Croyde Beach

We visited Croyde Beach on a misty day in April. Brandy had never seen the sea up close and we wanted to see if she had those spaniel sea-legs people kept talking about.

Into The Water - Paula Hawkins


This book reminded me quite a bit of another book I read last summer, which unfortunately had the advantage of having a more attractive front cover but also an altogether more interesting plot. That book was Sarah Perry's The Essex Serpent. This novel: Paula Hawkins' Into The Water, has been acclaimed as a follow up to yet another markedly better book The Girl On The Train. Despite the accolade surrounding it's publication, I hadn't read Hawkins' other novel, and so I went into this one without any real thoughts. Unfortunately, I didn't come out of it with any either.
