The Lost Swimmer by Ann Turner

8:30 pm 0 Comments A+ a-

Rebecca Wilding, an archaeology professor, traces the past for a living.

But suddenly, truth and certainty is turning against her. Rebecca is accused of serious fraud, and worse, she suspects – she knows – that her husband, Stephen, is having an affair.

Desperate to find answers, Rebecca leaves with Stephen for Greece, Italy and Paris, where she can uncover the conspiracy against her, and hopefully win Stephen back to her side, where he belongs. There’s too much at stake – her love, her work, her family.

But on the idyllic Amalfi Coast, Stephen goes swimming and doesn’t come back.

In a swirling daze of panic and fear, Rebecca is dealt with fresh allegations. And with time against her, she must uncover the dark secrets that stand between her and Stephen, and the deceit that has chased her halfway around the world.

A stunning debut about trust from a new Australian voice.




Hey! Here's my review.

Rebecca is an Australian University professor carrying some baggage from her past. She is happily married with two grown children, when she begins to suspect her husband is having an affair. The funding cuts at the University are also placing pressure on Rebecca and then to top it all off, she is placed under investigation for embezzlement involving a European bank. Rebecca and her husband had a European working holiday planned and during this trip Rebecca tries to find out the truth.

Rebecca's paranoia builds and I wasn't sure who to trust until it all came out. The first part of the book is slower paced, building the story but that last part kept me turning the pages! I liked Rebecca and could relate to how she felt at the end of the book. You don't always notice things as they are happening - hindsight has 20:20 vision.

I received this book free from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
