Wow! I am saying wow because of the way the story was crafted. Lake Effect will leave you a sobbing mess after reading it.

Captivating and yet surprising. It was a quick read that captured my attentions very swiftly, which can sometimes be a challenge. I had no trouble getting into this story though and the crafting of the writer's work is definitely worth noting. Ms. Tone delivers a story that will appease most bibliophiles for an afternoon.

A gorgeous story of the realities of life and survival, Lake Effect is sensitive, dark, and haunting. A wonderful book to curl up with, Nicole handles the nuances of Sophie's story with grace and tact.

This emotional novel follows Sophie, an art student in college, as she transitions from the life of a student to whatever comes after...and as she experiences the traumas of sexual assault and the death of her fiance.

But if you can handle it, LAKE EFFECT is a highly engaging and effective read, an exploration of one person's partial descent and how th ...more

This is the first book by Nicole Tone that I've had the pleasure of reading. This book deserves more exposure than it's seen so I'll do my part and sing it's praises.WOW! It's one of the rare 1 sitting reads I've had this year. Upon finishing it I immediately purchased Ms Tone's other books. I wanted to write a review right away buy needed time to digest. 2 months since I've read thus and I'm still thinking about it and it's one if those reviews you feel you can never do the book justice. It's u ...more

A beautifully written story- the cover certainly reflects on the story- it’s about something haunting, mysterious and dark.
It is a story of the life of Sophie which the author has handled wonderfully.
Thank you to both NetGalley and Nicola Tone for giving me the opportunity to read this book in exchange for my honest unbiased review.
