THEY TOLD THE POLICE IT WAS THE PERFECT SUMMER. THEY WERE LYING.

August, 1997. Matilda is killed in a tragic accident on the Dorset rocks, leaving her best friend Sophie alone, wracked with guilt.

Decades later, Sophie is back for the first time since that terrible summer, to sell her family’s old beach hut and bury the memories forever.

But on clearing out the hut, she finds evidence that Matilda’s death was no accident. What really happened the night she died?

As Sophie edges closer to the truth, the past starts to close in on the present.

Because the close-knit community is still home to a killer, and they want Sophie gone.

Reviews

The innocence of children blossoming into adults during the lazy hazy days of a beach summer only to be devastated by a terrible tragedy is so beautifully and deftly handled that it's hard to believe this is a debut. The Beach Hut positively sizzles. It's as twisty as a sand worm castle with a plot that sizzles with dread and suspense!
Tina Orr Munro, author of Slaughterhouse Farm
Leah has spun a gripping, knotty web of secrets with a cast of complex characters. The setting is wonderful, drawing the reader in . . . before whipping up a storm that brings a cloudy, claustrophobic atmosphere of lies and paranoia that leaves you turning the pages faster and faster.
Natalie Chandler
'A tense and compelling tale of love and loss, secrets, and lies -- and their terrible consequences. Builds to a thrilling ending. I tore through this in two days!'
MK Murphy, author of DEAD MAN WALKING
A compulsive, page-turning thriller - kept me invested and guessing from start to finish. Loved it
Jennie Godfrey, Sunday Times bestselling author of THE LIST OF SUSPICIOUS THINGS
Atmosphere, intrigue and decades old secrets and lies uncovered on the tide - this novel has it all.
Sarah Lawton, author of All the Little Things
