Waiting for Wednesday: Into the Water by Paula Hawkins

Book Synopsis:

“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.”

Why I need it:

The answer to this is simple: I really enjoyed Girl on the Train. It was not a masterpiece but it was a simple and easy to read thriller that ticked all the boxes that Gone Girl missed. I am looking forward to reading another book by the same writer.

The blurb for the book also tempts me because it leaves me wondering if a serial killer is on the loose or if the deaths of the two women are linked in some way. Paula Hawkins is usually fantastic when it comes to writing relationships, emotions and realistic regular people so if the deaths are linked I am sure there will be some sort of interesting character web in this book somewhere. If they are not, I love a good serial killer novel so I will be happy either way. I will be snatching it up the moment it comes out so watch this space for a review coming soon.

Also Look at that cover!

Into the Water is expected for release on the 2nd of May 2017

  1. I can’t wait for this one to come out – I loved The Girl on the Train, so I’m anxious to see if this one is just as good!

      Me too! Girl on the Train was such a nice quick read too, I hope this one is just as good and just as easy to fly through. I need a new mystery novel in my life right now

  2. A lot of people are anticipating this one I am sure. I never read Girl on the Train but saw the movie. Wasn’t thrilled with it but I am interested in reading this one. You are right, the cover is great.

    • The Spine Cracker says:

      The movie was accurate, except for the location because the book is set in London. I think it missed the atmosphere the book had, if that makes any sense?
