Book review: Poison In the Water by Marissa De Luna

Poison in the Water: Lies, Deceit, and a Love Story that Must be Told. Yes that is the full title of Marissa De Luna’s romance/mystery thriller. 


This is the story of fashion designer Celeste Broady. The novel begins with Broady on vacation backpacking in Asia. At the airport in Celeste meets Alex Renshaw. Their romance is intense and passionate. Soon they return to London and their respective careers and families. And here is where the twists and turns take place, is Celeste really married to the man of her dreams, can she manage to maintain her independence and grow in her career when she must also take on the new responsibilities of being a Renshaw. 

What De Luna does very well is show the intensity of toxic relationships, not just lovers but friendships as well  and how persons can be blinded by love. 

Poison in the Water is one of the newest books by So Vain Publishers. Thanks to So Vain Books for sharing this book with me. 

Poison in the Water will be released tomorrow, May 26, 2016. 

Goodreads Summary

Career-driven fashion designer Celeste Broady meets the man of her dreams while traveling in Thailand. Alex Renshaw seems to have it all: the charm, the charisma and the wealth. After a whirlwind wedding, they move to Hong Kong and soon become the most glamorous power couple amongst the glitterati of the city. She is living her dream.

But the higher you climb, the further you have to fall. With Alex’s career blossoming, he’s increasingly away from home, and when his hedonistic and philandering best friend Bill arrives bringing with him a yacht and a decadent lifestyle, Celeste is forced to compete for her husband’s attention.

Her confidence in her fairytale marriage soon begins to fade, and when she stumbles over a dark secret, she realises she is in too deep and there is only one way out.
