A Summer Escape Novel--
Some secrets are worth killing for...
   --Romance, suspense and excitement come to the lake this summer to unravel long kept secrets...
 At the heart of every secret often lives a love story. Long ago secrets at a summer camp reveal themselves as life is turned upside down for Lois Brown's four grown children when she decides to turn the family summer home on Misty Lake into a weekly rental...


Out of the corner
of my eye I see the post where the old sign for the camp the priests ran always
hung, hidden by growth, as we approach the lake house.  The YMCA sign
hangs further up, reading CAMP MISTY LAKE.Dorothy has finished applying lipstick using the mirror in front of
her.  She rests her head with the styled
hair our oldest daughter told her was too young for her against the seat.  Behind her expensive sunglasses I know her
eyes are wide as we begin to catch sight of the mansion-like homes perched upon
Misty Lake. 

        "She is insane--renting the house out by
the week!" I mutter.

        "After one week Lois would realize her
folly, Sam," my wife tells me, smoothing her designer Capri pants she made me
tell her looked good on her three times before we left the city.  "It's so much work to have guests, let alone
people who are paying.  A paying guest
expects to be waited on hand and foot!Lois doesn't realize that.  One
week into it she would change her mind about renting the lake house by the week
right away!"

I do not
respond, grunting as I pull into the long drive leading through the trees to
the property.  A sign by the drive
catches my eye.  Misty Lake Haven it

        "What the hell..." I mutter.

       "How cute," Dorothy says.  "She had a sign made."

      "Good thing we came a week early, before
she had anyone who wanted to stay."

nods.  We are quiet for these last few
moments of the drive, waiting for the moment when the lake appears with the sun
sparkling like a million diamonds upon it this time of day.  The moment never comes.  Instead there are campers and tents. 

       "What the hell?"  I say.

      "Oh, Dear..." Dorothy manages.

As we pull
into the circle in front of the lake house we see a dozen vehicles.  My mother stands surrounded by a hustle of
activity, people moving quickly back and forth.She waves as she sees us.

      "What the hell?" I ask, climbing out of
the car.

Dorothy is
still fiddling with her straw hat and scarf.

     "Hello, Sam!" my mother says, looking over
to my wife now.  "Dorothy, I love your

    "What the hell is going on, Mom?" I
ask.  "Who are all these people?"

    "We started the season early, two weeks
ago," she says.  "It's Saturday.  The cleaning company is here cleaning rooms
and the cabins on the adjoining property so everything will be ready for the
groups arriving after three today."

      "After three?" I demand.

      "Yes, Sam!  The group from last week left at eleven.  That only leaves a few hours to be ready for
the next group."

       "You've had people already?"

       "This is our third week," she
smiles.  "Isn't it wonderful?"

Dorothy does
not say a word.  We did not get here
early enough!  I feel sick.  We are too late...
