I had a really hard time rating this one do you ever have books where you get so frustrated with the characters that you just want to scream Well this is definitely one where I was super frustrated and wanted to throw my kindle at times lol Erin and Mark are a newly married couple that don t have the best honest relationship I noticed that Erin and Mark both have been keeping secrets from one another Erin is trusting Mark a little then she should despite all the red flags But Erin isn t so innocent either and has been keeping just as much from her husband Mark Seems like a disaster waiting to happeneeek Erin is a filmmaker who has an interest in the world of crime She begins a filming project about three people who are being released from prison The documentary examines closely the lives of these three individuals and starts out as a project but ends up taking a sinister turn While on their honeymoon Mark and Erin find a mysterious black bag in the ocean Let s just say the items in the bag are not in the least bit innocent This of course adds intense moments and leads to a show of an ending I had some issues with this book which is why I only gave it three stars One my god was this book slow up until 50 percent for me I felt like nothing was happening and I was struggling to complete chapter after chapter Finally it picked up half way through I felt that some of the events that transpired from Mark and Erin s decisions were just too unbelievable I felt that it would be almost impossible to get away with some of the things that Mark and Erin got away with Too much security etc currently I feel like this was an overall average thriller for me with a decent ending 3 starsThank you so much to Netgalley and Random House Ballantine for an advanced arc in exchange for my honest review Published to GR 52318Publication date 6518

book at first but I have to say I ended up really enjoying it and found it to be a tantalizing premise for a story I don t even know what I d compare this book to Its really uite uniue from other psychological thrillers though I m sure some comparisons Ruth Ware Paula Hawkins are bound to come up I don t want to make those though because I don t think readers should go into this book expecting something similar to what they ve already read Enjoy this one on it s own merit Erin and Mark are about to embark on their dream honeymoon Erin is a documentary filmmaker and is engaged to handsome successful financial advisor Mark The two have a nearly perfect relationship each balances the other out and is able to cheer the other up when down Erin is creating a documentary about prisoners

open to understanding when they ve misunderstood the otherBut I don t want to forget to mention the other characters The three prisoners Holli Alexa and Eddie are fascinating each in their own way

their own story peppered throughout the book in Erin s interviews with themAnd the mystery The something that is in the water It sets a chain of events in motion that are twisty and heart pounding in their rapid succession From the time the boat hits the THUNK THUNK readers will NOT be able to put this book down Erin and Mark both handle the situation so differently Erin surprises even herself with her boldness which was wonderful to read about Erin was a great narrator even if I did want to shake her at times and tell her to stop JUST STOPThe series of tiny decisions that could lead them on different paths each step of the way was extremely well written I found myself unsure at each stage what I would choose Would I follow the same path that Erin and Mark did What would I do if I were the one to find something in the water I wanted to avoid saying much about the plot beyond the discovery because readers will absolutely love the ride this book will take them on I look forward to

summary Something in the Water

Red how long it takes to dig a graveWonder 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. Something in the Water by Catherine Steadman is a 2018 Ballantine publication Slightly predictable morality tale with a nice hook and a few clever twists You just got married you re in financial straits looking at a drastic change in your uality of living standards but you ve already got a nice honeymoon planned in Bora Bora so why not enjoy every minute of your vacation That s what newlyweds Erin and Mark plan on doing before they head back to reality and an uncertain future But on a standard scuba dive they discover something in the water a discovery that puts them in a very prickly position However the bottom line is they probably hit the Motherload But they also make another very grisly discovery and in their paranoid horror and glee make a few whopping mistakes that could come back to haunt them Can they get away with keeping something that doesn t belong to them Should they What if someone finds out The pressure they were under before is nothing like the pressure they are under now As they work to cover all their bases they face one moral dilemma after another as lies and rationalizations take over and they slide further into moral bankruptcy every day Erin a documentary filmmaker is our narrator laying out the full story going back to when she and Mark first met Mark s job as an investment banker ended abruptly and uite unexpectedly forcing Mark to face the dismal prospect of having to take any job he can find in an economic downturn The treasure they find is the answer to all their problems but they aren t prepared for the lengths they will have to go to to profit from their discoveries while trying not to get caught They soon find themselves rubbing elbows with less than trustworthy people justifying their moral compromises and keeping secrets from each other Right now psychological thrillers are so popular publishers are rushing subpar novels with interchangeable plotlines into the marketplace in record numbers It s so bad I ve begun removing PTs from my TBR pile before I burn out completely Sort of reminds me of the fever pitch PNR and Urban Fantasy reached back at the peak of Twilight s popularity thank God that s over Maybe Fifty Shades of Grey knockoffs are on the way out too one can only hope But I digress This book however had a very intriguing synopsis and the ratings were mostly favorable so I had to see why it was popular While I was hopeful I also approached the book with cautious optimism Thankfully despite my having picked up on a few tells early on in the novel I found myself caught up in the character s fear guilt and self loathing their guilty consciences or lack thereof battling against the need to cover their butts and pull off the caper of the century all so they can maintain a lifestyle they had grown accustomed to It was an interesting journey from that standpoint The parallels between Erin s documentary subjects and her own life didn t go unnoticed and the role they played in the story was ironic However the characters were often so na ve so utterly clueless I wanted to scream or maybe I didn t give them enough credit You ll have to be the judge on that one Overall the story is a little predictable but I was very engaged and very interested to see how everything would turn out in the end It s an addictive read with some well timed twists that are every effective Overall I ended up enjoying this one for the most part It has a few flaws but didn t feel like a book written just to cash in on a trend Perhaps Steadman will try her hand at this often in between her acting roles of course 4 stars
