Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"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 ... Leah Tessaro has been waiting for this moment for 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 has been together for four years and Leah is convinced that Ollie is finally going to pop the question. And 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 Kang has been dreading has finally arrived: Her fiancé, Ollie, is taking her to his family's lake house. But this is not an ordinary visit to an ordinary place; it is a home haunted by June's long-buried memories of her lost friend, Leah--and the connection that appears to remain between Leah and the man June loves as deep as her sense of foreboding. Alternating between the two women's vibrant voices, One Night at the Lake is a gripping novel that explores a complex tangle of friendship, loyalty, and betrayal, all driving toward one question: What exactly happened to Leah on that hot summer night?"-- Provided by publisher.

    What should have been a fun, romantic trip to her boyfriend's house in the Finger Lakes ends in Leah's untimely death, leaving her boyfriend, Ollie, and her best friend, June, devastated. Fast forward seven years: June and Ollie have fallen in love and are planning their wedding when Ollie asks June to join him for a family celebration at the house where her friend's life tragically ended. This novel, told in dual narration alternating between Leah of past and June of present, details the experiences each woman has as they spend time at the lake house and with Ollie's family. There is a mystery surrounding Leah's death and several secrets are revealed, however the focus of the book is on June and Leah's friendship, as well as their relationships with Ollie. Chase's third novel (after Results May Vary, 2016) demonstrates her engaging writing style and ability for strong character development. One Night at the Lake is a good recommendation for readers who enjoy emotional, relationship-driven women's fiction such as The Light We Lost by Jill Santopolo (2017).
