Lisa needs to disappear. And her friend's rambling old home in the wilds of Yorkshire seems like the perfect place. It's miles away from the closest town, and no one there knows her or her little boy, Joe.

But when Lisa meets some of the locals, and hears some disturbing rumours about the house, she realises it might not be the sanctuary she thought.

What secret has Rowan Isle House - and her friend - kept hidden all these years?

And what will Lisa have to do to survive, when her own past finally catches up with her?

Reviews for The House on the Lake

Creepy and deliciously atmospheric, this page-turner has it all - twists and turns and a powerful emotional punch. Highly recommend -- Teresa Driscoll The House on The Lake is so tautly written, I literally couldn't put it down. Nuala Ellwood writes like a dream -- Emma Curtis Eerily haunting with the delicious sense of danger which Nuala Ellwood is so good at creating -- Jane Corry
