Book Description:

I can’t remember anything. Not even my own name.’

When Mia James is washed up on a beautiful, sun-drenched beach she has no idea who she is or what happened to her. She doesn’t even recognise her own face – until a man comes forward claiming to be her boyfriend and providing her with an identity.

As Mia tries to adjust to the perfect life she was living before her accident, she quickly realises that something is wrong. Why is everyone around her lying to her? What don’t they want her to remember?

From the top ten bestselling author of The Secret Mother and The Perfect Family, this completely addictive psychological thriller will have you racing through the pages until the final jaw-dropping twist. If you loved Gone Girl, The Girl on the Train and The Wife Between Us this book is for you.

My Thoughts:

This is an author who for me, can do no wrong. I absolutely, blooming well lover her books!

Imagine waking up and not remembering anything about who you are or your past? I could only imagine and even then, I had no doubts about how lonely and scary it would be. I didn’t envy what had happened to Mia one bit. But then we don’t actually know why it’s happened which of course had my senses on high alert.

Well the author had me second guessing every character that appears in the story. Were they friend or foe and what were their intentions. I feel bad for thinking so poorly about them all but I knew I had to be right that one of them had something to hide, I just didn’t know which one. As the story progresses I was even more reluctant to put the book down to get on with every day life as I had to know. Everything!

The Girl From The Sea is a dark and twisted, breath taking read. Loved it, loved it, loved it! Shalini Boland is without a doubt the queen of page turning novels. She never fails to take me by surprise and always has something up her sleeve to send me reeling. I always feel on such a high with her books through the adrenaline that is coursing through me when reading them. Brilliant!

My thanks to Bookouture and NetGalley for an advanced readers copy of this book. All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.

The Girl From the Sea is available to purchase from Amazon. (Please note that link used is an affiliate link).

  1. Sounds good Sarah, but I think that I’ll have to wait a while before reading it. The amnesia trope has been used in two of my most recent reads, the most recent being “Between the lies” by Michelle Adams. I’m not sure I’d enjoy another one so soon. Perhaps I could read another of this author’s books.

  2. I didn’t realize that this one had been re-released by Bookouture. I listened to it a while ago and really enjoyed it. It was actually the first book by Shalini Boland that I read/listened to. Great review Sarah.
