Product Description

Product Description

Some answers are found far beneath the surface…

Sixteen-year-old Freesia Worth has a mystery to solve—the disappearance of her mother at their family lake house. Her traumatized sister Sage hasn't said a word ever since that day.

After almost a year, Detective Barry Cuaco has found nothing but frustrating dead ends. Soon he'll have to let the case go. But Freesia isn’t making it easy for him. She needs answers. Now.

With the help of her secret crush, Rick, and a mysterious Goth girl named Mizu, Freesia learns about an ancient Native legend and a man known as the Watcher of the Lake.

Will Freesia finally uncover the truth? Or will the lake keep its secrets far beneath the dark water?

"A ghost story that combines elements of mystery, suspense, and the stirrings of young love, Dark Water will send a delicious shiver up your spine." —S.G. Rogers, author of The Last Great Wizard of Yden

"Chynna tells a suspenseful, nightmarish, haunting tale while like a master seamstress, she weaves real insight throughout the story into the world of war, mental health and special needs. This one will be with me for a long time." —Doreen McGettigan, author of Bristol boyz Stomp

5.0 out of 5 stars A dark tale to love 15 Aug 2012
By Carly Anne - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I loved this book!! From the first page I was sucked into an amazing story not only of creepy happenings but also one of acceptance and understanding between siblings and friends! When your parents are gone and the world is rushing in at you, you can only depend on family and close friends and through the hardships and unforeseeable twists this story held that together. 5 stars for Dark Waters.
