Mystical Crime Novel

We Were the Salt of the Sea

I was asked to review this by Lovereading.

This book is just out in publication this April 2018.

Wow this book had such a mystical feel -but this is crime fiction and it certainly packs a punch it was atmospheric and that transferred to the authors very unique style of writing which worked so well.

Catherine Day finds herself in a remote fishing village in search of her mother - it appears the villagers do not like her mother. A female body is pulled from the water in a fisherman net who she recognises.  Thus begins an investigation led by Detective Sergeant Joaquin Morales having recently moved to the area. 

The author carefully introduces the main characters which has a bearing as the story cleverly unfolds. Then the pace quickens and the reader is taken into this close knit fishing village  and the problems of solving the death of the female.

The reader will be taken on a journey of questions, love and loss. You can close your eyes and feel the sea.

Recommended and will be up in the top ten very quickly a must read for 2018
