Dark Lake: An Allie Armington Mystery by Louise Gaylord

This was the first of the Allie Armington books I’ve read, and it definitely drew me in right away. The action was very well paced and I really enjoyed the characters. They had a bit of a Nancy Drew feel, but with a much more adult and realistic feel to it.

There were a few loose ends that I’m left wondering about, but I’m wondering if, because this is part of a series, those questions will be answered in a later book. Along the same vein of being just one in a series, having little pieces of her history pop up that are never fully explained, was just a little distracting. Maybe those little tidbits are explained in the previous books, but I was a little thrown off pace when they would creep up.

The characters are all very well developed and unique. While some characters might have the same general tones, their individual personalities are all very different and interesting to read about.

Overall, this was a fantastic book and a gripping mystery that had me guessing until the very end. I will definitely recommend this book to any mystery lovers I know.
