    Have you ever wondered how long it takes to dig a grave Wonder no longer It takes an age However long you think it takes, double that. Let me start by giving credit where it s due Catherine Steadman nails the first chapter hands down Very few openers have acquired my attention as adeptly as those four simple sentences.How could any suspense reader not be enthralled with a woman who turns to Google to learn the proper depth to bury a body or look away as she carries on, one painstaking shovel full at a time Erin proves with her narrative, ridding yourself of a pesky body, in dirt, might not be as easy as the movies portray wink I m not a bad person Or maybe I am You decide I think we can all agree there s not much subjectivity allowed here, is there anyone who finds themselves in a situation that requires the disposal of a body, pretty much guarantees they re not a good person What kind of reader would that make me though, if I didn t give Erin the chance to explain herself From Erin s declaration on her moral character, Catherine Steadman flips the calendar back three months setting to work the events that land her leading lady in the woods committing a major felony Let me dip my toe in the plot here for a bit Erin is a budding documentary filmmaker, while her soon to be husband, an in...

    5 THUNK THUNK THUNK Stars A slow build to a shocking discovery, this book will have you wondering what you would do See my review here What an incredible debut novel this is for Catherine Steadman While the book starts with a bang, the next 30% is a slow build as you get to know the characters Then at about 35% the story takes a turn and readers will find themselves holding on for the ride, unsure of where they ll end up I was unsure about this 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 quite unique 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 document...

    5 Tension Filled Stars Well HOT damn this book was just brilliant Full disclosure I was running behind on my reviews so I purchased this on audio on release day and I was even a little hesitant because I saw the author was narrating not always a good thing, but I had no idea that Catherine Steadman is an actress and after finishing this book I now know she is also a fantastic author and audiobook narrator Simply amazing Seriously if I could I would give her narration six stars, it was really exceptional And this book kept me on the edge of my seat from about 30% onErin and Mark are a happy newly married couple on their honeymoon in Bora Bora they are having a wonderful time in this tropical paradise untilthunk thunk there is something in the water and what it is will alter this couple s lives from this point on the tension is ramped up and I felt as though I was on the edge of my seat throughout so many thoughts what would I do in this situation What is the ethical thing to do Erin and Mark were both fabulous characters they both handled the situation so differently and I found that part so compelling and true.Erin was very bold about it all and didn t always think things through, in fact sometimes she did some really stupid things Mark on the other hand was cautious, not much of a risk taker, although he was usually fine with his wife taking a risk ...

    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 happen..eeek 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 innoce...

    Full review hereThis might seem harsh but I really don t understand how this book got published in the way it is.THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS.STYLE AND WRITINGSteadman s writing, is not steady Well There is A LOT in this book A LOT In the beginning I thought hey, she must be going into these details for a reason Then the I read, the I became sure there is no reason for us reading a wedding reception 3 course menu, and prices, for pages, OR how our character interprets a pregnancy test for at least a few page I mean not emotionally but literally with the blue crosses and a lot of fuck and shits ,OR how do we learn about Glock s for at least 5 pages at that point I asked myself, I can read this in Wikipedia Honestly, as far as I know it s better to tell something with less words I can edit this book and cut it to half of it s size, EASILY without losing anything in the plot at all Steadman literally talks about everything in this book The character boards onto a plane and we have a lecture about first classes The character dives into sea and we have a lecture and description about different types of sharks There is a lot Just asking WHY WHAT THE HELL Do people really enjoy reading these, hence so many 5 stars THE PLOTI won t lie The first 30% wasn t that bad Then it jus...

    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 quality 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 qu...

    FIVE STARSFor domestic suspense fun, it doesn t get much better than this SOMETHING IN THE WATER is Numero Uno on the NYT bestseller list this week, a Reese s bookclub selection and the movie rights have long been snatched up All that buzzy attention heaped on one lil ole debut novel can make some of us a tad skeptical No need to worry You are in expert hands with Catherine Steadman Maybe you live on a deserted island and haven t heard, but Steadman is a fabulous, gorgeous actress working in the U.K She, most notably, was a cast member of Britain s Downton Abbey She can also write like the pros, if not better What the heck So much talent in one person Quit your day job or not, Ms Steadman, you are a superstar either way There are tons of summaries out there Please don t read them Listen, I accidentally read the spoilest spoilers EVER in the New York Times and Kirkus Reviews Geez Don t look for about the story I would have enjoyed it so much if I didn t already know what the something in the water was Take my word for it.The pacing is brisk, the narrator is unreliable BUT NOT A DRUNK and the story translates qui...

    Chilling, Thrilling, and Killing Stars My rating system is very simple If I read a book straight through the night, can t put it down at work, interrupt meals to get back to it, it s worthy of five stars And this was the case for Something in the Water Very few books, achem, thrillers deserve five stars, imho They are either lacking in character development, plot development or a mixture of the two I thought this thriller was expertly plotted and quick paced Although I found the beginning to be a little odd, it does make sense within the larger context of the book What is Something in the Water about A couple, Erin and Mark, having just gotten married, set forth on their honeymoon in Bora, Bora Although, instead of having a relaxing vacation on the beach they find a shocking discovery that upends their entire life I m not going to say any, you ll just have to read the book This was a buddy read for me and it made my enjoyment of the book even greater As my reading buddy pointed out, you ll have to suspend your belief in sections of this novel There are definitely moments that are too coincidental or where the protagonist is just too lucky This didn t bother me, but if you are a skeptical reader, it might.All in all, I found this to be extremely fun I could easily equate this with a roller coaster, having so many twists and turns I couldn t put it down, and for me, that is the mark of killer th...

    I love psychological thrillers, so when I saw this on Audible I gave it a shot I love that the book is narrated by the author I thought she was perfect and had no issues there The story just sort of fell flat for me.The two main characters are Erin and Mark and the book is told from Erin s POV Erin writes documentaries for a living, while her husband Mark is an investment banker He s handsome and super loved by everyone They re newlyweds very much in love and about to head on an extravagant honeymoon Plans to have a family are on the horizon While scuba diving in Bora Bora, they discover something in the water that has the potential to change their lives forever It becomes clear fairly quickly that they ve gotten themselves into a boat load of trouble.One decision after another they seem to have it all planned out The problem is that sometimes Erin s curiosity gets the best of her and it was times like this where I just cringed I almost couldn t take it There were parts in the book where I just couldn t stand her character and wanted to scream It s these events, however, that move the plot along and make it interesting Not only that, Mark can be a jerk when he wants to be and I had a hard time figuring him out in the beginning The question is, can they stick together ...
