Lord Gerard becomes so enraged at his wife, Lady Isabella that he commissions a beautiful gold gown meant to kill her.  When his plan fails, Lord Gerard enlists his Moonraker pal and Lady Isabella's maid, Constance to destroy the dress.  However, both Lady Isabella and Constance become so enraptured with the dress that the task is never completed.  Lady Isabella decides to escape the city and convalesce in Lydiard, away from her husband.  The dress calls to her though, possessing Lady Isabella.  In 2004, Fenella Brightwell takes a school trip to Lydiard.  Fen has kleptomania tendencies and when she walks into a small room at Lydiard, she sees a drunken man in time period clothing staring at a golden dress.  Fen is spooked, but before she goes the golden dress calls out to her- take me.  Years later, Fen is out of an abusive relationship and has created a stable life for herself.  Then, she gets a package in the mail. The golden dress has made its way back to her life with a strange message- danger.  
 
The Woman in the Lake is an enchanting dual-time mystery that pulled me into the story just as the dress made its way into the character's lives.  From the beginning I was engrossed with the puzzle of who the woman in the lake was and the importance of the dress.  The narrative switched between Isabella, Constance and Fen's point of view tying together their experiences with the pull of the golden dress.  While the dress enhanced the worst traits in all of the woman, the dress also seemed to make it possible for the women to rid themselves of an even bigger problem, the men in the lives.  As Fen investigated the history of the dress, the similarities between herself and Isabella became apparent with a love of art and a knack for falling for abusive men.  Constance was a very interesting character to me as it was not apparent as to where her loyalties lied, however, she was definitely the most clever.  The golden dress was a character in itself; as I read about the qualities of the dress, I felt possessed myself as I felt the need to continue to read in order to unravel its mystery. I would have loved to know how exactly the power was created.  Overall, a captivating story mixing history, mystery and a touch of magic.  
 
This book was received for free in return for an honest review.

The Secret by the Lake

This novel has got quite a lot of negative reviews and quite a lot of positive reviews all over the world wide web, probably because of the strange mystery and because of the weird story line that's within it, but what truly convinced me to give it a chance was the wonderful, beautiful, and mysterious cover. And I am definitely not sorry for giving it a chance, for it was quite a welcome change for me after finishing the series of Robert Hunter novels. I'll say this: If you are a fan of thriller novels with strange mysteries and weird story lines that eventually lead to satisfying or not so satisfying conclusion, and if you love and are attracted by the covers as beautiful and as wonderful, and as mysterious as this one  is, then this mystery thriller novel is pretty much perfect for you and your reading pleasure. That said, if you are not, then I simply suggest for you to stay away from it, because you may end up being very disappointed and cheated in a way by its not as surprising and predictable ending.
