Fans of Martina Cole, Kimberley Chambers and Jessie Keane will be hooked by Fierce Girl.
When loyalty is everything, betrayal hits harder.
Anna Davis has grown up. She’s not the naive runaway who escaped her vicious gangland boyfriend anymore. She’s tougher than ever and she won’t let anyone take advantage of her – or the people she loves.
Anna’s devoted boyfriend, East End baron Freddie Tyler, is in trouble. There’s a rat in his organisation and he needs to stop the leaks before a very big mistake from his past is revealed to people who will want swift and brutal revenge.
Anna wants to help Freddie but she’s got problems of her own. Her best friend Tanya’s mother has turned up, and is staking a claim on Tanya’s share of their club. With Tanya buying her mum’s reformed sinner act, Anna knows she needs to act before both their friendship and Club Anya goes up in flames.
But if there’s one thing Anna and Freddie have learned, it’s how to play the game, and as their enemies close in they’ll fight with everything they’ve got to protect the life they’ve built.
What did I think?
Book 4 to feature Anna Davis. What another brilliant read. Emma Tallon has really set the bar high with these books. I have loved each and every one of them.
From the opening page I was captured back into the world of Anna, Tanya and Freddie and what a world it is. If you haven't read the last book yet then you may want to stop reading now.
Tanya is still in hospital from the results of the ending of the last book. Recovery is slow but Anna is still there for her, still willing everything to be good, even though Anna is going through her own hell.
When Tanya's long lost mother turns up, Anna is very suspicious of her. Does she have a right to be or has Rosie finally turned a corner and come o make amends with her daughter.
Trying to keep club Anya afloat, dealing with so many demons is Anna taking on to much. Freddie is still by her side but knows his Anna is no this woman walking around and just functioning. He'll do all he can to help Anna and get his Anna back to him.
We do get to see a little more of Tanya's background in this book. I found it great getting to know her a little more, I feel I know these characters that bit more with each of the books I've read. Tanya's background was interesting and really added to the story and helped understand her character that bit more.
A fantastic addition to this series, another book that will have you up all night needing and wanting to read it. I just can't fault this series at all, it has everything you want from a gangland thriller. Drugs, Prostitution, betrayal, mafia, gangs, deception, family, loyalty. oh boy I could go on. Did I say this was an epic read?
At times you want to think you know which way the book is going to go, you don't so don't bother brilliant turns in this book help keep you gripped from start to end, then when you reach the end you give a big shout out of NOOOO, all the time reading the book you want to get to the end, when you get there then the end had come to soon, you want the book to go on, and on... I think another 300 pages just wouldn't have been enough. Addictive Read.
Fans of Kimberley chambers, Jessie Keane, Mandasue Heller, Casey Kelleher will love these books, I can't recommend them highly enough.

Previously published as Chasing the Traveller
A fast-paced, totally unputdownable crime thriller that fans of Mel Sherratt, Mandasue Heller and Kimberley Chambers will absolutely love.
I've been wanting to read this book for so long. I first won a copy of Chasing the Traveller, which this book was first called. I didn't get around to reading it for one thing or another always got in the way. Deciding I needed to read some of the books I wanted to read and not just books I needed to review, I dived into this one while passing away time as my little girl was in theatre. I knew the beginning of it quite well as I seemed to have started it not taken anything in then started again, repeat.
I decided to wait until we got home and I could sit back and actually get started with out interuptions.
Once I started there was no stopping me, Although the subject matter isn't a nice one, I found this such an easy book to read. I wasn't trying to take in eleventy billion characters and figure out who was who. We follow the story, the life of Kat Denton. A lady who is in a very abusive and controlling marriage. This story follows Kat on a massive journey. I really had strong emotions through this book and really did feel for Kat. When she finally escaped the marriage we see Kat returning to how things all started, learning of her life before meeting Jimmy and then how things changed once she met him. Her life could only get better but how she does this is up to her.
This book really shows what can happen when in a controlling, abusive relationship. How things are portrayed as 'normal'. how a person can start to believe that they are at fault for everything they do wrong, and even everything they do right. The author has done brilliantly bringing this subject out, and showing that we never know what goes on behind closed doors, as they say.
