Swimming lessons by Claire Fuller. Read in 2016, released 26th January
*I received a netgalley copy in return for an honest review.
The author’s first novel was my first read of 2016 and I found it incredibly atmospheric and moving. This is my 183rd read of 2016 & I am glad to see that the author hasn’t changed her style.
The novel is tough to review without leaving any spoilers for future readers, which I do not intend to do. But I will say this I think this a descriptive novel of ‘what could have been’ & how life may not always go the way we foresaw or intended it to.
The setting is perfect, I was looking for a nice coastal mystery and I was glad I found it!
I can see this novel having huge appeal to book groups as it has so much to debate and discuss. So I would hugely recommend to those who run book groups or are members. 4*
