Review: The Drowning Woman by Robyn Harding

The latest domestic suspense novel from Robyn Harding is a deliciously dark tale that grips you by the throat from the first page and never lets go.

Lee Gulliver has seen better days. After being forced to close her restaurant during the pandemic, she lost everything. Her home, her family, her dreams. Now she works in a diner and lives in her car, one of the many homeless citizens in the Seattle area. One night she chooses to sleep on a street in an affluent neighborhood by the beach and is awoken to the sound of a woman sobbing. Hazel Laval lives in the mansion above the water and to all appearances has everything she could ever want. But of course, nothing is ever as it appears. When Hazel wades into the waves, clearly intending to kill herself, Lee chooses to dive in and save her. This act creates an unlikely but indelible bond between them, setting both women on a path towards a deadly crossroads.

Told from the perspective of both Lee and Hazel, Harding weaves a fast-paced and thrilling story about friendship and betrayal, where no one is telling the truth and everyone has something to hide. There were so many times where I thought I had it all figured out, only to be hit with another twist that left me with my jaw on the floor. 

Robyn Harding is an autobuy author for me and THE DROWNING WOMAN is her best book yet. Make sure you grab yourself a copy when it releases on June 13. Better yet, pre-order your copy HERE.

Thanks so much to Grand Central Publishing for the advance reading copy.
