The Beach Party: A Completely Gripping Psychological Thriller with a Jaw-dropping Twist | Amy Sheppard
3 posts | 2 read | 3 to read
We were all at the party. Which of us wanted her dead? As the smoke from the bonfire spirals into the night sky and the cool drinks slip down our throats, none of us can take our eyes off Lacey. She dances in the dunes, her long golden hair damp from her late-night swim, her smile dazzling, her blue eyes closed. Everyone who is close to Lacey sits by the smoky fire. Her adoring boyfriend, who holds onto her, perhaps a little too tightly. Her little sister, always in Lacey's shadow, sifting fine soft sand through her fingers, never taking her eyes off Lacey. And me. Sad and full of rage, after an argument forced the man I love to leave the party early. When the fire burns out, we stumble away from the beach, along the cliff path - faces burned by the wind, hearts full of secrets. But Lacey never makes it home. The next morning, her body is found in the sand dunes, a heart-shaped locket missing from around her neck. Who would have thought our beach party could end the way it did? Close friends gathered on the last night of a long hot summer - which one of us could have killed the girl everybody loved? An absolutely gripping psychological thriller with an ending you will NEVER see coming! Strap in for a twisty rollercoaster ride that will keep you turning pages all night long. Perfect for anyone who adored The Holiday, The Guest List or Gone Girl. What everyone is saying about The Beach Party: 'The kind of book that keeps you hooked and guessing till very end...

Unsatisfied with their grown-up jobs, two college friends turn the true crime podcast they run in their spare time into a hit when they investigate the unsolved murder of a girl one of them grew up with. But as her own motives are revealed, the real question isn't how close she is to the crime, but to the killer?

Twisty, turny, and crafty! I devoured this suspenseful thriller all the way to its shocking conclusion!

This was a very enjoyable audiobook. Kept teasing you about who the murderer could be with some interesting developments / twists along the way. It kept me wanting to keep listening.

Starting a new audiobook about a murder that happened 5 years before at a Beach Party, affected peoples‘ lives but has remained unsolved. Can a the people behind a blog solve the case?

Clwojick Ooooh. I love plots where blogs/podcasts are attempting to solve a murder! 5mo
Andrew65 @Clwojick This one is tailor made for you. Should have said podcast not blog. 5mo
