Publisher Description

'Haunting, atmospheric and gripping' John Connolly, New York Times best-selling author

'A beguiling heroine - clever, sympathetic and bearing a weight of guilt' The Times

Accident or murder? A perfect day hides the perfect crime . . .

Summer has arrived in Inishowen and solicitor Ben O'Keeffe is greatly tempted by a job offer she's received from a law firm in America.

Yet before making any life-changing decisions there is her friend Leah's wedding to attend at the newly restored Greysbridge Hotel, with its private beach and beautiful pier. It's the perfect location, everyone agrees, but the festivities are brutally cut short when a young American, a visitor also staying at the hotel, drowns in full view of the wedding guests.

And when a second death is discovered the same evening, Ben finds herself embroiled in a real country house murder mystery, where all the guests are suspects . . .

Loved it

I do like this series. They’re well written and easy to read with good plots. There’s nothing too gruesome and graphic which I think ruins some books. For me this was definitely a ‘just one more chapter’ type of book.

I know this book a murder story!! but I found myself comparing the feel good experience I got reading it to the satisfaction I used to feel reading the Famous Five adventures as a child. That probably sounds weird but there was a cosy feeling mixed with the anticipation of what was to come.
