This exciting novel is sure to keep readers glued to the page until the very end of the book. The characters and setting are so real I felt I was riding along with sleuth Pat Tierney as she hunted for the murderer of a harmless old lady, a lady whose secrets got her killed. Pat is a financial planner whose sense of justice lets no one off the hook.
She started on the trail of financiaI fraudsters in Safe Harbour, the first book in the series and honed her skills in Black Water, book two. Pat, her family and the series just get better and better with each outing. I picked up Raven Lake in an afternoon and couldn't put it down. A must read for anyone who read the first two in the Pat Tierney series. If you have read those, I recommend you do. Raven Lake gives an exciting insight into Canadian cottage life.
The mystery is intelligent and well thought out. I didn't see the ending coming If you are a fan of books by international bestselling author Linwood Barclay, then you will like Raven Lake, the latest book by Rosemary McCracken.

This is the third installment of the adventures of Pat Tierney, financial planner and accidental sleuth. I took courses, got my accreditation and then joined Michael at the branch he ran. I love helping my clients get their financial houses in order. How did you get yourself involved in a murder investigation—again? When Black Water opened, my relationship with my eldest child, Tracy, was stretched to the limits. I had to set it right. So when she asked me to help locate her sweetheart, Jamie, I had no choice in the matter.
I headed out to cottage country north of Toronto where an elderly man had been killed in a suspicious fire. And Jamie was the prime suspect. Did the events of Black Water make youa better person? In short, I botched it big time. After I met Jamie, I threw myself into my work, hoping Tracy would get over her infatuation. I made no effort to get to know Jamie. But when Tracy asked me to help when Jamie went missing, I realized how important Jamie was to her.
I also realized that Tracy had been keeping things from me for a long time. The more I learned about Jamie, the more I liked her. Jamie has talent, energy and integrity.

What was the most challenging situation you found yourself in in Black Water? I met up with some truly dreadful people in this book, and a couple of times I really thought it was game over for me. At one point, I had to resort to snowmobile skipping. Have you ever heard of snowmobile skipping? I worry about everything, which makes bad situations twice as bad. I worry about them beforehand, and then I have to live through them. Can we look forward to reading about you again? Unfortunately, Jamie is the prime suspect.

We care what happens to people only in proportion as we know what people are. Everyone has a story to tell, including the characters in your novel and short story.
Back story is part and parcel of who the characters are. Many authors have trouble fitting the back story into their fiction. Where should it go? All at once like a bio? Start the story off with the bio? Introduce each new point-of view character with his or her bio?
Work in little chunks where appropriate throughout the story? Skip it as back story per se and just filter in references to it as the story unfolds. Think about what you have read in back story in published novels and short stories. For obvious reasons, short stories will have less, even when appearing in chunks. But in novels, how did you react when the author started the novel with the back story or started each scene featuring a new POV character with a chunk of their past, especially if it went on for pages. But it should reflect what is happening in the story and why the characters are doing what they are doing.
Going on back story tangents can lose the reader. However, the other main way which I use — working in little chunks where appropriate can also lose the reader, especially if a lot of action is happening.

All this for a post-mid-life crisis which brought his oh-so-much younger secretary in and sent my mother packing. How could that be? What happens, happens, and I believe in making the best of it and moving on. What the hell for? He is the family lawyer? How do you propose we see this will? I really like the cottage country setting and it is kind of neat having the contrasting summer and winter settings in this book and 2 in the series, "Black Water". Maybe Pat learned how to paddle a kayak in a bit of too short a time but she has shown herself to be pretty versatile with things like the ski-doo skipping in the "Black Water" book for instance.
Pat's kids and her extended family are all likeable and believable people with normal warts and Tommy and Maxie are still pretty special. The resolution of the mysteries was a bit predictable and I had the culprits figured out well before the ending which in itself is quite solid and very much tied everything up without a major loose end. I hope Ms McCracken is writing some more full length Pat Tierney mysteries because I'll surely read any more that she releases.
