Sleep by C.L. Taylor | Review

Sleep | C.L. Taylor | HarperCollins | Pub: April 4, 2019 | Pages: 368

I love lock-room mysteries, and mysteries revolving around isolated cottages/hotels where each guest reveals secrets and lies. They are probably my favourite type of book! This one definitely falls in this category! However, I must say this wasn’t my favourite “lock-room” mystery book, only because it was so slow in the beginning, it took a while for me to get into it. However, once the story picks up, watch out, you will not be able to put this down! In addition, the writing was superb! C.L. Taylor killed it with the atmospheric writing! Made me feel like I was in the remote Scottish countryside!

I’m 100% a C.L Taylor fan now and want to read all of her books!

Such a gripping thriller! Highly recommend!

Thank you to Avon Books UK for providing me with an electronic ARC of this book via NetGalley. As usual, my reviews are my honest and unbiased opinions.


All Anna wants is to be able to sleep. But crushing insomnia, terrifying night terrors and memories of that terrible night are making it impossible. If only she didn’t feel so guilty…

To escape her past, Anna takes a job at a hotel on the remote Scottish island of Rum, but when seven guests join her, what started as a retreat from the world turns into a deadly nightmare.

Each of the guests have a secret but one of them is lying – about who they are and why they’re on the island. There’s a murderer staying in the Bay View hotel. And they’ve set their sights on Anna.

Seven strangers. Seven secrets. One deadly lie.

Someone’s going to sleep and never wake up…
