He confesses to her that he feels the same way about her. Matt kisses her goodnight and tells her he has to meet his cousin, Rose, and ensure she gets home safely from the prom. Later that night, Matt is involved in a car accident which results in him being left in a coma. Rose confronts Gabi and blames her for the accident, telling her that she and Matt are in love and she is expecting his child. Gabi is horrified, but agrees to a meeting with Rose out of town at a nearby pond. The events that follow will affect many lives. One of the girls will be murdered and the other charged with the crime. Prepare to be taken on a journey of intrigue, love and suspense.
If you enjoy a story that has twists, turns and surprises throughout, then The Remains in the Pond by Ann Swann is the perfect book for you. The way the writer has woven such detail into her characters and story lines is amazing. Each character is well constructed and the dialogue is perfect for each character. Ann Swann can build a scene that is so realistic it touches every one of your senses. A superb story from start to finish with tension and thrills throughout. The ending was not at all what I was expecting, but this story is far from run of the mill murder mystery. When I thought I knew what was going to happen, the author would take me in another direction. This is a perfect story for anyone who likes a good thriller and whodunit.
