They told us he had been missing for nearly two days, that he probably drowned. They told us a lie.
Megan was ten years old when her older brother, Zac, went missing among the cliffs, caves and beaches that surround the small seaside town of Whitecliff.
A decade later and a car crash has claimed the lives of her parents.
Megan and her younger sister Chloe return to Whitecliff one summer for the first time since their brother’s disappearance. Megan says it’s to get her parents’ affairs in order. There are boxes to pack, junk to clear, a rundown cottage to sell. But that’s not the real reason.
Megan has come to confront her family’s past after receiving a postcard on the day of her parents’ funeral. It had a photograph of Whitecliff on the front and a single letter on the back.
‘Z’ is all it read.
Z for Zac.
I buddy read this book with Payton @ Payton’s Book Thoughts at the end of July. As y’all know by now me and Payton buddy read at least one book with each other every month. If you aren’t already following her you really should go do that right now. She is kind of in an all things books slump so head over to her blog and give her some suggestions on books she can read to help her out of her slump. Whenever she posts her review I will link to it here.
First off thanks to Bookouture and NetGalley for providing me with an eARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
It has been a couple weeks since I finished this book so I am trying to recall all of the feelings I had about it.
For me the pace of this book was extremely slow. There was a couple of scenes that had my heart racing but other than that the build up to the reveal was slow.
Speaking of the build up I thought the build up to the reveal was really well done. I was on the edge of my seat trying to figure out what was going on in this creepy little village. I had some suspects in mind which turned out to be right on point but there was some other people I never suspected. The reveal itself was lackluster to me. To me it had this huge build up to a reveal that just didn’t add up to me. The build up was more extreme than it needed to be for the actual reveal.
There is kind of two side stories that has to do with Megan that I feel could have been explored more. They were both glossed over in my opinion and could have definitely been explored more. I know I am being really vague but I don’t want to spoil anything.
While I had several issues with this book I really enjoyed it. I was completely sucked into the story that I never wanted to put it down.
Have you read this book? What did you think of it? I would love to talk more about it in the comments below just try to keep it spoiler free for those who haven’t yet read it.
