Into the Water

Happy New Year!
2018 found me reading Into the Water, by Paula Hawkins, and I have decided to write down a few lines in hopes of enticing you to read it too!
The story takes place in a little English village, and in like all little English villages, there are secrets, and people who keep secrets (think Agatha Christie!)
It all begins with a young woman, Nell Abbott, who takes her own life by jumping into the Drowning Pool, the infamous suicide spot in the village. Days before her death, she tried to get in touch with her sister, Jules, who ignored her pleas. Now, Jules is back in her hometown, and she is wracked with guilt and anger towards her sister, as she realizes that she has to take care of Nell’s daughter, a task that she isn’t ready for…
Meanwhile, the locals have their own secrets, and tragedies to get through.


This book is a 4/5 for me! In the same vein as Girl on the Train, this story has multiple characters, and if you like a good nail biting atmospheric thriller, this is the one you should start your year with.
