- In stock
Set in a stunning South Carolina resort, The House on Fripp Island is a beautifully-crafted, atmospheric novel full of secrets, with characters that leap off the page. As two families come together to share a holiday house, emotions and tensions soon mount. Kauffman has created an insightful family saga combined with an atmospheric, suspenseful whodunit.
Fripp Island, South Carolina, is the perfect destination for the wealthy Daly family: Lisa, Scott, and their two girls. For Lisa's childhood friend, Poppy Ford, the resort island is a world away from the one she and Lisa grew up in-and when Lisa invites Poppy's family to join them, how can she turn down an all-expenses paid vacation for her husband and children?
But everyone brings secrets to the island, distorting what should be a convivial, relaxing summer on the beach. Lisa sees danger everywhere, while Poppy watches over her husband John and his routines with a sharp eye.
It's a summer of change for all of the children too, who are exposed to new ideas and different ways of life as they forge a bond of their own. While revelations from the past and present unfold, the book builds to a shocking event that will shake your sense of justice and leave you wanting to talk about crime and retribution. It's a great book to pass on to a friend, but please don't tell them too much. If you can't wait, get in touch with us ...
