Sink or Swim took long to read because it's one of those books that are really good and you want to know what happens but it just didn't have the power to keep me hooked. The plot of the story is good and it keeps you guessing. The mystery was there, but not enough to my liking, there is romance but again not enough to my liking. It is also very predicable. Overall I recommend this book because it's a good story. 

Cassidy is on a hit TV series called Sink or Swim, which is a tournament to win 1 million dollars. The last competition is between Cassidy and Reggie. But when she loses she goes home with nothing, or so she thinks. Once she's back home, she begins going through her fan mail and notices strange letters addressed to her. But that's not what's concerning her, the problem is what's in those letters that she begins to question who this person is and what he wants. She really gets concerned when she receives the same letters at her home address. She  speaks with the police about these letters and gives them copies. But when things magically begin showing up and when murders are involved, Cassidy is unsure whether it's because of her stalker or the person murdered own personal life.

Summary: (from goodreads) 
When reality TV turns to murder, it's sink, swim or die. Ambitious personal trainer Cassidy Novak has gained national fame for starring on Sink or Swim, nicknamed SOS, a hit reality game show set aboard a Tall Ship. She hopes the prize money will help to launch her dream of owning a chain of fitness centers. Not only does she lose the competition and have to walk the plank in the finale, after the game show ends, the terror begins. Upon returning to her small Massachusetts hometown, Cassidy discovers she has attracted a stalker masterminding his own twisted game. She struggles to focus on her health club job and celebrity endorsement opportunities, but her stalker has other plans. As her former competitors get knocked off one-by-one, Cassidy refuses to play by his bizarre rules. She's also being shadowed by hunky photographer Zach Gallagher, who has been assigned to capture her personal moments for a spread in the local newspaper. She wants to trust Zach, but fears he may not be the nice guy that he seems. With or without Zach's help, when the stalker forces a showdown by threatening her family, Cassidy must once again walk the plank - this time for her life.
