Lia Thomson has recently returned to the UK after having moved to the USA where she has a successful career as a doctor. Back in Norfolk, having recently inherited her grandmothers cottaage, where she was brought up, afterthe sudden and rather mysterious death of her Gran. Mysteries from both past and present begin to haunt her, memories of the death of her little brother Eddie return, even though she was only 4 when he died, disturbing nightmares of water and drowning recur and she begins to uncover sinister facets of her Grandmothers life and death.
Having lived here as a child its inevitable that she'll meet some of her former schoolfriends, she becomes reacquaintanced with her former friend Susannah and when she meets Aidan Morrell she finds him very changed from the companion of her youth, years in the army have left him battle scarred and bitter and he seeks solace in his interests of deep sea diving and painting. He's just the complication she doesn't need especially as he is engaged to the rich and successful Brett waiting for her back in the USA.
The whole book has a dark and sinister feel and is much more than just a romantic novel its a tense and quite disturbing thriller which kept me turning the pages well into the night. Highly recomended to anyone who enjoyed Ninepins or Revenge of the Tide
Great setting with a plot that seemed a bit predictable but still felt fresh.
I wasn't sure about the authenticity of the military being able to have roadblocks on public roads in the vicinity of a village, even as an exercise, or being able to execute a search warrant on private property but I accepted that may be the case in Britain. I did wonder at how police sometimes were able to deduce some events correctly without seeming to have any basis for their line of questioning, but overall it didn't detract from the story.
For people who are really adamant about not reading anything with sex or profanity, you might want to know that this does occasionally have rather coarse expletives and although the H and h do make love, the scenes are not explicit.
If allowed, I would give this book 4 1/2 stars and I rounded my rating up instead of down because this is a book that I will vividly remember for a very long time.

I really liked this one! The development of the main character was more important to me than the actual murder. Lia has everything she thinks she wants in America. Read morePublished 17 months ago by vsk
I gave up on this book shortly after starting to read it.
I disliked the gruesome beginning and it didn't pique my interest to read any further. Read more
This book was far too slow moving for me and took way too long to read. I had the entire story figured out early on and forced myself to read it just to see if I was right. Read morePublished 17 months ago by K. Manthey
There is a lot that goes on in this book: childhood trauma, murder mystery, family relationships, lost love, veterans' issues. Read morePublished 18 months ago by Ann M
Nicely written, but slow moving and melodramatic. The plot was obvious almost from the get go, because in this genre the lover could not be the villain.Published 18 months ago by Roxie's Mum
Up close starts out with a murder, observed by the killer- stalking its prey. From the prologue I was hooked. Read morePublished 22 months ago by Robyn K
If you enjoy your romance with a suspenseful mystery woven through the story this book is for you. The stark Norfolk scenery is as much a character as Lia and Aiden. Read morePublished 22 months ago by Angela S. Britnell
