The more people you love, the more you have to lose…
Nancy Byrne might be the head of the notorious Byrne crime family, but she’s determined to give her little daughter, Scarlett, the best start possible.
After the death of her beloved father, the notorious gangster Jimmy Byrne, nothing’s stopping Nancy from making money on her own terms – even if she has to combine motherhood with providing for her entire family. But with enemies at their door, she’ll do whatever it takes to protect her loved ones.
But then comes the day when Scarlett goes missing, snatched by a stranger during a trip to the local park, and Nancy’s world is torn apart. Amidst the terror of losing her precious daughter, Nancy is sure of only two things. Someone has taken her daughter … and when she finds them, there’s going to be hell to pay.
Can she find Scarlett – before it’s too late? Or will Nancy’s life of crime come back to haunt her in the worst way possible?
A gritty and hard-hitting thriller packed with shocking twists… Fans of Martina Cole and Kimberly Chambers won’t be able to put this down.
Byrne Family Trilogy (3 Book Series)
Thrilled to bits, is a bit of an understatement to be lucky enough to get an ARC of this book. I have loved this series of books and here we are at book 3.
What a flipping read it was. I loved every single page, every chapter made you want to read on, just one more, just one more. If this book had been 800 pages long I would have still wanted more.
Casey Kelleher certainly knows how to write a book that gets you hooked, I don't know how but each and every book beats the last one. when finishing the last book you just don't believe that it can ever be topped but Casey has managed that, TEN FOLD.
I'm more than a little impressed with these books.
Back with the Byrne family, It's been great following this family through life's struggles and It's great to see how Nancy has grown up and really come into herself. Now the head of the Byrne empire, Nancy takes nonsense from no one.
Nancy is now also trying to be a good mother to her baby girl. Still keeping the business going and juggling motherhood, Nancy is besides herself when the past catches up and her beautiful daughter Scarlett is snatched from the park.
One thing is for sure Nancy will go to the ends of the earth to get her little girl back, but is it to late?
There has to come a time in life that if you take things from others, that one day it will be payback.
An outstanding read, if you have read any other book by this author and enjoyed it, then let me tell you, this is the best book yet.
What more is there to say, I mean shall I waffle on about it or shall I just say, go buy it, go treat yourself. If you haven't read any of these books then you'd be thrilled to know that all 3 books are available and less than £6. I mean come on we spend that on tatt some days. Spend it on something that will give you hours of entertainment. These books will certainly do that. Imagine if your going away anytime soon, you could just rest, relax and get lost in the world of the Byrne family.
I'm speechless as to how much I enjoyed everything there was about this book. Best one yet!

The struggles of war will build the strongest of friendships…
1940, Liverpool: Best friends Alice Turner and Millie Markham work for the war effort at Rootes munitions factory, making shell caps and Halifax bombers. Alice’s sweetheart Terry is home from the front for a brief period of leave, and the women are excitedly planning a whirlwind wedding.
But the honeymoon is soon over, and the ever-present air raid sirens quickly bring Alice back down to earth. When a terrible explosion at the factory leads to a tragic death, and a loved one is announced missing in action, it’s only their friendship and the support of the other factory girls which help to keep Alice and Millie’s spirits up.
As the war stretches on with no sign of an ending, can Alice and Millie help one another make it through – and find happiness even in the darkest of times?
The Factory Girls of Lark Lane is a heart-wrenching family saga about women in World War 2, the strength of friendship, and hope. If you’re a fan of Nadine Dorries, Diney Costeloe and Kitty Neale, you’ll love Pam Howes!
I have said this before, this is not the usual genre I normally read, but after reading Pam's Liverpool girls books, I couldn't wait to read this one.
Pam has a unique way of writing these war time stories. It's almost as if you could have actually been there when reading them. You really are taken into the story and the surroundings, living the lives of the characters through the words.
Heart warming and heart breaking the lives of families living through WWII.
1940's in Liverpool where families are saying goodbye to their loved ones, families torn apart by war, families that stick together through thick and thin.
