Book Review: At the Water’s Edge

At the Water's EdgeAt the Water’s Edge by Sara Gruen

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

In At the Water’s Edge by Sara Gruen, Maddie, a young beautiful society wife, supports her husband Ellis by traveling with him and his best friend Hank to Scotland during WWII. Ellis is determined to prove his courage to his father through finding proof of the Loch Ness monster. Taken away from luxury and society, Maddie learns more than she expected about herself and her friends.

I felt this book was not as good as her last book Like Water for Elephants, but it was still a good story. I felt did have some good surprises and some good characters. I like the change of character in Maddie, but was disappointed in how little she knew before the trip. Was she blind or just drunk? Overall, I would give this book a 4 out 5. This would be a great summer book, it has a little love, budding friendships, a ghost and some monsters.
