Two estranged sisters find reconciliation a challenge when a family secret lies locked in the past.
Struggling artist, Lucy, and her successful sister, Rhea, make the bold decision to go on holiday together to Dalyan in Turkey, to try to heal their relationship and so fulfil their father’s dying wish. But despite their best efforts, the bereaved sisters soon realise that Lucy’s passionate nature and Rhea’s restraint means it’s difficult to find comfortable common ground. Lucy wants to bond, but Rhea would rather read her novel. When Lucy tries to get Rhea to talk about their childhood and why their relationship suddenly deteriorated, Rhea refuses to discuss it and Lucy becomes suspicious Rhea is hiding something.
Against the backdrop of the beautiful turtle beach, tensions soon escalate between them, while other characters help or hinder, and Lucy is finally forced to come up with a plan to get her sister to open up. She plots to get Rhea alone and stranded where there will be no escape. Can Lucy discover what family secrets her sister is hiding, the revealing of which could actually threaten to destroy them both?
An exploration of the relationship between two very different sisters after the death of their father, while removed from home turf to the seductive setting of Dalyan.

Lynne was born in Durham City in 1962. After moving to the Scottish Borders in 1998 she rekindled her love of art, becoming an artist, tutor and illustrator, before going on to study with the Open University as a mature student. Here, she gained a first class honours degree in the Humanities, with Literature and Art History, before going on to do a diploma in creative writing . On Turtle Beach is her debut novel, and it was inspired by her interest in human nature and by her love of the natural world, where the novel’s setting of Dalyan in Turkey became a special place in her heart.
Lynne spends her time writing, blogging, painting and volunteering in social care. Having being very much bitten by the writing bug she is currently working on two more novels. One is another women’s fiction story, set in the retail world of the 1990s, the other is a general fiction novel on mid-life changes.
Compulsive activities to fit around this are gardening, reading, meeting a friend for a coffee, and hiking around the fields close to where I live, while listening to my MP3 player.
