Sam (MC) needs a dozen paintings ready in a week for a gallery exhibition, but she’s misplaced her muse. Uncle Pete offers her his remote cabin by the lake in the hopes she can find inspiration to complete her work in time. What she finds is the farthest thing you could imagine from a muse. Yet somehow, the paints are being done, by her hand, but she doesn’t remember doing them.
The one restriction Uncle Pete put on Sam is not to go out on the lake’s dock because it’s in disrepair and there is a danger of falling through the boards. Her first night there, she spots a man kneeling at the end of it looking in the water. She’s supposed to be alone in the middle of the nowhere, and there’s no cell phone reception.
This is a fast- paced read and it will keep you turning the pages. The way Darcy Coates unfolds this story will leave you rubbing the chills from your arms and looking over your shoulder.
In a nutshell, Sam goes to her uncle's cabin for a week to paint and prepare for her first art exhibition, but is distracted by strange happenings and a history of mysterious disappearances near the lake. I don't want to expand on the story any more than that or I'll probably ruin it for someone else, so I'll just say that it had me on the edge of my seat and, as such, I very highly recommend.
