Imagine waking up in a life that you didnít recognize as your own, in one minute everything changes. Our heroine, Lake finds herself in this exact situation. Newly separated and heading towards a messy divorce, she is forced to reevaluate her life and resume her professional career. Lake has found the perfect balance by opening her own PR business. She works out of her home and goes to her clientís space. It seems this is the perfect compromise. Early on Lake mixes business with pleasure, this put her on edge, and causes her to start to become unraveled. When crazy, evil things start happening Lake is left wondering why.
Lake starts off consulting at an infertility clinic, where it after a few evil events befall Lake, it becomes apparent that all is not what it seems to be, and something sinister is lurking just beneath the surface. Lake can't help herself, and she gets drawn into a killerís game of intrigue, violence, betrayal, and cruelty. Lake starts to become unraveled; many dastardly deeds are directed towards her, yet she never loses her focus on the task at hand. Much of her focus is thanks to Kit Archer, investigative reporter, overall lifesaver, and Lakes new love interest.
Hush was the first book of Kate Whiteís that I have read, and it definitely wont be the last. I am purposely being a little bit sketchy on the plot details, as not to give anything away. Several times while reading this book, I literally got chills down my spine and one night I even slept with the light on! Perhaps one of the things that I like best about this book was that I couldn't figure out who the villain was, until just a few pages before it was revealed. The story is filled with some heart thumping suspense and a few secondary characters that I still just want to murder!!! I would recommend this story to anyone who likes a good mystery.
