Before we begin this review, we want to thank Netgalley for allowing us to review The Lake of Lost Girls by Katherine Greene in advance. This book was written under the pseudonym of author friends A. Meredith Walters and Claire C. Riley. It is their second book.

I will be honest here. This is my first thriller. I am super impressed. It was an incredible book. What was interesting was that this book talks about student-teacher relationships and mental health.

The genres for this book include Thriller, Crime, Suspense Thriller, Fiction and Mystery.

What makes The Lake of Lost Girls such a fascinating read is that it jumps between Lindsey and Jessica Fadley’s perspectives in two different periods. There are two other points of view that occur right towards the end. It also focuses on a podcast that has become viral, which leads the protagonist, Lindsey to look deeper at her sister’s case.

Jessica Fadley Goes Missing

Jessica is the victim of a disappearance who vanishes in the space of ten seconds while celebrating Lindsey’s sixth birthday. Lindsey, at age 30, begins her own investigation into her sister’s disappearance when bones are found at a local lake. Her sister’s disappearance is not the only one that is being investigated; other women have disappeared in the same area in a similar timeframe.

Lindsey is befriended by a journalist investigating the disappearances since he entered the profession. She starts off closed off because, like many other reporters, she feels he is exploiting her family’s story for a paycheck. However, it becomes to much deeper as the story goes on.

Ryan McKay, the reporter, has his own secrets including his involvement with Jess during their university years.

The great part about this book is that it is hinted at early on that many of the components will link up the further you travel through the story.

The scary part about The Lake of Lost Girls is that there are three male suspects and the story throws so many curveballs to make you question whether or not these men were involved in the crimes. The ending is so good! Despite this post starting with, “Spoilers Ahead!”, we won’t spoil the ending.

We want to say thank you to Netgalley for this Advanced Reading Copy. A big thank you to Katherine Greene (Meredith and Claire) for the follow on Instagram!
