Mysteries are best served cold. At Justine’s new house in chilly Minnesota, there are no warm comforts, not even a working hob. There’s only relief at having escaped a turbulent life – even if that happened to be in sunny San Diego.

In her lakeside retreat, remote and beautiful, Justine begins to unravel a secret that has haunted her family for decades. A diary, written by her grandaunt Lucy before she died, holds the key to what happened that summer in 1935 when Lucy’s six-year-old sister went missing from the house. The narration shifts between past and present, piecing together the mystery with each turn. 

The novel, which is a debut from Heather Young, takes its time at first, building on character and scene. You can hear the water lapping and feel the chill in the air. If you’re prone to pacey dramas, though, stick with it – you’ll be repaid in full for your patience by the end.
