This book is primarily about the people of a small community that nearly disappeared when the river was dammed to create a lake. This was done in 1937 to wipe out yellow fever. In doing so, they drowned many of the inhabitants of the town while they were asleep.
Now, years later, Cassie runs the antiques shop her granddad began and lives along the lake. However, she can't stand to look at the lake. She remembers her first friend Catfish, who taught her to swim, but after a fateful event, Cassie won't go in the water. Her brother Bolt, neighbor Mitch, and young women Lark and June also figure prominently in this novel, as the town grapples with the ghosts of its past.
Some supernatural parts.

Thank you to Netgalley for the ARC!

What a beautiful book. As someone who grew up going to the same beach every summer, that bone deep nostalgia really hit home for me, and my god the writing was GORGEOUS. The only thing I'd say was I had trouble finding the story in some parts, but near the middle/end it really sang, story and writing.

Ii was expecting more of a southern noir mystery. This book wasn’t that. This book had elements of magic and maybe a bit supernatural. It glossed over far to much of the huh e history of the town before it was flooded, and it focused to much on the 3 main characters but not revealing very much that was all that interesting.
That being said the two first time authors who go by the name Quinn Connor write quite beautifully and descriptively, and do a good job of describing the atmosphere of the place.
I would definitely read another book by them.
