Publisher's Summary

Suffering from writer's block, novelist Rachel Ames escapes to a lake cabin to calm her mind and regain a sense of herself. The location is perfect. Isolated. Beautiful. Inspiring. It even comes with a good-looking landlord who shows an interest in her. But she can't shake the sense that something terrible has followed her to the lake, something just beyond her consciousness, something out on the edge where the sounds of a raging fire and sirens linger whenever she slows down to listen. Determined to make the cabin work, she tries to settle in and give her new life a chance. But when strange things begin to happen around her, she wonders if she's made a terrible mistake. As the darkness that's followed her manifests itself in inexplicable ways, her concept of reality is stretched thin and she realizes nothing at the lake is what it seems. As she fights to survive with her sanity intact, she understands too late that the location she's chosen for herself is far from perfect.

    "A deeply disturbing delight"

    I loved everything about this perfectly paced novella. I'd leave it at that, but a review requires at least fifteen words.

    Story
    "The ending unfortunately felt like patchwork"

    I made it through to the end because I needed to piece the story together. I was interested enough and needed the ending to help tie the story together. It fell apart for me about 3 -4 chapters near the end. Then there was an attempt to pull it together but sadly I was disappointed. I love a good psychological suspense /horror story but this fell a bit flat.

    "Excellent! 5 stars!"

    Loved this story! It even made me cry! Not horror in a scary sense. This is a journey into tragedy, love, loss and the frailty of being human.

    "wow!!! Just wow"

    I am not going to explain any of this book to you because I do not want to ruin anything.... And I must say that I usually shy away from audio books that are less than 8 hours long.... But this book is definitely worth your time and I can guarantee you it has one of the greatest endings will ever read.... One of my top 10 favorite books now.... Jeff Gunhaus is a truly great author
