Something in the Water by Catherine Steadman

Anyone a member of an online bookclub? I have three I try to keep up, PBS Newshour, Oprah, and Reese Witherspoon's Hello Sunshine. Something in the Water is the Hello Sunshine pick of the month and the description sounded really interesting AND I just happened to have a digital copy provided to me by NetGalley so I dove (no pun intended) right in.

Something in the Water is about a couple on honeymoon in Bora Bora who, as the title gives away, find something in the water. Something potentially dangerous for them to have in their possession but circumstances in their lives leading up to this point make keeping what they find too tempting to pass up. There is mystery and danger and a general sense of not knowing who to trust.

Except....and I'm gonna get kind of spoilery here without completely giving anything away...it's SO blatantly obvious who not to trust. But, being spoiled by stories like Gone Girl and The Girl on the Train, I kept thinking I HAD to be wrong, that I would eventually be rewarded with some kind of big twist that I didn't see coming. But that never happened and I ended up feeling really let down by this one. Don't get me wrong, I really enjoyed Catherine Steadman's writing style, but the story itself was a disappointment.

Have you read this one? Let me know your thoughts in the comments...I'm curious to know if anyone else felt the same way about this one.