Alice and Terry are getting married and while everyone loves a good wedding it can be a difficult thing to do during the war. Getting married and saying goodbye to your now husband the day after must truly be heart breaking. This is what happened to this young couple. Life for Alice as a married woman doesn't start off the way we all imagine a marriage should. With families and friendship Alice has to get on with life, while here husband is away fighting in a war. It's a time when everyone comes together when everyone is going through the same things. It's amazing when you look back just how people managed to get through this time of their lives.
It's safe to say Pam has worked a blinder with this book, have some tissues at the ready and get yourself stuck in. Get lost in those pages just like I did, get taken to another time what could almost feel like another world. This book is written beautifully and is really difficult to put down once you start it.
The Factory Girls of Lark Lane is a first class read and I certainly can't wait for more from this author.
ABOUT PAM HOWES
Pam is a retired interior designer, mum to three daughters, grandma to seven assorted grandchildren and roadie to her musician partner.
The inspiration for Pam’s first novel came from her teenage years, working in a record store, and hanging around with musicians who frequented the business. The first novel evolved into a series about a fictional band The Raiders. She is a fan of sixties music and it’s this love that compelled her to begin writing.

An absolutely gripping mystery thriller with a jaw-dropping twist. This book will hook you from page one and keep you reading ‘just one more chapter’ late into the night.
On a damp October day, a body is found in an abandoned hospital, too burnt to be identified, but Detective Alex King knows that every victim is someone’s daughter or son.
Pushing aside her own troubles, Alex puts everything into finding the killer, but when someone else is found dead, she begins to suspect that the body in the hospital was just the first of many.
Just as Alex uncovers a heartbreaking link between the victims, she finds her own safety under threat. Is this a figure from her past hell-bent on revenge, or could the murderer be even nearer than she thinks?
Alex is running out of time. Can she catch the killer before they take another life, or will they get to her first?
A completely unputdownable detective thriller that will keep you up all night. Readers of Robert Bryndza, Karin Slaughter and Angela Marsons will love this.
Nobody’s Child by Victoria Jenkins is book 3 in the Detectives King & Lane. This is a series I've really enjoyed so far. I have just read book 1, 2 and 3 back to back. It was great doing so as I didn't have to wait for the next one each time, until I finished this beauty and now I have the 'I WANT THE NEXT BOOK syndrome.
This one really does have you on the edge of your seat. It's one of those books you can't put down.
Some fantastic twists and a brilliant story line. If you haven't read any of these books then I really do suggest you start now, and do what I've just done and read them back to back.
When a body is found in a burnt out former hospital it's down to Alex and Chloe to get working on the case, who is it, what was he/she doing there. Why did the fire start or more so who started the fire? It's no time at all that the case escalates and Alex and her team really do have their work cut out.
Alex is also battling her own issues, but can't let it stop her finding who this killer is. As always Alex throws her all into her case.
I've enjoyed getting to know Alex and Chloe over these 3 books, I do however feel there is still a lot we don't know about them and I really am looking forward to reading more and learning more about them as this series progresses. I can see this becoming one hell of damn good series, I feel there will be an awful lot of readers out there eagerly waiting for each instalment.
This really is a detective thriller that gets you hooked and keeps you their right up to the end.
Easily the best one yet. LOVED IT!
About the Author
Victoria Jenkins lives with her husband and daughter in South Wales, where her series of crime novels featuring Detectives King and Lane is based. Her debut novel The Girls in the Water is an Amazon UK top 30 bestseller, and top 5 bestseller in the Amazon US chart.

The First One to Die: (Detectives King and Lane Book 2)by Victoria Jenkins @Bookouture @vicwritescrime #Review
She tried to break her fall, twisting desperately, but there was nothing to catch hold of, nothing with which she could stop herself. Her single scream cut through the night air.
One hot summer night, a young woman falls from a rooftop to her death. Detective Alex King is called to the quiet terraced street.
The victim, Keira North, was twenty, happy and carefree. It seems like an accident, but there’s broken glass on the carpet, and witnesses overheard an argument. Could someone have wanted her dead?
