Product description

Review

Beautifully written, chillingly atmospheric and utterly compelling, The Secret by the Lake is Louise Douglas at her brilliant best ― Tammy Cohen, author of The Broken

A master of her craft, Louise Douglas ratchets up the tension in this haunting and exquisitely written tale of buried secrets and past tragedy. ―
Amanda Jennings, author of Sworn Secret

A clammy, atmospheric and suspenseful novel, it builds in tension all the way through to the startling final pages. ―
Sunday Express, S Magazine Published On: 2015-11-29

Hello and thank you for visiting my author page. I'm Louise, I live in Somerset in South West England & I write contemporary Gothic mysteries mostly set in the countryside close to where I live. Thrilled to have won the RNA Jackie Collins Romantic Thriller award 2021 for The House by the Sea.

When I'm not writing, I love to spend time with my family, friends, kind & funny people and animals - especially dogs, birds and whales. I'm passionate about nature, being outside, drawing wildlife, walking, beaches, fictional drama and books.

I really hope you enjoy my books. If you'd like to connect, find me on Facebook Louise Amy Douglas or @LouiseDouglas3 on Twitter. Thank you x
