Bleed the Water Red by R.L. Griffin

Release date: March 23, 2017

When Kate Tennison returns to the low country of South Carolina it’s with her tail tucked between her legs. She doesn’t want to be there and face the love of her life, who’s now married with a child. Distance has not broken the spell of fear that surrounds why she ran from her home in the first place.

Her story is a tragic one.

Mom in rehab.

Father dead.

Career annihilated.

When we run from something looking back over our shoulder, we miss the scars on the arms that now hold us.

Can the magic of the water heal her wounded heart or does something dangerous lurk underneath the perfect features of the new man she’s decided to take a chance on?



4.5 Stars

Where do I start, how do I start?! I want to say everything about this book but can’t, I won’t spoil anything, but my mind is blown! Without a doubt R.L. Griffin is one of my all time favorites, I love her words and what she can do with a story. For me she is the queen of ‘be careful what you wish for’ and she always keeps me on my toes. Bleed the Water Red is no exception to that, this story is powerful, it’s emotional and it is twisted!

Kate is a broken woman, she’s returning to her hometown even though it’s the last place she wants to be. At least she has her best friend Poppy and the water. She wants love, she wants to be happy but she’s all to familiar with pain, pain seems to follow her no matter where she is. There’s old love and new love in store for her, but not everyone is she thinks they are.

There is so much I want to say about this story, to break down all the moments and the characters but I can’t do that! There’s a slow build to the beginning of this story, really getting to know these characters and then the twists start coming and I couldn’t put it down! There is a brutal honesty to this story, a rawness you can feel. Life certainly doesn’t always go the way you planned it and even when it seems like it is lies can tear it to shreds.

I love what R.L. Griffin did with this story! She took me on a twisted, mind-fuck ride and it was brilliant! These characters are complex and phenomenal, even the ones you want to kill. Bleed the Water Red kept me guessing, R.L. Griffin shocked me to my core a few times, making me question my own sanity. This book must be experienced – lies, pain, honesty, lost love, found love and hope. Another amazing book from R.L. Griffin!
