Jane Hudson never thought she would return to Heart Lake. Her years there as a scholarship girl ended in a double tragedy: the drownings of her two roommates. Now she is back, struggling to adjust to her new life teaching Latin and as a single mother. But the events that haunted her memories for so many years begin to recur in front of her eyes. It seems she alone can see what is happening, and only she will be able to prevent a second catastrophe...Surrounded by the lake that gives the school its name, steeped in history and overflowing with the emotions of teenage girls, Heart Lake guards its past - but cannot keep it hidden.

Carol Goodman

During Carol's teenage years, she wrote poetry and was awarded the Young Poet of Long Island award. After majoring in Latin at Vassar College, she fell in love with language and the Hudson Valley, two themes that would reappear in her first published novel, the bestselling and critically acclaimed novel, The Lake of Dead Languages (Ballantine, 2001).

In the next decade, Carol wrote five more literary mysteries, was nominated for the IMPAC award twice and the Simon & Schuster/Mary Higgins Clark Award, and won the Hammett Prize for Literary Excellence in Crime Writing for her second novel, The Seduction of Water.

In the years after, Carol departed from mystery fiction by writing fantasy and young adult fiction but stayed close to her creative home geographically. With her husband, poet Lee Slonimsky, Carol wrote an urban fantasy trilogy set in New York City. Under the pseudonym Juliet Dark, Carol wrote The Demon Lover (Ballantine 2011) and her young adult novel, Blythewood (Viking Children’s 2013), was named a best young adult novel by the American Library Association.

When Carol finally moved to the Hudson Valley in 2010, she was inspired by the Hudson River mansions and the scenic and perilous River Road, to return to suspense fiction with River Road (Touchstone, 2016).

Her two latest books, The Metropolitans, a middle-grade historical novel, and the ghostly suspense The Widow's House, are set in New York City and the Hudson Valley respectively.
