Stillhouse Lake by Rachel Caine

Full title: Stillhouse Lake (Stillhouse Lake #1)

Rating: 5-Stars

Summary on Goodreads.

"Gina Royal is the definition of average—a shy Midwestern housewife with a happy marriage and two adorable children. But when a car accident reveals her husband’s secret life as a serial killer, she must remake herself as Gwen Proctor—the ultimate warrior mom.

With her ex now in prison, Gwen has finally found refuge in a new home on remote Stillhouse Lake. Though still the target of stalkers and Internet trolls who think she had something to do with her husband’s crimes, Gwen dares to think her kids can finally grow up in peace.

But just when she’s starting to feel at ease in her new identity, a body turns up in the lake—and threatening letters start arriving from an all-too-familiar address. Gwen Proctor must keep friends close and enemies at bay to avoid being exposed—or watch her kids fall victim to a killer who takes pleasure in tormenting her. One thing is certain: she’s learned how to fight evil. And she’ll never stop..." [+ More].

Holy crap! This book was good. I had always wanted to read about what happened after the serial killer/murderer/kidnapper etc. was caught, and here I have it.

I thought Gina was a little paranoid having to move around so many times but at the end it made sense.

I love all the twists in the plot. By the end I was wishing this was a series, and it is!

I really liked Gina's character (well, Gwen), and her children too.

When I started reading I got a little bored with the set up of the new home and all that, and I was thinking "oh oh, this is not for me" but because I really liked the subject of the book I kept reading it. I am glad I did because I enjoyed it a lot.
