I found a new beach read for people who like many of the same things that I do: the Great Lakes, ghost stories, Victorian mansions, mythology, romances, murder mysteries.
Here’s the book that I just discovered, and read: Daughters of the Lake, by Wendy Webb.
In the first chapter, a woman’s body washes up on a Lake Superior beach.
Kate, the woman whose family discovers this body, dreamed about this woman prior to the discovery. Kate tries to process the discovery. She drives to her family’s inherited Victorian mansion which her cousin turned into an inn and bar. This mansion also sits on a shore of Lake Superior. Evev better, this mansion is haunted.
We get to meet a lot of neat characters, such as Kate’s cousin Simon and his partner Jonathan. Also, Kate meets a hot cop whom the author compares to Idris Elba.
I discovered that this author also wrote several other books that also take place on the shores of Lake Superior. Potential beach reads for next summer’s trips to the Great Lakes? Sure.
I have posted above a photo that I took during one of my own trips to Lake Superior. Also, here’s another blog post that I wrote about Lake Superior.
