#BookReview: They Drown Our Daughters by Katrina Monroe

Synopsis: For fans of Jennifer McMahon and Silvia Moreno-Garcia comes a haunting and atmospheric new novel from debut author Katrina Monroe.

They say Cape Disappointment is haunted.
That if you can hear the call of the water
It's already too late...

Tourists used to flock to Cape Disappointment in droves to visit the rocky shoreline and the creaky old lighthouse. But the tourists are gone now, and when Meredith Strand returns to her childhood home on the eve of her divorce, young daughter in tow, the Cape seems more haunted by regret than any malevolent force.

But her mother, suffering from Alzheimer's, is convinced the stories are real. Not only is there something in the water, but it's watching them. Waiting for them. Reaching out to Meredith's daughter the way it has to every woman in their line for generations—ready to reclaim what once was stolen.

This title will be released on July 12, 2022.
