Lake News - Barbara Delinsky

I enjoyed Lake News by Barbara Delinsky, but it wasn't one of my favorites by her.

The book examines the complex emotions involved when the media invades a person's privacy and destroy's their life. It also looks at the complicated relationship between a man and a woman who are struggling to find a new purpose and a new life in a small town they once called home. Dynamic family relationships are also explored.

While it is a beautifully crafted story with believable characters and rich descriptions of the lake and life in a small town, I just didn't connect with the characters as well as I have in her other novels.
