My Review

When Steph Durham, a travel journalist, gets a chance to review a luxury resort in the Lake District, she finds herself involved in the death of Elizabeth Sinclair who was found dead in the lake at the resort some two years before.  The police closed the case back then saying it was a tragic accident, but Steph is given information which may show that Elizabeth was murdered….

I’ve read a few of this author’s books before and have really enjoyed them.  I was not disappointed with this one!  Switching between present day and the run up to Elizabeth’s death, the story had me hooked right from the beginning.  I loved Steph’s character and thought she was really tenacious and not willing to give up on anything too easily.  I didn’t feel as much empathy for Elizabeth’s character as what I thought I should have done and it was obvious that her story was always going to cast a mysterious shadow over the story.  All of the characters seemed to have something to hide and it was very difficult to find anyone who you could really trust!  I think I suspected almost every character at some point over the course of the book!

As usual in my deductions of what happened, I was completely wrong and fell for every red herring and dead end that was thrown at me.  The story was very cleverly written and I found myself furiously turning the pages to find out what was happening.  The characters work really well in the storyline and there was lots of suspense and mystery to keep you wondering where it was going.  The ending was great and whilst unexpected, really tied everything up perfectly!  A fantastic thriller of a book – would definitely recommend!
