Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!

Fascinating family drama and mystery, together with history- The Lost Notebook by Louise Douglas

A notebook full of secrets, two untimely deaths – something sinister is stirring in the perfect seaside town of Morranez…

My Review:

Mila Shepherd has travelled to the idyllic Brittany coast where
 She's staying so for her orphaned teen niece, Ani, she can care.
She's also taken her sister's role in the agency
Helping tracking down missing persons, as you'll see.
However, she doesn't plan to stay
Once Ani has gone to boarding school, she'll also go away.

 A story filled with family drama and mystery
With links to the past and tragic history.
The tragic death of an old lady has Mila perplexed
And no one else interested has her feeling vexed.
The old lady's notebook has disappeared
Where is it now? Lost forever Mila feared.

As mischief and mayhem come into play
Can Mila stay safe, keep danger away?
A slow start leads to a riveting read and so
I highly recommend you give this fascinating book a go!
For my complementary copy of this book, I say thank you,
I throughly enjoyed reading it and this is my honest review.

P.S. Really hope this proves to be the first in a new series!!


It’s summer and holidaymakers are flocking to the idyllic Brittany coast. But when first an old traveller woman dies in suspicious circumstances, and then a campaign of hate seemingly drives another victim to take his own life, events take a very dark turn.

Mila Shepherd has come to France to look after her niece, Ani, following the accident in which both Ani’s parents were lost at sea. Mila has moved into their family holiday home – The Sea House – as well as taken her sister Sophie’s place in an agency which specialises in tracking down missing people, until new recruit Carter Jackson starts.

It’s clear that malevolent forces are at work in Morranez, but the local police are choosing to look the other way. Only Mila and Carter can uncover the truth about what’s really going on in this beautiful, but mysterious place before anyone else suffers. But someone is desperate to protect a terrible truth, at any cost…
