Fiction. Suspense. Thriller. HTML:

In the tradition of Daphne du Maurier, Shari Lapena, and Michelle Richmond comes a new thriller from the bestselling author of The Lake of Dead Languages??a twisty, harrowing story set at a prestigious prep school in which one woman's carefully hidden past might destroy her future.

Tess has worked hard to keep her past buried, where it belongs. Now she's the wife to a respected professor at an elite boarding school, where she also teaches. Her seventeen-year-old son, Rudy, whose dark moods and complicated behavior she's long worried about, seems to be thriving: he has a lead role in the school play and a smart and ambitious girlfriend. Tess tries not to think about the mistakes she made eighteen years ago, and mostly, she succeeds.

And then one more morning she gets a text at 2:50 AM: it's Rudy, asking for help. When Tess picks him up she finds him drenched and shivering, with a dark stain on his sweatshirt. Four hours later, Tess gets a phone call from the Haywood school headmistress: Lila Zeller, Rudy's girlfriend, has been found dead on the beach, not far from where Tess found Rudy just hours before.

As the investigation into Lila's death escalates, Tess finds her family attacked on all sides. What first seemed like a tragic accidental death is turning into something far more sinister, and not only is Tess's son a suspect but her husband is a person of interest too. But Lila's death isn't the first blemish on Haywood's record, and the more Tess learns about Haywood's fabled history, the more she realizes that not all skeletons will stay safely locked in the closet.… (més)

"We make our allegories by choosing what part of the story to remember."

The Sea of Lost Girls
by Carol Goodman

It looks like many of my GR friends enjoyed this one more than myself. I will say something that may seem odd, given I did not rate it all that high. I ADORED the writing. It is descriptive and really beautiful. The Sea of Lost Girls takes place in Maine and, man does she nail the atmosphere. I will look for other works by this writer.

But this story just lost me. Tess gets a call in the middle of the night from her son. He is in a sort of crazed state and asks her to pick him up. Tess, whose son, it turns out, has been having behavioral issues, has always put him before anyone including her husband, her friends and her life. So she goes. And does not really question him about what has happened.

The next day it is announced that Lila, his girlfriend, has ben found dead. She appears to have fallen (or been pushed) off the cliffs above the ocean.

I have read stories like this before and sometimes I enjoy then and sometimes I do not. What made it hard with this one is that by the time I'd read 20 percent of the book, it had already filled up with so many characters, that I was completely confused and could not remember who was who. It was so fast. I guess in a way that is good because that means lots of suspects but I did not feel I got to know to many of the characters and so many in such a short time left me a little bleary eyed.

There is so much more to the book like ancient witchcraft and folklore and missing girls but honestly it was so much so quickly that it sort of felt like five books in one.And besides all that, Tess has a past and it is a pretty murky one so we are constantly going back to her past as well.

It felt way more Gothic than mystery or domestic Noir or YA but out of all those Genres, Gothic is the one I am most picky about.

I really liked the writing as I said and the Historical Allegories which is why I chose the quote I did. I also like the main plot. But the energy for me was off. Just to many people cramming the book, to many plots running together and to much going on at the same time.

SPOILERS:

The ending was such a let down is so many ways. Two almost deaths at sea for Tess, another person confesses to something they never did and dies for nothing and then Tess decides she can never be happy so why try. I wanted less characters and more story with the four main characters, including Luther. I just wasn't a major fan of this one. ( )

Marvelous. Mysteries layered on mysteries that you wont be able to put down ( )

This would have been given 5 stars. However this mom went to all stops to get her kid out of trouble. Protect him from real life. And just plain put her hand up his arse and control him like a puppet. Reminded me to much of the millennial. Sometimes a kid has got to fall on their butts to get back up on there own ( )
