If you could make one simple choice that would change your life forever, would you? 
Erin is a documentary filmmaker on the brink of a professional breakthrough, Mark a handsome investment banker with big plans. Passionately in love, they embark on a dream honeymoon to the tropical island of Bora Bora, where they enjoy the sun, the sand, and each other. Then, while scuba diving in the crystal blue sea, they find something in the water. . . . 
Could the life of your dreams be the stuff of nightmares? 
Suddenly the newlyweds must make a dangerous choice: to speak out or to protect their secret. After all, if no one else knows, who would be hurt? Their decision will trigger a devastating chain of events. . . . 
Have you ever wondered how long it takes to dig a grave? 
Wonder no longer. Catherine Steadman’s enthralling voice shines throughout this spellbinding debut novel. With piercing insight and fascinating twists, Something in the Waterchallenges the reader to confront the hopes we desperately cling to, the ideals we’re tempted to abandon, and the perfect lies we tell ourselves. 

What an awesome crazy literary ride!! Who wouldn’t love to be in Erin and Mark’s place? Both … successful. Both … young. Both… happy & in love. They are planning a wedding and looking forward to an amazing honeymoon in Bora Bora! Perfect.


That is until Mark comes home to tell Erin that he lost his job and they’ll have to cut corners on the wedding arrangements. Ok, well when you’re madly in love nothing else matters right?


Wedding complete. Honeymoon underway. Marriage saved. In a perfectly splendid day, scuba diving is in order! I feel the warmth of the sun on my face as I read. Then…

“Thunk…thunk…thunk…” what is that noise? They are in the middle of the ocean? What has washed up? Erin and Mark decide to take their “find” back to hotel and think about what to do later.

Except…what’s inside that “find”, will forever change the course of their lives. What will they do? Who is to be trusted? Who is lying? You will no doubt read rapidly to get to the answers to those niggling questions!
