Book Review Of “Undertow” By Elizabeth Heathcote

They said her death was a tragic accident. And I believed them…until now.

Carmen is happily married to Tom, although she knows she’ll always live in the shadow of another woman—the mistress who ended his first marriage: Zena. Mercurial, mesmerizing, manipulative Zena—a woman who, Carmen begins to discover, had the potential to incite the darkest of emotions. Zena, who drowned in the sea late one night.

Zena seems ever-more present, even in death, and when Carmen unknowingly stumbles on evidence that her husband has not been telling her the whole truth, she can’t shake her unease. As she uncovers documents and photographs, a very different tale than the one Tom has led her to believe begins to unfold, and she finds herself increasingly isolated and paranoid. As the twisted events of that night begin to come to light, Carmen must ask herself if it’s really a truth worth knowing…even if it destroys her and the lives of the people she loves most (From Goodreads)

I rate this book a 4 star out of 5

I picked up this book a few nights ago, and within pages I was completely absorbed in the story. I love a good domestic thriller, and this one kept me on my toes, and kept my mind reeling. I had so many idea’s, and so many theories about what happened to Zena.

Undertow was so wonderfully written, you can’t  resist the pull it has on you, constantly begging you to read it. I found myself setting an alarm to wake up before my kids, so I could get some quiet reading time before they woke up.

I really enjoyed Carmen’s character, and I admired the fact she was strong, and no-nonsense. And the ending, oh my gosh, I love that it didn’t end like a majority of domestic thrillers do. It was such a pleasure to read and review.  A HUGE thanks to Park Row Books for letting me review this fascinating book. This is a book I will recommend to everyone I meet!
