It was a dream come true.
Buying a run-down farm in a beautiful Vermont town is the start of a new life for Sophie Davis. She moves her mother, Grace, and her half sister, Marty, out of the city, hoping the change will help both women sort out their complicated lives. And for Sophie, turning Stonegate Farm into a quaint country inn is the fulfillment of a lifelong dream. She doesn’t even mind that the farm was the scene of a grisly multiple murder 20 years earlier….
Then a stranger comes to town.
When a stranger moves in next to the farm, Sophie believes the sense of peace she has built for herself and her family is being threatened. Because there’s something different about John Smith. It’s clear he’s keeping secrets…and that he’s come to Colby, Vermont, for a reason. And that reason has something to do with Sophie and Stonegate Farm.
Now her dream is becoming a nightmare.
Who is John Smith? Why does his very presence make Sophie feel so completely out of control? And why is she beginning to suspect that this mysterious stranger will put in jeopardy everything she’s dreamed of—maybe even her own life?
I love AS's "House of Rohan" and "Ice"series so I gave this a try. Not that great. The two main characters would never be attracted to each other or be together in anything but a romance novel. I kept reading because at least Griffin was sexy with his obnoxiousness. Sophie was just plain obnoxious and irritating. The story was predictable and disappointing.

Would you listen to Still Lake again? Why?
Anne Stuart is always good for light adventure, some sex, some intrigue. However, I really wish that book publishers would realize that if they want people to buy audiobooks (much more expensive), they need to find high quality readers. This reader sounds quite young, not really right for the book, but not awful, but she has problems with pronunciation;<br/>ie. jag-wire for jaguar, woof for wolf. This kind of thing really matters to making a book listeneable.<br/>

Would you consider the audio edition of Still Lake to be better than the print version?
No, the narration was terrible.
What did you like best about this story?
The setting, the relationship between the hero and heroine, and how real the heroine seemed.
Would you be willing to try another one of Marie Ellis’s performances?
Possibly. It would have to be a book I'm really interested in.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
Secrets last forever.
Any additional comments?
Not Anne Stuart's best, but still enjoyable except for the wooden narration.

I love Anne Stuarts books, but NOT this one. I had to force myself to keep listening. I could not relate with the heroine whatsoever with her old fashion behavior, she would have been better suited as a 40+yr old not 30yr character. the villain was painfully obvious, and several times I face-palmed at the idiotic situations going on. narrator made it all worse with her emotionless voice. skip it
