187 - The Water's Lovely; Ruth Rendell
In this audio book mystery thriller, two sets of sisters share a home. Beatrix and Pamela live in the upstairs flat and Ismay and Heather, daughters of Beatrix live downstairs. Some nine years earlier Ismay and Heather's stepfather Guy, was found floating face up in the bathtub.
The sisters still live in the same home and they have not talked about the day their stepfather died. Now, however, since Heather is involved in a serious relationship, her older sister Ismay wonders if this same thing could happen to another man. Ismay is haunted by reoccurring dreams and thoughts about that fateful day when Guy was found dead. She seems to recall Heather pale as a ghost and soaking wet when Guy was found, and why was has that bathroom been sealed off?
My Thoughts - Rosalyn Landor did a great job narrating this book. The author did a terrific job creating doubts and suspicions along the way to hold the listener's interest. At the end of this audio, I was left with a few questions, however, the surprise ending was a treat so I was not disappointed. RECOMMENDED
