“All Anna wants is to be able to sleep. But crushing insomnia, terrifying night terrors and memories of that terrible night are making it impossible. If only she didn’t feel so guilty…

To escape her past, Anna takes a job at a hotel on the remote Scottish island of Rum, but when seven guests join her, what started as a retreat from the world turns into a deadly nightmare.

Each of the guests have a secret but one of them is lying – about who they are and why they’re on the island. There’s a murderer staying in the Bay View hotel. And they’ve set their sights on Anna.

Seven strangers. Seven secrets. One deadly lie.

Someone’s going to sleep and never wake up…”

My Thoughts & Review


The story had me gripped right from the start. I didn’t want it to end but at the same time I wanted to get to the end to find out what happens. It’s a very atmospheric psychological thriller.

The plot had many twists and turns that kept me guessing till the very end.

This was my first C. L. Taylor book and I thought the writing was really good. It felt simple and easy to follow yet at the same time it had a lot of tension in the way it was written, and I flew through the pages. I also thought that the pacing was great it didn’t slow and this kept me turning pages.  

I also liked how the character Anna developed as the book progresses. It was really interesting to see the development of Anna’s characters and the others through the back stories, especially when it comes to learning and reading about the other characters.

This was a fab read. If you’re looking for a fast paced, unputdownable psychological thriller this is definitely a book that I recommend. I can’t wait to read more books by C.L. Taylor. 

I would like to thank the publishers Avon Books UK and NetGalley for providing me with an eARC in return for an honest and unbiased review.

    • Thank you Darina!!! It sure did, I’m so glad it delivered after all the hype. Especially as I haven’t had much luck with hyped up books recently.


      • Yes I just got the book. Yes I will share my review.
        On the side, I read No way out by Cara Hunter and I really loved the book and the suspense. It was an awesome read. I am yet to get around writing the review on the book. Just wanted to thanks for the recommendation.
