The Blurb –
A return to the past. Two guilty secrets. A memory that won’t
stay buried …
When Charlotte and Will Grayson return to the seaside resort where they met as teenagers, they hope it’ll help to heal the wounds in their marriage.
But visiting the dilapidated holiday camp where their relationship began brings terrible memories back from the past.
The man who’d once made their lives hell has come back to find them – only, the last time they saw him, they’d left him for dead on the beach.
As the threats to their new life become more severe, Charlotte and Will discover that they were mistaken about what happened to Bruce Craven on that fateful night.
And now he’s returned to finish off what was started thirty years ago.
Sometimes the past is best left alone
Left for Dead is the first book in the Morecambe Bay Trilogy.
Book 2 is Circle of Lies and will be published on Monday 9th December 2019.
Book 3 is Truth Will Out and will be published on Monday 6th January 2020.
My thoughts – I’m so pleased I read this book. For the last two years I have travelled to Morecambe for the Morecambe and Vice Crime Writing Festival. Although I don’t know the town well, it is always enjoyable to read a book and think ‘Ooh I know where that is.’
The story follows husband and wife Charlotte and Will as they move their family to Morecambe to start a new business. They are both familiar with the town having both been there in their teens.
However Charlotte has a secret from that time that she has never shared ,but someone in Morecambe knows and messages her as soon as she arrives. Charlotte soon learns you can never bury the past.
An excellent read and I can’t wait to read the next one.
