The Swimming Pool Read Online Free - It's summer, and for teachers Ed and Natalie Steele this means six weeks off work with their young daughter Molly. Their lives are predictable and uncomplicated -- or at least they were until they meet the Faulkners.
Suddenly, glamorous Lara Channing, a former actress leading an eccentrically lavish lifestyle, is taking Natalie under her wing and the stability of summer takes an exciting turn.
But are there hidden motives behind this new friendship? And when the end-of-summer party at the lido is cut short by a blackout, Natalie realizes that she's been kept in the dark all along.

The Swimming Pool is incredibly creepy for a story, thrilling and original and unlike most other thrillers in that at first, it seems almost a mundane book about friendship - until it takes a sudden turn for the bizarre. :)

The Sudden Departure of the Frasers was one of my favourite twisty tales of last year, one of those impulse purchases that turns into a favourite, so I was REALLY looking forward to “The Swimming Pool” and boy was that one addictive. And twisty. And distracting because when the end came I was “re...

An enjoyable read. Was a little drawn out but it really picked up the last portion of the book- loved the twist at the end (thought I had it figured out but I honestly didn't).

I loved the characters in this book and just know that I am going to be coming back to them in my mind in the future. Not always likeable people, they are extremely entertaining to read about in this story of what can happen if you “friend upwards”. I think a lot of us can relate to that desire o...

Oh my God! THAT ending! Louise has bowled me over with yet another very cleverly written novel with twists that are outstanding. Full gushing review to come but put this on your to-read list and grab it from NetGalley.

I'm not going to lie, I skipped chunks of this because otherwise I would've just given up. The whole story just dragged on so much and was so boring. Yeah, there were some okay plot twists but nothing worth putting up with the rest of the story for. I didn't even like the characters or the settin...

The Swimming Pool gets my recommendation as a must-read novel of the summer, preferably by your own swimming pool, the sounds and the smells enhancing the wonderful backdrop to this scary tale about female friendship.
When previously staid, middle-aged teacher Natalie Steele hears that the swimmin...

I had never read any Louise Candlish books until last year when I picked up the wonderful The Sudden Departure of the Fraser's after a recommendation. Now though, after reading The Swimming Pool I can confidently add her to the list of authors that I trust impeccably. Enough so that I will pre or...

The Swimming Pool was a disappointing read for me, as Is so often the case in the psychological thriller genre the story made its intentions far too clear from the outset and whilst this novel had an appetising premise, there was very little substance over the course of the following 450 pages to...

The Swimming Pool is one of those books that you know something awful has happened in the opening chapter but have no idea what or to whom. This then becomes a nerve-wracking, tension filled journey to find out. Similar to The Sudden Departure of the Frasers I personally found the main character...
