A beautiful book, slow to start, with characters dispersed in the fishing town, hiding their deepest secrets. Until a fisherman John was lost at sea, the town and its members unraveled. The story dealt with the repercussions of losing a loved one and revealing the secrets.

My first book by author Erica Boyce, the story pulled me in one chapter at a time until I was completely immersed in its characters. The writing felt dismembered initially until the author craftily joined all the connections together. It soon felt I too was part of this rich tapestry.

The book was different than my thrillers, dealing with a lot of social issues, it still could make my pulse jump with its secrets. The characters complexed and flawed, wanting a good life, soon touched my heart with their light and dark shades. They were just so human. The story was character driven, the prose subtle in its poignancy, there was something quite deep as the sea in Erica’s writing that I was lost in.

A delightful afternoon read.

I received a free ARC from NetGalley and the publisher, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.

When beloved local fisherman John Staybrook is lost at sea his death stirs up more than grief. Hidden secrets throughout the small community begin to bubble to the surface, and everyone from the local librarian to the nurses at the hospital are swept up in the storm.

For fans of Kerry Lonsdale and Emily Bleeker, LOST AT SEA is a mysterious yet uplifting family drama with unexpected twists that explores a small town community caught up in the disappearance of one man, the resurgence of tightly held secrets, and the lengths we will go to protect the ones we love.
