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.

For the last thirty years, Angela Gillespie’s annual Christmas letter has been full of her family’s triumphs. But this year Angela surprises everyone, including herself – she tells the truth.
Angela’s husband is in the throes of a mid-life crisis. Her grown-up daughters are more out of control than ever. And her youngest child spends all of his time talking to an imaginary friend.
With fantasy thoughts of a life before marriage and motherhood becoming more than just an innocent daydream, Angela’s real life is slowly slipping out of focus.
But, as the repercussions of her ruthlessly honest letter begin to pile up, a shocking event takes Angela from her family, and she realises she should have been more careful of what she wished for. . .
I really enjoyed reading this book. I loved the plot and the fact that I could relate to the characters and that they seem a fairly normal family. I think the problems that this family had are mostly what normal families can go through. I loved all the characters in this book especially Joan as she seemed an absolute star. Don’t be put of if you read the blurb and it says about a Christmas Letter as it isn’t really a Christmas book. I found this book to be heart warming but emotional, I did laugh out loud at parts. It made me think about what I have to come when I have kids. This book will definitely leave you feeling happy. I am going to be looking out for more of Monica’s books now.
A whirlwind romance. A perfect marriage.Hannah Reilly has seized her chance at happiness. Until the day her husband fails to come home . . .
And can you ever really know what happened before you met?
After hearing about Lucie Whitehouse books from a friend I decided to take the chance and give one of her books a go. I have to say I thought this book was going to be predictable but I kind of knew after reading more that there was more to this story than meets the eye. It is a fast paced book that is not too long, which I found made it a easy read. Will probably read another one by Lucie Whitehouse just to see what she can bring to another story.
