Thanks to the publisher and NetGalley for providing me a copy of this clever suspense read!
Initially, I thought the book was going to be an evenly-paced suspense with hidden plots. It may seem like that at first, but the author is just laying out a multi-layered plot that will hit you full-speed, so pay attention!
Eva Hansen can't remember anything that happened the night she was struck by lightning. When she finds out her mother was murdered--possibly by her--Eva struggles to put the pieces back together. And with little help. The detective is not buying her "can't remember" story.
The book also goes back in time to tell us how Eva's mother, Kat, got to this point in her life. I found her backstory very interesting, and again, one that you want to pay attention to every detail.
Behind every lie is a story full of secrets, deceit, love, courage, and determination. Great read!

Neve Maguire and her daughter, Ash, make a hasty retreat to her childhood summer home after a violent home invasion. The morning after their arrival, their neighbor’s house is swarming with police after a body is found in the lake. This sets off a series of events that are questionable. Things just not what they seem. Jess Lambert is the Detective in charge of this case. She is dealing with her own pain and uses alcohol to deaden the pain. This really makes to reader question everything!

Part thriller, part paranormal mystery. This book is not at all what I expected, but so much more. Love this author for her storyline twists and this one did not disappoint. Story told in 3 voices (Neve, Jess and the killer) which adds to the suspense. A little slow moving in some parts but the last 25% takes off. I love when I can pick up a book and it’s over before I know it. First in a series and I’m already looking forward to Book 2 and more of Jess’ story. This books gives you a lot to think about. Two women with secrets, guilt and nothing but love for their children. While I enjoyed Neve’s story, Jess was so easy to connect with. The ending was emotional.

If the author's name didn’t already sell me on the book, the eerily beautiful cover would. I’m a sucker for a great cover and this one isn’t disappoint. The beauty that is seen on the outside isn’t the same as the pain hiding underneath.

Thanks to Thomas & Mercer and NetGalley for this ARC. This is my honest opinion.

What secret have Neve and Bee been keeping since childhood?

Why did Neve run away from her home and head to the house where she had always spend her summers?

And… where was Bee when she arrived? She always was there when Neve arrived.

Lots of secrets kept present and past.

We bounce back-and-forth with the characters as we find out about their past and what’s happening in the present.

There also is an unidentified narrator.

THESE STILL BLACK WATERS is very mysterious, and the characters are pretty much on the odd side.

The book includes some paranormal and has a wild ending.

It is a little confusing, but don’t give up.

If you like not knowing who did what and when they did it, this book is for you. 4/5

Thank you to the publisher for an advanced copy of this book. All opinions are my own.
