(Audio) The Girl Who Stopped Swimming by Joshilyn Jaskson


I’ve read and listened to all 3 of Ms. Jackson’s book. Reading wise, this one came in third. But comes in second on audio for me. I really wish they would get the person that read the first one to read her books. I realize she probably likes doing it herself, the author, but the first one was the perfect for her style of writing. Having said that, you can tell she has practiced a bit more, a little more relaxed. It kept my attention and I did catch a few things that I didn’t while reading it, which is unusual. Definitely worth a listen. Great author that has come into her own.

Product Description
Laurel Gray Hawthorne needs to make things pretty. Coming from a family with a literal skeleton in their closet, she’s developed this talent all her life, whether helping her willful mother to smooth over the reality of her family’s ugly past, or elevating humble scraps of unwanted fabric into nationally acclaimed art quilts.

Her sister Thalia, an impoverished “Actress” with a capital A, is her opposite, and prides herself in exposing the lurid truth lurking behind life’s everyday niceties. And while Laurel’s life was neatly on track, a passionate marriage, a treasured daughter, and a lovely home in lovely suburban Victorianna, everything she holds dear is thrown into question the night she is visited by an apparition in her bedroom. The ghost appears to be her 14-year-old neighbor Molly Dufresne, and when Laurel follows this ghost , she finds the real Molly floating lifeless in her swimming pool. While the community writes the tragedy off as a suicide, Laurel can’t. Reluctantly enlisting Thalia’s aid, Laurel sets out on a life-altering investigation that triggers startling revelations about her own guarded past, the truth about her marriage, and the girl who stopped swimming.