Keira’s friends don’t seem as helpful as Alex would expect and the post-mortem reveals that Keira was hiding a secret: she was five months pregnant. Alex’s team soon finds that all of Keira's closest friends have secrets that someone might kill to keep.
As Alex realises Keira might be just the first victim on a list, her leads take her a bit too close to home. With her own demons to fight, can Alex catch the killer, before someone else dies?
The First One to Die is a heart-stopping and shocking detective thriller that will have you gripped until the very last page. Perfect for fans of Patricia Gibney, Angela Marsons, and Val McDermid.
Well well, what a jolly good series this is turning into. I recently read book 1 and enjoyed it so I was really looking forward to getting stuck into this one, book 2 of the series. Sometimes being behind in a series has it's advantages. As soon as I finished this one, I went right onto book 3.
I found in this book we got to know a lot more of Alex and Chloe, i'm loving the characters they are turning into and I fell they work really well together. I'm enjoying as I always do with book series getting to know the individual characters.
In this book Alex is called out to what looks like a possible suicide or an accident of a young girl. It soon becomes clear to Alex that this is not an accident and that Keira North did not just fall to her death.
This book has some great twists and turns, a great storyline and it certainly keeps you wanting to read on, so much so that as soon as i finished it, I went right onto book 3. Lot's of secrets revealed and trouble caused. Fantastic read.
Thrilled to be taking part in the Blog Tour for a series I've grown to love.
They had not been forgiven. And they would never be forgotten ….
This is a series I have thoroughly been enjoying. I was excited at the way the story started as I had some questions still from the previous book, and I was eager to get started to find out what was happening.
It's a must read series, and my personal opinion is that the books are read in order.
Carol has done a superb job with this one, wow what a read! It's safe to say I enjoyed it, and I enjoyed it A LOT!
We still have the story of Davies running through the background of this book, and I really thought I was going to get my answers in this book, I think Carol is being a bit of a tease now, as I have to wait for the next book. It's a wait I don't want, I want answers and I want them now. lol
Detective Robyn Carter is faced with a new case, the body of a young man has been found in a farmers field. The team are soon on the case, trying to find any background on this young man and what could have been the reasons for his killing.
Before long another body is found. Robyn and her team are working like hell to find if there is a link here. It really has you thinking if there is a link and what It could be. There is clearly a cold hearted killer out there, the reasons for the killing I just couldn't work out.
I tell you what though, as I neared the ending of the book, it's safe to say I would have never guessed, and the reasonings behind things were awesome. Carol Wyer has written this book just brilliantly.
Twisty and edge of you seat reading here, and any crime thriller fan will love this one, I'm totally blown away with it. Certainly the best one yet.

Can I just start with, I was soooooo excited when I knew this book was coming out.
An absolutely hilarious, laugh-‘til-you-cry, romantic comedy about how life never quite goes to plan…
Faye Dobson is in crisis. You wouldn’t know it, because of the big fat smile on her face, but inside, she’s one step away from nuclear meltdown. And she shouldn’t be. Dan ?? is the man of her dreams. Her really quite energetic dreams, that frequently come true. Sometimes twice in one night. And he’s just asked her to marry him.
But Faye’s been down the marriage road before and it ended up with her having Ryan Gosling fantasies while her ex-husband obsessed about the plumbing. The actual plumbing. Faye and Dan have been living their lives to the fullest, travelling around the world, having sex under the stars... They haven’t argued about unrolling socks before putting them in the laundry.
Besides, even if she wanted to say yes, how could she move to the other side of the world? Because marrying Dan would mean living in Australia. Beautiful, warm and a gazillion miles from Faye’s daughter, Emma, a single mum with her own crazy little girl who both need Faye every single day. Leaving them – even for someone who makes her laugh as much as Dan – simply isn’t an option.
Dan is offering Faye everything she ever wanted. So why does she feel like she’s about to lose it all?
Love, Lies and Wedding Cake
OHHH my dayzzz, was I happy to get my mitts on this book. I need to start with, if you haven't read any of Sue Watsons books, then where the hell have you been.
