I read everything Alice Feeney writes and while this one wasn‘t my favorite I‘m giving it a soft pick. I couldn‘t sleep last night so sat up reading. I didn‘t care for the end and that‘s all I‘ll say as I don‘t want to spoil it for others.

I usually don‘t like when stories jump from one genre to another but this one definitely worked for me during my autumn mood. Many similarities with And Then There Were None, that‘s why I read that book first. This story is sad, dark, gory and creepy in terms of who did it. I didn‘t see that twist coming at all. I loved Nana and her relationship with Daisy. Definitely, I enjoy this author‘s writing style. So character driven, psychological. 4⭐️

This is a psychological suspense thriller with a spectacular twist at the end. Daisy arrives at her Nana‘s house in the Cornish area for her 18th birthday and it is also Halloween. I didn‘t expect the ending as it was a complete surprise to me. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book as Alice Feeney has outdone herself with this one. If you love psychological suspense then you will love this book.

TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!!! 4d

"????????? ?? ???? ????????? ????????????? ?? ??? ???? ???????, ?? ?????? ???? ???? ????? ?????? ?????? ?? ???."⁣

A fun, locked room thriller that takes place the night before Halloween. It reminds me of Agatha Christie's "And Then There Were None". It kept my attention the whole time and I wasn't really able to guess whodunnit or the twist at the end.

Interesting take on Agatha Christie‘s And Then There Were None. Parts of the story are in flashback to the eighties, which was fun. The twists were not difficult to figure out, but overall I had an enjoyable reading experience.

Daisy Darker and her family reunite to celebrate her Nana‘s 80th birthday, but events take a dark turn when people are murdered one by one.

Clue ✨ Agatha Christie ✨ Dysfunctional

NOTES: Thrillers are not my thing, but I‘ll keep searching for one that will finally surprise me.

…And I think I know what the big final twist is. No matter, I am enjoying the story. Some over-hyped books fall short for me (“Crawdads”), but I am enjoying all the family dysfunction…. #audiobooks #hypedbooks #mystery

TBH I was sure I was going to like this one at first. The first few chapters were heavy on exposition, and I found myself yearning for some action. But it ended up blowing. Me. Away. The major twist blindsided me! All the hints were there, hidden in plain sight, but Feeney is a crafty, devious little fox and I love it! Definitely one of my favorite "And Then There Were None" homages.

11-8-22: My 112th finished book of 2022! Daisy and the Darker family-Nana, her estranged parents, her two older sisters and Conor the boy from down the road-are called together in 2004 to celebrate Nana‘s 80th birthday on Halloween. One thing about the house on Blacksand Bay is that the tide goes out and you are stuck until the next morning. It‘s then that folks start dying. In very peculiar ways. ⬇️There‘s more⬇️

GidgetsTreasures75 Daisy must help her family figure who might be the culprit. It can‘t be one of them because they never leave each other‘s sides. Kept me guessing until the surprising end. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️📖#️⃣1️⃣1️⃣2️⃣ 3w

Feeney‘s fifth book just might be my favorite!! And I‘m glad I waited to read my August #BOTM pick until the Halloween weekend- opening up on the 30th and ending in the early hours of Halloween morning. Narrated by the titular character, the Darker family gathers at Nana‘s crumbling mansion by the Cornish sea where family secrets- and dead bodies- are revealed. A twisting plot full of real surprises makes this hard to put down! I loved it!

CBee I just finished this and WOW that twist at the end floored me!! She is amazing at the crazy twists! 1mo
TorieStorieS @CBee I know!! So glad you enjoyed it too!! Can‘t wait for her sixth book! 1mo

I was surprised how much I enjoyed this. I normally despise domestic thrillers, but this is more of a locked door mystery that involves domestic issues. I loved it!

This was the PERFECT spooky Halloween read. Different from the other books I‘ve read by her, but with the same twists she‘s known for! I was FLOORED by the twist at the end, didn‘t see it coming at all.
She also dedicated this book to her dog and that makes me love her even more ♥️

This was a hard-earned grid - accomplishing both The Witches and Dracula! The tagged was my favorite of the set.

5* = Loved It, want to shout out loud about this book! I do/will own/keep a physical copy. A+
4*= I liked it, would love to discuss. Solid B
3*=Meh, no need to discuss. Average C
2*=Nope D
1*=DNF F

JohnLAndBenji Bram Stoker‘s Dracula had too much racism. It offended my friends. Not sure why it is getting that high of a rating, but that‘s just me. 1mo
marleed @JohnLAndBenji I respect your opinion. Since it was written in 1897, I wasn‘t offended. However, I did have those feelings inside this grid while reading The Witches, Salem 1692 pub in 2015. I wasn‘t comfortable about what was written about non Protestant, non White people of the day. We know better, and I thought the other perspectives should have been better represented. 1mo

The funny thing about this book is that the Daisy‘s voice grated on me—I couldn‘t understand why the author still made her sound so child-like. And that was my only complaint of the book. It‘s weird as hell but cast of characters is delightful. This is locked-room mystery at its finest and it‘s LOVELY. Fans of Agatha and clever mysteries will enjoy this book. It‘s just FUN!

This is a first class mystery; an homage to Dame Christie‘s “And Then There Were None” which is actually mentioned in the text. Daisy Darker‘s family have gathered for Nana‘s birthday. Old family movies begin to appear on video, and as they watch them, the murders begin. The story becomes overwrought toward the end, and the final twist is far too fantastic, but Feeny writes well, and there‘s no question that Daisy‘s family deserve their fate.

I‘m for sure a fan of Feeney‘s books! This one follows an unusual family of people who aren‘t great to each other, coming together for their Nana‘s 80th birthday. But really because they all want to know what they‘ll inherit. But then they start dying. I figured some of the out but not one of the major twists, and I completely enjoyed the ride!

Oh goodness, I‘m so tempted to describe this by the combination of two specific books having a baby, but that would be a spoiler. I think it‘s a hoot to read how authors write the and-then-there-were-none trope, and this one was a fun read. Falling back to some 80s pop culture was added chuckles.

This was a very entertaining Agatha Christie inspired closed door mystery about a family coming together for the matriarch‘s 80th birthday, a will that makes no one happy and a girl slowly unlocking her childhood memories. I don‘t want to say anything else to avoid spoilers. 4⭐️

I love a locked room mystery and I love it even more when it's an "And Then There Were None" style. So this was right up my alley. There were an excessive number of water similes/metaphors in the beginning but Feeney happily left those behind. The way things resolved was very clever but we were hit a little too hard over the head with some of the clues. With the overall format, those could have been toned down and the twist still be believable.

LKK526 I‘m on the fence about reading this. I love locked room mysteries too. I read a sample and couldn‘t decide. Thanks for your review 2mo

Alice Feeney wrote in the acknowledgements that this is her favorite book she has written, and I definitely agree that it‘s also my favorite of hers by far! It‘s atmospheric, chilling, twisty, and darkly fun! It had great Halloween and Agatha Christie vibes, so it is the perfect mystery to read in October! 🎧
