BOOK GIVEAWAY & REVIEW: "The Swimming Pool" by Holly LeCraw

This book was well written as it went back and forth into these people's lives. It's filled with betrayals between lovers, husband and wives and their children.

Marcella, an Italian beauty, seems to stray from her husband,after having a few miscarriages and he seems to be satisfied with only daughter, Toni.
Marcella falls in love with Cecil McClatchey, a married father of two and a neighbor,who is also a friend to both her and her husband, Anthony. They have an affair, which ends badly.

Cecil's wife is murdered in her own home,and he is guilt ridden thinking they suspect him. Jed,his son and daughter Callie both suffer greatly over the consequences. Jed starts an affair with Marcella after he goes to her for comfort.

It's filled with psychological problems and secrets and consequences. They are two damaged families struggling to free themselves.

All in all -I thought the story was moving and suspenseful and well written.
