"Captivating and compelling . . . This is the perfect book to slip into your weekend bag for your own trip to the lake this summer." - Jill Santopolo, New York Times bestselling author of The Light We Lost 


About the Book:

A tragedy on a hot summer night at a lake house forever alters the lives of two best friends - and the man they both love. But the truth isn't as simple as it appears in this intricate novel of love, friendship, betrayal, and forgiveness.

Leah has been waiting for this moment a long time: Her boyfriend, Ollie, is taking her to his family's home on Seneca Lake for a week of lazy summer bliss, boating, and barbeque. The couple have been together four years, and Leah is convinced that Ollie is finally going to pop the question. Leah can't wait to share the joyous news with her best friend, June, who is joining them on their getaway, and whose presence will make everything feel more real. 

Seven years later, the moment June has been dreading has finally arrived: Her fiance, Ollie, is taking her to his family's lake house. But this is not an ordinary visit to an ordinary place; it is a house haunted by June's long-buried memories of her lost friend Leah - and the connection that appears to remain between Leah and the man for whom June's love is as deep as her grief.

Alternating between the two women's vibrant voices, One Night at the Lake is an emotional novel that explores a complex tangle of friendship, loyalty, and betrayal, all driving toward one question: Can love overcome what happened on that hot summer night?
