I have always loved books ever since I learnt to read. The sort of person who would look at an instruction manual if there were nothing else available. Not that that has happened too often - I have tottering piles of books not to mention e books. I will read almost anything as l long as it holds my interest. Besides books. I love music, photography, cryptic crosswords and playing Fitz 1 & 2 games.
The Secret by the Lake - Louise Douglas

Beautifully descriptive and it is easy to picture the creepy cottage near the reservoir, the claustrophobic 1960's. Amy gets more than she bargains for when she becomes nanny to Vivi, especially when the family are forced to return to Somerset after a tragedy. This is a fantastic story which kept me engrossed from start to finish. I didn't want it to end, with its mysteries, secrets and mostly likeable characters. Highly recommended to everyone, not just Louise Douglas fans.
