Whisper Island by Carissa Ann Lynch

I’ve been really into “locked room” mysteries lately. A “locked room” mystery is one where a bunch of people are stuck in one location where a murder occurs and, most of the time, murders continue to occur. One of the most classic examples of this is “And Then There Were None” by Agatha Christie. This book falls into this category too!

Thank you Harper Collins UK One More Chapter for my gifted ebook in exchange for my honest review.

Synopsis: For friends Riley, Sam, Mia and Scarlett, their trip to Whisper Island was meant to be a once in a lifetime adventure – just four young women, with everything to live for…But as soon as they arrive things start to go wrong. First there is the unexpected arrival of Sammy’s drug addict brother and his girlfriend Opal – why are they here? And then the deaths begin. As the dream trip quickly turns into a nightmare, suspicion is high. Are they really alone on the island? Or is there a killer hiding in the shadows? And as each of the girls reveals a dark secret of their own, perhaps the truth is the killer is closer than they think…just a whisper away…

I think the hard thing about reading a bunch of “locked room” mysteries is that they start to blend together. I’ve read a lot most recently, which left me feeling that this book isn’t as original as I thought it could have been. If you are new to these type of mysteries, then I think you will absolutely love this!
