Just back from two glorious weeks at my stone cottage on Saskatchewan Lake. Many of you know that the surrounding Haliburton Highlands was the inspiration for BLACK WATER’s setting. I’m looking forward to returning to the Highlands to resume work on the third book in the Pat Tierney series.
AND to escape the heat. It’s sweltering here in Toronto, and the heat isn’t so oppressive with a beautiful lake to jump into and a screened porch where I can work on my laptop.
Those of you who haven’t read the second Pat Tierney book should consider escaping from the summer heat by plunging into BLACK WATER. The story is set in the winter so temperatures are delightfully chilly. The setting is Christmas-card pretty with snow-dusted fir trees, and frozen lakes and hillsides. Pat finds herself crossing a chain of lakes (very similar to the chain that Saskatchewan Lake is part of) on a snowmobile. If you haven’t been on one of those machines, you’ll be in for quite a ride.
Chill out and enjoy the ride!
