Join the Adventure in “The Secret By The Lake” Today!

Good day, dear readers!

It has been an amazingly busy couple of weeks! I have said before, blink, and time flies, but it’s true. Can you believe that we are creeping toward April already!? Our weather has been up and down, leaving some days where being outside is enjoyable and others where it is so cold, you hide inside. I love having books to rely on, keeping me company on days I do not feel like leaving the house.

Our adventure this month has kept us giggling with An Elderly Lady Is Up To No Good by Helene Tursten. I am enjoying the book, and I hope that ya’ll are as well. Now and then, we need a good book that keeps our mood light and adds a little more laughter into the day.

In April, we will be reading, The Secret By The Lake by Louise Douglas. I have seen some great reviews on this book, and I hope that it will be one that we enjoy reading together! I love hearing your thoughts on our choices, and you can always send me your suggestions or opinions on books to mmsbookclub@mymilitarysavings.com.

Here is to the coming of spring and some new book adventures coming our way! Grab a copy of our book from your local library, and let’s get reading!

The Secret By The Lake Goodreads Blurb

Amy’s always felt like something’s been missing in her life, but as a nanny for the Laurent family – Julia, Alain, Viviane – she feels complete.

So Amy wouldn’t think of leaving them when a sudden tragedy forces them to move from France to the small lakeside cottage in the isolated Somerset village where Julia grew up.
But there’s something strange about the cottage by the lake. This is where Julia spent her childhood. But she used to have an older sister, Caroline, whom she rarely speaks about…

Who disappeared at just seventeen… Who has a secret the whole village wants kept hidden for ever…

Louise Douglas’s beautifully crafted and haunting page-turner will hold you in its grip.
