Sous chef Aimee Tierney has the perfect recipe for the perfect life: marry her childhood sweetheart, raise a family, and buy out her parents’ restaurant. But when her fiancé, James Donato, vanishes in a boating accident, her well-baked future is swept out to sea. Instead of walking down the aisle on their wedding day, Aimee is at James’s funeral—a funeral that leaves her more unsettled than at peace.

As Aimee struggles to reconstruct her life, she delves deeper into James’s disappearance. What she uncovers is an ocean of secrets that make her question everything about the life they built together. And just below the surface is a truth that may set Aimee free…or shatter her forever.

My Goodreads rating: ★★★★☆

Publication date: August 1st, 2016

Thanks to netgalley & the publisher for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

I really liked this book. For a debut, it’s really good. The story is intense. Aimee’s determination to find out what has happened to her fiancé really comes through. I love the turn the story takes – you literally have no idea what to expect as while Aimee is sure James is still alive, there really is no proof.

The story takes place over quite a long time as well, so although the romance feels a little forced to start with, it doesn’t seem rushed in the long run. I’m certainly interested to see what new mysteries the sequel throws up.
