Seriously, #TGIF! This week has pushed me physically to my limits and I just began using my #pelotonbike to release tension and stress as well as increase my endurance and strength. I’m ready to get back to being healthy and adapting some new coping methods in my daily routines. πŸ‘

Thank you to @booksparks for my next #Fall2020Stacks read!

This novel follows Mallory, a widow of only two months whose made the decision to pack up and move on with her life. Impulsively purchasing a house nestled in the northern mountains, she can escape her grief, guilt, and pain. But the day Mallory arrives, death follows her, lapping just outside her door. A woman’s body is found floating in Loss Lakeβ€”and it’s not the first death on these shores. Locals talk about a monster in the depth with an almost disturbing reverence.

Sergeant Joel Benson understands Mallory’s unease. Years ago, his own brother was killed in the home Mallory now owns. But that was just a tragic accident. Wasn’t it? The more Mallory investigates, the more fearful she becomes. Maybe there are monsters in McNamara. Maybe some have followed her there.

As a winter storm bears down, the refuge Mallory sought has become a trap. It’s time to face her past, the secrets behind the town’s friendly faces, and a reckoning that will shatter the eerie, icy calm of Loss Lake.
