The Darkwater Girls by Maegan Beaumont / #Review #BooksOnTour @bookouture @maeganbeaumont


Georgia Fell #1

Recognition hits me as I look at the woman lying in the long grass. It’s my sister. Her hot-pink nails are chipped and caked with dirt, her blue eyes are cold and vacant. I desperately shake her, even though I know. She’s gone.

Fresh out of the Military Police, Georgia Fell has returned to her Michigan island hometown a decade after she ran away. Late to meet her younger sister at a bar on the isolated tip of the isle, she arrives to her worst nightmare: Rachel dead, purple bruises around her slim, beautiful neck.

When the police rule out murder, Georgia knows it can’t be true. Reluctantly, she must turn to the person she’s been avoiding since she came home. Georgia can’t forgive single dad Lincoln McNamara for his betrayal the night she left, but he has an in with the dangerous crew operating out of the roadhouse where Rachel was killed. The question is, can she trust him?

But before she can convince Lincoln to help her, another local girl goes missing. How deep into the darkness of island life must Georgia go to find out the truth? And with an innocent girl’s life on the line, does she even have a choice?




I love the beginning of a new series and I loved Georgia from the very beginning. I loved her even more at the end of the book. 

Georgia Fell… What’s in a name? She never ‘fell’ once, but always stood strong, fought for what she was worth and never gave up even if she was on the verge of collapsing.

I loved the structure of the story. The beginning is in fact the middle and the author takes us back and forth between the past and the present afterwards.

My mind was constantly trying to figure out who to trust. Is the bad guy really as bad as I thought in the beginning? No, it seems like is isn’t, or is he? Or this must be a friend, right? But, once again, people seem to be very good actors or is my feeling going in the wrong direction?

It shows how a first impression can be the correct one, but you can be sooo wrong too.

Georgia… she is so great. A one woman army and she is funny too. I do hope I will read more about her in the near future.

A really great book that left my mind all over the place which is a very good thing in this case. More, please. 😊 5 stars.

Thank you, Maegan Beaumont and Bookouture
