The Lakehouse


Who is looking for a good mystery? If you are than The Lakehouse is perfect for you! Set in a small town in New England, this is the story of the gritty underbelly of small town suburbia. How, in a town where nobody locks their doors and the Sheriff is the only full time employee of the police departments, secrets run wild. And in small towns, it’s even harder to not let public opinion interfere with your own ideas.

Clifford does a fantastic job of weaving together a seamless plot, and there were multiple red herrings that really helped to increase the suspense of the story. Clifford’s writing is excellent and the monty crew of characters is prefect for this story. I really enjoyed getting to know each character, and understanding what drove them to do the things they do, was intriguing for me.

It’s hard to get too into the plot without giving away keep aspects of the story. Just know that this was a fabulous story and I can’t wait for more from Clifford.

This book comes out September 15th, make sure to pick it up!
