For fans of Gone Girl and The Girl on the Train 

A chilling suspense story of wounded hearts and dark secrets.

Washed up on the beach, she can’t remember who she is. She can’t even remember her name. Turns out, she has an idyllic life – friends and family eager to fill in the blanks.

But why are they lying to her? What don’t they want her to remember?

When you don’t even know who you are, how do you know who to trust



The Girl from the Sea is a psychological thriller that grabs your attention from the beginning and keeps you guessing throughout the book.

I really enjoyed this book; it was a sinister story with twists in the right places to ensure you never really knew who to trust.

The characters were likeable enough, but the ending got me! It had a great plot twist that I honestly did not see coming!
This book is a must read for fans of thrillers!!

Thank you to Publisher, Adrenalin Books, and NetGalley for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for my honest review.



I really enjoyed the storyline, it was dark and sinister and you never really knew who to trust!

Also, that ending!! I honestly didn’t see it coming. I thought it was a great plot twist and can see how it can be compared to Gone Girl


While the characters were all likeable enough, they all seemed to lack depth. I just couldn’t really connect with them. The MC is at best an entitled bitch! I understand that it would be horrible to have a head injury and not remember your life, but suck it up princess!

Overall it was a fun and enjoyable read that kept me on the edge of my seat.

Now I combine motherhood with writing fiction. I write the kinds of books I love to read – gripping adventures with a spattering of supernatural and a sprinkling of romance.”

  1. Why are all the girls lately suspended in water or floating? Have you noticed that? And I’m starting to wonder if it’s the same chick over and over again in a perpetual state of floating, lol!!
    Let the damn girls act like they’re drowning instead…much more believable. Lol. Or floating on the surface face down? 😵
    Great review btw!! 👍

    1. Haha yeah there are a lot of books with girls just floating, I don’t think a drowning girl would make a pretty cover. I think floating face down on the surface could work. haha
      Also, why are they all losing their damn memories!!!!

      Thank you 🙂 🙂

  2. I really wanted to check this one out and I probably still will eventually, but I hate it when the characters seem to lack depth – and when the MC is obnoxious. The only time I’ve thought it really worked was in Before I Fall and I still hated her for over half the book. Anyway, I like how you set up your reviews! Great post. 🙂

    1. It is a great read. I really enjoyed it. But I did want to slap the MC most of the time lol 😂
      I think the characters lacking depth is because you don’t actually get to know them so there’s no connection.
      I was still on the edge of my seat wanting to know what had happened though 😂😂

      Thank you, I wasn’t too happy with my reviews so I thought I would try something a bit different. I’m glad it’s worked out okay 😊❤️
