More About Summit Lake by Charlie Donlea
 
 
 
Overview
Set in a small, picturesque North Carolina town, Charlie Donlea s suspenseful debut novel tells the haunting story of a murdered law school student, the reporter assigned to her story and the intimate connection that comes when the living walk in the footsteps of the dead.
No suspects. No persons of interest. Just a girl who was alive one day and dead the next.
Some places seem too beautiful to be touched by horror. Summit Lake, nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains, is that kind of place, with charming stilt houses dotted along the pristine water. But two weeks ago, Becca Eckersley, a first-year law student, was brutally murdered in one of those houses. The daughter of a powerful attorney, Becca was hard-working, accomplished, and ambitious. Now, while the town reels with grief and shocked residents gather to share their theories, the police are baffled.
At first, investigative reporter Kelsey Castle thinks of the assignment as a fluff piece. But the savagery of the crime, and the determined efforts to keep the case quiet, all hint at something far more than a random attack by a stranger. As Kelsey digs deeper, pushing on despite danger and warnings, she feels a growing connection to the dead girl. And the more she learns about Becca s friendships, her love life and the secrets she was keeping the more convinced she becomes that learning the truth about Becca could be the key to overcoming her own dark past
