After the Crash ~ by Emma Davies, 2021, fiction (England)
Louisa Adams has done her best to hold herself together since she lost her husband in a car accident, but each morning she wakes up alone is more painful than the last. She hopes moving into the crumbling seaside hotel her daughter and son-in-law just bought in Devon will help put what’s left of her broken family back together. While she's there, Louisa is offered a final chance to save her career by writing an article on a local sand artist, Isaac. As they explore the rugged coastline’s hidden coves together — living and laughing like she never thought she would again — Louisa is fascinated by this man who creates beautiful sculptures on the shoreline, until the discovery of a charcoal scribble in one of his sketchbooks links him to the death of her husband.
