I will admit to being terrified and excited at the same time.
But for me personally, I have really enjoyed writing this book. I think it’s more to do with my main character Grace Allendale. I see a lot of myself in her – she’s a loner, quite vulnerable and she comes from Stoke, what’s not to like?
As well she is strong, trustworthy and resilient, and a very good friend to have.
She’s also stuck between a rock and a hard place…
A killer is on the loose, attacking people in places they feel most safe: their workplaces, their homes. It’s up to DS Grace Allendale to stop the murders, and prove herself to her new team. All clues lead to local crime family the Steeles, but that’s where things get complicated. Because the Steeles aren’t just any family, they’re Grace’s family. Two brothers and two sisters, connected by the violent father only Grace and her mother escaped.
To catch the killer, Grace will have to choose between her team and her blood. But who do you trust, when both sides are out to get you?
An unforgettable thriller that fans of MARTINA COLE and CARA HUNTER won’t be able to put down.
‘On a thriller cocktail list, Hush Hush would be a Bloody Mary with a perfect twist…’ FIONA BARTON
‘An absolute masterpiece. Twisty, turny and full of surprises!’ ANGELA MARSONS
‘Twists and turns and delivers a satisfying shot of tension’ RACHEL ABBOTT
Also, a special thanks to anyone who has shared any Hush Hush news these past few months. Hush Hush has been a long time in the making – but book 2 in the series is out next April.
Competition time – send me a ‘Melfie’
Okay, some of us are great at selfies, and readers often take photos of their bookshelves – shelfies. So I’m inviting you to send me a ‘Melfie.’
From now until the end of October, I am running a competition for anyone who sends me a photo of HUSH HUSH out there in the wild. As this is my first time in the shops and supermarkets, it would be great to see some photos of it.
I would love to see your selfies with the book but you don’t have to appear on the photo – just take a photo of HUSH HUSH and let me know where it was seen (ie Waterstones, Elgin – Tesco, Stoke.) You can however be as creative as you like if you own a copy.
All you have to do is send the photo to me either via my email or ideally share on social media – using the hashtag #HushHush or #Melfie before midnight on October 31 2018 (GMT). I will announce the winner on 1st November 2018. The prize will be a Kindle Fire (as pictured) and a signed copy of one of my books, whichever you prefer.
I do hope you will join in with the fun.
