About The Book:
It’s summer and holidaymakers are flocking to the idyllic Brittany coast. But when first an old traveller woman dies in suspicious circumstances, and then a campaign of hate seemingly drives another victim to take his own life, events take a very dark turn. Mila Shepherd has come to France to look after her niece, Ani, following the accident in which both Ani’s parents were lost at sea. Mila has moved into their family holiday home - The Sea House - as well as taken her sister Sophie’s place in an agency which specialises in tracking down missing people, until new recruit Carter Jackson starts. It’s clear that malevolent forces are at work in Morranez, but the local police are choosing to look the other way. Only Mila and Carter can uncover the truth about what’s really going on in this beautiful, but mysterious place before anyone else suffers. But someone is desperate to protect a terrible truth, at any cost.

My Review:
This is my sixth book by this author and they have all been four or five-star reads. My first book by Ms. Douglas, In Her Shadow, was read about eighteen months ago so it is saying something when I have read five other books by the same author in that timeframe. But I have to be honest, it was The Room in the Attic and The Secret by the Lake that made me a true fangirl. I have to say that this book is one of the best books I have read so far this summer. It is not a cliché book that is all happy-go-lucky, which makes it even more believable. The storyline is realistic in that I found myself wanting to go visit France and the Brittany coast myself, I wanted to meet and visit with Mila and Ani. This book has it all and the best part about it is that it is so close to real life you don't feel like you've been brought into a fairy tale with events that don't happen in real life, this can happen to anyone, which hits home even harder. The story itself is touching; a very beautiful story articulated by the main female characters. The plot is well developed and there really aren't dull moments in the book, it's a true page-turner. As with all of Ms. Douglas's books I am going to buy it in paperback as the covers are simply gorgeous. A fantastic little story, that keeps you hooked from the start. I just couldn't put it down. All. The. Stars.

Many thanks to NetGalley, Louise Douglas, and Boldwood Books for the giving of the ARC.
