Poison in the Water, Lies, deceit, and a love story that must be told.  Marissa de Luna


Genre:  Romance, Women’s Fiction

A strange read for me, bringing mixed feelings about my enjoyement of the story. Its well written and I enjoyed the start but when things went wrong for Celeste they went wrong for me too. I could have dealt with what happened if there’d been a happy ending but though its a romance read its not one that ends well. For me that’s essential, and the lack made this novel a fail for me. There were parts I really enjoyed, but overall I felt just sad at the way things ultimately worked out.

It didn’t work for me but that’s down to my personal taste and a need for a HEA, not that the story itself isn’t good. Reading is very subjective. If you’re happy to enjoy the journey and not worry about the ending you could find this a great read. It’s well written and the deception builds up very cleverly, leading the reader to wonder exactly what’s going on and whether Alex is right when he puts her fears down to stress and paranoia or Celeste really is being deceived.

Stars: two and a half– parts I enjoyed but overall just didn’t cut it for me sadly.

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on amazon.co.uk for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
