THE WATER’S FINE: A NOVEL by Janice Coy is an intriguing women’s fiction story with a suspense sub-plot. This is a standalone book which takes you on a journey into the love and perils of scuba diving, friendship, family and suspense.

Catalina took off immediately after graduating college to work as a scuba dive master. She was going to travel the world for one year, but she is now on her sixth. She is currently on The Calypso and

I rarely seem to be able to enjoy a book from cover to cover, but The Water's Fine by Janice Coy was a huge exception. From the moment I started reading the book, I stayed up way too late too many nights trying to find out what was going to happen next.

Catalina is the main character who works for a diving company. She hasn't been home in many years as she has found that her life abroad is something that she enjoys. She enjoys the time she spends with the ocean as it is then that she feels most

There is a reason I rarely read suspense novels, like those by Mary Higgins Clark. I read two of her books as a teen in the 70’s and they both seemed like they were the same book but with different characters. However, when I read the description or ‘The Water’s Fine’ and saw the scuba diving angle, I was intrigued. I am so glad I decided to give it a try!

Catalina is a scuba diving dive master working on a boat with customers on a scuba diving trip. She has worked on various boats for 6 years

I've always loved the ocean. The dark depths, the mysterious sea creatures, the feeling of absolute solitude when you're out on a boat with only the waves lapping against the side.
“The Water's Fine” by Janice Coy is a book that perfectly recreated everything I love about the ocean...and everything that I find just a little bit chilling.
The book centers around Catalina Rodrigues, a scuba diving instructor who works on a boat called the Calypso and who, despite some complaints, genuinely loves her
Michael Burke

A lot of time spent discussing the difficulties of breathing underwater and of setting the tanks and of personalities but very little excitement and very little suspense going on until about Ⅹ or 12th chapter I had the stop the book there and go on to something different
