I received this book to give an honest review.
This was an okay book, a bit of romance and sadness.
We are introduced to Cathy who doesn't seem to have a lot of fear, especially in the water.
When she meets Marc it is like her whole world has changed. She has fallen in love, as the two move into a relationship we see how it blossom's yet happiness won't be forever.
We learn about why Marc doesn't surf anymore and it is quite tragic, though reasonable for him not to. A bit of time goes on and when Marc suddenly disappears Cathy is worried he is the victim of a shark attack but he doesn't surf remember? She starts to go on a search for the shark that has killed him but will she ever find it?
Some of the things that Cathy did bother me. The way she would handle the things she found of Marc's instead of leaving it where it needed to be. The whole police investigation needed to be done a lot better because there is no way they would be talking to the victims' girlfriend and giving her updates when she could be a suspect.
Also, why was her sister pushing her to find romance with her friend Chris not soon after Marc went missing? I mean really? Like the dude hasn't even been gone a full month and you want her to be with someone who she has a connection with through the sharks? Needs to work on that just a bit.
Though it had its offsets in the story it was okay, took me a bit to finish. I think mostly because I couldn't relate to Cathy once she went to start finding Marc.
