Synopsis from Goodreads: Coming home dredges up deeply buried secrets...

Kieran Elliott's life changed forever on the day a reckless mistake led to devastating consequences.

The guilt that still haunts him resurfaces during a visit with his young family to the small coastal community he once called home.

Kieran's parents are struggling in a town where fortunes are forged by the sea. Between them all is his absent brother, Finn.

When a body is discovered on the beach, long-held secrets threaten to emerge. A sunken wreck, a missing girl, and questions that have never washed away...

My Review: This book was extremely well written with well rounded and developed characters. They were flawed but not in a way that made you hate them. I really liked the narrator and found her voice to be both soothing and haunting. All of that being said though the book was a bit too heavy for me. Which is a total mood reader thing for me. The 3 month old baby that they toted around everywhere also stressed me out and took me out of the story. So overall while this was a well done audiobook and story, it just wasn't for me.

*I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book which I received from the publisher. All opinions are my own.*
