Description

'An eerie and atmospheric mystery that kept me guessing from start to finish' Allie Reynolds, author of Shiver

One year ago, Leah's twenty-one-year-old niece, Amy, mysteriously drowned near her family-owned luxury resort on the shores of Lake Garda.

Now, returning to Italy for the first time since Amy's death, Leah is shocked to find her family seem to have erased all reminders of Amy. Despite the murky circumstances, they insist her death was an accident but Leah knows she must look deeper if she is to uncover the truth.

Meanwhile, in Derby, university counsellor Joanna is recovering from a surprising break-up when she is swept off her feet by a handsome bartender. But after she invites him into her home, Joanna is forced to accept that she doesn't know him as well as she thought.

What follows is a propulsive game of cat-and mouse as both women begin to realise that appearances can be deceptive - and that the darkest secrets often lie closest to home.

Nine months ago, Leah's twenty-one-year-old niece, Amy, mysteriously drowned near her family-owned luxury resort on the shores of Lake Garda. Now, Leah is returning to Italy for the first time since Amy's death. But what she finds upon her arrival shocks her: her sister, brother-in-law, and surviving niece, Olivia, seem to have erased all reminders of Amy, and insist her death was an accidental drowning, despite murky circumstances. Leah knows she must look beyond the resort's beautiful façade if she is to uncover the truth of that night. The plot is perfectly paced, holds your interest, and keeps you guessing. It’s a page turner, for sure!

A great mystery focusing on the drowning of the protagonist’s sister and it’s confusing aftermath with parallel storylines that come to a deeply satisfying conclusion.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book - it told the story of two women who don't know each other but who by the end of the book are linked together the death of Amy, Leah's niece
Amy died by drowning in Lake Garda, Leah visits her sister on their resort in Italy where Amy lived with her mam Charlotte, Gordon Amy's dad and Olivia her sister. Leah wants to visit her sister Charlotte and the family as she feels like she hasn't been there for them much since Amys death. Its clear however that things are not right as soon as Leah arrives and it seems that nobody wants to talk about Amy and much less her death. As Leah starts to make her onw enquiries she is sent a threatening note to leave well alone...
Joanne is in Derby, England and by chance comes across Nate, a friendly barman in her local pub. He is involved in a hit and run and gives the hospital Joanna's contact details as his emergency contact. Joanna feels obliged to take him in while he recuperates but did he come by Joanna by chance or is there more to his whole story...
The book goes from Joanna to Leah story and is riveting - for me this is a must read.
