My Review of Somewhere To Hide (The Estate Series Book 1) by Mel Sherratt

What They Say:

Cath Mason has learned to be tough. The things she’s seen growing up on the Mitchell Estate, she’s had to be. Yet, even broken and beaten by life at times, she’s still the first person a woman in need of help seeks out.

At Cath’s house, there is safety in numbers as well as a place to hide from domestic abuse. No matter what trouble comes to her door, she won’t turn anyone away – because she knows what it’s like to live with secrets.

But now a problem from her past has come back to haunt her, and she’s the one faced with a dilemma. What should she do first – help or be helped – despite being unsure she’ll ever be ready to confront her own demons?

With danger around every corner, can Cath protect herself as well as the women whose safety is her paramount concern? Or has the potential for revenge already gone a step too far?

SOMEWHERE TO HIDE is emotional and brutal, gripping and terrifying, psychological suspense. It is the first book in The Estate Series.

What I Say:

Earlier this year, I read and reviewed Watching Over You by Mel Sherratt. It was purely out of curiosity as this isn't my usual type of book. I was blown away! It was creepy, dark and twisted but still emotional with characters that stayed with me.

Mel then kindly offered to send me The Estate Series for review and I jumped at the chance. Sadly, I had issues getting the books onto my phone to read but have finally sorted it. I sped through Somewhere To Hide, desperate to know what was going to happen!

I read 60% of the book in one sitting and was left with the biggest book hangover! I couldn't stop turning the pages, I couldn't get to the end fast enough! I have never had that feeling before and I was left shaking when I finished.

Cath is a wonderfully warm, kind, sensitive woman who has faced her share of heartache and trouble in her life, yet she still opens her heart and her home to those who need her most. Through her selflessness, we meet Jess, Becky, Cheryl, Liz and Chloe. Jess and Becks are young girls who are struggling in the world that surrounds them on the Estate and find themselves getting wrapped up in the wrong circles. Becky made me cry. She is so young and troubled and broken. I just wanted to hug her and make it all better for the poor girl. But she's tough and she shows it. All of the women are great, but Becky was the one I felt most for, she was the reason I needed to know the ending.

The "baddies" in this book are so twisted and dark. Nothing is as it seems, yet it all makes sense. There are some really tense, creepy, spine tingling scenes in this brilliant book. The kind that, if you were watching a film, you'd be hiding behind a cushion, peaking with one eye... Argh, WHY ISN'T THIS A FILM YET??????!!!!!

Anyway, BRAVO Mel! This is a bloody brilliant book and I can't wait to read the rest of the series! You are definitely one to watch for in the future. You have absolutely got huge talent and a voice that needs to be heard!! A huge 10/10

Blog Tour Stop with Extract - When Polly Met Olly by Zoe May

Welcome to my stop on the Blog Tour for  When Polly Met Olly by Zoe May! I have an exclusive extract for you today!


What They Say:
Polly and Olly were never supposed to meet…
Polly might spend her days searching for eligible matches for her elite list of clients at her New York dating agency, but her own love life is starting to go up in smoke. Even worse, she can’t stop thinking about the very person she’s meant to be setting her latest client up with… surely it can’t get any worse! But then Polly bumps into oh-so-handsome Olly, who heads up a rival agency, and realizes that perhaps all really is fair in love and dating war…
Chapter One
Surely, I’m not qualified to be a matchmaker?!
You’d think getting a job at a dating agency might actually require you to have found love, or at least be good at dating, but apparently not. I’ve been single for three years and I haven’t had a date for six months, yet I’m pretty sure I’m nailing this interview. ‘So, what kind of message would you send Eri…
