Sara Brooke's New Horror Novel Called Gripping

Title - Still Lake
Author -  Sara Brooke
Website link -
Genre - Horror
ASIN: B0086608EI
Available for Kindle

Reviewed by Mallory originally for Mallory Heart's Reviews

With a gripping reader's hook as powerful as a grappling hook-violent, graphic, and enticing-this novel is taut, well-plotted, and well-characterised. The backstory is interwoven subtly, never detracting nor distracting from the "current" events of the novel: rather, it adds to the escalating suspense and the reader will be wondering, "what's happening now?" I was enraptured and raced through the pages, simply to find out the answers to that question! At the end, also, I was left pondering: what if these events could occur in actuality? That's not an unlikely possibility, and it is one that makes this novel very "current" and very frightening.
