Join us for a discussion of The lake house : a novel by Kate Morton
Summary: Living on her family’s idyllic lakeside estate in Cornwall, England, Alice Edevane is a bright, inquisitive, innocent, and precociously talented sixteen-year-old who loves to write stories. But the mysteries she pens are no match for the one her family is about to endure. One midsummer’s eve, after a beautiful party drawing hundreds of guests to the estate has ended, the Edevanes discover that their youngest child, eleven-month-old Theo, has vanished without a trace. What follows is a tragedy that tears the family apart in ways they never imagined. Decades later, Alice is living in London, having enjoyed a long successful career as an author. Theo’s case has never been solved, though Alice still harbors a suspicion as to the culprit. Miles away, Sadie Sparrow, a young detective in the London police force, is staying at her grandfather.

Suzanne Brockmann‘s new Troubleshooter’s Book “Some Kind of Hero” comes out in July, BUT, we’re getting a sneak peek! Suz (one of the BFL’s favorite authors) joins us for an early discussion of her new book – we’ll have a few hard copies of the ARC (advanced reader copy) at the library to borrow.
Or download it from NetGalley or Edelweiss – galleys might not be available until March, but keep checking back! Learn how to use these amazing online tools to preview your favorite authors’ books!
Although Suz loves all of her books, she’s been known to say that this might be one of her favorites. Come and find out why!
This is also an opportunity to write an early review of Some Kind of Hero – if you’ve never written an online review before, this is your (completely optional but encouraged) chance! Not only does reviewing benefit the author, honest reviews help the reading community.
Registration is required and space is limited.
