I received a copy of this book for free, and I leave my review voluntarily.
Tríona Walsh loves reading and writing crime novels but is fairly law-abiding in real life. A twice winner of the Irish Writers Centre Novel Fair competition she lives in Dublin with her four kids, three cats and one husband.
“Shall I wrap it all up now?”
Cara struggles to fit in her small island home. But this is where she lived with her husband, so she is determined to raise their children there. On the ten-year memorial of Cillians passing, the whole group is coming together. It will be their first reunion in 10 long years, and it will be a trip to die for.
This was quite the ride. I enjoyed the way isolation was used as a character. Both regarding the island and how people treated Cara. That was well done.
There were a lot of characters in this book, and I found the descriptions and development solid. This story is clever, and that is how we get to know the characters, both in the past and the present.
The last half of this book moves much faster than the first half, and the last couple of chapters are so intense that I couldn’t put the book down. The scenery descriptions made me cold most reading them!
