Goodreads:  Lucy Hall arrives in the Seychelles determined to leave her worries behind. The tropical paradise looks sun-soaked and picture-perfect—but as Lucy soon discovers, appearances can be very deceptive. A deadly secret lurks in the island’s history, buried deep but not forgotten. And it is about to come to light.

As black clouds begin to gather over what promised to be a relaxing family break, Lucy realizes that her father stands in the eye of the coming storm. A shadow from his past is threatening to destroy all that he holds dear—including the lives of his loved ones.

Kritters Thoughts:  A family of three takes a much needed vacation after the daughter suffers a serious relationship blow as her fiance is caught cheating and he doesn't think anything of his idea of an open relationship.  They return back to a country that the father worked in after college, but the past will come back to haunt them.

First, I enjoyed the intro chapter, so we know what happened in the past that would come back to impact their current day trip.  But we didn't know too much detail as to how those events would really impact the family - of course I won't spoil a thing for you, so I will have to keep this brief as this is definitely a mystery thriller that revolves around the what will happen next!

I did enjoy a mystery that took place on vacation, I know there are many out there, but this felt different because we the reader knew that the husband had a history on the island, but it was definitely distant history.

A good solid mystery from an author I have read before and will definitely read again.

Rating: definitely a good read, but can't read two in a row
