Something in the Water


By Catherine Steadman


Documentary filmmaker Erin and investment banker Mark are on their dream honeymoon in Bora Bora, a tropical island in the Pacific Ocean, when they discover something in the water. They decide to keep their find to themselves. After all, they trust each other completely so what could possibly go wrong? Well, it would seem quite a lot! Someone knows what they've done and is coming for them. In a game of cat and mouse, who can be trusted and who can't?

Whilst I enjoyed Something in the Water, it didn't really offer anything new that I haven't read before. It was a good, fast-paced thriller that I'm sure many readers will enjoy but for me it fell a little flat. I kinda figured out where the plot was heading long before the light finally dawned for Erin. Although it seemed rather too far-fetched at times, it grabbed my attention and kept me engaged until the end. A solid 3 star read.
