'Girl from the Sea' is very gripping in a unpredictable way, but it's not a feel good story by any means. Mia is washed ashore with no memory of who she is or how she ended up floating in the ocean. Boyfriend Piers takes her home where she finds out she is wealthy, but Piers begins to grate on her. Nice Jack is much easier to like. He is Mia's rowing buddy and a far better support than her family or boyfriend. As she uncovers her past life Mia tries to discover who is really on her side, who is exploiting her and who is trying to murder her.

This author doesn't go for easy cliched answers. Instead she leads the reader down a scary path to a scary conclusion. Definitely a thrill ride.

My Thoughts…
The Girl from the Sea is a psychological thriller that grabs your attention from the beginning and keeps you guessing throughout the book.
I really enjoyed this book; it was a sinister story with twists in the right places to ensure you never really knew who to trust.
The characters were likeable enough, but the ending got me! It had a great plot twist that I honestly did not see coming!
This book is a must read for fans of thrillers!!

What I Liked…
I really enjoyed the storyline, it was dark and sinister and you never really knew who to trust!
Also, that ending!! I honestly didn't see it coming. I thought it was a great plot twist and can see how it can be compared to Gone Girl

What I Disliked…
While the characters were all likeable enough, they all seemed to lack depth. I just couldn't really connect with them. The MC is at best an entitled bitch! I understand that it would be horrible to have a head injury and not remember your life, but suck it up princess!

Overall it was a fun and enjoyable read that kept me on the edge of my seat.

Thank you to Publisher, Adrenalin Books, and NetGalley for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for my honest review.

I really enjoyed this book. From the very start it's packed with mystery, uncertainty and bewilderment as we immediately engage with Mia who has washed up on the seashore and has total memory loss. This isn't just 'can't remember how I ended up here', this is absolute memory loss. She doesn't know her own name, where she is, who she is, where she lives, or even what she looks like when she first looks in a mirror. I was totally captivated by the slow recovery and revelations of Mia's life, learning which foods she liked and meeting afresh people who knew her. As Mia starts to live her new life of discovery she is pleasantly surprised that she lives in a very nice waterside apartment and has a very healthy bank balance. She also has a handsome boyfriend who she doesn't feel comfortable with but doesn't know why. One thing she does seem to take to which was in her forgotten life is rowing.

Of course, it doesn't stay with the mundane day to day life, this is a well plotted psychological thriller and all in Mia's life is not as pleasant as she first thought. The rowing club which she is so strongly drawn to holds many answers to recovering the memories of her forgotten life. But how does she know whether the visions she has of drowning are real or a dream, and why does her neighbour dislike her so much?

I found this to be very well written with a well put together plot. The writing is very fluid and so easy to read that I was half way through in no time at all and couldn't wait to find out what happened next. The characters are engaging and realistic, though not always likeable, and I felt from the beginning that I was inside Mia's head – I felt I knew what she was going through and had deep sympathy for her.

A young woman is found on the beach, washed ashore. She knows nothing of what has happened due to amnesia. As her body quickly recovers, will her mind ever do the same? Bit by bit she discovers her life before drowning, but even more questions remain unanswered. Why won’t anybody tell her the truth, was it an accident or could she have been a victim of some foul play? Even more disturbing: why does she have recurring nightmares of a woman who obviously wants to harm her.

This is Shalini Boland’s debut as a crime novelist, and what a promising author she is, plotting her tale towards an unpredictable ending. That is something I really like in a crime novel, to be surprised and set on the wrong foot, yet again. The plot is gripping and once you’ve started reading, you will have to keep on reading, you need to know how the story will end.
