Summary

The scorching, escapist new thriller from the Sunday Times bestselling author of The Castaways

WE WERE DYING FOR A HOLIDAY

The six of us arrived on that beautiful Greek island dreaming of sun-drenched beaches and blood orange sunsets, ready to lose ourselves in the wild freedom of a weekend away with friends.

On the first night we swam under a blanket of stars.

On the second night the games began on our clifftop terrace.

On the third night the idyll cracked, secrets and lies whispering on the breeze.

And by the final night there was a body on the rocks below . . .

WHO WOULD KILL FOR IT?

Critic reviews

"Lucy Clarke goes from strength to strength; this utterly addictive trouble-in-paradise novel is her best yet. The plot shifts like sand beneath the reader’s feet." (Erin Kelly)

"I’m breathless; I raced through the last third hardly coming up for air. Talk about twists and turns.... This is going to blow everyone’s socks off!" (Emma Stonex)

"I loved One of the Girls: beautiful writing, suffused with menace, complicated female heroines and an ending I couldn’t predict." (Gillian Mcallister)

Not as good as I had hoped, given the setting

I had high hopes for this, I loved Lucky Clarke's Big Blue (now ret-itiled I think) and find most of her books entertaining though I think I did return one or two along the way as weaker than the rest.
I love destination thrillers especially with sand, sea and luxury locations. I adore the Greek Islands so I thought this would be a winner - and yes I did finish it though I missed a chunk and could not be bothered to go back to find out what I missed which speaks volumes really.
I thought it was well written, did not really make enough of the setting in my opinion, but it was the people I found really wanting.
Lexie was likeable but not really enough to get your teeth into and seemed there for window dressing with an unlikely family backstory.
The rest of them seemed very dull apart from Bella who was a strange mash of of personalities and it just did not seem to ring true as she was asked to perform too many roles.
I also caught a whiff of a politically correct formula being introduced with Ana from Brixton and an all girl couple trying to tick all the boxes and all feeling rather forced.
My main issue however is with the idea that a house which has been on the market for so long and has a history of danger was not brough up to spec with the simplest of compliance to health and safety regulations let alone common sense.
So yes I listened, yes it well tidily written without gaping plot holes, I don't wish I had never read it just all was rather insipid and feel I could have been reading a murder mystery thriller which really knocked my socks off and had me longing to find out what happened next.
To tell you the truth it was a fairly dull Hen break with uninspiring people and that was the real problem - had you been there or read the account it was all a bit lacklustre.
It was a nice idea, an exciting location but characters, lack of capturing the magic of Greece and the scattered and inconsequential plot twists and backstories had me yawning and thinking "So what?"
In fact it could have made a quite good short story, just not enough meat on the bones or pizazz to make a good thriller.
PS .... just started SUN DAMAGE by Sabine Durrant - OMG first five minutes a million times more thrilling than this entire book, also location thriller - seems amazing and am intrigued, excited and captivated after first 15 minutes. beautiful narration - wow - can't wait to get back to it!

Big Little Lies?

Not sure which book was written (plagiarised) first, but the plot is almost identical!

Stick With It!

I tried to get into this book 3 times before I got to grips with all the characters, who was who, how were they connected etc but I'm glad I persevered because the story is good and had some great plot twists.

I love Lucy Clarke however…

I’m sorry to be writing this review as I love Lucy’s style of writing but this story took absolutely ages to really start. Far far too much description that went on and on. Too many characters- I couldn’t differentiate between the girls in the end. I think we got to chapter 50 before anything actually happened- just the back story to why they were all there in Greece. It needed to be sped up - losing the details (which I usually love) and it needed a hook - which lacked as well. Sorry Lucy.

Good story (eventually)

I eventually got into this story, there was too much happening, I had re-listen, I did get there and I really enjoyed it - so hang in there.

One of the Girls

I had wanted something easy to listen to and this fit the bill.
I don't think it's going to win any awards but it's not the worst either.
My main issue with it is that there is just too much going on. Too many ties and coincidences that my suspension of disbelief was stretched so thin it was at risk of snapping.

Loved this

Wonderful performance, I really enjoyed it, fast paced, a little protracted at the end though
