Into the water by Paula Hawkins

Everything revolves around the drowning pool, a place where over the centuries women have been drowned, some as witches, some suicides and maybe some murders.

This novel begins with the aftermath of the death of Nell Abbott. Her sister Jules returns to the town for the first time in years, she has not communicated with her sister or her niece in all that time.

Memories begin to haunt her as soon as she arrives and steps into the house on the river. What is the truth of what happened in the past and what is the truth now. The police have decided Nell’s death was suicide.

The story is well written, each person has their own chapters. It flows well builds up to a fitting climax. The characters are brought to life and develop all the time.

There are lies, violence, heartbreak, regrets and much more.

Not as good as The girl on the train but still well worth reading.
