  • Sara Gruen: I try not to read novels so I won't get "voice creep," but I get The New Yorker and when I need a quick fiction fix I read a few short stories.

    Kicking off a story with an unsympathetic character is tough; kicking off a story with unsympathetic characters requires almost mythic power to succeed. Perhaps that’s what Sara Gruen was thinking when she devised a trio of spoiled New Yorkers high-tailing it to the shores of a dark Scottish lake in search of its most famous occupant.

    New Year's Eve 1944, Maddie and Ellis Hyde are cut off financially after shaming the Hyde family at a high society New Year's party. This event leads Ellis, Maddie and friend Hank to Scottish Highlands on the hunt for the Loch Ness monster, the only way Ellis feels he will regain his father's respect. The environment is bleak for the wealthy Americans and relationships quickly become frayed, secrets are revealed and Maddie is forced to look at her life through new eyes after befriending the locals. Our book group found the book initially hard to get into, however they grew interested in the characters. We found this book not as good as others by Sara Gruen. 3 1/2 stars
