Cyrus Coddington, age nineteen, suspects that he may be a genius without a calling. A year-round resident of East Sooke, Vancouver Island, he has a natural resentment for the summer cottagers who descend on its rocky beaches.

The husbands are engaged in an academic collaboration that looks more like competition; the wives are old friends who have grown apart and developed a strange jealousy. Cyrus spies on the cottagers through their windows, then begins to insinuate himself into their lives. When one of the cottagers goes missing, no one will look at any of the others the same way again.--From publisher description.… (mere)

Writing is good, and I liked the psychological depth the author went into, but I was almost always aware it was the writer. Getting into the heads of more than five characters is a stretch. I also wasn't convinced by the crime or by its resolution. Disappointing ending, in fact, and it felt like personal revenge. ( )

The Cottagers is an unsettling story about two vacationing couples in a sleepy island town in Canada, and the teenage boy who tries to insinuate himself into their lives. Klimasewiski examines the fragility of relationships and how our expectations fail to mesh with reality. I thought the writing was good, although there were some flights I would have preferred not to take, and it was overall a good first novel. I found the ending a bit shaky, but I appreciated that he didn't tie things up with a neat bow. ( )

In East Sooke there was only one road to speak of—one spine with short limbs dead-ending into fists of driveways—so it wasn't difficult, if you had any motivation at all, to keep track of which cottages were occupied and in what way: which were rented for the week; which were second homes, busy for one month or another between Victoria Day and Labor Day; which were simply lived in.