Brilliantly written and a fantastic yet easy read.
OMG, Kerry is certainly one of my fav authors at the moment. Boy this woman can write.
The second instalment of Kerry Barnes’ explosive new series!Do you live by the rules, or die by them?
Holed up in prison, Mike Regan is offered a deal – his freedom in exchange for his firm taking down the gang that is supplying a new dangerous drug that has hit the streets. What starts as a game soon becomes a shocking revelation with devastating consequences.
Meanwhile, Mike’s fiancé, Zara Ezra, has her own firm to run. But when the so-called Governor is out to take her down, she has her own decision to make – either fight, run, or write her own rule book…
What did I think?
Well where do you start, there is so, so much I want to say about this book, this series. It's absolutely brilliant, it's one of those books that once you start you get lost, lost in the pages, lost with the characters, nothing else in the world matters at the time of reading because you can't think of anything else other than the book. Epic, Just E P I C! This is a must read. This will be going on my 2019 'Must Read' list
I loved the previous book 'The Hunted' and was so looking forward to this, now I've finished 'The Rules' I need 'The Choice' and I need it now. I know there are bigger problems in the world, but my biggest problem in my bookish world is waiting on book 3. July can't come quick enough.
This is one of those books, you want to scream and shout about, but have to be so careful as to not give anything away. What I can say is I love the characters, I love the story line, I have gotten to know a little more of each charcter as the book has gone on and feel like i've been on a journey with them. I really can't wait to find out what is in store next.
Kerry, keep these coming, keep these amazing characters and story lines you make up in your head, oming, becuase i need more.

‘Full of tension’ KAREN HAMILTON
She wants your life – and she’ll do anything to get it…
Erica has always wanted to be exactly like her neighbour, Faye: beautiful, thin, and a mother. But Faye’s life isn’t as perfect as it seems – she has a terrible secret, and slowly but surely, it is threatening to destroy her and everything she holds dear.
When Faye’s daughter Tamsin goes missing after school, the police turn to Erica. But is Erica the only one who has been enviously watching Faye? Or is there another threat hiding in the shadows…?
An unsettling, claustrophobic thriller about jealousy, greed and desire from Sunday Times bestseller Amanda Robson.
Thrilled to be sharing an extract of this book with you
When my run is over, even though I actually enjoyed it for the first time, I feel light-headed, as if I am about to faint. I hobble back to my flat and collapse on my bed. I fall into a deep sleep and dream.
My dream is so sharp. So clear. I’m in my muddy blue tracksuit, my pain has disappeared and I am running effortlessly, wearing gold Lycra and shiny purple trainers, which cushion my feet. People turn their heads as I pass, wanting to admire my fitness. My surreal body is perfect for a sportswear advert. I dream that Nike have asked me to model for them next week. I am running to pick Tamsin up from school. She steps from the classroom door and her face lights up as soon as she sees me; blue eyes with a sapphire shine. She runs into my arms. I hold her against me, wanting to protect her for ever. Tamsin, my heart sings, Tamsin my love.
Then I wake up in my cold damp flat. I look down at my body, my heavy arms and thighs, my baggy clothing that needs washing. Tamsin is not my girl. The dream was so beautiful that when I realise it was only a dream I almost cry.

The Dare (Detective Natalie Ward Book 3)
Jane’s daughter is a good girl. What is she hiding?
When thirteen-year-old Savannah Hopkins doesn’t come straight home from school, as she always does, her mother Jane immediately raises the alarm.
Leading the investigation is Detective Natalie Ward whose daughter Leigh is the same age as Savannah. Soon Natalie’s worst fears are confirmed when the teenager’s broken body is found in nearby shrubland.
Evidence points towards a local recluse, but just as the net is closing around him, one of Savannah’s friends, Harriet, is reported missing.
As Natalie delves into the lives of both girls, she soon discovers a sinister video on their phones, daring the girls to disappear from their families for 48 hours.
But Natalie isn’t quick enough for this killer, and she is devastated to find Harriet’s body on a fly tip a day later.
