About the Book:
One summer. One stranger. One killer…Two bad things happened that summer: A stranger arrived. And the first girl disappeared. In the wake of the crime that rocked her community, Felicity fled, knowing more than she let on. But sixteen years later, her new life is shattered by the news that a second girl has gone missing in her hometown. Now Felicity must go back, to face the truth about what happened all those years ago. Only she holds the answers – and they’re more shocking than anyone could imagine. The heatwave is back. And so is the killer.

I requested this book because I heard a lot of good things about the author...BUT...This book was very repetitive and the writing was so pedestrian. The same thoughts and words were regurgitated over and over to the point of boredom. I really tried to like this book, I read the whole thing, willing to give it a chance, but it was just not for me. The characters were underdeveloped, unlikable and I could not relate to what little was there. Cliche to the point of being insulting, much like the flat title. I understand this author is widely acclaimed and I am sure she is worthy of the acclamation, but this is obviously not her best work.

Thank you NetGalley, Avon Books UK and Katerina Diamond for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an impartial review; all opinions are my own.
