Lakebridge Summer the sequel to Lakebridge Spring continues on the story of Stansbury Vermont and it’s residents. I loved Spring and Summer even more so.

It makes me think of Shrek. No not in the green ogre kind of way but in the way that Shrek described himself. Like an onion with layers. Spring was the foundation setting up the story and characters. With Summer Natasha builds more on that foundation while peeling back those layers. The character development is so strong Natasha lays them out al

“Though continuing in the theme, the setting and reintroduction of some of the same characters in the previous book, “Lakebridge: Summer” took me a couple of attempts to get into, but once it hooked me it didn’t let go. The observations within the narrative given from different character perspectives were a key component of the story’s build of tension and direction, and increased both the subtlety and complexity of this new entry in the Lakebridge cycle.

I have sat on this book review since early summer. Why? I have no idea, well perhaps that statement is not entirely true. The reasons why are many, mainly because I was so taken back by the amazing tale of horror and hope and festiveness wrapped in a dripping red bow. I did not think she could blow me away more after Spring, but she did and in a roar of heat and flames from above and below in came Summer.

This second in this series, wait this cycle because this is much more than just a 2nd book,

Summer is the second book in the Lakebridge cycle and I have to say it's even better than the first! (And I thought the first book was AMAZING!) Ms. Troop is delving more into the supernatural for Summer and it's completely riveting. There are new characters to experience while feely comfy with the old characters that are still living in Stansbury despite the tragedies left from Spring. There are gods, monsters and killers all fighting each other, which makes it extra terrifying for the "normal ...more

This was an incredibly fun and addictive read. This is the author's second published work, and you can tell that she has her groove on here and is much more comfortable with her characters and the creative process. By the end of the story, I was sorry I had started the book - because that meant I would have to finish it, and I didn't want to!

Wow, this book picks up a couple of months after Lakebridge: Spring ends, after the big s***storm of destruction. The town has since weathered journalists who have crawled out of the woodwork to cash in on the strange events of this Vermont town. Gil's special power of being a Shleprock (remember him from the Flintstones? Bad luck followed him everywhere too) has been unearthed, publicized and people are fascinated. He won't leave the house though, and the townsfolk are ready to run any new come ...more

With the second book in the Cycle, Lakebridge: Summer, Natasha continues precisely where she left us. As we enjoy our second tour of Stansbury, we really get a sense of what a clever tale she has woven. All of the elements were there in the first book, but the significance of many lay hidden, waiting for their turn to be exposed. If you thought the roots history and mythology were deep in this the town, you may just be surprised at how twisted and interwoven they truly are.

When I read Spring, my

I read the first book in the Lakebridge series and really enjoyed it, so I was naturally excited when the opportunity to read the second book arose. Once again, Natasha Troop has proven that it is possible to write a very literary novel with enough horror elements to be frightening. I thought this book was very good and was a nice addition to the series.

The characters, as in the first book are more than just one dimensional beings. You get a real feel for who they are and why they think, feel an
WTF Are You Reading?
The town is still there. Most of the people are not and everyone is in an uproar because the secrets of the town and it's people have become public fodder. Readers get to watch as the people and ghosts of the the beloved town try to cope.

There are some new additions to the cast of characters, the demon is still there and so is the bridge. The thing that makes this read special is the fact that the people of the town are no longer walking around with blinders on in relation to the evil the both

Lakebridge Summer is the second book in this series. Again, like the first book the author has shown us everyone's prospective in the book. I really love that about this author's writing style. Lakebridge Summer is very well written and the characters very well developed and thought out.

I enjoyed this book but not as much as Lakebridge: Spring. I'm still looking forward to the next in the series and hoping that it is as enjoyable as the first one.
