About this deal

Alcohol is her coping mechanism -- it makes it possible for her to avoid confronting and dealing with her emotions. I was a bit disappointed in the supernatural element that reared its head in the last half of the book.

Her torrid downward spiral is captured by the media, this is exacerbated by unsympathetic coverage on social media, this leads to her famous movie star mother pushing her to to take up residence in the family home, for the peace and quiet, at the atmospheric Lake Greene in Vermont, under the mistaken belief that alcohol will be harder to obtain there. The duration of the movie seems short, but it’s enough to get sympathy for the (not many) characters. This time it is Casey, a widowed actress who is staying at her family's charming little ramshackle lake house. Obviously this book is incredibly difficult to review without giving away spoilers, so pardon my vagueness.First off, so much of the first half of the book seemed like a rehash of “The Woman In The Window”, I kept waiting for the pace to pick up but that didn’t happen until 60% into the book. And she was the central character in If It Bleeds, a novella in the 2020 collection of the same name.

Maybe, but the sasquatches whom the volcano displaced contributed to the statistics, too, if only out of self-defense. I buddy read The House Across the Lake with my sis Irina, and we ended up having identical thoughts on all the ins and outs of what makes this story so divisive.Riley Sager is the New York Times bestselling author of seven novels, most recently THE HOUSE ACROSS THE LAKE and SURVIVE THE NIGHT. At her mother's insistence, she has retreated to the family's charming house on the shore of Lake Greene in Vermont, built by her great-grandfather in 1878. Casey inherited her husband’s binoculars and using them to spy on her neighbors instead of scrolling through several trashy formats on Netflix which is totally understandable. Casey explains, "I make jokes because it's easier to pretend I'm not feeling what I'm feeling than to actually feel it. Didn’t Katherine tell her she kept paying everything for her husband’s social media app and he wouldn’t let her go without a fight.
