Another brilliant gripping crime thriller from Gerri Hill, couldn't put it down and read in one sitting! The characters are introduced with care so from the start you know who they are and like them and what to get to know them more. Detective Harley Shepherd annoys Lauren Voss when she arrives to check out the vandalism at her resort, her bright Hawaiian shirts particularly irksome on a Police Detective. Obviously that sets the sparks flying but soon they find themselves caught in a scary chain of events. The setting is beautiful, I always really feel like I can see and smell the settings of her books and this his no exception, the geography is clearly laid out so I can imagine the connection. I have a sense of the beauty of the place too, this really adds to my enjoyment of the book and shows her skill as a writer, I would also add the the backstory is also excellently explored and there are also fully fleshed out supporting characters which are so important, adding to the overall depth of the book. A gripping storyteller at her best.
With thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
