Hotel on Shadow Lake
Author: Daniela Tully
Family secrets never stay buried forever.
Maya Wiesberg thought she had accepted the disappearance of her grandmother—the woman who raised her in Germany, her best friend, and a storyteller of spellbinding, mystical fairy tales.
But when her grandmother’s body is found decades later, pristinely preserved in the mountains of upstate New York, Maya begins to question everything. Who was this woman? What made her leave Germany? What were her ties to the captivating yet chilling Montgomery Hotel near the site of her death?
As Maya seeks answers, she finds herself sidetracked by her own assumed identity—and how much it enchants the charming heir of the Montgomery dynasty. She soon discovers that the best way to the truth about her grandmother might be surrendering herself to the majestic Montgomery Hotel, the strange family that owns it, and spirits that live on in deep surrounding wilderness…
Daniela Tully’s sweeping, atmospheric debut will take you on a journey from 1930s Germany to the haunting forests of American today. Revealing family secrets that span decades and cross oceans, Hotel on Shadow Lake is a stirring, satisfying read.
