Mysterious marina accidents. Destroyed evidence. Can a tenacious reporter decipher the twisted clues at a small-town lake?
Jordan Reed is burned out from all the attention on her previous high-profile story. But when a new lead lands in her lap, she reluctantly postpones her vacation to investigate a classic New England marina. With hundreds of dead fish washing up on Copper Lake’s otherwise pristine shores, Jordan suspects a sinister cover-up.
But by the time she arrives on the scene, she’s surprised to discover the police chief eliminated every last carcass and seems hellbent on blocking her inquiries. And her search for the culprit takes a perilous turn when gambling kingpins descend on the city and a string of unexplained calamities plague the docks.
Can Jordan expose the corruption, or will she be the next to go belly-up?
Lake Effect is the second book in the fast-paced Jordan Reed mystery series. If you like steely female sleuths, gripping action, and clever twists that’ll keep you guessing, then you’ll love K.C. Gillis’s page-turning mystery.

Another superb novel by this wonderful author. I read Toxic Deception back in February and really loved it! Although Lake effect is book two in this series I don’t believe you need to read it to read this one but it would give some nice background.
Again we are following Jordan Reed who ends up getting involved in a bunch of small town mysteries. Just like in book one this is a multiple perspective following different throughout this investigation. K.C Gillis perfectly entwined two seemingly different cases very well and done so well exploring all of the people involved with each case.
In my review of book one I mentioned that I didnt like Jordan due to the way she treated people who loved and cared for her but in this novel we did see a redemption arc of sorts
Just like book one this was a very fast paced story with many twists and turns you wouldn’t expect but was also very different from Toxic Deception.
I also love how much research goes into these stories and it informs the reader in a very easy and understandable way of all the science and technological parts involved in this book.
You should definitely check this one out.
