"Gritty and gripping - by a star in the making." (Kimberley Chambers)
"A thrilling and gripping novel." (Roberta Kray)
"A cracking good read." (Jessie Keane)
"A captivating read from one of my favourite emerging authors." (Mel Sherratt)
The storyline is OK but takes forever to get anywhere. It is written like a school essay where the writer is trying to reach a minimum number of words. There is so much unnecessary repetition. I have read and really enjoyed all of her other books. On this attempt, it is insulting to Martina Cole, to be compared with her.
Apple Tree Yard
The narrator was ok
The extremely far fetched scenes of gangsters running around London, brandishing guns, accompanied by police officers. Every story has an element of "far fetched" but this story went way beyond anything close to believable.
Such a shame. Other books were great.
