1: The Secrets of Lake Road
My first book this year was The Secrets of Lake Road by Karen Katchur. I don't remember where I heard of this book, probably on Goodreads. The plot premise was great, which was what drew me in. It was clearly written by a beginning writer, but it was an engaging story. I gave it 2 stars on Goodreads because I felt like it needed polishing and at least a few more chapters. The PG13 sex scene felt like it was added in to cover all the bases, although I did get that she was trying to show the dysfunctional nature of the relationship. I would like to have seen a bit more development of the Johnny character or his elimination entirely; the in-between didn't work for me.
