One Night at the Lake
One Night at the Lake: A Novel | Bethany Chase
5 posts | 3 read | 5 to read
A tragedy on a hot summer night at a lake house forever alters the lives of two best friends--and the man they both love. But the truth isn't as simple as it appears in this intricate novel of love, friendship, betrayal, and forgiveness in the tradition of Miranda Beverly-Whittemore's Bittersweet. Leah Tessaro has been waiting for this moment for a long time: Her boyfriend, Ollie, is taking her to his family's home on Seneca Lake for a week of lazy summer bliss, boating, and barbeque. The couple has been together for four years and Leah is convinced that Ollie is finally going to pop the question. And Leah can't wait to share the joyous news with her best friend, June, who is joining them on their getaway, and whose presence will make everything feel more real. Seven years later, the moment June Kang has been dreading has finally arrived: Her fianc, Ollie, is taking her to his family's lake house. But this is not an ordinary visit to an ordinary place; it is a home haunted by June's long-buried memories of her lost friend, Leah--and the connection that appears to remain between Leah and the man June loves as deep as her sense of foreboding. Alternating between the two women's vibrant voices, One Night at the Lake is a gripping novel that explores a complex tangle of friendship, loyalty, and betrayal, all driving toward one question: What exactly happened to Leah on that hot summer night?

This was a book club pick and I wouldn't have chosen it on my own. I guess it was good for what it is, a beach read romance. I was disappointed in the "mystery", but I enjoyed the alternating narratives. The setting was amazing though. It has more good than bad going for it. At it it's core it was a love story and that's not my preferred genre. If you like those kinds of stories, you will probably like this book.

I loved this book, even though it isn't my go to genre. I recently went on vacation to my hometown in Vermont. While there, I spent almost everyday at four of my favorite lakes. This book takes place in upstate New York (a hop, skip, and a jump away from Vermont) and felt familiar in that sense.

Started this tonight for my #EverythingButSelfHelpBookClub. We meet Tuesday so I should have plenty of time to finish. Library trip tomorrow so my kids can turn in their summer reading. I'm going to TRY not to get any new books, as I already have one on loan from the #LibbyApp and two from the actual library, along with an entire book case of TBR. 🤣🤣

My favorite of hers. Stayed up too late to keep reading. Has a lot going on. Wasn‘t sure if it would all work together or be too much, but it did and wasn‘t. Solidly recommend.
