Blurb:

A British nanny looking for a low-key summer finds buried secrets, murderous attention, and unexpected romance when she visits the Nantucket Sound in this heart-pounding novel.

The Nantucket Sound is a beachfront playground for the privileged and elite, where the sunny days are filled with scenic bike rides, backyard picnics, and bonfire parties.

But all Ren Kingston—a visiting Brit still reeling from heartbreak—really wants is a quiet summer as a nanny for one of Nantucket’s wealthy families. Getting acquainted with handsome Jeremy and his young group of trust fund, private school kids was not part of the plan. Neither was befriending the local bad boy whose reputation is more dangerous than charming.

After a dead body is found next to The Sound’s postcard-perfect view, Ren starts to wonder where the real threat lies. Because it’s becoming clear that her newfound “friends” are much more than they seem. They’re hiding secrets. Secrets that Ren wants no part of.

But once The Sound has you in its current, it won’t want to let you go…


This is a complete story in one book. No cliffhanger!
It’s clean but has some steamy kisses.
I really loved it. It grabbed me from the start and I couldn’t stop. I read it all in one sitting, staying up all night to finish it. It was gripping and had me on the edge of my seat but it wasn’t depressing at all, which I love. I didn’t see the twists coming. I was thrilled that Jessie stopped Ren from having regrets – you’ll see what I mean. I was very satisfied with the ending. Overall, I absolutely loved this book and highly recommend it.
