As Sick As Our Secrets
We all keep secrets, don’t we?
Sophie used to be fearful, with a troubled past. Now, she’s a confident young woman helping others turn their lives around –
or is she?
A nasty surprise awaits her after the funeral of a friend and she soon finds out that nothing is as it seems.
Caught up in the dark world of gangsters and villains in the heart of Manchester she attempts to find Cassie’s killer. Following a trail of lies, she gets so wrapped up delving into the lives of others she doesn’t notice her own life falling apart, back into the grips of addiction.
Can romance blossom for Sophie after all the mistakes she has made in the past, or will her only comfort be drink? Things never end up the way she intends.
I’d like to thank Dianne Izzard and Rachel’s Random Resources for inviting me on to this blog tour.
I know your every move was a tantalising, emotional rollercoaster of a read.
This is the first in the Sophie Brown series, I guarantee once you’ve read this first instalment you’ll be hurriedly downloading the remaining two.
This is a book that consumes you, I read it in one day, which for me is a rarity.
I know your every move alternates between the present and the past. You discover Sophie’s troubled past where she is subjected to two abusive relationships. Although this was sometimes hard to digest and many times I wanted to grab her from the pages and to safety, it’s very much a current subject and one that people are slowly being educated about. It’s not easy for someone in an abusive relationship to simply walk away, there are so many emotions involved. You felt this about Sophie, it depicted perfectly the lasting effects it can have.
In the present Sophie has turned her life around and is helping women who have been through similar situations as herself. Then the chilling phone calls begin, Sophie thinks she’s being stalked, but by who?
A thrill of a read that will keep you rooted to the spot!
