Host Jo Reed and AudioFile’s Michele Cobb discuss A House at the Bottom of a Lake, the story of a truly unforgettable first date. James and Amelia go canoeing and discover a fully furnished house underwater. They become obsessed with the house and form an intense bond over the weeks of exploring the mysterious house—but a foreboding presence looms within the house and threatens to drive them apart. The narrators craft memorable characters while also setting a tone and pace that well suits the horror and romance of this audiobook.
