For Iris Greenfeder—all but published, all but a professor, and all but married to her boyfriend of ten years—the sudden impulse to write a story about her mother, Katherine, leads to a shot at literary success. The piece recounts an eerie Irish fairy tale her mother used to tell her at bedtime—and nestled inside is the sad story of her mother’s death, a strange, untimely end in a fire thirty years ago. When Iris returns to the remote Hotel Equinox in the Catskills, the place where she grew up, to write her mother’s biography and search for her mother’s missing manuscript, she unravels a haunting mystery that threatens to envelop her.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Seduction enchants with its fairy-tale motif and sensuous atmospherics.” People
“Truly a seductive reading experience…Grabs the reader on the first page and holds on for the entire journey.” Denver Post
“An atmospheric thriller, but a smart one with a racing story line.” New York
“Like the best mysteries, The Seduction of Water offers puzzles and twists galore but still tells a human story.” Boston Globe
“[A] taut thriller…another home run for Carol Goodman…The Seduction of Water combines folk tales and gothic horror with a thoroughly modern story…Though this is the kind of book you’ll stay up late reading, don’t go so fast you miss the beautiful lyrical writing. Burlington Free Press
“Mystery, folklore, a thoroughly modern romance, a strong sense of place,  and a winning combination of erudition and accessibility make this second novel a treat.” Publishers Weekly
“Goodman establishes herself as a writer to watch in the field of literary thrillers. Sure to be in demand in most public libraries.” Library Journal
“Gripping…Entrancing…A completely involving mystery cleverly tied in with several fairy tales.” Booklist
