What Lies Beneath
(Lancaster Falls, Book 1)
by RJ Scott
Narrated By: Sean Crisden
Publisher: Tantor Media

In the hottest summer on record, Iron Lake reservoir is emptying, revealing secrets that were intended to stay hidden beneath the water.

Best-selling horror writer Chris Lassiter struggles for inspiration and he’s close to never writing again. His life has become an endless loop of nothing but empty pages, personal appearances, and a marketing machine that is systematically destroying his muse. In a desperate attempt to force Chris to complete unfinished manuscripts his agent buys a remote cabin. All Chris has to do is hide away and write, but he’s lost his muse, and not even he can make stories appear from thin air.

Sawyer Wiseman left town for Chicago, chasing the excitement and potential of being a big city cop, rising the ranks, and making his mark. A case gone horribly wrong draws him back to Lancaster Falls. Working for the tiny police department in the town he’d been running from, digging into cold cases and police corruption, he spends his day’s healing, and his nights hoping the nightmares of his last case leave him alone.

 Loved the narration

I enjoyed the narration of this book. Sean Crisden made me want to meet the characters especially Sawyer. His interpretation of ‘Koda, Chris’s dog was cute and entertaining. The narration added to the depth of the story.

The following is the review I wrote after reading the book.

Sawyer returned from the big city to be a small town cop. A small town like any other. Full of life, laughter, lies, secrets, and bones, so many bones.

Chris is a successful writer with a severe case having no words. Banished to a cabin in a small town, he needs to come up with his next book. While looking for inspiration he meets Sawyer. They begin a tentative relationship which quickly turns very real for both men.

Sawyer is juggling too many things. Trying to keep his little town on the straight and narrow has become impossible. Falling in love definitely wasn’t in the plan.

I read this book in one sitting. As always this author has written a story with a nice romance and great characters. This books also includes a hint of evil. The author left the story with basically a HFN and many unanswered questions. Wouldn’t really call it a cliffhanger as I was satisfied with this book but really want the next one.
