The Lake House by Kate Morton

The Lake House by Kate Morton
In true Morton style this is a tale where a mystery from the past encroaches on, and is solved in, the present.  In 1933 the youngest child of the Edevane family goes missing during a large Midsummer’s celebration at the family home of Loenneth.  Seventy-years later Det. Sgt. Sadie Sparrow, on leave from the London police force, is walking in the Cornish woods with her grandfather’s dogs when she stumbles upon an estate lost in time.  She has rediscovered Loenneth, left very much as it was when young Theo disappeared.  Sparrow begins digging into the unsolved mystery, hating to leave a puzzle unsolved, and finds herself captivated by the Edevane’s and the secretive living heirs.  What happened to young Theo?  After seventy-years will she be able to uncover enough clues to puzzle out the crime?
A great choice on audio, but it is quite long; an ideal choice for the listener who wants to get lost in the English countryside.  While I enjoyed the book it was a tad too long and I guessed the ending way before the characters did which I found disappointing.  Fans of her work will still want to read this one, but if you are looking for a new author to try read The Forgotten Garden by her instead.
