Daughters of the LakeThe ghosts of the past come calling in a spellbinding heart stopper from the ueen of the Northern GothicAfter the end of her marriage Kate Granger has retreated to her parents' home on Lake Superior to pull herself together only to discover the body of a murdered woman washed into the shallows Tucked in the folds of the woman's curiously vintage gown is an infant as cold and at peace as its mother No one can identify the woman Except for Kate She's seen her before In her dreamsOne hundred years ago a love story ended in tragedy its mysteries left unsolved It's time for the lake to give up its secrets As each mystery unravels it pulls Kate deeper into the eddy of a haunting folktale that has been handed down in whispers over generations Now it's Kate's turn to listenAs the drowned woman reaches out from the grave Kate reaches back They must come together if only in dreams to right the sinister wrongs of the pastCover design by Damon Freema As someone who has read and liked all of Wendy Webb's previous books I have had my eye on this one for months waiting for the November release date with great anticipation When I discovered that it was a First Reads selection I didn't even need to look at the other titles to know that this would be my choice Sadly it did not live up to the standard of her previous books and was for me a fine free read but not worthy of my hard earned cash The story was predictable like an early Lifetime scary movie The characters acted pretty much as they were expected to from the very beginning The ending tied a nice little bow around everything but it was way too neat Much of the writing was repetitive For instance one of the characters is undulated by the water over and over and over Without saying too much I will say that the use of a dream seuence feels like a cop out I can deal with one or two strategically placed dreams in this kind of story where one expects to suspend a certain amount of belief but using a dream for almost the entire exposition of one of the two major plots seems like cheating The characters were not fleshed out and really it felt like there wasn't much need for any of the present day people to be in the story except for Kate and Simon who just sat around and talked to each other all the time Speaking of Simon that poor guy must spend a lot of time in the bathroom because he never seems to do anything but make drinks an activity he has plenty of time to do because there conveniently are never any guests at his inn I am normally a Wendy Webb fan so I don't want to be overly critical However this book reads like the one she had to write to meet her obligation to her publishers rather than something she had any true inspiration to create Neither she nor her editors seemed to have much time to tweak it either If you are new to Wendy Webb don't do this one first Anybody who has seen a couple of horror flicks will not find anything new here
