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…
First Line of Sleep by C L Taylor
“If you are reading this, then I am no longer alive.”
My Thoughts on Sleep by C L Taylor
A page turner featuring complex characters, delving deep in to how guilt can affect your life. I thought this a little difficult to get Into at the start, because there are so many characters to get to know.
But my persistence paid off, as the plot is tense, terrifying and terrific! If you have problems sleeping, this book will fill those restless hours for you. And if you can nod off easily, this book might change that, as you’ll want to keep reading till you unravel everything.
I loved the desolate setting too, it had vibes of Agatha Christie for me. But this is no cosy little mystery. It’s big, bad and nightmarish.#Sleep by @callytaylor is no cosy little mystery. It’s big, bad and nightmarish. Click To Tweet

Who should read Sleep by C L Taylor?
Highly recommended to those who like tension, believability and lots of chills from their suspense novels. I think fans of C L Taylor’s previous books will enjoy this one. Also recommended to fans of Jo Spain, Lucy Dawson and Shalini Boland.
