Happy Friday All:
It’s so different how one week can be so different from the next. Last week Friday was a bad day for me. Having to lose someone due to a tragic accident. Life is so fickle. Even sitting here and writing this post today is a struggle.
Inhale, Exhale and try to push through.
I want to thank Naureen Nashid for providing me an arc of The Night Swim by Megan Goldin.
It is the first time that I have read a book by Megan Goldin. Have you had the pleasure of reading any of Megan’s work? What are your thoughts?
Check out my thoughts on The Night Swim below.
After the first season of her true crime podcast became an overnight sensation and set an innocent man free, Rachel Krall is now a household name―and the last hope for thousands of people seeking justice. But she’s used to being recognized for her voice, not her face. Which makes it all the more unsettling when she finds a note on her car windshield, addressed to her, begging for help.
The small town of Neapolis is being torn apart by a devastating rape trial. The town’s golden boy, a swimmer destined for Olympic greatness, has been accused of raping a high school student, the beloved granddaughter of the police chief. Under pressure to make Season Three a success, Rachel throws herself into interviewing and investigating―but the mysterious letters keep showing up in unexpected places. Someone is following her, and she won’t stop until Rachel finds out what happened to her sister twenty-five years ago. Officially, Jenny Stills tragically drowned, but the letters insists she was murdered―and when Rachel starts asking questions, nobody seems to want to answer. The past and present start to collide as Rachel uncovers startling connections between the two cases that will change the course of the trial and the lives of everyone involved.
The Night Swim is a suspenseful and riveting thriller.
The setting takes place in the small beach town of Neapolis. Rachel a popular true crimes podcaster decides to follow a current rape case for her third season. At the same time Rachel begins to receive letters about a young girl name Jenny who died 25 years ago.
It doesn’t shy away from what victims and accuser of rape faces. I liked that it wasn’t one sided and it explored the emotions of both sides.
I loved the way Megan laid out the story. You felt as if you were a listener of Rachel’s podcast and adventuring with her on her investigating process. The characters all have a sense of mystery surrounding them; they all have a secret that they are hiding. Megan entwines the characters lives effortless between past and present.
Overall The Night Swim is suspenseful, gripping, mysterious, emotional, scary, riveting, surprising and unexpected.
I loved this book.
