Stillhouse Lake
Stillhouse Lake | Rachel Caine
Gina Royal is the definition of average—a shy Midwestern housewife with a happy marriage and two adorable children. But when a car accident reveals her husband’s secret life as a serial killer, she must remake herself as Gwen Proctor—the ultimate warrior mom. With her ex now in prison, Gwen has finally found refuge in a new home on remote Stillhouse Lake. Though still the target of stalkers and Internet trolls who think she had something to do with her husband’s crimes, Gwen dares to think her kids can finally grow up in peace. But just when she’s starting to feel at ease in her new identity, a body turns up in the lake—and threatening letters start arriving from an all-too-familiar address. Gwen Proctor must keep friends close and enemies at bay to avoid being exposed—or watch her kids fall victim to a killer who takes pleasure in tormenting her. One thing is certain: she’s learned how to fight evil. And she’ll never stop.

Generally a poor showing for this #24in48 - I haven‘t done a single challenge orfinished a book yet... but I did sneak in a bit of this thriller while the kids splashed in their pool this morning.

Samplergal I‘m amazed with two small children you can read four hours. I bow down to you. ❤️❤️❤️ 1d

I am enjoying the strong female protagonist in this thriller. Gina is the spouse of a serial killer who needs to protect her kids after her husband is sent to prison. I am 2/3 finished and so far it is a solid thriller. Duke needs to get off my reading chair. Lol

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I don‘t read too many mysteries/suspense books because I always manage to figure them out. This was no exception. Despite that, I still enjoyed this book and its characters. I doubt I continue with the series, but it does leave you wanting more.

I don't like thrillers...but my book club chose this (over Educated by Tara Westover, wtf!). I WOULD give this a straight-up PAN, but I guess it wouldn't be bad if you like reading thrillers? It just had zero substance for me and felt like a waste of precious reading time.

At least it was free through Prime Reading. 🤷‍♀️

This was decent, but I knew who all the players were going to be and I‘m not too good at guessing plot twists. A lot of repetition of the main character‘s thoughts. Yes, she‘s doing her best to be a good mom and a bad-ass. I get it. Maybe I‘ve spent too much time around sociopaths and their victims for this genre to be enjoyable. If thrillers are your jam, read it. 3/5

Reading with my best reading buddy (he is snoring). Trying to feel distracted and not mad at life right now. I just paid off my medical bills to get hit with my car needing about $3000 worth of repairs before I can get my inspection sticker. Looks like I will be car shopping, 🤢 The start of the year feels very bumpy and rough. Hoping I am getting it all out of the way so the rest of the year can be better. Much love to you beautiful people.

KristenDuck I was seriously in the same boat last year and can relate to feeling down. Just remember it‘s only temporary and it just means the year can only get better!! Positive thoughts sent your way. 4mo

Most of this thriller worked for me until a key moment when the heroine made a decision so stupid I stopped caring whether she made it or not.

But goodness help me, I'm invested enough to read the sequel. So I guess the author knows what she's doing.

I read this book last year and I highly highly enjoyed it. I love the whole series and I‘m excitedly waiting for the next book! I‘m a kindle unlimited member so I was able to listen and read for “free” (I pay 9.99 monthly for membership). For friends who are not KU members and are interested in this book it‘s only $1.99 right now.

A bit slow getting into this one, but hard to put down once you get a few chapters in. Such a great book.

I really like how it gets into the head of the family of those horrible killers. That they don‘t know what their husbands/wives/children did, that they are victims as well, though perhaps not as well known or thought about.

Gina Royal is your average woman. She has a nice house, a husband, & two kids, until a gruesome secret is revealed. Gina's husband is a serial killer & she had no idea. Even though her now ex-husband is in prison, Gina is still in hiding from stalkers & internet trolls. She moves to a lakehouse & changes her name, but then a body is found in the lake & threatening letters show up.

This book spoke to one of my deepest fears of falling in love with someone who happens to be a serial killer. (Thanks, ID Channel, Who the bleep did I marry?) Cause we‘ve all seen that woman and judged her. In the beginning, a drunk driver smashes into a house, and reveals to Gina Royal a dead body hanging in the garage her husband never lets anyone into. Fast forward a couple of years and 8 identities later, Gwen Proctor lives with her 2 👇🏼

Reggie children trying to stake out some sort of normal and safe life.... that is until the body at the lake shows up. This was great. I got real invested in Gwen and was taken for quite an emotional ride. Total pick. 12mo

The cringe is so bad it hurts. DNF @ 68%. Caine should leave serial killers to the authors who actually do research instead of spending hours on tumblr learning all the current buzz words. It‘s literally a mad lib of every current buzz wordy trend out there. I feel embarrassed for her. Fuck dude, Bella Swan had more common sense and she got thrown out a fucking window.
