The Souls of Lost Lake by Jaime Jo Wright–Book Review

A ghost story, lost girls, mysteries to solve, a bit of romance–this light read has it all. Set in the town of Tempter’s Creek, a logging town in Wisconsin, the plot moves between Wren, who works at a Bible camp in the present day, and Ava, an orphan suspected of murdering her family in 1930. Both women have secrets in their lives that are gradually unraveled and revealed by the end of the novel.

If you enjoy psychological suspense, this book by a Christy Award-Winning author may be right up your alley. It is well written. with plenty of suspenseful twists. The Christian faith of the protagonists was part of the characterization, but not deeply explored or integral to the plot. However, it was refreshing to read a novel without the questionable language and behavior that characterizes so much fiction today.

VERDICT: 4 STARS. Take it to the beach with you this summer!
