Instead, something happens and Leah doesn t survive the trip Seven years later, June and Ollie are headed back to Seneca Lake It s June s first trip in seven years and she s hoping Ollie, her fiance, can make the trip a little easier The lake and Ollie s family home are haunted by memories of Leah This was an interesting read that I enjoyedthan I thought I would It s told between alternating timeline and narrators we get Leah, seven years ago, telling us the story leading up to her death, and then June, in present time, as she deals with being back again at Seneca Lake and Ollie s houseI hate it like I have never hated anything else on earth And now I have to go backTension basically oozes from June s every pore, but we don t learn what happened to Leah for most of the book, except that occurred at the lake seven years ago I usually find that trope a bit annoying, but it wound up working here, as I got caught up in the story and the characters You definitely had to get past the slight ick factor of this odd threesome first Leah and Ollie now June and Ollie but it s basically the book s entire premise, and I think it s dealt with fairly well This is a character driven novel at its core, though there is the tension and the mystery swirling as to what happened to Leah Throw in Ollie s troublesome stepbrother and June s past love, and you ve got plenty of characters to keep the story interesting and moving Overall, I found this to a be a surprisingly enjoyable read It s easy to find yourself lost in the story, wondering what happened to Leah and how Ollie and June found each other again they retreated to separate coasts after Leah s death It s emotional and serious, but sweet too and a strong story of love and friendship 3.75 stars I received a copy of this novel

between the voice of Leah from the past leading to her death and June, Leah s best friend, living with the memory of losing her friend.Seven years earlier Leah, June and Leah s boyfriend Ollie had all been good friends so when June needs some cheering up Leah invites her along to Seneca Lake Leah is expecting Ollie to finally propose while away at his family s lake house so not only does she want to cheer up June she also wants her best friend around to celebrate.However, things did not go as planned seven years ago and June and Ollie returned from that lake without Leah who had been the glue that held the friendship together The years went by without any contact as both dealt with their grief then one day June and Ollie met up again Before long they were a couple and as hard as it may be they needed to return to the lake house.Despite the tragedy happening years earlier in One Night at the Lake it was still a rather compelling read Readers are unsure what had happened back then and how the current relationship had formed with both loving Leah so the pages flew by as the story slowing unfolded I have to say though as much as I was enjoying the read I did kind of feel a bit let down at the end and felt it should have hadto it leaving this one at 3 1 2 stars.I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley.Forreviews please visit This was my first read by Bethany

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 haha This 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 off But, 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 if when you read it I will be checking outfrom Bethany Chase enjoyed her writing style for sure Overall, 3.25 stars for me on One Night at the Lake.Thank you to Netgalley and Random House Ballantine for the arc in exchange for an honest review.Publication date 6 18 19Published to Goodreads 3 3 19 This is

I was reading from Leah s POV or from June s Both narrators were first person, and their voices weren t distinct, so I had to wait to read how they referenced the other one to figure out whose perspective I was in Thanks to NetGalley and Ballantine Books for the opportunity to review this book, which RELEASES JUNE 18, 2019.Forreviews, please visit
