Thank you NetGalley, HQ Digital and Terry Lynn Thomas for the advanced copy. First, I was not aware that this was a part of a series, so I would have liked to have read the previous books in order to know the main characters better, but overall not a problem to follow along with the book. This book was great. It was mystery, thriller, love, and crime all in one. The story keeps you entertained and invested in all the characters. Not to give anything away, but you will be surprised with how the lives of each character turns out. I was really surprised with the biggest “who done it” as my guess was wrong the whole time. Definitely a book I will recommend to others.

Terry Lynn Thomas is the author of a couple of historical mystery series one featuring Sarah Bennett, and one with a protagonist named Cat Carlisle. The Drowned Woman, first released under the title of Neptune's Daughter, is the third in the Sarah Bennett series but is completely stand alone. Sarah is an excellent heroine, The Drowned Woman is a compelling story I am pleased to refer to friends and family. Sarah is receptive to the approach of ghosts. She cannot hear them, but they appear to her with regular frequency and she keeps a pad and pencil handy. This story takes place in California in the spring and summer of 1943. America is at war, food, gasoline, and tires are rationed, meat is almost impossible to find and Sarah and Zeke Caen are newlyweds working in San Francisco. Zeke returned from the war, his brother William, a widower, didn't. Sarah works for and with a psychiatrist, and Zeke works with Wade Conner, a detective of some sort and a childhood friend from their home in Millport, about 6 hours north of SF. Zeke and Sarah are in danger from a crimelord Zeke and Wade have had previous dealings with, and Wade needs them to get out of town - fast. Zeke sees this as a perfect opportunity to introduce his new wife to his family back home, and check up on his baby brother, Simon, a very spoiled young man addicted to gambling and see how things are going at the family-run mill. Traditionally they manufactured velvet for drapes and upholstery, but they have retooled to produce parachute silk for the war effort. Also residing in the family home, Simon, his wife Daphne and young son Toby, the Grandmother to the three sons of William Sr, and an intolerant William Sr, a real dragon of a man. We also have a couple of live-in home aides. And of course, Rachael, the deceased wife of war fatality William Jr. Rachael appears to both Sarah and Toby and she wants Sarah to uncover her murderer. But as the clues to Rachael's death unfold, they seem to point directly to brother-in-law Simon. And it becomes obvious that the cause of her death was not suicide. Both Sarah and Zeke want to solve the mystery behind the death of Rachael, and clues are beginning to surface. The unique jewelry Rachael was wearing the night she drowned have turned up at a shop in Washington state. Someone is systematically stealing expensive jewelry from their circle of friends even to this day. Someone in the know - who knows what to steal and where to find it. And Simon was recently able to pay off some long-standing gambling debts. Every day it looks more like poor Toby will have to grow up without the Dad he adores. I received a free electronic copy of this historical novel from Netgalley, Terry Lynn Thomas, and HQ Digital. Thank you for sharing your hard work with me. I have voluntarily read and reviewed this novel. This is my honest opinion of this work.
