She came at first for answers…now she’s back for you

Amateur viola player Rosie Chandler is the sole survivor of a crash which sends a group of musicians plunging into a lake. Convinced the accident was deliberate, but unable to recall what happened, she is determined to recover her lost memories and seeks out clinical psychologist, Dr Samantha Willerby.

But Rosie is hiding something…

Sam is immediately drawn to the tragic Rosie and as she helps her piece the fragments together, the police find disturbing new evidence which raises further questions. Why is Rosie so desperate to recover her worthless viola?

My Review

5 stars

Rosie Chandler is the only survivor of the crash where the vehicle they were in plunged into a lake. She has lost her memory of the event and has lost her Viola and is desperate to get both back so she goes to Dr. Samantha Willerby. But Sam quickly sees that Rosie is hiding something and has become possessive of Sam. When Sam agrees to take Rosie back to where the crash happened he truth comes out and Sam realizes she is in more trouble than she thought.

Sam is a therapist for traumatic accident survivors so it is natural that she would be asked to help Rosie. Rosie has some serious issues from a young age. When she comes to Sam you can just tell that something is up but not what. She starts to see Rosie relying on her more and more but wants to help her find her lost memories.

This is a great thriller that kept me on the edge of my seat. You can’t help but feel sorry for everything Rosie has gone through but at the same time you know something if off and don’t trust her. Although Sam has a set of rules she follows to stay safe from potential troubled patients she disregards them to help Rosie, big mistake. But Sam also has to worry about her sister and what she is up to. I think this is why she dropped her guard so much for Rosie.

I loved Inside the Whispers and was excited to Read Lost in the Lake. This is a great series that will draw you in, leave you guessing, and thrilled at the unexpected ending. Lost in the Lake could easily be read as a standalone novel but I think reading them in order adds to the story. I recommend checking this book out.

I received a complimentary copy of this book. I voluntarily chose to read and post an honest review.

The Girl from Spaceship Earth by Patricia Ravasio

The true story of a life intertwined with the utopian ideas of an American genius.

A mind-blowing two-day interview with iconic futurist Buckminster Fuller in 1982 Chicago leads an overeager advertising copywriter to promise she’ll share his urgent messages with the world. She has no idea what she is getting herself into, scarcely understanding what he is talking about.

When his dire predictions come true on America’s worst day (9/11) she must face up to her commitment, which morphs into a fiery obsession thanks to unsettling discoveries about Bucky’s archives further confirming the truth of his warnings. Her outsized passions threaten her relationships and her sanity as she grapples furiously to bring his ideas back into the world.

This heartrending karmic tell-all memoir is about climbing out of comfort zones to find your own voice and make a difference in the world. It also gives readers a charming introduction to the ideas of a long lost genius you’ve probably never heard of.

My Review

5 Stars

When Pat Field was eleven years old her father took her to a speaking engagement with Buckminster Fuller who pointed to her and said that women like her would change the world. Zip to 1982 and Pat sees and article about Buck in the local newspaper and decides she wants to interview him. But the interview is anything but normal.

Bucky tells Pat fantastic things about our world and how it is coming to an end. Pat tells Bucky that she will share his story but then he passes and life gets in the way and she forgets her promise until 9/11. Then she remembers and sets about sharing Bucky’s information.

I admit that I didn’t know who Buckminster Fuller was when I first picked up this book but I was interested in the story for the fact that he is telling Pat about how the world is going to end. This can be taken two ways, either he is a nut job or he is a genius and no one is going to listen to him. It turns out Bucky is a genius that has touched geodesic domes, Dymazino car, and so much more.

Bucky’s philosophy was to do more with less. He looked at the whole world and wanted to make it a better place. But with greed and closed mindedness he could see where the world was heading. He truly was an interesting person and it’s sad that he is not as well-known as other people.

This is a fascinating read and one that I truly recommend checking out.
