Into The Water - Book Review

The 18th book I read for my 24 books in 2017 was called Into The Water. I actually borrowed this one from my sister-in-law after she finished reading it and couldn't wait to get it started. See, the thing is, I love Thrillers, but I often read fun and light hearted because with thrilling and scary books, I tend to get too into them and find it hard to do anything else. Yup that happened with this one.  I finished it in about 3 days.


Into The Water by Paula Hawkins
Hardcover: 400 pages  Publisher: Riverhead books; First edition (May 2, 2017)

Amazon Summary:

A single mother turns up dead at the bottom of the river that runs through town. Earlier in the summer, a vulnerable teenage girl met the same fate. They are not the first women lost to these dark waters, but their deaths disturb the river and its history, dredging up secrets long submerged.
 
Left behind is a lonely fifteen-year-old girl. Parentless and friendless, she now finds herself in the care of her mother's sister, a fearful stranger who has been dragged back to the place she deliberately ran from—a place to which she vowed she'd never return.
 
With the same propulsive writing and acute understanding of human instincts that captivated millions of readers around the world in her explosive debut thriller, The Girl on the Train, Paula Hawkins delivers an urgent, twisting, deeply satisfying read that hinges on the deceptiveness of emotion and memory, as well as the devastating ways that the past can reach a long arm into the present.
 
Beware a calm surface—you never know what lies beneath.


I LOVED this book! I literally couldn't put it down. I didn't do anything else while I was reading it. When I finished, Shawn looked at me and said "Welcome back to the real world."  I'd recommend this to anyone who loves a book that will make you think or give you a good thrill.
