Seneca Lake

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 in the tradition of Miranda Beverly Whitte’s BittersweetLeah 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. This was my first read by Bethany Chase and can see why she has so many fans What happens when two best friends fall in love with the same man after one tragically dies For some reason I had a hard time wrapping my head around the subject of this story The ending and overall confusion of the story just rubbed me the wrong way especially with one of the best friends dying who loved the same man Please don t go into this story thinking that it s a thriller because it s NOT It s women s fiction with a character that dies in this story Of course it leads you to believe that there is something sinister behind the death of the character This is where my mind was leadingmaybe due to all of the thrillers I ve read hahaThis story solely focuses on the complexity of relationships friendship loyalty love death and family This first half of the story was very slow and took me awhile to get invested I did love the alternate storylines of Leah and June Once the story took off it really took offBut I was left feeling a little disappointed in the end and just couldn t wrap my head around the entire story as a whole It left me annoyed a bit and sad I don t want to give any spoilers but come talk to me ifwhen you read it I will be checking out from Bethany Chase enjoyed her writing style for sure Overall 325 stars for me on One Night at the LakeThank you to Netgalley and Random House Ballantine for the arc in exchange for an honest reviewPublication date 61819Published to Goodreads 3319

I received a copy of this title via NetGalley It does not impact my reviewWell this book was not for me A small part of it might be that I have been in the mood lately for mystery and suspense I knew this was not that type of book but I feel like the synopsis suggests there is at least a hint of a mystery and there really wasn t It was of a character driven story about love and guilt and I found it repetitive and pretty boringI really hated almost every character in this book especially the three main characters Leah June and Ollie The story is told through alternating first person POV by Leah and June I found both of these women insufferable I didn t like or connect with either of them and it made the book very hard to get through I liked Ollie until I didn t And once I didn t I really despised him The great love story this book is supposed to have came off as a little scumbag ish to be honest and I couldn t get behind itOverall One Night at the Lake just didn t work for me I find that if I m going to find this type of story enjoyable I either have to like the characters or love to hate them and neither are true here I found them self indulgent and annoying However I have read many great reviews on this one so I m obviously in the minority here I am upping my rating from 1 star to 2 because there were occasionally some good banterOverall Rating out of 5 2 Stars
