Something in the Water

by Catherine Steadman

Overview: 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.

Debbie Weiss (08/04/18): I thoroughly enjoyed this book! Similar in feel to Gone Girl, this novel is even better and keeps the reader wondering what will happen next every step of the way. Erin and Mark are the perfect couple, both with dynamic careers and deeply in love. They decide to honeymoon in Bora Bora and are having a fantastic time until they go scuba diving and find something that nobody else knows about. Should they keep the discovery to themselves, or should they tell others? The book follows the ramification of their decision and the effect it has on their relationship.

I listened to this book on audible and it was narrated by the author, Catherine Steadman. She was a great narrator and definitely added to my enjoyment of the story.
