About the book:

The Drowning Woman is a deliciously twisted story of friendship, retribution, and betrayal. The protagonist, Lee Gulliver, never thought she’d find herself living on the streets—no one ever does—but when her restaurant fails, and she falls deeper into debt, she leaves her old life behind with nothing but her clothes and her Toyota Corolla. In Seattle, she parks in a secluded spot by the beach to lay low and plan her next move. Early one morning, she sees a sobbing woman throw herself into the ocean. Lee hauls the woman back to the surface, but instead of appreciation, she is met with fury. The drowning woman, Hazel, tells her that she’s trapped in a toxic, abusive marriage and that she’s a prisoner in her own home. Lee has thwarted her one chance to escape her life.

 

Out of options, Hazel retreats to her gilded cage, and Lee thinks she’s seen the last of her until her unexpected return the next morning. Bonded by disparate but difficult circumstances, the women soon strike up a close and unlikely friendship. And then, one day, Hazel makes a shocking request…

 

Review:

With deceitful characters who are not what they seem, a myriad of unexpected twists and turns, and a story that moves along at high speed, “The Drowning Woman” is everything I love in a thriller. Robyn Harding keeps readers hooked until the end.”

-Mary Kubica, New York Times bestselling author of “Local Woman Missing”
