About Bound in Shallows

bound in shallows

It’s the week before her wedding, and Natalie Marsh doesn’t have a moment to spare. But when a potential donor requests a meeting regarding Natalie’s mental health clinic, the soon-to-be-bride makes time for the conversation—especially since that donor is tied to a tragedy in the life of Natalie’s fiancé, Gideon: eight years ago, Gideon’s roommate Travis died of a drug overdose. Now Travis’s mother wants to honor his memory by helping others avoid the same fate. It is a noble request that soon turns into a nightmare.

As wedding celebrations ensue, old friends renew acquaintances. But what begins as a party of wedding guests becomes a cast of suspects when the discovery of a bloodstained knife puts them all under the spotlight. Things are taking a deadly turn, leading Natalie and Gideon to a horrifying realization: all those years ago, Travis didn’t overdose—he was murdered. And his killer is willing to take deadly action to silence anyone who suspects the truth.

My review

I don’t read a lot of thrillers. Stephanie Black books are the closest I get. I have to read these when it’s light outside. She does such a great job of writing them, that if I tried to read them at night, I’d terrify myself. This one continues a series, I would definitely read them in order. They won’t make as much sense out of order.

This one features Natalie and Gideon. They’re getting ready to get married. As they deal with all the last minute details of their wedding, they also have to deal with many people around them dying. Most of them friends. I have to be amazed at the terrible luck Natalie and Gideon have with deaths. They always seem to be the main suspects, even if they have alibis.

I love that the reader only knows as much as Natalie and Gideon do in this one. That makes it doubly thrilling and hard to figure out just who is the murderer. I would not have guessed exactly who it was. The plot of this one kept me on the edge of my seat. I loved it!

I was sent a copy of Bound in Shallows as a gift from the publisher. All opinions are my own.
