THE SECRET BY THE LAKE LOUISE DOUGLAS

A FAMILY TRAGEDY.

Amy’s always felt like something’s been missing in her life. When a tragedy forces the family she works for as a nanny to retreat to a small lakeside cottage, she realises she cannot leave them now.

A SISTER’S SECRET.

But Amy finds something unsettling about the cottage by the lake. This is where the children’s mother spent her childhood – and the place where her sister disappeared mysteriously at just seventeen.

A WEB OF LIES.

Soon Amy becomes tangled in the missing sister’s story as dark truths begin rising to the surface. But can Amy unlock the secrets of the past before they repeat themselves? 

MY REVIEW

Do you believe in real ghost? I am a huge fan of Louise Douglas and have read all of her books.  The story opens up with a housemaid that has stolen a Ruby heart-shaped necklace on a gold chain that was worth a hundred guineas. The heart-shaped pendant turns up years later. Amy who had worked in an children’s home for just four months is forced to leave to a small lakeside cottage when Amy receives a letter saying that Julia’s husband Alain had died. While Amy is staying at the Reservoir Cottage she finds that some ghostly strange things are going on. This is the Victorian Cottage that the children’s mother spent her childhood and it is the place where her sister Caroline died as a teenager. Young Viviane did first have Emily as an imaginary friend, but now she her dead aunt Caroline and talks to her. Ghostly things happen while Amy is at the cottage by the lake.