Her books, are awesomely funny, with amazing storylines. Sue Watson has a knack of writing books that make you feel good, once you've read some of Sue's books you'd understand what I mean when I say, just looking at the covers makes you smile. Sitting down with these books, you feel like a big fluffy duvet has been wrapped around you. (oh wait it has)
Hot Chocolate, a slice of cake, turn the phone off, lock the door. Once you start, there really is no stopping you.
The books are adictive, easy to read, and fun. I have to admit you do get some funny looks if your out in public while reading these, with a stupid grin on your face, and laughing out loud.
Anyway, back to this book. Love, Lies and Wedding Cake. The book has such a real life feel to it. You can actually picture yourself in the places described, doing the thing that the characters are doing, it really does feel like real life. It's certainly a welcome escape from my real life. lol I absolutely adored this book. There is a great mix of characters, some of them are first class. I loved Faye, I love the banter she had in the salon with Mandy and how her 4 year old grandaughter Rosie picked up on everything she shouldn't pick up on. Some of the scenes in this book had me helpless.
Faye and Dan are in love, doing the things that make both of them happy. Living life to the full. That is until Dan pops the question. It's not that Faye is against marriage, it's more that with that marriage comes the reality that for it to happen, Faye would have to move to the other side of the world. Dan wants her to move to Australia with him.
Faye can't do that, she has a course she's finishing, a job, a daughter and a granddaughter that need her. How on earth could she move to the other side of the world. It's just not going to happen.
There is so so much I want to say about this book, and I know nothing I write is ever going to do the book any justice. It's a first class, funny, in parts hilarious read. Yet it also carries an element of ' if you want it, go get it' Stop letting things get in your way. Stop making obstacles for yourself.
If you are going away this year, or just plan on sitting in your garden or even sitting in the park in your lunch break, this is the book you need with you.

Dying Truth: A completely gripping crime thriller (Detective Kim Stone Crime Thriller Series Book 8)
How far would you go to protect your darkest secrets?
When teenager Sadie Winter jumps from the roof of her school, her death is ruled as suicide – a final devastating act from a troubled girl. But then the broken body of a young boy is discovered at the same school and it’s clear to Detective Kim Stone that these deaths are not tragic accidents.
As Kim and her team begin to unravel a dark web of secrets, one of the teachers could hold the key to the truth. Yet just as she is about to break her silence, she is found dead.
With more children’s lives at risk, Kim has to consider the unthinkable - whether a fellow pupil could be responsible for the murders. Investigating the psychology of children that kill brings the detective into contact with her former adversary, Dr Alex Thorne – the sociopath who has made it her life’s work to destroy Kim.
Desperate to catch the killer, Kim finds a link between the recent murders and an initiation prank that happened at the school decades earlier. But saving these innocent lives comes at a cost – and one of Kim’s own might pay the ultimate price.
The utterly addictive new crime thriller from the Number One bestselling author – you will be gripped until the final shocking twist.
I can just see most reviews for this book will be starting with something along the line of 'Wow, Where do I start' only worded better.
I truly don't know what to say, How can you better your last 7 books when those 7 were fantastic reads. I don't just mean improve the next one a little bit. Somehow Angela Marsons manages smash the last brillientness of the book and better it ten fold. Angela I don't know how the hell you do it, but please, keep on doing it.
The tension, the atmosphere, the build up, everything about this book was just Spot on. I feel like I've been on one hell of a ride with this story. The nail biting is that intense, these books should come with a free manicure.
So Dying Truth. We are off again with some familiar faces, character we have been getting to know over 8 books. Characters that have really grown and feel as though they have become real friends.
I have to start with Kim Stone. Now I don't know what it is about this character but I love reading about her. The familiarity while reading is almost like it's someone you personally know.
The book kicks off with Stone and Bryant attending an emergency at a school, where 13 year old Sadie Winter has jumped off the roof of her school. How could such a young girl have such problems that she feels the only answer is to kill herself? Everything seems to point to suicide. Only Detective Inspector Kim Stone, has other thoughts and once she gets something in her head, there is no changing her mind. It's not long after that another child is found dead. Kim Stone is certain that these are not suicide attempts or just accidents, Kim know's in her mind that these deaths are connected.
