Construction of a novel with a mystery at its core is a fascinating, sometimes tricky process. The Lake and the Lost Girl by Jacquelyn Vincenta is a mystery with two story lines – one set in the 1930s, and one in 1999 – that are driven by the secrets of a woman who disappeared in 1939 and was never found. How did the author use those secrets to create suspense? How did she structure and pace the plot to keep the reader both informed enough to be invested, but still intrigued about the unknown?
