Creepy and Delicious

I really enjoyed this book. I thought the author did a great job letting the story unfold at a good pace that builds tension, and the main character was well-drawn. I liked the author's portrayal of her memory loss, it was realistic and interesting. There were some genuinely scary moments- i don't mind saying that i wouldn't listen with the lights off! Awesome twisty ending that I didn't see coming. Highly recommend- great narration too!

Stunning impeccable writing to its core!

What did you love best about The Girl from the Sea?

The Mystery/Suspense/Thriller that "The Girl from the Sea" throws at you is truly phenomenal. The novel opens with the girl on shore half drowned and unable to remember anything, even her own name. The various people who come forward to claim her have unusual stories of how her life really is. How will she know who she really is? What's true? What's not true? Who can she trust? She's thrown in one suspenseful thriller after another. It will keep you on your toes making you beg for more! Can anyone stand up to more extensive scrutiny then she endures? Shalini Boland draws her characters to new heights and adventure that is yet again both fascinating and intriguing to say the least. I usually don't read psychological thriller, suspense books but, this book pulled me into every twist and plot making my soul yearn for more. I will definitely read and suggest you should read anything this lady writes. It's a true talent. starts making some changes that surprise people from that life. But there’s where the similarity ends. There is a dark, foreboding menace hanging over Boland’s book that is completely absent from Moriarty’s. Different takes, both engaging.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

The plot and twist just seem to come from no where with turns you'd never suspect. You will not be disappointed at all! If you like the intrigue of different and unreliability the author throws you then you'll love this. Often so many books seem to become and you can actually figure out what's going to happen. This is a problem with avid readers over time and you get sort of in a reading rut. This book gives you that freshness you need. Way to go Shalini!

What does Gemma Dawson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Yes, I actually thought the book was so fantastic it's hard to compare because the writing skills were epic but Gemma was great. I do think that it could be little more heart felt but, it still gave you the chill factor and adrenaline pumping you are always searching for. You would not be disappointed!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes! I love this book! It's so immpecable it pulls you in from the start and you can't get it out of your mind! The flow of the book draws you in and you stay glued from start to finish!

Any additional comments?

The authors skills are phenomenal you will not be disappointed! It's a must read!
