Welcome to The Starlings… sun, sea and neighbours to die for.
Security, a sparkling sea view and the best kind of neighbours – The Starlings gated community has it all. Here, doors are left open, children run free, and at the heart of it all is the entrepreneurial Gold Family, who first dreamed up this aspirational vision of ‘Dorset’s Safest Community’. To the outside world the popular family appears glitteringly blessed… until an idyllic party takes a dark turn and one of their number is found slumped at the foot of the clocktower. Who knows what really happened? And what answers are harboured within the old building, the former Highcap Mother and Baby Home?’
Being a new author to me, I was not sure what to expect with this book. I thought the plot had that level of intrigue and intensity that made me want to drop everything and start reading straight away. Each chapter is a different person so you get many people’s perspective on the current situation which I liked. I felt that the beginning took it’s time to build up but that gave it a really good level of tension. It is a very dark thriller that will wrap around you and won’t let you leave until the very last page. It was a good thriller and I want to read more of this author’s books now.
I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.
