This is the perfect summer read even if you are stuck in the house since it is raining. The Swimming Pool is a murder-mystery-character driven story with a lot of twists and turns. I had thought that with so many books about adultery and the consequences of it had been done to death, but this one goes beyond the typical family drama. It is hard to describe the story without giving away the plot, so all I am going to say is: READ THIS. Holly LeCrew has also won the Pushcart prize and I am now looking for other authors with this award. I have found that it is a great barometer of the unique writing styles that I love.
