The Cenote Book Review

I love to read. LOVE to read. Before I had children I would read 2-3 books a week. Now I am lucky if I read that many books in a month! I am realizing I need to take a little time to myself and do the things I love, which includes reading. I was super thrilled to be able to read and review  The Cenote by Chelsea Dyreng. The Cenote is an amazing tale that was hard to put down. I wanted to curl up and spend all my time with The Cenote and I did just that!

The Cenote touches on so many different aspects of life. Love, mystery, tragedy, loss, redemption and learning how to forgive and love yourself. The main character, Sandpiper, is sent off for an arranged marriage. She is harboring a secret and must learn how to deal with the consequences. Sandpiper marries Lark and starts her life in a new land.  A new way of life, a new family and place to learn to live with.

I love how we hear from both characters, how The Cenote shows us both sides of the story. There are a few twists and turns in The Cenote which kept me hanging on wanting to see what happens. I did not want to put this book down!

The Cenote is a page turner, edge of your seat, chair gripping book. This is an amazing book for teenagers and adults. There are so many life lessons in The Cenote, everyone can relate and enjoy it. I ignored the dishes and laundry to spend time devouring The Cenote. Chelsea Dyreng is an amazing author and I can not wait to get my hands on her next book!

You can purchase The Cenote online at Barnes & Noble and Amazon for $16.99. You can also purchase The Cenote Kindle edition on Amazon for $6.99. Get up to date news about Chelsea Dyreng on her Facebook page and be the first to know about her new books!


Sandpiper enters into an arranged marriage with a secret she is determined not to reveal. Her new husband Lark has a secret of his own. But the most tragic secret of all is held by the Cenote, a great pool of water in the village Sandpiper is taken to live in. The Cenote mysteriously claims the lives of some of the men in the village and the women must figure out why. As the secrets unfold, Sandpiper and Lark’s relationship is continuously put to the test. When an unthinkable tragedy strikes, Lark and Sandpiper each take personal blame for it. They are then faced with the seemingly impossible task not of forgiving each other, but of forgiving themselves.
