A year later, Heather knows she’s just lucky to be alive. And now, people are asking for answers, or else she will be the one to take the blame.
A chilling psychological thriller from unflinching and award-winning writer Claire McFall.”
This book was such a surprise!
We follow a group of characters on their way to a camping trip on the beach, and right away things start turning for the worse..
This is a book that genre-hops so gracefully that you don’t see it coming! From a contemporary setting to a psychological thriller and even through a moderately-chilling horror show. I could not put this down as soon as I read the mind-boggling first chapter. It sucked me in and the ending dug it’s teeth in harder than I could’ve imagined!
I gave this one 5 out of 5 stars. I definitely recommend ignoring the synopses because this is a book that you NEED to go into blind! Every twist and turn will drag you through the sand until the gut-wrenching end! (which, even to this day, still shocks me!) A definite re-read!!