I really did look forward to each time I got the chance to pick up this book. A first class read that I feel will be difficult to top. Yet I have no doubt it will be topped. It's going to be damn interesting to see where Angela Marsons takes this series. This is easiest the best book of the series, but i'm sure I keep saying that each time a new one comes out.
This has certainly gone onto my 2018 MUST READ list.
Personally I feel these books should be read in order. I think you would get the best reading experience by doing so.
About the author:
Angela Marsons is the author of the International Bestselling DI Kim Stone series and her books have sold more than 2 million in 2 years.
She lives in the Black Country with her partner, their cheeky Golden Retriever and a swearing parrot.
She first discovered her love of writing at Junior School when actual lessons came second to watching other people and quietly making up her own stories about them. Her report card invariably read "Angela would do well if she minded her own business as well as she minds other people's".
After years of writing relationship based stories (The Forgotten Woman and Dear Mother) Angela turned to Crime, fictionally speaking of course, and developed a character that refused to go away.
She is signed to Bookouture.com for a total of 16 books in the Kim Stone series and her books have been translated into more than 27 languages.
Her last three books - Blood Lines, Dead Souls and Broken Bones - reached the #1 spot on Amazon on pre-orders alone.
Check out the part I have underlined. YES! 16 books, that means we are half way, how exciting to know there is going to be lots more #KimStone
I've said it many times, I don't know where Angie gets her ideas from, but I certainly hope they keep coming.
Previously Published as The Middle Child
Three sisters. Three childhoods ruined. One chance to heal the scars of the past.
After their death of their cruel and abusive mother, estranged sisters Alex, Catherine and Beth reunite once again.
Alex, the youngest, is a bitter, unhappy woman who refuses to face the horrors of her childhood. Finding solace in a bottle, her life is spiralling dangerously out of control.
Eldest child, Catherine, has strived for success, despite her difficult upbringing. But behind the carefully constructed façade lies a secret that could shatter her world forever.
Beth, the middle child, bore the greatest burden. But having blocked out the cruelty they suffered, she remained with their mother until her death. Now she must confront the devastating reality of the past.
Brought together as strangers, the sisters embark on a painful journey to heal themselves and each other. Can they finally put their terrible childhoods to rest and start over?
I'm currently catching up on some of my older books, that for one reason or another seem to have gotten lost on my kindle.
I have to admit i read this book purely because of who the author was, I didn't know what to expect and I went in with my mind open to anything.
I knew I wouldn't be disappointed.
An amazing story of 3 sisters and their lives growing up. After the death of their mother, the estranged sisters have a chance to rebuild their relationships with each other.
Alex, Catherine and Beth. 3 totally different women have a chance to put the past behind them and bond as sisters once more. Sometimes things can't be forgotten and things that happened in childhood can rule your life as an adult.
Forced to face the truths of their upbringing, this story is an emotional read. It covers the subject of family abuse brilliantly. It's superbly written. It left me feeling like i'd really been on and emotions journey with these women.
I'm a huge fan of this author and this book show's just how good a writer she is. It's beautifully written. Please be warned you may need a box of tissues. Once started this is a very difficult book to put down.
Runaway Girl by Emma Tallon. @EmmaEsj #Runaway @Bookouture #Review by @ilovereadinguk #Blogtour ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
You have to fight for the ones you love.
Anna Davis has spent years terrified of her sadistic gangster boyfriend. Right up until she runs away in the dead of night, she’s frightened he will kill her. And she knows he still will, if he ever finds her…
As Anna starts her new life, she meets two strangers who will change her fortunes forever. Tanya Smith is a gorgeous East London stripper with a big heart. Anna loves Tanya’s attitude to life and the pair quickly become inseparable and business partners. And East End baron Freddie Tyler is everything Anna’s ex-boyfriend was not – he’s kind, caring and would do anything to make Anna happy.
But are they both telling Anna the truth about who they really are?
