Book Review: The Dark Lake by Sarah Bailey (9781538759929)

51IhKtKO55LIt’s amazing what you can keep buried when you want to.

A body is found in the small Aussie town of Smithson.  She was Rosalind Ryan, a local drama teacher and pregnant.  Detective Sergeant Gemma Woodstock is assigned the case with her partner, Detective Sergeant Felix McKinnon.  The detectives find out this is not a cut and dried case, and how is Gemma’s history with her old schoolmate, Rosalind, connected to the case?  There are a lot of secrets to be discovered, and Gemma and Felix have a lot to lose if their affair is one of them.

There a lot of twists and turns in this story and several characters are introduced.   It is a bit long and drawn out in that I knew who the killer was early on and, in my opinion, it could have been wrapped up then.  The title of the book is fitting as the story is dark throughout and many of the characters have dark secrets.  It was a mediocre story at best.

Thank you to Ms. Bailey, Grand Central Publishing, and NetGalley for giving me the opportunity to review this book.
