Book review – The House Across the Lake by Riley Sager

My Review: ⭐️⭐️⭐️/ 5 

Casey Fletcher, is an actress that has escaped to the solitude of her family lakehouse in Vermont after the death of her husband and being fired from her Broadway show. She saves Katherine Royce in the lake (wife of Tom Royce, her neighbor across the lake). They become fast friends after the incident, until Katherine disappears. Casey is convinced it is Tom, but through her alcohol induced state, it is hard to tell who the real culprit is. 

As a big fan of Riley Sager’s previous books, I was disappointed in his newest book. There are supernatural elements to the story, which is different and unexpected. The beginning of the book felt like a different one after the “secret” was revealed and I really could not take the story seriously after that. Also, all the characters were pretty unlikable, especially Casey. This was definitely not my cup of tea.
