Day One on the island… Seven strangers journey to Fiji for the holiday of a lifetime. But the unthinkable happens – the plane crashing on a remote island, miles from home, miles from safety.
Day Thirteen on the island… Thrown together in the wreckage of paradise, the list of survivors diminishes. Names of the lost carved into the bark of a tree, one by one.
Day Thirty-three on the island… And with each passing day, with each score on the tree, the tension mounts in the group. Because when it becomes paradise lost, strangers are capable of anything…
IT WAS THE PERFECT MURDER.
I love a Lucy Clarke book and this has to be my absolute favourite one of her books so far, they way Lucy writes the end of a chapter leaves you hanging, so you feel as though you just have to keep reading on within a couple of hours I had finished the book. I found it tense and unsettling and I didn’t know who to trust. I imagined all sorts of things happening, but what does happen will shock you to the core. There are plenty of twists and turns that make for a truly gripping read, one that you will not want to put down until the very end.
I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.
Nothing has felt right since Elle rented out her house . . .
I’M IN YOUR HOUSE
There’s a new coldness. A shift in the atmosphere. The prickling feeling that someone is watching her every move from the shadows.
I’M IN YOUR HEAD
Maybe it’s all in Elle’s mind? She’s a writer – her imagination, after all, is her strength. And yet every threat seems personal. As if someone has discovered the secrets that keep her awake at night.
AND NOW I KNOW YOUR SECRET
As fear and paranoia close in, Elle’s own home becomes a prison. Someone is unlocking her past – and she’s given them the key…
This is a cleverly written story that comes together with twist after twist. I thought I knew how the ending would pan out in the middle of this book but when I got to the end I was completely and utterly shocked by the ending. I loved how the writing flows so easily and you get swept up into the book.
Seven years ago, two boys went missing at sea – and only one was brought to shore. The Sandbank, a remote stretch of coast dotted with beach huts, was scarred forever.
Sarah’s son survived, but on the anniversary of the accident, he disappears without trace. As new secrets begin to surface, The Sandbank hums with tension and unanswered questions. Sarah’s search grows more desperate and she starts to mistrust everyone she knows – and she’s right to.
Someone saw everything on that fateful day seven years ago. And they’ll do anything to keep the truth buried.
I have loved Lucy’s previous novels and couldn’t wait to get started on this one. I love the fact that Lucy’s books are always based around the beach or the sea. I know she writes from a beach hut and when I am reading one of her books I can imagine her writing in her beach hut. It is a lovely feeling. This story gripped me from the first chapter, there are lots of twists and turns and I felt like I stopped breathing a few times as I didn’t see what was going to happen. Superbly written.
Thank you Harper Collins for sending me an advanced copy for an honest review.

They had found paradise.
What would they do to keep it?
With a quick spin of the globe, Kitty and Lana
escape their grey reality and journey to the Philippines.
There they discover The Blue – a beautiful yacht,
with a wandering crew.
They spend day after languorous day exploring the pristine
white beaches and swimming beneath the stars, and Lana
drifts further away from the long-buried secrets of home.
But the tide turns when death creeps quietly on deck.
A dangerous swell of mistrust and lies threatens to bring
the crew’s adventures to an end – but some won’t
let paradise go…whatever the price.
Thank you to Lucy’s publicist for sending me this book, it was very much appreciated. After reading Lucy’s previous novels called The Sea Sisters and A Single Breath I knew I was going to love this book just as much and I really did. I thought this was a brilliant read definitely one of my favourite of this years, it was a thriller with a good amount of suspense. I genuinely didn’t know how the story would pan out, there are a few twists and turns that I didn’t see coming and the end was immense. I loved reading about living on a yacht, this part fascinated me and how difficult it is so I now know it is something I would not like to do but I don’t mind reading about it. It is fabulously written too.
