Friday Memes: Lake Silence by Anne Bishop

Happy Friday everybody!
Book Beginnings on Friday is now hosted by Rose City ReaderThe Friday 56 is hosted at Freda's Voice. Check out the links above for the rules and for the posts of the participants each week. Don’t dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

Beginning:
Moonsday, Juin 12

I wouldn't have known about the dead man if I hadn't walked into the kitchen at the exact moment my one-and-only lodger was about to warm up an eyeball in the wave-cooker.
Friday 56:
Before I could become more than mildly alarmed, the Lady of the Lake rose out of the water to my left and said, "You shouldn't tease Miss Vicki after she gave you a carrot."

The swirling stopped. I looked to my right. The pony had disappeared.
This week I am featuring Lake Silence by Anne Bishop. This is one of my most highly anticipated books of the year. This story is set in her Others urban fantasy world. Here is the description from Amazon:
In this thrilling and suspenseful fantasy set in the world of the New York Times bestselling Others series, an inn owner and her shape-shifting lodger find themselves enmeshed in danger and dark secrets.

Human laws do not apply in the territory controlled by the Others--vampires, shape-shifters, and even deadlier paranormal beings. And this is a fact that humans should never, ever forget....

After her divorce, Vicki DeVine took over a rustic resort near Lake Silence, in a human town that is not human controlled. Towns such as Vicki's don't have any distance from the Others, the dominant predators who rule most of the land and all of the water throughout the world. And when a place has no boundaries, you never really know what is out there watching you.

Vicki was hoping to find a new career and a new life. But when her lodger, Aggie Crowe--one of the shape-shifting Others--discovers a murdered man, Vicki finds trouble instead. The detectives want to pin the death on her, despite the evidence that nothing human could have killed the victim. As Vicki and her friends search for answers, ancient forces are roused by the disturbance in their domain. They have rules that must not be broken--and all the destructive powers of nature at their command.
