I LOVE when authors write in different genres. I loved this book. I read it over a few days and it was fantastic. The writing is exactly what you would expect and you are hooked from the start.
This ia a thriller. So if you go in knowing that you will be prepared while you read. Unlike me. I wasn't prepared and kept having to go back to things I missed. This thriller as fantastic. It had the romance and it had the suspense. I was on the edge of my seat form the very start.
I am one of those reads that thinks I can figure it all you and I swear I was wrong more than I was right with this book. I love that fact. I am super competitive and this had me twitching every time I was wrong.
I loved it overall and will continue o read her from this genre because, winning. She is top shelf writing y'all.
New York Times bestselling author Nalini Singh pivots in a new direction with her first mainstream thriller that will be sure to keep readers on their toes.
Anahera Rawiri left New Zealand at twenty-one, fleeing small-town poverty and the ghosts of her childhood with no plans to look back. But eight years later, she returns, seeking familiarity as respite from the shattered remains of her new life. And despite the changes brought on by a bump in tourism--the shiny new welcome sign at the town line and a decidedly less shiny new police presence--Golden Cove appears much as it ever was: a small settlement on the savage West Coast of the South Island, populated by all the remembered faces and set against a backdrop of lush greenery, jagged cliffs, and crashing waves.
Detective Will Gallagher knows all about ghosts; his own chased him out of a promising career in Christchurch, landing him as the sole cop in a quaint town where his most pressing concerns are petty theft and the occasional drunk. When Golden Cove resident Miri Hinewai goes out for a run and fails to return, Will finds himself heading up a missing person's search that rapidly escalates into an official investigation after this case is connected with similar ones from the past. As an outsider, Will begins to rely on Anahera's knowledge of the area and its residents to help him delve into Golden Cove's secrets, and to determine whether it shelters something far more dangerous than just an unforgiving landscape.
