Publisher's Summary

Ted and Susan Merchant have been coming to the Pine Lakes resort for nearly 20 years. In that time, their annual getaway has become a tradition, a peaceful week nestled in the picturesque mountains of northern Pennsylvania. For them, it isn’t just a simple vacation spot, but a magical destination where time slows and they become one with nature’s magnificence.

When a freak summer storm forces Ted to lose control of their car and plummet off the road, they’re relieved just to have survived, but relief quickly turns to dread as they find out all too soon they’re not alone.

Strange lights in the forest, whispered warnings, the insurmountable threat of unseen forces lurking in the shadows; nothing could have prepared them for the horrors that lie ahead.

Escaping the wreck is just the beginning.

Is their love enough to save them, or will they become the latest victims on the road to Pine Lakes?

Interesting story, fab narration

So Pine Lakes started a bit slow but developed pretty quickly. I’ll be honest and say I spent probably two-thirds of this story confused and the last third pretty flabbergasted and/or surprised. I couldn’t stop listening though and was surprised how quickly I finished the audiobooks. The storyline is quite different and I liked the characters even if they bugged me a smidge. I was left scratching my head in a few areas but that's why I gave it the 4 stars and not the full 5. The narrator, Joe Hempel, is of course, one of my favorites. He’s always a delightful listen. He did get with Pine Lakes. There’s a lot of creepy, a lot of confusion. Hempel is one of my top favorite horror narrators.

Pine Lakes

Oh my word,what a book!I loved it!It reminded me of a Stephen King book. A couple heading for a holiday go off the road in my neck of the woods! Really! They encounter strange lights and stranger people while walking to find safety. Joe Hempel did a wonderful job narrating. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.'

Meh

It was okay. I wouldn’t say it was horror though, more adventure or fantasy. It was entertaining enough to get me through but I am not a fantasy fan so everytime there was mention of “magic” as the answer to why something was happening I just rolled my eyes and tried to ignore it. I didn’t love the main characters, they behaved in ways that I didn’t really agree with. I did like Julie. There are still a lot of unanswered questions at the end of this, and certain mysteries are never properly explained. I didn’t hate it, and I got to the end, but I doubt I’ll listen to it again anytime soon.
