Laurie Scott to release debut novel

In Like A Lion Cover

Cressy Lakeside Books is pleased to announce Laurie Scott’s debut novel, In Like a Lion, will be released later this year. In Like a Lion is an action-packed drama about an innocent woman fighting storms of deceit, both inside and out of her control.

Lily Mulally has been imprisoned for a crime she didn’t commit – the murder of former NHL star, Brent Baines. When March roars in with a vicious winter storm, the van transporting her from a hospital to the prison in Kitchener, Ontario collides with a dump truck, offering her a chance to escape. Lily manages to make her way through the raging blizzard and, after hours of travelling on foot, find shelter. Unexpected support arrives when she is discovered by a sympathetic pair of women: an eccentric widow and her granddaughter. With the help of her family and allies, Lily eludes the authorities while attempting to unravel the truth about Brent’s murder and clear her name. She must also deal with the fallout from a secret she can no longer keep. The discoveries she makes lead to startling revelations, but as winter melts away and the truth emerges, she finds herself on thin ice.

Stay tuned to find about about the release date for this new CLB publication!
