The Spirit of Shy Moon Lake
by Reina Lisa Menasche

Overview


The remote mountain town of Shy Moon Lake looks like just the place for Jess to begin a new life with her young son and brand-new husband. But the ghosts of the past are persistent, especially for a woman burdened with a photographic memory. Buried secrets, the scars of abandonment, the nightmares of rejection, are not long forgotten or easily ignored.

Description


Single mom Jess McCortney is ready for a fresh start. The enchanting, beachside cottage on the shore of idyllic Shy Moon Lake looks like just the place to begin a new life with her young son and brand-new husband. But the ghosts of the past will not be ignored, especially for a woman burdened with a photographic memory. Buried secrets, the scars of abandonment, the nightmares of rejection, are not long forgotten or easily ignored. Just like Shy Moon Lake. Warnings of a bottomless lake that refuses to give up its victims. A beautiful, deserted beach, where even the birds refuse to swim. Furtive whispers of blood rituals, lost lovers, and phantom islands. The locals fear the lake's dark secrets and will do anything to protect them – because they know you don't want to make her angry. Jess's past and the mysteries of the lake are now on a collision course. She fears she is losing her sanity, her family, maybe her life. But the call of the lake is seductive. The water is cool and so inviting. Jess is drowning in the guilt of her past, and Shy Moon Lake does not forgive the guilty. Or forget.
