From the Editor

When Kate, the plucky heroine of In the Shadow of Lakecrest, marries into a family with a wickedly sordid past, she has only an inkling of what she’s getting into. The world in the 1920s didn’t have the benefit of today’s quick Internet searches and online histories. Kate has a sense that something’s not quite right, but no proof other than her own observations and creeping sense of unease. She can’t help but notice how overly affectionate and close her husband and sister-in-law seem to be. Meanwhile, her mother-in-law is a little too interested in Kate producing an heir. Nevertheless, Kate sets her worries aside, convinced that any family is better than the one she was born into.

It’s not until her mother-in-law restricts a very pregnant Kate to the dark, dank confines of the family estate that Kate realizes she’s really in trouble. This is where the book takes a delicious turn that’s a little bit Flowers in the Attic and a little bit Rebecca. Trapped, Kate must rely on her wits to unravel the family secrets to protect what’s her own. And what she uncovers is a shocker that will surely make anyone think twice before grousing about their in-laws ever again.

- Jodi Warshaw, Editor


Product description

Product Description

The year is 1928. Kate Moore is looking for a way out of the poverty and violence of her childhood. When a chance encounter on a transatlantic ocean liner brings her face-to-face with the handsome heir to a Chicago fortune, she thinks she may have found her escape—as long as she can keep her past concealed.

After exchanging wedding vows, Kate quickly discovers that something isn’t quite right with her husband—or her new family. As Mrs. Matthew Lemont, she must contend with her husband’s disturbing past, his domineering mother, and his overly close sister. Isolated at Lakecrest, the sprawling, secluded Lemont estate, she searches desperately for clues to Matthew’s terrors, which she suspects stem from the mysterious disappearance of his aunt years before. As Kate stumbles deeper into a maze of family secrets, she begins to question everyone’s sanity—especially her own. But just how far will she go to break free of this family’s twisted past?
