Something in the Water by Catherine Steadman

I loved this book!!! When I saw that the reviews/ratings were mixed, I was a little apprehensive about reading it. I am so glad that I did! Once I picked it up, I didn’t want to put it down. It holds up to the “psychological thriller” in every sense. I’ve said on my blog before that I am pretty good at guessing endings in books long before they happen. But not with this one! I wouldn’t describe it as “scary” but there are definitely some creepy moments throughout the book…nothing that will give you nightmares or anything of that sort. This is one book that I really hope is made into a movie. I can’t even believe I am saying that! Normally I wouldn’t want a good book to be ruined by a movie..but I think a movie would actually be very good!


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.”
