About The Book

Georgie, Lissa, and Bronwyn have been inseparable since dominating their college swim team; swimming has always been an escape from their own problems, but now their shared passion has turned deadly. How can it be true that Lissa, the strongest swimmer they know, drowned? Granted, there is something strange about Kanu Cove, where Lissa was last seen, swimming off the coast of the fabulous island resort she owned with her husband.
Lissa’s closest friends gather at the resort to honor her life, but Georgie and Bron can’t seem to stop looking over their shoulders. Danger lurks beneath the surface of the crystal-clear water, and even their luxurious private villas can’t help them feel safe. As the weather turns ominous, trapping the funeral guests together on the island, nobody knows who they can trust. Lissa’s death was only the beginning…


My Thoughts

I always love intriguing titles that put you in the killer’s perspective; also, if you want to kill your best friend it means that there’s something dark in the background, meaning that the friendship has turned into hate… am I right?
This is the story of three friends; Georgie, Lissa, and Bronwyn; they have been best friends since they were young and all are really good swimmers. So how is it possible that Lissa drowned? And why does Georgie and Bronwyn not seem sad with the death of their best friend? Did something happen and they are covering it? Of course you’ll have to read the book if you want to know all the answers!
This is a book of twists and secrets; told between two different characters it’s impossible to not plot your own guesses and stories while you are reading this book. Who is lying and who is telling the truth? Is everything what it seems or is something much more dangerous on the planning?
I have to say that I really enjoyed this book, it was intriguing and kept me wondering what was happening behind the curtain. It’s a book easy to read and easy to lose time while you are enjoying this story. Also, it was quite interesting reading the advice on how to kill your best friend in every chapter! 😉
I have to say that it’s not the first time I’ve read from Lexie Elliott and I love her style and the way she makes the reader guess for the truth!

About The Author

Lexie Elliott has been writing for as long as she can remember, but she began to focus on it more seriously after she lost her banking job in 2009 due to the Global Financial Crisis. After some success in short story competitions, she began planning a novel. With two kids and a (new) job, it took some time for that novel to move from her head to the page, but the result was “The French Girl”, which will be published by Berkley in February 2018 – available to pre-order now!
When she’s not writing, Lexie can be found running, swimming or cycling whilst thinking about writing. In 2007 she swam the English Channel solo. She won’t be doing that again. In 2015 she ran 100km, raising money for Alzheimer Scotland. She won’t be doing that again either. But the odd triathlon or marathon isn’t out of the question.
