Josh Baker is the owner of the hotel in Lancaster Falls. He's having trouble keeping the hotel afloat since the recession and is doing a little side work for repair money. He's raising his son Harry by himself and doing a great job.
What I liked:
*The mystery continues and is actually heating up.
*I didn't figure out who the killer was, so it kept me intrigued until the end.
*I liked the chemistry between the characters, especially between Josh and Harry. Josh is a great dad and his love for Harry was shown and wholeheartedly felt.
*I really liked that Harry was written as an average teenager but not a troubled teenager.
What I didn't like:
*This book continues the theme of poor punctuation with run-on sentences and overuse of commas. Example: "I knew all about Sawyer becoming captain after the former chief, Peter Sandoval, had retired, a cop who had been part of that group my grandpa called corrupt; Sandoval had been one of the newest of the team but had risen through the ranks quickly as people died or moved on."
***This whole series needed a better editor.***
*In Chapter 3 Sandoval is pleading for his families safety with Lucas and Lucas just walks away. This isn't good behavior from a layperson, must less an FBI agent. I don't care if you think he's a bad guy and your POV is skewed because of someone else's past experience.
*When the killer is revealed their reasoning is beyond bizarre. The reasoning didn't make a bit of sense.
*Josh finds out some chilling information on one of the townspeople and goes to Sawyer. Sawyer takes it seriously but when he can't immediately find said person, he pretty much blows it off. When Josh doesn't allow this to be blown off and hunts down the person, he's treated as a criminal and Sawyer arrests him. Totally bogus! Sawyer knew he didn't have time to commit the crime and there was a witness anyway. This seems like just more drama that wasn't needed.
*The romance was tepid in this book and needed more connection. I think if the series had been only a mystery and stayed focused on that it would have been better.
*The whole story line of Josh's side job was blown out of proportion. In the end even the FBI says it's not illegal. So the blurb for the book stating "not entirely legal work" is just more drama.
*All 3 books it's summer and in a heatwave. We get it, it's hot. I didn't need to read about it in every chapter, in every book. (This is only a very slight exaggeration!)
*All 3 books are written with both MC's that are Bi but really prefer men. It was a little unrealistic IMO.
*All 3 books have the MC's have parent traumas. Just seemed like it was written for the drama factor.
I liked the mystery but I didn't love this series. It's a meh from me. Not sure I can recommend it but can't say stay away either, as others liked it.
Read the blurb carefully, and then if you haven't read either of the first two in the series, you'd better go back and start from the beginning because the mystery of the bodies in the lake begins there and proceeds grimly, and grisly at times, to the warped denouement in this edition.
You can get a hint of who's the culprit here late in this book, but the way R.J. Scott leads up to the revelation does not prepare you for how the culprit is so viciously depraved.
But getting there is so much fun when it involves cover-man FBI Agent Lucas and long-time series character hotel owner Josh, as well as Josh's feisty and brave 13-year-old son Harry. This romance is filled with longings, doubts, anxiety, hope and eventually deep love.
This is a super series with a great cast of characters topped by a brilliant finish. Get it.
Logan comes to the small town to investigate the the skeletal remains dumped in the local reservoir. At his first sight of Josh he is gob smacked by the man.
This was a wonderfully done series with this book being the best. The twists and turns both heartbreaking and bizarre definitely made it a page turner. I want to share everything, but do actually know better. I figured out whodunnit fairly early on but was still surprised by the conclusion. Please read the series in order to enjoy it best.
The relationship between Josh and Lucas definitely takes a back seat to the mystery here. We don’t really get to know Lucas all that well and it seems the relationship could have been given more depth. A potentially interesting aspect of a relationship issue is presented, has a flair up and then just kind of dies out without really addressing the issues raised. There is a tangential mention in the epilogue which also needed further clarification.
There are several other plot points that come up and are kind of left just hanging there. And being that this is the final book in the series it would have been nice to have more of an epilogue with more wrap up on the characters.
As far as the mystery is concerned, regular readers of the genre will have figured out the mystery, probably before this book, but if not fairly shortly into this one. It’s pretty damn surprising that none of our main characters figure it out, especially after several more murders...it’s pretty darn obvious.
But the story is suspenseful and the crisis moment compelling. This trilogy is a good read.

This was Josh & Lucas' story. Josh was the best friend of the missing Casey's brother (story of book 1) Drew (book 2) and police officer Sawyer (also of book 1), who ran the hotel and poker club. With a secret life of illegal activities, he is struggling financially with the impact of the serial killer on his home town of Lancaster Falls and with making choices that whilst he didn't regret, limited his opportunities. FBI man Lucas then coopts Josh's hotel and the two *lock eyes* sorry, meet...
Whilst this story showed the intense heat and claustrophobic nature of small towns (not just America), with the individual characters (there's always the town gossip - though not always female!), the body count, which grew exponentially seemed a tad OTT, there was something missing. Perhaps it was the lack of connection felt to the two MCs, especially FBI man Lucas. Then there was the ending & without spoilering, the involvement of certain characters just seemed a bit daft. Plus the killer, well, whilst I'd kinda guessed, it didn't work so well for me. That said, it was enjoyable & a page turner, with real answers and a clear ending, leaving me not averse to a future catch-up. And boy did you feel for poor Casey.
It’s like a cross between Broadchurch (all the intrigue and conspiracies) and Midsommer Murders(sheer number of bodies)inhabited by men who love men.
In her letter at the end Rj mentions the inspiration for the Lake came from Ladybower Dam and having walked that area when the water levels are low with the church spire standing proud of the water, I can really see the creepiness and atmosphere.
Through this book we meet Lucas newly out of the office and a bit apprehensive, watch him become confident and assertive in his FBI role. We reconnect with Josh, find out he has secrets he’s not proud of. Watch these two fall in love while carnage surrounds them. Is heart warming, and sexy.
They have their ups and downs on the way to their HEA. But it’s worth the journey.
Add in Sawyer and Chris, Logan and Drew, of course Harry plays a big part, the rest of the dwindling community and you have a rollercoaster ride.
The action and suspense are well paced, a serial killer unraveling as the murders add up, hinting at the perpetrator. Lucas and Josh continue towards friendship that moves into lust and ultimately to love. A nail biting unveiling of the killer surprised me, I hadn't a clue it was that character.
I loved all the books and this was a fitting end to the trilogy. So very enjoyable.
