Book Sharing - Dark Lake by Clare Revell

I love to book share. What's 'Book Share' you might ask? Good question. It's the means by which I share what I've read lately, and what's caught my eye. Christian suspense author Clare Revell is on my list this month, and I'm eager to let you know all about it!!

And so, without further fanfare, here's the scoop on her latest release, DARK LAKE!


Archaeologist Dr. Lou Fitzgerald is used to unexpected happenings, and they don't usually faze her. After surviving a childhood disability, and dealing with her unfair boss, Lou has learned the art of rolling with the punches.

But when she arrives at Dark Lake, what was supposed to be a simple archaeological dig is beyond even her wildest imaginations.

Landowner Evan Close has his own reasons for keeping the secrets of Dark Lake, and this attractive interloper is a menace. Her precious dig threatens to bring his house of cards tumbling down around him, and he feels helpless to stop it.

It soon becomes apparent there are dark forces at work, and Lou's simple assignment turns into a mystery. Solving that mystery comes with a steep price...


Clare  is a British author. She lives in a small town in England with her husband, whom she married in 1992, and her three children. Writing from early childhood and encouraged by her teachers, she graduated from rewriting fairy stories through fanfiction to using her own original characters and enjoys writing an eclectic mix of romance, crime fiction and children's stories.

When she's not writing, she can be found reading, crocheting, or doing the many piles of laundry the occupants of her house manage to make.

Her books are based in the UK, with a couple of exceptions, thus, although the spelling may be American, the books contain British language and terminology. The first draft of every novel is hand written.

She has been a Christian for more than half her life. She goes to Carey Baptist where she is one of four registrars. Her social connections are:


In the interest of full disclosure, I have to admit to the following: In general I don't go running for suspense novels. I'm a contemporary Christian romance girl -- but when I find an author as talented as Clare Revell who so deftly combines both suspense and romance (with faith connecting it all!) - I'm hooked. In Dark Lake a mysterious archeological dig becomes a matter of life and death as well as a chance for flawed but loving and lovable characters to show their true character and grow - which is a delightful journey to me as a reader. Five out of five, and thanks to the author for yet another great read!
