I loved reading about Morecambe Bay and enjoyed the contrast of the vibrant holiday town from the past versus the now dilapidated and neglected holiday camp that is ripe for redevelopment today.
Will and Charlotte were a bit of a complex couple, seems to me they need to communicate better! It was a little bittersweet to read of them as a young couple and then see how much they’d lost each other along the way.
Lots of great characters throughout this book with a nice amount of attention paid to some of the non key characters too which I always think is a nice touch.
This is pretty much a mystery book and I was excited to learn that it is the first in a series – we desperately need some new crime thriller dramas on TV, could this be the next big thing?
Synopsis: A return to the past. Two guilty secrets. A memory that won’t stay buried…
When Charlotte and Will Grayson return to the seaside resort where they met as teenagers, they hope it’ll help to heal the wounds in their marriage.
But visiting the dilapidated holiday camp where their relationship began brings terrible memories back from the past.
The man who’d once made their lives hell has come back to find them – only, the last time they saw him, they’d left him for dead on the beach.
As the threats to their new life become more severe, Charlotte and Will discover that they were mistaken about what happened to Bruce Craven on that fateful night.
And now he’s returned to finish off what was started thirty years ago.
Sometimes the past is best left alone…
