My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Blood Pool will keep you engaged and guessing until the very end. Every time I thought I had it all figured out, the story took a twist, thus proving me wrong.
Samantha (Sam) inherited land and a boat yard business when her husband died of a freak accident. The land should have passed on to the next Shelley male, but they’d had no children so Sam, against many people’s protests, became the sole heir to everything.
In truth, Sam did a better job running the company than her late husband could have ever dreamed of. She has several good friends that she relies on throughout the story.
The story gets really interesting when Sam finds a dead body and then later in the day, someone pulls a gun on her, for no apparent reason (at least not one that we are aware of yet). More of the story begins to unfold when she forgets to check on the Professor until later that night. Sam is a strong and stubborn lead character whom you will find yourself immersed in her feelings and thoughts.
Sam’s story will take you on a winding path of trust, betrayal, confusion, more betrayal and even some romance. Each step that Sam takes to get to the bottom of what is going on with the professor, takes her deeper into a winding road that sends her all the more confused as to who to trust. Each time she thinks she gets it right, she ends up wrong. With so many twists and turns, this story will keep you on the edge of your seat, not wanting to put the it down.
Sam has so many forces working against her, the town, the cops, outsiders, the weather, its makes it difficult to guess how it will all turn out, but I promise you won’t be disappointed. The ending was by far the best twist of all!
