Review: Something in the Water by Catherine Steadman

Something in the WaterSomething in the Water by Catherine Steadman

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book is nonstop action from the moment it begins. The hits come fast and the pace doesn’t let up until the very last page when you’re wrapping up the book and putting the pieces together.

It’s hard to know how to describe this book without giving spoilers, but I’ll try: Mark and Erin are newlyweds who head out on their honeymoon to romantic and exotic Bora Bora when they discover something. And that something will start a chain of events that changes the course of their lives. And two ordinary young people find themselves possibly in over their heads.

Like I said, it’s hard not to spoil things, but suffice it to say that this is the type of book where every decision and every choice leads to the conclusion, which then you look back on and say “Ahhh…” It all fits together pretty well and is satisfying. Although I wish there would have been a little more explanation as to the “why.” We get only a bare bones explanation and it’s a little jarring.

This book is also perfect for the type of person who like to wonder what they would have done in the characters’ place. I know I was questioning myself at every point. I think I could have avoided everything, but I am a scaredy cat who can walk away from things and not really wonder about them if I’m getting a bad feeling. Let’s just say Mark and Erin are not those people.

This book is perfect for action lovers and people who enjoy a good who-dunnit. Apparently Reese Witherspoon is one of those people, because she chose this book for her book club! Let’s see if the movie is in the works!