Caught up in the case, she takes her eye off her own daughter and when Leigh goes missing after school she knows she must be in terrible danger. The clock is ticking for Natalie. Can she catch this killer before her little girl becomes the next victim?
Book 3 in the Detective Natalie Ward series. A gripping read you won't want to put down, but you won't want it to end either. What can I say? I am loving, loving, loving, this series. The author again has beat all expectations and created another fantastic addition to the series.
Natalie is again struggling juggling her home life and her work life, taking her eye off either could cause explosions. But I have to say I wish Natalie and her husband would sort out their issues. lol
Natalie's life is about to get a whole lot tougher. Natalie and her team are brought in to investigate a missing teen . Her body is found a day later having been murdered. It's then, another teen goes missing. It's going to be a race against the clock.
On investigation it appears that these girls have been using a website to carry out dares. Is this the only link to the girls? It's down the Natalie and her wonderful team to get stuck in and do what they do best- Solve cases.
The team work so well together the characters are likeable and realistic. They throw themselves in to the case and work brilliantly as a team. This is a very cleverly put together story, it felt fresh and with the use of the internet for everything in a teenagers life, it added to the realness of the story.
Bravo Carol, another first class read. I'm really liking Natalie's character but would also like a return of Robyn at some stage.

A bereaved husband is faced with a devastating choice in this gritty thriller from the top ten bestselling author Mandasue Heller.
When Frank Peter’s wife Maureen dies, he feels that his once-idyllic life on the Yorkshire Moors is over. And with a daughter emigrating to Australia and a son who has his own marital problems, Frank feels resigned to a life of loneliness. Then one night he finds a frightened young woman hiding at the back of his farmhouse. She explains that her name is Irena and was brought to this country by a man who promised her the world and then forced her into prostitution.
You may also enjoy
I wait in anticipation each year for the release of a new Mandasue Heller book. This author for me is one of those authors whose books I don't even read the blurb for. If Mandasue has written it, I want to read it.
I was really looking forward to reading this book and I can safely say, it did not disappoint.
When Frank lost his lovely wife his life seemed broken and lonely. His daughter is emigrating and his son has his own life to live with his wife. Living on a farm makes him seem even more lonely. not having immediate neighbours and someone you can just chit chat to if you go out your front door, Frank seems to have sunken into a slump.
When hearing noises on the farm one night he goes to investigate and comes across a woman who seems to have been injured some how. It's only normal that frank would want to take her in and help her, you cant leave a young lady out in the cold with her injuries. Over the coming days Frank helps Irena get better, in turn she helps Frank and an unlikely bond develops.
But what is Irena hiding and what is Frank going to find out about her, what is going to end up getting involved with.
This was a brilliant read, it showed how loneliness can affect people and make them very vulnerable. How your quiet life can then seem the best life you could wish for.
This book deals with unpleasant issues, but issues that are also real, we sometimes believe that things only happen in fictional stories but this book covers some of life's real yet unpleasant stories.
I think the author has covered abuse, manipulation, gangs, drugs and prostitution in real light, highlighting that as much as we don't want to believe these things happen, it's a daily occurrence for some.
I look forward to the next book.
Thanks as always to the wonderful Sabah Kahn for allowing me the chance to be part of this blog tour.
‘A heartbreaking tale’ THE SUN
‘Exceptionally beautiful’ MIRANDA DICKINSON
For a decade, Hannah’s life has been pretty close to perfect – she has a great job, she’s married to Mark, and her child-free existence means she’s free as a bird. The only sadness in her life is a fall-out with her sister Diane, who hasn’t spoken to her in over ten years. But now Diane is on her doorstep – and this time, she’s got her teenage daughter Mia in tow.
When Diane asks if Mia can stay with Hannah and Mark for a few days, Hannah is glad of the chance to get to know her niece. But as the days turn into weeks and Diane doesn’t return, Hannah begins to worry. Why hasn’t her sister been in touch?
Diane is carrying a devastating secret that will destroy Hannah’s carefully constructed life. But how much is she willing to reveal – and when will she pick her moment?
