Spring Lewis knows death. As a nurse in the ICU, she has experienced more than her fair share of it. The difference is, she is acutely aware not everyone who dies stays in the afterlife.
Vince Roundtree is tired. Tired of living life alone and where his health takes a back seat to his career as a music professor. His nightly walks along the river help clear his head and strengthen his body, but he never expects to find his heart there too.
Spring and Vince find themselves walking a path of forgiveness, understanding, and acceptance, but their rose-colored glasses blind them to the dangerous shadow lurking in the darkness. When Spring breaks her silence about the people in the water, the reaper comes calling, and it will be up to Vince to save her from certain death before time runs out.
Mettner is my favorite contemporary writer of happily-ever-afters. Let’s back up a bit. Our female MC is an ICU nurse, and she meets a guy she end up falling I love with. Through trials and tribulations, and a lot of in depth work on oneself must be dealth with. I’m not writing about the couple and I won’t give anything away. I will say that one nurse is a medium, she sees dead people in their dead states and normal state. Let’s add in an addition of a murderous person killing teenagers every year except for a span of two years. The MO is the same, but no one can obtain evidence to prove that the healthy teenagers killed were actual murders. Accidental drowning? Maybe. Three in one night? It is highly unlikely that three strong kayakers flipped in to the water and each one hitting their head on a rock and dying. The perp is one sick person. Five star read!
Thanks for the great review of Someone in the Water, Mary! I sure appreciate it and I’m glad you enjoyed my little of self-discovery and murder!
