Sweet Water by Cara Reinard

How far would you go to protect your child?

Would you do anything? Even if someone ends up dead?

Sweet Water was a tension filled mystery from start to finish. It starts with two teens in the woods. One is dead and one can’t remember what happened. Finn’s parents decide that there’s just no way their child would hurt another human… so they cover it up and protect their son at all costs.

I guess it’s true that the disgustingly rich really can buy anything. Or can they?

But for Sarah – the one thing that her husband’s money cannot buy is her peace of mind. She’s so torn as to what happened that night. The lies upon lies eat away at her and the biggest lie is the one she is telling herself. That Finn just might not be the sweet innocent boy she once thought he was.

But rich people problems…. will she defy her husbands family to seek the truth?

“An unsparing account of ‘rich people problems’ that goes on forever, like all the best nightmares.” 

Kirkus Reviews

I LOVED this book. It was a nail biting thriller spring loaded from the very first page and didn’t let up through the whole story. The twists, the surprises, the startling connections all wove an intricate tale of family loyalty and betrayal with so many secrets that keep you on your toes the entire time you are reading.

Suspenseful and engaging, with layers of mystery and manipulation that place you right into every scene, Sweet Water is a super fun domestic thriller that is compulsively addicting right up until the very last page.

Thank you to TLC Book Tours and Thomas & Mercer (Amazon Publishing) for the gifted book.

“Hypnotic and absorbing, a compulsive page-turner to the very end.” 

—Minka Kent, Wall Street Journal bestselling author

About the Book:

What did her son do in the woods last night?

Does a mother really want to know?

It’s what Sarah Ellsworth dreamed of. Marriage to her childhood sweetheart, Martin. Living in a historic mansion in Pennsylvania’s most exclusive borough. And Finn, a teenage son with so much promise. Until…A call for help in the middle of the night leads Sarah and Martin to the woods, where they find Finn, injured, dazed, and weeping near his girlfriend’s dead body. Convinced he’s innocent, Sarah and Martin agree to protect their son at any cost and not report the crime.

But there are things Sarah finds hard to reconcile: a cover-up by Martin’s family that’s so unnervingly cold-blooded. Finn’s lies to the authorities are too comfortable, too proficient, not to arouse her suspicions. Even the secrets of the old house she lives in seem to be connected to the incident. As each troubling event unfolds, Sarah must decide how far she’ll go to save her perfect life.
