Something in the Water by Catherine Steadman






#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER - A shocking discovery on a honeymoon in paradise changes the lives of a picture-perfect couple in this taut psychological thriller debut--for readers of Ruth Ware, Paula Hawkins, and Shari Lapena.

If you could make one simple choice that would change your life forever, would you?

Erin is a documentary filmmaker on the brink of a professional breakthrough, Mark a handsome investment banker with big plans. Passionately in love, they embark on a dream honeymoon to the tropical island of Bora Bora, where they enjoy the sun, the sand, and each other. Then, while scuba diving in the crystal blue sea, they find something in the water. . . .

Could the life of your dreams be the stuff of nightmares?

Suddenly the newlyweds must make a dangerous choice: to speak out or to protect their secret. After all, if no one else knows, who would be hurt? Their decision will trigger a devastating chain of events. . . .

Have you ever wondered how long it takes to dig a grave?

Wonder no longer. Catherine Steadman's enthralling voice shines throughout this spellbinding debut novel. With piercing insight and fascinating twists, Something in the Water challenges the reader to confront the hopes we desperately cling to, the ideals we're tempted to abandon, and the perfect lies we tell ourselves.

My Review




This book had me in the beginning, what could have happened to have caused the situation that she was in at that moment?
This story has a sweet love story, a honeymoon that they look forward to that would rival most others, and they are traveling first class, and then we walk in their shoes as they go!
Now I will warn you will probably be up late page turning on this one, and when you think you know the answers, well, I know I didn’t and then the wow and surprises happen, along with a bit of sadness, and you will ask “who can I trust”?
If you enjoy a book that has your heart in your throat, well this one might be the answer, and in the end, well I could see where it could go on to be another book!

I received this book through LibraryThing, and was not required to give a positive review.
