When Charlotte married the wealthy widower Paul, it caused a ripple of gossip in their small lakeside town. They have a charmed life together, despite the cruel whispers about her humble past and his first marriage. But everything starts to unravel when she discovers a young woman’s body floating in the exact same spot where Paul’s first wife tragically drowned.
At first, it seems like a horrific coincidence, but the stranger in the lake is no stranger. Charlotte saw Paul talking to her the day before, even though Paul tells the police he’s never met the woman. His lie exposes cracks in their fragile new marriage, cracks Charlotte is determined to keep from breaking them in two.
As Charlotte uncovers dark mysteries about the man she married, she doesn’t know what to trust—her heart, which knows Paul to be a good man, or her growing suspicion that there’s something he’s hiding in the water.
Stranger in the Lake Spoilers:
Micah killed Paul’s first wife, Katherine, because Paul told her their secret about how Jax had killed Bobby when they were kids. Paul’s mother is the one who killed Sienna, a podcaster looking into Katherine’s murder. She did it because she was worried that Sienna would ruin Paul’s life by exposing the accident that killed Bobby. Charlie was actually there in the trailer park the night Bobby died, and kept piecing bits of the story together until she figured out the truth.
