The Last Girl to Die by Helen Fields – review.

Description

What if she’s not the last girl to die?

In search of a new life, sixteen-year-old Adriana Clark’s family moves to the ancient, ocean-battered Isle of Mull, far off the coast of Scotland. Then she goes missing. Faced with hostile locals and indifferent police, her desperate parents turn to private investigator Sadie Levesque.

Sadie is the best at what she does. But when she finds Adriana’s body in a cliffside cave, a seaweed crown carefully arranged on her head, she knows she’s dealing with something she’s never encountered before.

The deeper she digs into the island’s secrets, the closer danger creeps – and the more urgent her quest to find the killer grows. Because what if Adriana is not the last girl to die?

My thoughts

Huge wows! What an exciting book full of surprises. I loved the mix of legend and atmospheric island. The Isle of Mull was the perfect location for this story and Sadie was the perfect investigator. What a gutsy protagonist!

I found myself comfortably slipping into the the story from the first chapter and the characters brought everything to life. The cave gave me the heebie-jeebies and I don’t think I’ll ever look at seaweed in the same way again.

‘The Last Girl to Die’ had me instantly gripped. Hell fire – I lost sleep and bit my nails down as the tension ramped up. If you love murder mysteries and thrillers, you have to read this book. Fabulous!

Thanks for reading!
