Pulling Me Under by Rebecca Berto

Pulling Me Under by Rebecca Berto

Book Description
Paul was Katie’s rock for thirteen years, but then she watched him die.

By day, she is left with her daughter Ella’s questions about where Daddy went, and at night she's consumed with nightmares of the moment he died. It isn’t long before Katie’s mother hints that her volatile lifestyle and developing drinking habits are no way to raise a little girl.

Through it all, her and Paul’s best friend, Liam is there. Grieving the death of both husband and friend, the time they spend together seems more intimate these days, and Katie soon stumbles into taboo territory: Liam might be in love with her.

Torn between Liam’s feelings and losing Ella, one night Katie runs.

Air. Space. Thinking time. That's what she thinks she's getting when she stumbles upon that party. In the morning, in a strange bed, she can’t remember the night before. 

Pulling Me Under is raw in its brutality of love and pain, with slow-building suspense to a heart-stopping conclusion.

Brenda's Review

This is a heart felt story about life,love and loss.Learning how to deal with it and learning the hard way. I loved and hated this character in this story,I felt sorry for her but at the same time I just wanted to shake the crap out of her for all the wrong choices she was making.This story just pulls you into so many different emotions,I felt like it was all happening to me!

Katie watched her husband of fifteen years die.She is faced with trying to go on with her life without him.But with her nightmares of Pauls death and her daughter asking where daddy went,she is falling under.

Katie turns to drinking to dull the pain.Her mother surely doesn't help.Her mother blames Katie for all the miscarrages she had in her life.Says Katie killed all of babies,it was all Katie's fault they had died and that she was cursed.

When Katie stumbles upon a party.All the wrong people are there and before long things take a turn for the worse for Katie.This is the point of the story that really gets to you. This is when I really wanted to shake some sense into her.But the ending kind of made up for all that anguish.I was glad to see how things ended up for her and her daughter.