An emotional story that delves into the true meaning of family, sisterhood and secrets. Perfect for fans of Kerry Fisher and Adele Parks.
I was eager to read this book as it seemed a little different. An easy to read and follow story based around family, lies and deceit. A great opening had me hooked and the short read I'd planned in the bath turned into a good few chapters.
The story kicks off with Hannah's sister, Diane turning up on her doorstep along with her teenage daughter, Mia. Hannah hasn't seen her sister or her niece for almost a decade. As the books starts you are eager to know why she has turned up, why now? Is she in trouble. There are many thoughts going through Hannah's mind. Hannah phones her husband at work to come home, she needs backup and support.
It seems odd when Diane asks Mark and Hannah if they can watch Mia for a few days. She needs somewhere safe for her daughter to stay, but won't elaborate why.
This is when to book gets really interesting and the story begins to unravel what has gone on in the past.
Is this visit from a long lost sister going to change life for the happy carefree couple Mark and Hannah, when they finally agree that Mia can stay with them. Hannah, although hasn't seen her niece in all these years did love her little niece and had a close bond with her back then. Knowing her husband never wanted to have children was something Hannah went along with. Now they both have a child in their lives even if only temporary is it going to upset their carefully planned out lives.
Can the past be buried and all move on? This book certainly delves into family secrets. If this doesn't make you think about not keeping lies, then nothing will.
This book is a real interesting read with some great mystery built up,it's one of those books that you want to and need to keep going with so once started you'll fly through it. I actually found it quite an addictive read. Great characterisation even though at times some characters did annoy me. lol.

Kerry Barnes is back with an explosive new series!
‘A shocking, gripping read’ Dreda Say Mitchell
Having spent her life watching her father run his East London firm, Zara Ezra has learnt a thing or two about being a gangster, and she’s ready to take over when the time comes.
Mike Regan, a blast from Zara’s past, is the head of his own firm, but when his son is kidnapped in the middle of a gangland feud, Mike has no choice but to accept help from the Ezras to get his little boy back alive.
With a rival firm playing increasingly dirty, murder moves to the top of the agenda and Zara has some big choices to make. It seems that the only way to come out on top is to play them at their own game…
But will she become The Hunter or The Hunted?
A gripping gangland crime thriller, perfect for fans of Martina Cole and Kimberley Chambers.
I first shared this review back in 2018 when the kindle copy was published. I'm now celebrating the paperback release by sharing with you my review again. I have since this, read another of Kerry's latests offerings and belive me when I say this lady is going places. Her writing style is first class and each and every book is just better and better.
If you haven't read a book by Kerry Barnes then you really don't know what you are missing. Curled up over the bonfire weekend, fire roaring and a hot drink in hand, I didn't know what was more explosive, the books or the fireworks outside. It felt like the perfect time to be reading this explosive book.
I don't know where to start, this book has it all Deceit, corruption, murder, feuds, rivalry, violence. It's a first class page turner. If you're a lover of a good gangland thriller, then you really are in for a treat.
The first book in a new series, I believe The Rules should be available in Feb 2019 followed by The Choice in May 2019.
Both available to pre order now.
This book gallops along at an amazing pace. Dragging you right into the story. At times I could feel I was there, I was so engrossed in it. There are, as you would expect some fantastic characters, and I believe like me there will some characters you love, and some you'll hate. Kerry has certainly worked her magic and has managed to bring these characters to life.
I particularly liked Mike Regan, his bad boy, villain character, with a hidden softer side was a fave. Mike's world comes crashing down when his Son Ricky is Kidnapped. Having believed he was protecting his son, he sent his wife away with him thinking they would be safe. Mike enlists the help of Zara, a woman he has a past with, to help find his son. Zara Ezra is the new Woman about town. Having taken over her fathers firm, she has a lot to prove. It's certainly not going to be easy for Zara proving she can cut the mustard in what is believed to be a 'mans world. But Zara certainly isn't a weak and feeble woman, she's a woman with an agenda. A woman with a mind of her own, and power to back it. Or is she?
I can see this becoming one EPIC series of books.
