    One thought on “Dark Lake”

    1. 2.5 stars Fiction MysteryFirst off, let me start by saying that mystery stories are not my typical genre of choice Mainly because I feel that the suspense of the story loses some of it s grip on the reader when you cannot read the entire book in one sitting That is what happened to me with this novel.Allie Armington heads out to the Holden Compound to visit her family when she comes across a murder scene Soon this former attorney turned private investigator finds herself on a trip that is much d [...]

    2. This was a giveaway.I did not care for this book or the writing style of the author It was easy enough to read but the writing and the characters were really annoying The main character constantly asking herself several stupid questions really got on my last nerve Example What am I doing I want to find out why there were lights in the woods last night, but am I being crazy by wandering around alone mere days after my aunt was murdered Hmm let me think about it What do you think Sherlock It was l [...]

    6. Allie Armington is a repeating character in a series written by Louise Gaylord I have never read one of the series books and that didn t detract from my enjoyment of the story, so this book could be read without reading others in the series, but it did make me want to read of the books.Allie is invited to spend the 4th of July weekend at her aunt Sallie s house a vacation cottage that Allie had spent many summers in as a child She is full of fond memories and adores her aunt, who was of a moth [...]

    7. My Take Okay sooooooI thought this was a pretty good book I m the kind of person that likes to guess who done it while reading a mystery This book kept me guessing, I never knew what action would come next and I loved that I also didn t figure out the killer until the very end when it was told to me It had good forshadowing without giving away too many future plot points I especially liked how everything was tied together at the end.There were a lot of characters in this novel but i never got co [...]

    8. Dark Lake by Louise Gaylord 4 STARSI did not guess who the murder was till the end This is an Allie Armington mystery This is her first mystery that I have read and I don t think it will be the last one I read.The only problem is they kept talking about an accident that got Allie escorted away from the lake years ago but not enough information on that but I guess that could be covered in other books.Allie has not been back to her family cabin for fifteen years Her cousin and Aunt are waiting fo [...]

    13. This was the first of the Allie Armington books I ve read, and it definitely drew me in right away The action was very well paced and I really enjoyed the characters They had a bit of a Nancy Drew feel, but with a much adult and realistic feel to it.There were a few loose ends that I m left wondering about, but I m wondering if, because this is part of a series, those questions will be answered in a later book Along the same vein of being just one in a series, having little pieces of her histor [...]

    14. When Allie arrives at the summerhouse summoned by her cousin Arlene, she is quite surprised to find no one there Her Aunt Sallie s car is is out front so she goes in search of someone, when she looks down at the lake she sees her aunt laying on the sand at water s age.I found this book to be well written with interesting characters This is the first book in the Allie Armington Mystery series and I hope to read .Thanks to Net Galley and Little Moose Press.

    15. First, this book is number 4 in a series and is not marked on as so I thought this book was good, not great I don t think the story, although, I enjoyed it was something that really stood out as a memorable book for me I would go back and read the others in the series for challenges as they were needed, but this was not an author that stood out as one that I would go out of my way to read It just wasn t memorable enough.

    16. This book isn t deep or intriguing I found the name dropping of the businesses in Old Forge and Inlet forced and over done No author mentions every specific name of businesses in a book It was too much.

    17. The best part of this book was the location The characters were not particularly memorable and I did not feel invested in them So I didn t much care how the story turned out.

    18. A cozy mystery of the first degree Wonderful Plan to stay put and enjoy the latest in Ms Gaylord s series
