The Sea Sisters by Lucy Clarke ~ UK Giveaway

The Sea Sisters
Harper (9 May 2013)


"People go travelling for two reasons:because they are searching for something, or because they are running from something. For me, it's both".
Sisters, Katie and Mia are coping with their own personal grief after the loss of their mother. Katie, the sensible one stays at home and concentrates on her job and life in London, whilst Mia, the younger and more flighty of the two, decides to go travelling. When news reaches Katie of an appalling tragedy involving Mia, she is determined to discover the truth. Using Mia’s travel journal as a guide, Katie retraces her sister’s footsteps and in doing so throws open a story of lies, deceit and heartbreak.

What then follows is a well written mystery adventure which looks into the complexity of sibling relationships and opens up to scrutiny the minutiae of both Katie’s and Mia’s lives. The story, told by both sisters in alternate chapters, allows the plot to evolve in both the present and in the past, and the travelogue which is central to the story is nicely descriptive and sets the scene well.

Overall, the story is nicely told, it kept my interest from start to finish and I think if you are looking for an interesting holiday read then this one certainly ticks all the boxes. It’s got foreign adventure, mystery, excitement and a smattering of romance.

I really enjoyed it.
