    A great read.

    Held my interest to the end which has a surprise twist. I liked it so much I recommended it for our bookclub and we are reading it for next month.

    The Seduction of Water by Carol Goodman

    The story was not credible and the passages at the beginning of each chapter meant to be original, were boring. I only finished the book as a commitment to my book club.
    I would recommend Gertrude Bell, Queen of the Desert by G. Howell, Original Sin and The LightHouse by PD James and Rising Tide--Mississippi Flood of 1927 by J. Barry. These books were loved by my book club. No one liked Seduction of Water except the gal whose turn it was to select a book.

    for lovers of fairy tales

    i thought it was an OK book, nothing spectacular, a twist or two leads to a predictable ending.i am not a fan of fairy tales, maybe that's what left me cold.

    'Lyrical!'

    A book reviewer uses the word 'alluring' in describing this book. I completely agree. The plot is intriguing, the prose is beautifully descriptive and the reader feels the emotions of the characters. I loved reading this book!

    disappointing

    I was quite disappointed with this book. I just finished the author's previous book, 'The Lake of Dead Languages' (which was wonderful) and ran right out to buy 'The Seduction of Water.' It sounded like it had all the elements for a great read. It just never picked up momentum for me. The main character was self absorbed and annoying and the 'mystery' was predictable and full of cliches. The only redeeming quality of this book was its great descriptions of the Catskills region of NY... and I can buy a travel guide for that!
