REESE RAVES ABOUT A ‘DOWNTON ABBEY’ STAR’S DEBUT
Like her A Wrinkle in Time co-star Oprah before her, actress Reese Witherspoon has her own Reese’s Book Club. For the 572,000 Instagram followers she’s garnered so far, Witherspoon selects a book each month that celebrates women’s writing.
In June, Downton Abbey actress Catherine Steadman (inset) made the list with her first novel, Something in the Water, which Witherspoon praised as “a psychological thriller that captivated me from page one. What unfolds makes for a wild, page-turning ride! It’s the perfect read.”
Honeymooners Mark and Erin are scuba diving in Bora Bora when they find something in the deep blue, something they decide to keep to themselves. That doesn’t stop a wave of consequences from crashing on their shores.
Steadman spins a page-turner for which Witherspoon, as she did with Gone Girl, has already optioned the film rights.
“It starts with a beautiful honeymoon that turns into a web of intrigue,” teased Witherspoon to Reese’s Book Club members.
Something in the Water. Written by Catherine Steadman. Published by Simon & Schuster Australia. RRP $35.00.