They say time flies by, but it doesn't, it drags like hell when you are waiting for the next book... I'm not sat here drumming my fingers and singing 'why are we waiting'... honest I'm not. lol
Kerry Barnes is certainly making a name for herself in this genre, she's way up there with the best. I'm relatively new to Kerry's books but I can safely say I haven't been disappointed with one yet. They really do get belter and better with each book. When I first read - Cruel Secrets, I really didn't believe not only Kerry, but anyone could top that book. Having read this one, I know I was wrong. Kerry has smashed it, Big time. First class story telling. If you are new to Kerry's books then OMG how awesome as you will get to read them back to back, WOW how exciting is that.
Amazing Grace by Kim Nash @Kimthebookworm @Herebooks @rararesources #BlogTour #AmazingGrace #2019MustREad
Grace thought she had it all. Living in the beautiful village of Little Ollington, along with head teacher husband Mark and gorgeous son, Archie, she devoted herself to being the perfect mum and the perfect wife, her little family giving her everything she ever wanted.
Until that fateful day when she walked in on Mark kissing his secretary - and her perfect life fell apart.
Now she's a single mum to Archie, trying to find her way in life and keep things together for his sake. Saturday nights consist of a Chinese takeaway eaten in front of the TV clad in greying pyjamas, and she can’t remember the last time she had a kiss from anyone aside from her dog, Becks…
Grace’s life needs a shake up – fast. So when gorgeous gardener Vinnie turns up on her doorstep, his twinkling eyes suggesting that he might be interested in more than just her conifers, she might just have found the answer to her prayers. But as Grace falls deeper for Vinnie, ten-year-old Archie fears that his mum finding love means she’ll never reconcile with the dad he loves.
So when ex-husband Mark begs her for another chance, telling her he’s changed from the man that broke her heart, Grace finds herself with an impossible dilemma. Should she take back Mark and reunite the family that Archie loves? Or risk it all for a new chance of happiness?
A funny, feel good romance about finding your own path and changing your life for the better – readers of Cathy Bramley, Jill Mansell and Josie Silver will love this uplifting read.
Tissues, Chocolate and a clear diary. Is all you need when starting this book.

A jump over to the bright side for my reading choice. I was so thrilled to be able to read an ARC of this book and be a part of the blog tour. Let me just start by saying I am so, so proud of what this lady has done. Kim Nash has followed a dream, written a book, had it published and put smiles on many, many faces with her words. Not just in the story of this book but by being an online friend to many, Myself included. Kim has been an amazing support for me, through troubles and health, always on the other end of a message. Kim I want to take this chance to say I am so, so proud of what you have done, and thank you for being an amazing friend. You have written a book to be mighty proud of. This 'AUTHOR' is one hell of a lady.
Now the book, my views are my own and while this is a jump of genre for me, occasionally I love getting stuck into a feel good book. I started this one while soaking in a lovely bath, Epsom Salts, Radox, a cuppa and a bar of chocolate. Myself and my kindle spent a good hour soaking and getting to know Grace. I loved Grace immediately. One of those characters that from the opening pages you are rooting for. You fall in love with her character right away.
Grace is a single mother bringing up her young son alone and doing the best she can for him. Working as an estate agent allows Grace to be able to spend quality time with her boy as she is able to work around him and his school hours. Her boy is her life. Just the two of them plodding along. There is nothing else needed in Grace's life, is there?
Well her friend clearly thinks there is and to start with that involves a wardrobe make over for Grace. Out with her tracky bottoms and her black clothes, in with the new. With this a new Grace is materialises.
Following Grace on her new journey was amazing. Rooting for her every step of the way, shouting at her when I thought she was making the wrong choices, trying to advise her as she went along. I really connected with this character. I wanted Grace as my friend. The Character is just so lovely and someone that everyone can relate to in some form or other.
I could go on a lot more about this book, but taking away the excitement of the story unfolding isn't something I want to do for the reader. I really can't wait for more from Grace and her family.
This really is one of the best Chic Lit, feel good books I have ever read. This book will be going on my 'Must reads of 2019' without a doubt.
This book was just totally EpicallyAmazeballz. A true feel good, feel good book.
