Waterstones Says

The salty tang of the sea pervades Bouchard’s gripping and atmospheric whodunit as the search for a missing fisherwoman unearths a host of buried secrets and intense danger for Detective Morales.

Shortlisted for the CWA Crime Fiction in Translation Dagger 2021.

In this beautiful, lyrical sequel to the critically acclaimed We Were the Salt of the Sea, Detective Morales finds that a seemingly straightforward search for a missing fisherwoman off Quebec's Gaspe Peninsula is anything but ... 

It's not just the sea that holds secrets... When an abandoned lobster trawler is found adrift off the coast of Quebec's Gaspe Peninsula, DS Joaquin Morales begins a straightforward search for the boat's missing captain, Angel Roberts - a rare female in a male-dominated world. But Morales finds himself blocked at every turn - by his police colleagues, by fisheries bureaucrats, and by his grown-up son, who has turned up at his door with a host of his own personal problems. When Angel's body is finally discovered, it's clear something very sinister is afoot, and Morales and son are pulled into murky, dangerous waters, where old resentments run deep.

Exquisitely written, with Bouchard's trademark lyrical prose, The Coral Bride evokes the power of the sea on the communities who depend on it, the never-ending struggle between the generations, and an extraordinary mystery at the heart of both.

“Beautifully written”

This book is beautifully written with long, flowing passages of descriptive prose. Unfortunately, it wasn’t for me perhaps if I had read the first book in the series I would have felt more at ease with the style.
