British author Susan Lewis' new novel, set largely in the Culver-Lake Maxinkuckee area, is the number one new release in British and Irish Fiction on as of Aug. 13, and receiving high praise in reviews in the UK so far, such as this entry from the Blackpoole Gazette in England, which describes the lead character visiting her "late grandmother’s home town of Culver near picturesque Lake Maxinkuckee" and adds that, "One cannot fail to be moved by this heart-wrenching and sensitively written story..."


"No Place to Hide" was released this week officially in England, where Lewis has long been a popular, London Times best-selling author. The book is also doing well so far in the US market, reports Lewis, who visited Culver last fall to research the setting for the novel. She returned to the area in early August for an official release party for the book.

Lewis has penned an article reflecting on her Culver experience, which is published in this week's (Aug. 13) Culver Citizen, available in print locally and online as an "e-edition" here.
