*BLOG TOUR* What She Did – Alex Kane ★★★★

Blurb; She’s your best friend. And your worst enemy…

Beth is a woman running from her demons. Moving to Glasgow to escape the tragedy that ended with the death of her ex-boyfriend, she’s trying to build a new life, to tentatively find new love. But her past is following her, and try as she might, she can’t shake the feeling that someone is watching her every move.

Victoria is unhappily married to Greg. On their wedding day he told her he would love her until they grew old, but now he’s becoming secretive, staying out for ‘business meetings’ and growing distant from his wife. After finding incriminating texts on his phone, Victoria contacts an old friend for support, the one person in her life that has never let her down yet.

Lydia knows she is the only one that can help Victoria. Jumping straight back into their friendship, despite the four-year absence from Victoria’s life, she vows to stop at nothing to help her get revenge. Good friends will do anything for each other, right?

But Lydia has made a new friend in Beth, and now, none of them are safe…

Three women. Three stories. One devastating secret.

My Review; As the blurb says above this story focuses on three women. Beth, Victoria and Lydia all different ladies, different lives… Or are they? All have had their fair share or trouble with men.

The story flicks between the past and the present for each character throughout but this is clearly stated at the start of each chapter so there is no confusion. With the ladies come the men ofcourse… Greg and Lawrence. Now I must say Lawrences character what a horrible excuse for a man, one of those characters that get under your skin and is controlling. I felt sorry for Beth but she is surrounded by some brilliant and supportive friends.

I was more drawn to Beths story personally over Victorias. What she did is an eye opening read and brilliantly written. With this story I learnt that everything links. A brilliant read, contains short chapters which I prefer and is a page turner of a read. A well deserved four stars. Highly recommend. I enjoyed reading this one.

*BLOG TOUR* No Looking Back – Alex Kane ★★★★

Blurb; He’ll find you… unless you find him first.

Kat Denton is a woman running away from her past. For the past sixteen years, her life has been a living hell as Jimmy, the man she fell in love with as a teenager, becomes ever more cruel and abusive. Following the fire that killed her parents, leaving her an orphan when she was just a teenager, Kat is utterly alone and can’t see a way out.

Until the day she finds out that she’s pregnant. Vowing to protect her child from Jimmy’s violence, Kat decides to fight for survival – for her and her unborn baby.

Fleeing the traveller camp that has been her lifelong home isn’t easy. But along with her sister in law, Kat escapes with just the clothes on her back and the one photograph she has of her parents.

Kat, along with her baby girl Lucia, starts to build a better life. But when she looks into what really happened in her parents’ death Kat uncovers dark secrets – including a revelation that will lead Kat back to the place she had been so desperate to run away from. Is she strong enough to uncover the truth and save everything that she loves most, or will Jimmy Denton have his revenge?

My Review; This story was previously published under the title of Chasing The Traveller.

I need to start with the beginning of this book as it does draw the reader in but it is dark, twisted and contains heavy domestic violence and a scene of what I would describe as rape which is not to some readers tastes due to personal circumstances. So just a little warning.

I felt so sorry for Kat from the beginning noone should have to go through what she has been through, especially with noone to turn to. I was beside her the whole way. She is a strong, determined character even if at times she doesn’t seem it.

A brilliantly written story, fast paced and a page turner of a read. Hard to put down. Would have loved to devour this in one go. A well deserved four stars from me. Highly recommend. Gripping, thrilling and heart pumping.
