“I’m dreaming. I must be. I had a few drinks too many last night, and I’m having a funky dream…I pinch myself on the arm to try and speed the process along, but nothing happens. Without thinking too much about it I aim a punch at the wall, and the resulting pain that reverberates through my hand feels all too real. Am I dreaming?”
Natalie Byron had a happy life in Glasgow. She had a steady job, supportive friends and a loving family. Or at least, she thought she did. The morning after a date, Natalie wakes up inside a strange house, in a strange bed, sleeping next to a man named Jamie who claims he is her boyfriend. Outside the window are rugged cliffs surrounded by endless sea.
All her things are here. The clothes in the drawer are hers and so are the bottles of shampoo in the bathroom. But this isn’t her life and Jamie certainly isn’t her boyfriend. Fearing she’s been kidnapped, Natalie flees, but not one person on the island will help her. When everyone around her insists that her life in Glasgow is nothing but a delusion, Natalie begins to doubt her own sanity.
But there is one thing Natalie is sure of. She needs to get off this island.

Absolutely fantastic book, loved EVERY second of reading it. The characters are so life like it’s almost as if you know them. Wonderfully written, a must read.
Page turner – great read!
Mystery, fear and excitement – cleverly weaved together to keep the reader interested to the very end.
Intriguing from start to finish.
Highly recommend, a great read.
A superb insight into the mind of a twisted and highly intelligent character in this book. And, of course the manipulation of Natalie and others throughout the story…. Hopefully, there’s a sequel or two in the works.
Simply all-consuming to the end. Excellent!
A brilliantly written book. Exciting and intriguing all the way through. Very cleverly put together kept me guessing and wondering where it would end. Highly recommend and hopefully more like this to come from this author.
