You know a book is good when you need to share it right away! As new secrets begin to surface, The Sandbank hums with tension and unanswered questions. The author had given some clues about that thing though, I just hadn't put them together. This is more or less where the beginning of the story finds them: Lana falls in the street, a man stops to help, and then they meet his friends, the crew of a yacht named The Blue.
I highly suggest reading The Blue if you are fond of psychological thrillers, mysteries and suspense. Really, how can you ever be satisfied with your old life again? While they're at the resort, they meet a group of travelers that have also left their lives behind and are sailing around the world on a fifty-foot yacht- The Blue.

Really, how can you ever be satisfied with your old life again? Friends Lana and Kitty are on a trip when they are invited to join the crew of a yacht in the Philippines.

I had a difficult time reading it and yet the story itself had so much potential. Their sons, Jacob and Marley, are best friends, also. So one day they close their eyes, spin the globe and go wherever there finger lands -the Philippines. I have travelled from the East to the West coast, but The Blue has left me with a need to travel overseas, although…I may steer clear of yachts for a while. It was necessary to sail before March 15th, Lana attempted to understand why so much seemingly important information wasn't shared openly among the crew. Although the twists and turns throughout the novel were rather subdued, I did not predict the ending. Does it look the same as you imagined? The mystery of what happened on board The Blue and the secrets that everyone kept.
It was also a wonderful audio travelling companion. .

Threading together beautiful, wild settings and suspenseful twists, A Single Breath is a gripping tale of secrets, betrayal, and new beginnings. Beach and vacation are not a requirement but I believe they would definitely heighten the enjoyment of the subject matter. Lucy Clarke's The Blue has all the ingredients for a fantastic beach read. What she discovers, however, is that her husband was not the man she thought he was. Sometimes though, it's fun to just go along for the yacht ride with something you don't have to think about too much.

It was not at all your typical thriller, but was still very mysterious. The gray-green sea swills with current as she searches it for Jackson. Besides being creative and enchanting, she has a way of making her readers want more.
What I love most about a psychological thriller and what I think makes one successful is an unpredictable turn of events. The word still sounded fresh and sweet. I like to try and outsmart characters in books by working out what is going on before they do. They spent their days exploring new islands, swimming, snorkelling and sunbathing.

The tension builds slowly in this very atmospheric novel like a tropical storm getting ready to suddenly let loose. Now is her time after leaving The Blue and hearing that the boat sunk and it's crew is lost at sea with Search and Rescue looking for them. And yes considering how the story plays out this is very cleverly done by Clarke, but for me it was a bit of a sticking point. Make sure you top up on suntan lotion if you read it by the pool or on the beach because you won't want to move a muscle until you reach The End.
