Drowning With Others was one of my September selections on Prime First Reads Each month is a hit or miss with me but this selection was definitely a hit A fast paced suspense based on lies told in years past and currently The characters were a little out of my league so I had a rough start trying to connect with them but, despite that, the story itself is as old as time lies, deceit, murder and cover up I like the writing style of the author and the book succeeded in being quite suspenseful until the end If you like suspense then I definitely recommend Drowning With Others. No one can keep secrets these days And so begins the exquisitely character driven novel, Drowning with Others I started reading this late last night, and just finished today I could hardly put it down While it does seem a little too drawn out, I found it to be a fun, quirky, beautifully rendered suspense Perhaps it was all the references to the mid to late 90s, when I was in college myself, but the book really resonated with me I enjoyed the characters, and the mystery was unexpectedly good I thought the book was heading one way, yet it went head first in another directionwhich I loved Told from three points of view, those of Andi the mother , Ian the father , and Cassidy their daughter , the time frame bounces from present day during Cassidy s senior year in high school to the 1996 97 school year, when Ian Andi were the senior it couple at Glenlake Academya prestigious, elite boarding school near Chicago It also includes journal entries from each, which were probably my favorite sections Truly, my only gripe with this story was the Investigative Journalism class trying to solve a 20 year old crime Not sure I really found it plausible, as they d be interfering with an on going investigation Nevertheless, I think this one is well worth readingparticularly if you enjoy slow burning mysteries with absolutely awesome red herrings I m very happy with this as one of my Kindle First selections 3.5 stars rounded up Ian and Andi Copeland were high school sweethearts at their boarding school Twenty years later, they are married and their daughter Cassidy is now a senior at that same school A car is found at the bottom of the local swimming hole with a body in it, and it turns out to be a missing teacher from Ian and Andi s senior year at school Cassidy s class is taking on a class project to investigate what happened The Copeland family is drawn into the mystery of what happened, and along the way secrets are revealed.Told from Andi, Ian and Cassidy s points of view Journal entries from Andi and Ian s time at school are used to fill in blanks from their pasts I enjoyed the way the journal entries were included to further explain the characters and their stories Andi and Ian broke up for a little while during their senior year, and it seems both of them have secrets from that time in their lives Cassidy is curious about the submerged car, but she becomes even curious when she learns things about her parents lives during that time Well drawn and likable characters.Family drama and a murder mystery The mystery was intriguing, especially since it s not really clear if their was foul play or if the car ended up in the water from an accident or suicide As the story continues, it seems any of those scenarios is possible The family drama includes Ian and Andi s teenage years and the events currently happening in everyone s lives.An entertaining read, but I would have enjoyed suspense A good read for fans of domestic suspense that enjoy relationship drama than suspense This was my First Reads pick for September 2019.
