The Drowning Woman - a gripping, twisty thriller.

Lee Gulliver has lost it all. Her New York City restaurant, her family and her reputation. She is now penniless, homeless and living in her car in Seattle. While sitting on the beach, she saves a drowning woman. But the woman, Hazel, did not want to be saved. While living a life of luxury, she is trapped in an abusive marriage. The two women eventually find a common bond and vow to help one another. But at a time when Lee and Hazel need to be able to trust one another, neither can. And a twisty tale of lies and deception begins.

The Drowning Woman by Robyn Harding is a highly effective thriller. It requires some suspension of disbelief, which was ok with me, as the reader is rewarded with a tense rollercoaster ride. This is one of the first books I've read where a main character's unfortunate situation, in Lee's case, a failed restaurant, was a direct result of the pandemic. It made some of her subsequently foolish decisions believable. I enjoyed Harding's fast-paced writing style, which was appreciated as I couldn't put this book down.
