A book with a black cover, a window with glass panes showing a lake, fall leaves hanging from a tree, and tree-covered hills with a bluish-gray sky titled Loss Lake by Amber Cowie

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. Iโ€™m ready to get back to being healthy and adapting some new coping methods in my daily routines. ๐Ÿ‘

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 womanโ€™s body is found floating in Loss Lakeโ€”and itโ€™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 Malloryโ€™s unease. Years ago, his own brother was killed in the home Mallory now owns. But that was just a tragic accident. Wasnโ€™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. Itโ€™s time to face her past, the secrets behind the townโ€™s friendly faces, and a reckoning that will shatter the eerie, icy calm of Loss Lake.
