Today I am taking part in the books on tour and reviewing The Beach Party by Amy Sheppard, published by Bookouture.

BOOK DESCRIPTION

We were all at the party. Which of us wanted her dead?

As the smoke from the bonfire spirals into the night sky and the cool drinks slip down our throats, none of us can take our eyes off Lacey. She dances in the dunes, her long golden hair damp from her late-night swim, her smile dazzling, her blue eyes closed.

Everyone who is close to Lacey sits by the smoky fire. Her adoring boyfriend, who holds onto her, perhaps a little too tightly. Her little sister, always in Lacey’s shadow, sifting fine soft sand through her fingers, never taking her eyes off Lacey. And me. Sad and full of rage, after an argument forced the man I love to leave the party early.

When the fire burns out, we stumble away from the beach, along the cliff path – faces burned by the wind, hearts full of secrets. But Lacey never makes it home. The next morning, her body is found in the sand dunes, a heart-shaped locket missing from around her neck.

Who would have thought our beach party could end the way it did? Close friends gathered on the last night of a long hot summer – which one of us could have killed the girl everybody loved?

An absolutely gripping psychological thriller with an ending you will NEVER see coming! Strap in for a twisty rollercoaster ride that will keep you turning pages all night long. Perfect for anyone who adored The Holiday, The Guest List or Gone Girl.

“Everyone was there…Someone knows what happened to her…”

I really enjoyed this tale that kept me flicking the pages long into the night, needing to know what happened to Lacey. What I got was way more than I bargained for and could not have predicted that jaw dropping outcome. Full of suspense, hidden secrets and twists galore, The Beach Party is a must read.

Thank you to Amy Sheppard, Bookouture and NetGalley for allowing me to read an advanced copy of The Beach Party, which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily.
