Drowning with Others
Drowning with Others | Linda Keir
10 posts | 7 read | 10 to read
They have the perfect marriage. Did one of them kill to get it? Prep school sweethearts Ian and Andi Copeland are envied by everyone they know. They have successful businesses, a beautiful house in St. Louis, and their eldest daughter, Cassidy, is following in their footsteps by attending prestigious Glenlake Academy. Then, a submerged car is dredged from the bottom of a swimming hole near the campus. So are the remains of a former writer-in-residence who vanished twenty years ago--during Ian and Andi's senior year. When Cassidy's journalism class begins investigating the death, Ian and Andi's high school secrets rise to the surface. Each has a troubled link to the man whose arrival and sudden disappearance once set the school on edge. And each had a reason to want him gone. As Cassidy unwittingly edges closer to the truth, unspoken words, locked away for decades, will force Ian and Andi to question what they really know--about themselves, about the past, and about a marriage built on a murderous lie.

A great escapist tale about the mysterious disappearance of a teacher at a prestigious prep school, told through the eyes of a family. The parents were at the school at the time and the daughter is now a student 20 years‘ later. The story is told through diary entries, flashbacks and the investigations of the journalism class.

@KarenUK was it you who said that you loved books set in liberal arts colleges? This is a prep school but still.... 😁

Mehso-so

Knowing that “Linda Keir” is not one person but two, I was acutely aware of stylistic inconsistencies. The story was interesting enough that I didn‘t bail, but the prose is meh. No mental energy required, but no great reward offered for the little effort required. So-so.

This falls between so-so and pick for me. I feel like the writing was a little inconsistent but I also found myself very interested in finding out what happened so I never thought of bailing. It was entertaining and dealt with some heavy topics without feeling heavy.

Snow falling outside plus a snuggly blanket and an interesting mystery inside adds up to a wonderful day.

By the time I realized this book wasn't going to get any better, I was too invested in the story and finished to find out how everything will come together. I found it a little too neat but I do appreciate it acknowledge student-teacher relationships in a way that it can open the door for conversation with teenagers. The "past" was well written but the "present" was too much of a reach - No depth but a ton of whining. Pass. #teamsleep

A good mystery and a hard look at how far we‘ll go to preserve the legacy of a family or institution.
