Review: Something in the Water by Catherine Steadman

Publication Date: June 5, 2018    |    Rating: 4-stars

I am so pleased with this! Catherine Steadman’s, Something in the Water is a great story with a great narrator. I was quickly drawn in, as it starts at a very peculiar place that gets you intrigued immediately. This story, in contrast to a lot I seem to be reading lately, is told from one POV. This was so refreshing for me; I related so much to Erin, our protagonist, and felt really comfortable just sitting in her voice and hearing this story told.

Erin, is a documentary filmmaker who we find working on a project interviewing convicted criminals on the eve of their release from prison and just after. In the midst of all of this, she also marries the man of her dreams, Mark, a once successful investment banker who comes under great stress due career issues – like he doesn’t have one any more. With all of this going on they decide to go on the honeymoon of their dreams to Bora Bora. Whilst there, on a private scuba diving excursion, they discover something in the water that will forever change the course of their lives.

This book has mystery, intrigue, some very intense moments, some moments where I was appalled by how reckless our MC was acting – this book is an excellent examination of what human beings are willing to do for something they desire. If you value wealth and stability, what would you do to get and maintain that? What sorts of lines would you cross? Would you be the same person? Are you any different from any other person who may have crossed lines of their own? I found the story was formatted perfectly – it kept me guessing, it kept me wanting to keep turning pages. I would definitely recommend this as a perfect summer Thriller!

What are some thrillers you are looking forward to reading this summer? Do you have this one on your list? If you don’t…you should!  Have you read this one already? If so, what did you think of it? I want to know – leave a comment below or you can reach me via my contact links to the right >
