Firstly I wish to thank Bloodhound Books and Emma Welton for inviting me on the Blog Tour for LOST IN THE LAKE by A. J. Waines
She came at first for answers…now she’s back for you
Amateur viola player Rosie Chandler is the sole survivor of a crash which sends a group of musicians plunging into a lake. Convinced the accident was deliberate, but unable to recall what happened, she is determined to recover her lost memories and seeks out clinical psychologist, Dr Samantha Willerby.
But Rosie is hiding something…
Sam is immediately drawn to the tragic Rosie and as she helps her piece the fragments together, the police find disturbing new evidence which raises further questions. Why is Rosie so desperate to recover her worthless viola?
When Rosie insists they return to the lake to relive the fatal incident, the truth about Rosie finally emerges. Now Sam is the one seriously out of her depth…
HERE ARE MY THOUGHTS AND REVIEW
This is the second outing for Dr. Samantha Willerby and it just confirmed in my mind that someone who wants to be a clinical psychologist is just pure crazy. Yes ok they help people to deal with every day struggles, which is brilliant but then ……….. well read for yourself as to see what I mean.
A quartet are on their way to perform at a 25th wedding anniversary but Rosie, who is bouncing around in the back of the van and not wearing a seat belt feels that there is something very wrong. Before she really has time to think the van has plunged in the water and she is fighting to save her life, then nothing as she blanks out.
Rosie is the only survivor of this horrendous crash and has no really memory of events surrounding it so she is referred to Samantha Willerby, a clinical psychologist who becomes fascinated with the case. The story is then told through alternating chapters between these two main characters and how they see the relationship between them develop besides finding out about the crash.
This is a tense and edgy story from the start but oh my take one unstable young lady and a psychologist that has issues herself from the previous case and you have a belter. It was intriguing to be in the mind of both of these women both seeing the relationship very differently. There is far more to Rosie than the crash as Sam delves back further into her childhood years. Rules are broken and confidences shattered.
There is a gradual build as the story of both women unfolds and at times it feels like you are walking on egg shells where the slightest crack will have devastating results and oops there it goes!
