Genre: Mystery


Book Synopsis


It is hard enough being famous and not rich. When a stalker enters the picture, reality TV has never seemed so real. Ambitious personal trainer Cassidy Novak has gained fame for starring on Sink or Swim, a hit reality show. Not only does she lose and have to walk the plank, but after the game show ends, the terror begins.

Upon returning home, Cassidy discovers she has attracted a stalker masterminding his own twisted game. She struggles to focus on her health club job and celebrity endorsement opportunities, but her stalker has other plans. As her former competitors get knocked off one-by-one, Cassidy refuses to play by the stalker's bizarre rules.

She's also being shadowed by hunky cowboy photographer Zach Gallagher, who has been assigned to capture her personal moments for a spread in the local newspaper. She wants to trust the mysterious Zach, yet fears he may not be what he seems. When the stalker forces a showdown, Cassidy must once again walk the plank...this time for her life.

A #1 Kindle Bestseller in the Women Sleuths and Romantic Suspense Categories and a fun beach read endorsed by contestants from Survivor, Big Brother, and The Amazing Race.

Abha C's Review


Cassidy is a strong, motivated woman with some dreams and ambitions. What I really like about Sink or Swim is that Cassidy isn't a helpless female. She is strong and willing to fight for herself and for what she believes is right.

The back drop of the book is a reality game show or rather the book starts at the last episode of "Sink or Swim". It quickly turns into a murder mystery with a few twists and turns. There is also some budding romance. Sink or swim is an easy read and I would give it my three and a half stars.

The main reason why it didn't score higher for me is that Cassidy's character could have been portrayed better. The author focused on her indecision very well but didn't develop the character as much as I would have liked. Some of the supporting characters could have been better portrayed as well.