Just as Anna begins to see a brighter future for herself, her past comes back to haunt her. She could be about to lose everything – even her life. But she’s a different person now. She’s got something to live for and she’s not going to give up without a fight.
If you love Martina Cole, Kimberley Chambers, Casey Kelleher and Jessie Keane, you’ll love Runaway Girl. This fast-paced, gripping thriller will have you reading well after dark.
This book was previously published as Life Game.
I was looking forward to reading this, I had the original book, Life Game on my kindle, yet when I went to find it, it had disappeared into kindle heaven. But not to worry this is the re edited, revamped edition.
This was my Easter treat, sit down, start a new book and chill. Well sit and chill in between keeping a husband and an 8 year old occupied.
I had high hopes for this book, and was really looking forward to it. It wasn't long before I was engrossed in the pages.
Meeting Anna, she has escaped from an evil man of a boyfriend. Controlling and violent. She will forever be looking over her shoulder as she knows she will never truly be rid of him.
Tanya and Anna become friends after a chance meeting. Friends that hopefully can go on and help and trust each other.
This book has it all, it keeps you going, it keeps you wanting more. I did however at times feel it was a little tame, like it could have been vamped up a notch here and there. That said it was still a damn good read, and I will certainly be watching out for more from this author, I think Emma Tallon is going to be a name to watch out for.
Emma Tallon is a British, gritty crime writer, adventurer, Londoner and mother to a young son. Starting her career a few years ago as a ghostwriter, Emma crafted some of the most adventurous, edgy and heart-wrenching stories you can find on the shelves today.
In March 2017 Emma stepped out of the literary shadows and self-published her first book, Life Game. The book was an instant success, the results far exceeding anything she had expected. As news of Life Games popularity spread, she joined forces with W.F.Howes and the audiobook was launched in October 2017.
In December 2017, Emma signed a three book deal with publishers Bookouture. This included Life Game which was changed, re-edited and now re-released as Runaway Girl.
Drawing inspiration for her books from a mixture of her own observations and an active imagination, the characters Emma paints are colourful and larger than life. Her story lines are an interesting recipe of deep emotion and violent grit, that keep her readers engrossed.
With two more books in the works for this series already, Emma has many more stories planned out for the future.

The Girl With No Past: A gripping psychological thriller
Twenty years running from your past. Today it catches up.
A gripping psychological thriller for fans of Gone Girl and The Girl on the Train.
Leah Mills lives a life of a fugitive – kept on the run by one terrible day from her past. It is a lonely life, without a social life or friends until – longing for a connection – she meets Julian. For the first time she dares to believe she can live a normal life.
Then, on the twentieth anniversary of that day, she receives a card. Someone knows the truth about what happened. Someone who won’t stop until they’ve destroyed the life Leah has created.
But is Leah all she seems? Or does she deserve everything she gets?
Everyone has secrets. But some are deadly.
I seemed to have had this book on my kindle forever, and it just started to shout out at me, READ ME.... I was actually convinced i'd read it. so it just kept getting passed by. Bad Me!
I really wasn't sure at first when I started it what I thought, and once over I felt it wasn't for me, but then I decided to carry on with it. And I'm glad I did.
Once you get into the story it does become addictive, in the sense that you can only find out what the SECRET is by reading the story, and the more you read the more you want to know.
Leah Mills is hiding from something or someone, running from the past. something has happened in her life that she is trying to forget. She is trying to live what she thinks is a normal life. She seems quite a lonely person, doesn't have any friends and certainly is trying to stay under the radar for some reason.
Until she learns that someone know's where she is, someone know's what she is doing, where and when and this is clearly someone from her past.
This really unnerves her, and trying her best to make friends she is a little put out by it.
Through the book we shoot back to Leah and friends at school and Leah and no friends in the present day. She is doing her best to find friendship, and right through the book you start to question, who is real, who can be trusted you do start to suspect everyone and knowing who to trust is hard.
This is one of those books that you need to keep reading, and reading and reading, because it's the only way you are going to find out what the secret is. What exactly has happened in Leah's past.
It is a very well put together and very well written story. I look forward to reading more from this author and catching up with other titles.
