On an island off the windswept Irish coast, guests gather for the wedding of the year – the marriage of Jules Keegan and Will Slater.
Old friends. Past grudges.
Happy families. Hidden jealousies.
Thirteen guests. One body.
The wedding cake has barely been cut when one of the guests is found dead. And as a storm unleashes its fury on the island, everyone is trapped.
All have a secret. All have a motive. One guest won’t leave this wedding alive . . .
I was intrigued to read a new author and this sounded like something I would enjoy and I certainly did, I liked the sound of the blurb, 30 somethings going to a wedding on a remote Island of course something sinister is going to happen but what and who did it? I liked the way each chapter is a different wedding guest and the bride and groom, I feel as though the reader gets a sense of actually being there. There are lots of secrets that unravel when being all together and we find out things that shocked me. The story keeps you guessing till the very end and made me gasp as the ending is quite shocking. I look forward to reading more of Lucy’s books.
I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review. Thank you Netgalley

Dead Woman’s Ditch. The site of a grisly two-hundred-year-old murder – and a recent hit and run. When a young woman’s body is found at the macabre landmark in Somerset’s Quantock Hills, DI Mike Lockyer and Sergeant Jane Bennett are called in to investigate.
They find a community gripped by fear and superstition. The locals won’t venture out at night, believing there’s a man stalking the hills; a phantom cloaked in folklore and legend, keeping the sinister legacy of Dead Woman’s Ditch alive.
Confronted by a hostile CID team and a murder victim with close ties to their own squad, Lockyer and Bennett will have to accept what they can’t see before they can find what’s really there . . .
Not having read any of Clare’s books before I was intrigued to see what her writing was like. I am starting to read a few crime thrillers so thought I would give this one a go. The cover looks mysterious and the title of the book looks creepy how it is slightly distorted. I read this book within three days and couldn’t put it down. I was captivated into the story the twists and turns made the story for me come to life, I was looking over my shoulder quite a bit. The descriptions were well written, it was certainly creepy but Clare is one to look out for in the future. A brilliantly written book.
