Spotlight – Harrow Lake

Title: Harrow Lake

Author: Kat Ellis


Release Date: 9th July 2020

I received a eARC copy as part of the WriteReads Blog Tour. Thank you to TheWriteReads and Penguin Platform for allowing me to join the tour.

From Goodreads:

Welcome to Harrow Lake. Someone’s expecting you . . .

Lola Nox is the daughter of a celebrated horror filmmaker – she thinks nothing can scare her.

But when her father is brutally attacked in their New York apartment, she’s swiftly packed off to live with a grandmother she’s never met in Harrow Lake, the eerie town where her father’s most iconic horror movie was shot.

The locals are weirdly obsessed with the film that put their town on the map – and there are strange disappearances, which the police seem determined to explain away.

And there’s someone – or something – stalking her every move.

The more Lola discovers about the town, the more terrifying it becomes. Because Lola’s got secrets of her own. And if she can’t find a way out of Harrow Lake, they might just be the death of her.

My Thoughts

A A YA horror/thriller that mixes the world of B horror movies with creepy townsfolk and local legends all sounds like a great mix.

Unfortunately this book was not for me. While I can see why others on the tour can love it, personally it had some issues I didn’t enjoy. Sometimes books are not everyone’s cup of tea and thats ok. I think its good to get a range of opinions. However,I found it hard to write my review without spoilers. This is a tour we don’t want spoilers. So, I have decided to wait
to post my spoiler filled review, if you want to see exactly why this book was a miss more than a hit for me.

Until then if Harrow lake sounds like it might be for you, it is out in July!

Thank you again to The Write Reads (Dave) and Penguin platform for letting me be apart of the tour.
