The New York Times bestselling Queen of Twists returns…with a family reunion that leads to murder.

After years of avoiding each other, Daisy Darker’s entire family is assembling for Nana’s 80th birthday party in Nana’s crumbling gothic house on a tiny tidal island. Finally back together one last time, when the tide comes in, they will be cut off from the rest of the world for eight hours.

The family arrives, each of them harboring secrets. Then at the stroke of midnight, as a storm rages, Nana is found dead. And an hour later, the next family member follows…

Trapped on an island where someone is killing them one by one, the Darkers must reckon with their present mystery as well as their past secrets, before the tide comes in and all is revealed.

With a wicked wink to Agatha Christie’s And Then There Were NoneDaisy Darker’s unforgettable twists will leave readers reeling.

This is the third book I have read of Alice Feeneny and so far, I haven’t been disppointed at all!

Daisy Darker returns to Seaglass to celebrate her Nana’s birthday which falls on the Halloween day. Nana invited all the members of the Darker family including Daisy’s parents and sisters Rose and Lily. None of the family members have been in touch with each other and so this was quiet a reunion. But soon, the reunion turns into something sinister when one of them could be a killer and everyone is hiding a secret…

This was really good–the story is set in the year 2004 but moves back and forth between 1988 and 2004. The story had an air of horror element in it–particular the setting sounded more like you are watching some type of a horror movie. There were some twists and turns and in my opinion, this was quiet a page turner. I do like the poems written in the books, the fact that a poem is written about each member of the family, describing about their personalities. If you have read any of Agatha Christie’s book, this has some vibes of it.

Overall, this was a creepy, thriller in my opinion which worth five stars!
