Review - Sleep by C.L. Taylor

Sleep by C.L. Taylor
Publisher: Avon
Release date: 4 April 2019
Back cover blurb: All Anna wants is to be able to sleep. But crushing insomnia, terrifying night terrors and memories of that terrible night are making it impossible. If only she didn’t feel so guilty… To escape her past, Anna takes a job at a hotel on the remote Scottish island of Rum, but when seven guests join her, what started as a retreat from the world turns into a deadly nightmare. Each of the guests have a secret, but one of them is lying – about who they are and why they're on the island. There's a murderer staying in the Bay View hotel. And they've set their sights on Anna. Seven strangers. Seven secrets. One deadly lie. Someone’s going to sleep and never wake up…

Anna cannot Sleep.

After being in a horrific car accident which caused fatal and life changing injuries to her travelling colleagues, she feels nothing but guilt and suffers recurring nightmares. Even though she knows deep down, that the crash wasn’t her fault.

Anna believes that she needs to get away, so she applies for and is offered a job on the remote Scottish island of Rum. The “hotel” she joins is really a glorified guests house, and the only accommodation for visitors or indeed anyone who wants to stay overnight on the Island.

Anna believes that the first intake of guests after she arrives are okay, some a little strange, but a good set of strangers nonetheless. But one of them knows exactly who Anna is and is determined that she should not be enjoying her life, when she was involved in the crash that ended the life of another.

Each of the guests are secretive and cause suspicion in their own unique individual way, and by the time Anna realises that one of the group may have an ulterior motive for their visit to Rum it may be too late for her to do anything about it...

Sleep (or lack of) is the perfect title for this novel, because I guarantee that once you’ve picked it up you won’t be able to sleep until you’ve finished it.

An absolute must read.
