Sleep by C L Taylor
To date, I have thoroughly enjoyed every single book that C L Taylor has written, and always pounce with great anticipation on any new ones that come along, so I was delighted to be invited to review ‘Sleep’…and as always I was hooked.
The book opens with the key event; Anna has been out with her work colleagues, with whom it’s fair to say that she doesn’t have the best of working relationships! There is a disagreement, a distraction – and a horrific car crash. Two of her passengers die, one is permanently disabled – and Anna is injured, but after a stay in hospital, she walks away!
But Anna carries guilt, the blame for the accident sitting heavily on her shoulders; she struggles to sleep, suffering from nightmares and terrors as she relives the crash, and becomes increasingly paranoid, convinced that someone is out to get her.
Finally, in desperation, Anna flees to a new job and a new start as a hotel receptionist on a remote Scottish island. However, as clouds gather over the island, and its occupants become stranded by the storm things take a sinister turn….
I really enjoyed this book. It certainly kept me reading long into the night!
I give it 4 stars.
