Today is my stop on the blog tour for Sleep and I am here today with a review of this amazing book.
**A copy of this book was provided to me for free in exchange for an honest review**
Title: Sleep Author: C. L. Taylor Publisher: Avon Published: 4th April 2019 Pages: 368 Format: Hardback Source:: Review Copy from Publisher Add It:Amazon UKGoodreads. Summary: 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…
One of the best words to describe this book is, atmospheric. C. L. Taylor has made the setting of this book remote – and for good reason – and with this setting comes a very atmospheric novel that will grip you from the very first sentence until the very last. Which, to be honest, is what I would expect from this very talented author. With the knowledge from the start that something off is going on, as a reader you are continuously second guessing every single character in the novel. What are their motives? Are they the stalker? How will this all end?
With these questions and thoughts spiraling throughout the book, it is easy to see why this book is a natural page-turner. I simply had to know what was going on. Halfway through the book, the person you think it might be is taken out of the scene completely, leaving you at square one on the suspect list. I actually loved how this came about. It made the book more exciting, more tense and all the more enjoyable. I am not going to say too much more as I do not want to spoil, yet another masterpiece from C. L. Taylor, but I will say that it is definitely worth giving this book a read. You will not be disappointed.
