Bethany Kuiper is drawn to the ocean. She is also 17 and never tasted love. But like the fluctuating tide, things are about to change. Summer in Rhode Island is just a vacation...until she meets Tristan Alexander...who completely takes her breath away...leading her to answers...explanations for the silent beckoning that has been pulling her toward the reckless waves of the sea.
Everything seems perfect. Until two murders are committed in town, upsetting the quaint summertime community. Disturbingly, much of the evidence points to Tristan. Now Bethany is shaken and confused. And distraught by the knowledge that she is still desperately in love. But will she be able to tread the water? Or will she eventually drown?
Unexpectedly, I can’t move.
I have to remind myself to keep stepping forward. The others turn to look at me as I approach.
“Oh, hey, Bethany.” I hear Kate say. But all I can see is him.
As he hears my name, he too glances my way and we make eye contact for the first time. I feel myself flush as I try to look away, but what I see in his face catches me off guard. For just a moment, he stares hard at me as if in shock or as if he recognizes me in some way. Not wanting to appear awkward or insecure, I resist the urge to look over my shoulder to see if his reaction is meant for someone else. But almost instantaneously, his initial expression is replaced with his former, more casual one, and I am left to wonder whether I imagined the whole thing.
It's all good since she runs into the boy who stole her heart so many years ago. Tristan is everything right that is until two mysterious murders happen and the evidence points to him. Bethany is determined to save the boy who helped her to learn how to swim so long ago, but will her simple trust will be her own undoing?
