Her family's cottage on the New Jersey shore was a place of freedom and innocence for Julie Bauer, until her seventeen-year-old sister, Isabel, was murdered. It's been more than forty years since that August night, but Julie's memories of her sister's death still shape her world. Now someone from her past is raising questions about what really happened that night. About Julie's own complicity. About a devastating secret her mother kept from them all. About the person who went to prison for Izzy's murder, and the person who didn't. Faced with questions and armed with few answers, Julie must gather the courage to revisit her past and untangle the complex emotions that led to one unspeakable act of violence on the bay at midnight.… (més)

This was a really compelling read!
Julia has lived with her sister's death for over forty years & her momories of it still shape her world. Now however, someone from her past has come back, & they're asking questions about what really happened on that night. Now Julia needs to find the courage to face the past to untangle the lies & reveal the truth.
This story peaked my curiosity from the get go. Diana Chamberlain tells a good story & uses vivid descriptions throughout the book. Her characters were well rounded & she uses language that's easy to understand as well.
The thing I liked most about this story are the fact that we got the story from everyone's perspective. I loved Julia as a child too, she had a lot of pluck!
I'll be looking out for Diana Chamberlain's name in the book section in the op shops after this read.

Girlfriends, this is Diane Chamberlain at her finest. A page turner with a good plot and twists at the end. A perfect summer/beach read! ( )

I really enjoyed this book. The characters were interesting and the story really held my attention. It was incredibly sad at times. I did like the way the author tied up loose ends and the family got the closure they needed in the ending. ( )

The Bay at Midnight was extraordinary, as each of Diane Chamberlain’s books are unique and different. A complex story of three generations of women, hidden family secrets, death, love, relationships, romance, and mystery. I enjoyed the lake cottage bungalow setting and appreciated the era, as I was born in the 50’s and in my teens in the 60’s -- reminiscent of past summer family vacations, teenage rebellion, segregation, young and forbidden love, and all the other fun things. Making you want to return to simpler times when we were 12 and 13 yrs old. (It is always funny to hear of hidden secrets even in generations of the 30s and 40s as were capable of the same mistakes; however, kept them very taboo, due to the times.)

Loved the writing of first person, the teenage loves of next door lake neighbors for both generations, the relation between mother and daughters, sisters, and how Diane portrays them so eloquently, with her past expertise in social work as well as being a talented author – making for a five star novel! Pulled another 3am to finish!
1962 was the year at the Jersey Shores for the setting of the main story which involved 3 sisters (daughters), mother and father, and grandparents at their summer bungalow and another family next door with two sons and a dad with a past connection to the mother. This was the setting for a night of horror with a murder of the oldest sister, cover ups, guilt, and the wrong person dying in prison and not until years later did the mystery start to unravel which changed the lives of all involved.

Combine this with current day events of Julie’s struggle with her pregnant daughter, the strained relationship between Julie and her mother Maria, secrets of years past, and the reentering of her past next door neighbor and a new budding friendship and romance. Faced with questions, and guilt it is now time for courage as all these families have to revisit their past and gather courage to face the complex emotions which led to the one unexplained night at midnight on the bay. Looking forward to her new books for 2013 “The First Lie” (June) and “Necessary Lies” (Sept)!
