There’s a place just south of town that people hide their secrets. The police call it the killing field. Seven bodies have been unearthed there in the past thirteen years. Four of those were in the last few months alone. If you ask me, this whole town is a killing field, riddled with corrupted innocence and decaying youth.

Nothing ever changed here. Maybe that's why I was d

SOMETHING IN THE WATER: Is a 'New Adult' stand-alone novel by Teresa Mummert. In this we meet Emery and Ford. Spoken in 'Dual POV's.

Going into this I expected to land in the killing field itself, which between you and I, I was secretly looking forward too. But funnily enough that doesn’t make an appearance until you near the end. And that's when the synopsis starts to make sense in a roundabout way. So I was slightly confused up to that point. Though I still enjoyed this intricate tale

Emery and Ford story, is told from dual POV. When Ford moves to the town where Emery lives, then the intrigue begins. This book has mature topics even though the characters are teenagers. There is drama and enough mystery in the story that will keep you captivated. The loved the characters I am looking forward for the next book by Teresa Mummert.

Ahhh another gripping novel by Teresa Mummert! How I've missed reading her books. This books has all the drama and twists and turns you'd expect from her stories. You'll fall in love with the characters and the storyline and keep turning the pages because you just can't get enough. Loved every single minute of this 5 star read!

Teresa Mummert has been an all-time favorite author of mine for years and so when I saw she was coming out with a new novel I just had to jump at the opportunity to devour it. This is a New Adult standalone that is told from dual POV’s, Emery and Ford. This book holds a lot of deep situations, and as the synopsis says…Something in the Water may be triggering to some and isn’t intended for young audiences even though the main characters are in their teens.

Wow, such a beautifully written story. Filled with love and angst with a twist and turn. Once I started I couldn’t put it down until I had finished the book.

Wild bad boy moves in next door to the innocent sheltered girl. Emery lived with her nose in a book and tail between her legs. She followed rules while Ford broke them. They were polar opposites, yet they spent one wild night together that changed both their lives.

It didn’t start off great. In fact it really never took off. I’m still processing this story concept.
For one all these characters had issues which overcrowded the story. Emery’s issues were hard to pinpoint and even harder to

I thought this was supposed to be a mystery novel, and it turned out to be a young adolescent love story. Not what I was in the mood for, and not a developed enough plot at all. Three stars because it was an easy read.

It’s not a mystery. Just run of the mill YA romance where everybody has a sad past. It took forever to finish.

This author has a way with words and she didn’t disappoint. I loved the book. I’ve been waiting for a long while for a new book. I finished it in less than a day.

My only complaints are that it wasn’t long enough (in a good way) and that we didn’t get a glimpse into their future.

I’ll be over here, just waiting for the next one!

Innocent Emery and the secrets she carries and Ford with his bad ass attitude come together in a great story of opposites. Creating a connection, overcoming life and unravelling dirty secrets that only a small town could almost get away with.

I was so excited to get my hands on another Teresa Mummert book. It has been awhile. This book was not the norm I'm used to by Mummert. It had so many feels. And will have you on the edge of your seat. It was filled with so much angst. I'm so excited she is writing is again.
