The Drowning Girls

The Drowning Girls by Paula Treick DeBoard


If you are a fan of Lifetime movies then here is a book right up your alley.  In it we meet a family who moves into a lavish, gated community called The Palms (even the name screams wealth) who come to learn that the inhabitants of this development are shrewd and superficial.  This Real Housewives tale turns into a psychological thriller once the husband, and newly appointed Community Relations specialist, meets his stepdaughter’s new best friend.  The reader gets to see how multiple lives can be destroyed through the harassment of one beautiful, but disturbed teenage girls.  The author tells the story from three viewpoints: the husband, the wife, and the daughter.  The book starts off with a horrific accident occurring and the narratives are written in different time frames: pre-event, and post event.  This adds to the page turning need! Think of this book as Real Housewives meets Lolita meets Swimfan.
