Her family's cottage on the New Jersey shore was a place of freedom and innocence for Julie Bauer, until her seventeen-year-old sister, Isabel, was murdered. It's been more than forty years since that August night, but Julie's memories of her sister's death still shape her world. Now someone from her past is raising questions about what really happened that night. About Julie's own complicity. About a devastating secret her mother kept from them all. About the person who went to prison for Izzy's murder, and the person who didn't. Faced with questions and armed with few answers, Julie must gather the courage to revisit her past and untangle the complex emotions that led to one unspeakable act of violence on the bay at midnight.… (mer)

Girlfriends, this is Diane Chamberlain at her finest. A page turner with a good plot and twists at the end. A perfect summer/beach read! ( )

I really enjoyed this book. The characters were interesting and the story really held my attention. It was incredibly sad at times. I did like the way the author tied up loose ends and the family got the closure they needed in the ending. ( )

The Bay at Midnight was extraordinary, as each of Diane Chamberlain’s books are unique and different. A complex story of three generations of women, hidden family secrets, death, love, relationships, romance, and mystery. I enjoyed the lake cottage bungalow setting and appreciated the era, as I was born in the 50’s and in my teens in the 60’s -- reminiscent of past summer family vacations, teenage rebellion, segregation, young and forbidden love, and all the other fun things. Making you want to return to simpler times when we were 12 and 13 yrs old. (It is always funny to hear of hidden secrets even in generations of the 30s and 40s as were capable of the same mistakes; however, kept them very taboo, due to the times.)

Loved the writing of first person, the teenage loves of next door lake neighbors for both generations, the relation between mother and daughters, sisters, and how Diane portrays them so eloquently, with her past expertise in social work as well as being a talented author – making for a five star novel! Pulled another 3am to finish!
1962 was the year at the Jersey Shores for the setting of the main story which involved 3 sisters (daughters), mother and father, and grandparents at their summer bungalow and another family next door with two sons and a dad with a past connection to the mother. This was the setting for a night of horror with a murder of the oldest sister, cover ups, guilt, and the wrong person dying in prison and not until years later did the mystery start to unravel which changed the lives of all involved.

Combine this with current day events of Julie’s struggle with her pregnant daughter, the strained relationship between Julie and her mother Maria, secrets of years past, and the reentering of her past next door neighbor and a new budding friendship and romance. Faced with questions, and guilt it is now time for courage as all these families have to revisit their past and gather courage to face the complex emotions which led to the one unexplained night at midnight on the bay. Looking forward to her new books for 2013 “The First Lie” (June) and “Necessary Lies” (Sept)!

It's been more than forty years since that August night, but Julie's memories of her sister's death still color her world, causing turmoil in her relationships with her teenage daughter, Shannon, and her mother, Maria.

Now an unexpected phone call from someone in her past raises questions about what really happened that night. Questions about Julie's own complicity, about a devastating secret her mother kept from them all. Questions about the man who went to prison for Izzy's murder--and about the man who didn't.

My Thoughts:

I really enjoyed this book. For me it had a bit of everything, a murder mystery, family secrets, a love interest and childhood friendships.

What I do enjoy about this type of book is that I can really get stuck in, and engrossed in the story. The story itself was quite good and there was plenty there for me not to get bored and not ending up flicking pages just to see how t is going to end.

My only niggle is that one character did have a very convenient ending and I felt that it could have been handled it differently. I also found the who culprit was a bit predictable as the story progressed but again nothing to detract from the book.

I haven’t read any DC books before but I will read more by her and this book for me was a good find for 50p. Highly Recommended. ( )
