Cold Waters | Debbie Herbert
5 posts | 7 read | 2 to read
From USA Today bestselling author Debbie Herbert comes a thrilling story of murder and madness set in the darkest corner of Alabama. Everyone thinks fourteen-year-old Violet is a murderer. After a summer-night swim with her best friend, Ainsley, Violet is found confused, wandering in the forest--and Ainsley's never seen again. But without a body, murder charges won't stick, so Violet is sent away. After more than a decade in a psychiatric ward, Violet returns to her broken-down hometown of Normal, Alabama, to claim her dead mother's inheritance and help her overworked sister care for their unstable, alcoholic father. Violet, still haunted by that night eleven years ago, endures horrific flashbacks and twisted hallucinations while townsfolk spit accusations--and for all she knows, they're right. As the summer heats up, details of Ainsley's fate appear like a beast's wild eyes, watching in the darkness, and grim revelations about Violet's family threaten to devour her. Already on the edge of madness, Violet must fight to keep her sanity long enough for the terrible truth to burst from the cold, dark waters.

This was good, but not great. I think I enjoyed the author's writing more than the story, the plot was a little far fetched for me, but it held my attention and I have no regrets about the time I spent reading it. Plus, it was free 😁

I have a love-to-hate relationship with stories where the main character is being manipulated in some regard. It‘s so intoxicating to read but I just want to grab Violet and shake some sense into her!
If you enjoyed the movie Gaslight or the book We Have Always Lived in the Castle, you will enjoy this book!

Violet Henderson is said to be the last person to see her friend alive in the small town of Normal, Alabama. The townsfolk all blame her for the death of the girl although she was only 14 when her friend disappears & really has no motive to hurt her. Violet is put in a psychiatric hospital for the rest of her childhood. Once released she comes home and the truth of the past is uncovered. Entertaining enough. Between a so-so & pick. So, Rounding up

I chose this as April's kindle first book. It takes place in Normal, Alabama. Started this last night and so far it seems promising!

This was my April ‘first reads‘ book from Amazon - entertaining, slightly predictable.
