I’ve not ready anything by this author so this is a great introduction to her. 

Sloane is running for her life. Her husband did the unthinkable and broke the code of silence. Now Sloane must disappear before she is killed. She gets more than she bargained for when she went to Bettino a guy she knew years ago. 

This is a really quick read and an enjoyable one. I’m looking forward to reading more from this author. Can’t wait to read more of this story.

#NewRelease #Debut #Broken 
#BookSmackedPromo #EllieMesse

From Ellie Messe comes her debut novel Broken. 


Mama didn’t come home.
Daddy liked to hit.
Brothers followed suit.

So I ran.

I ran from that life.
I ran from myself.
I ran into him.

I have no experience with the game board we’re playing on, and that makes this a lethal game. One wrong move and my heart could land in the fire he’s created inside me. Worse, it could lead my past to his doorstep and it won’t just be my blood that taints this floor.  

I should run.  I need to run.

My father is the devil in a flesh suit, he won’t be happy until he paints this town red for my betrayal.

I should run. I need to run.

Because despite my feelings for Parker Hayes, the devil is coming and he wants what’s his.

About the Author

I'm a fun loving book dragon who has the ability to make sailors blush with colorful language and obscene gestures. I love reading, mostly romance, young adult and new age. I'm a part of a BANGerangin' book club that is guaranteed to be better than yours. I like to spend my days wondering around department stores while reading erotica out loud, scaring the piss out of people, and playing "The floor is lava". (Adulting is lame.)

A debut author. Wow. The author hit the ball outta the park with this one. Pure perfection. 

Haley’s such a brilliant character. She’s so strong and courageous. My heart broke for her. Parker is awesome. I want my own Parker. Along with the main characters we have some wonderful secondary characters that added so much more to the story. 

This book sucked me in from start to finish. It’s a big read which I was super happy about. I loved how it pulled on so many of my emotions. Great praise to the author for a wonderful debut novel. I’m looking forward to reading more from this author.

Extract for Know Me Now for Cheeky Pee Reads

With its grey stone foundations and grey rendering around stained PVC windows, Duncaid’s Police Station wasn’t a building to lift the spirits. Grace had passed it plenty of times on her way to work, but had never had cause to step inside. Until today, when Murdoch had insisted upon her ‘dropping by’. He had made it clear that he expected her to come to him, and not him to her.
Grace waited for him in reception, her eyes taking in the posters on the wall. End Wildlife Crime. Stop poaching. Another showed an eagle in full flight. Operation April, Eagle Watch. There were the usual posters on drugs and alcohol but it certainly made a difference having dramatic pictures of wildlife on the walls.
A door banged behind her. ‘Dr Reavey.’
She turned to see Constable Murdoch. His face was stony. ‘Follow me, if you would.’
He led the way into an interview room. Small, blue, no windows. A two-way mirror was set in the wall over a bolted-down table and two chairs. It was where the police interviewed suspects and Grace had no doubt Murdoch had brought her in here to unsettle her. Don’t give him anything. Pretend this is completely normal. Smile.
Murdoch closed the door firmly. Although he didn’t lock it, it felt as though he had. It was like being in a cell. With as much aplomb as she could muster, Grace took a seat. Folded her hands on her lap. Murdoch sat opposite.
‘Well,’ he said.
Grace waited.
‘It appears Connor Baird was murdered.’
He glowered at her. She thought of saying, apparently so, but there seemed little point since he’d now raised a forefinger and was stabbing it her.
‘This does not mean you can demand a fucking autopsy at the drop of a hat in the future. This does not mean you can tell us, the polis, how to do our jobs and it does not mean you’re fucking God around here.’
His face had turned puce, the veins on his nose standing out. She hoped he wasn’t going to have a heart attack. Her de-fib was in the car and since the tiny car park at the back of the police station had been full, she’d been forced to park down the street and it would take her at least two minutes to fetch it.
‘Do you hear me?’ he added furiously.
‘I hear you,’ she said mildly. She decided not to tell him she’d just requested another autopsy, this one on a sixty-six-year old woman out of Bridgeorth who’d died the day before yesterday. Two weeks ago Iona Ainsley had come to her with an infected finger. Grace had put her on antibiotics and things had seemed to improve but then, to Grace’s horror, the infection suddenly deepened and Iona’s health dropped into a severe decline. Despite having been blue-lighted to hospital, Iona had died that afternoon.
‘Right.’ He nodded several times. ‘OK then.’ He brought out his pocketbook and a pen. ‘I need to ask you some questions now.’
More nodding. ‘OK,’ he echoed on an exhale. To her relief, his colour began to subside. No de-fib required, thank God.

The Secret Child by Kerry Fisher - out on 29th November

UK πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§

You can run from your past, but it will always catch up with you…

Susie was forced to do something she will always regret: giving her baby son up for adoption. Everything that led to this child, this choice, had to be buried and forgotten.

Her secret echoes down through the years, tainting everything it touches. Her husband wonders why his wife is so distant. Her daughters can’t understand their changeable mother. 

Susie knows her past is pushing her family apart, and the guilt is eating her up, but she can’t escape the longing for her lost son. No-one but Susie knows the whole story, and when her daughters discover a piece of the puzzle, she must face the question she has struggled with for most of her life:

Would the truth bring them back together, or break them?

From the bestselling author of The Silent Wife, The Secret Child is a heartbreaking and unputdownable novel about family secrets and lies. Perfect for fans of Liane Moriarty, Jojo Moyes and Diane Chamberlain.

About the author: 

Born in Peterborough, Kerry Fisher studied French and Italian at Bath University, followed by several years working as an English teacher in Corsica and Spain before topping the dizzying heights of holiday rep and grape picker in Tuscany. She eventually succumbed to 'getting a proper job' and returned to England to study Periodical Journalism at City University. After two years working in the features department at Essentials magazine in London, love carried her off to the wilds of the West Pennine moors near Bolton. She now lives in Surrey with her husband (of whisking off to Bolton fame), two teenagers and a very naughty lab/schnauzer called Poppy. Kerry can often be seen trailing across the Surrey Hills whistling and waving pieces of chicken while the dog practises her 'talk to the tail'. In her third book, After The Lie, Kerry shamelessly exploits every embarrassing dog misdemeanour to create her fictional hound, Mabel.

Kerry has spent half her life talking about writing a novel, then several years at Candis magazine reviewing other people's but it wasn't until she took some online courses with the UCLA (University of California) that the dream started to morph into reality, culminating in the publishing of The Class Ceiling. The Avon imprint of HarperCollins picked it up and retitled it The School Gate Survival Guide, published summer 2014. Her second book, The Island Escape, came out in May 2015. It won first prize at the York Festival of Writing for the opening line: 'I was wearing the wrong bra for sitting in a police cell'. Her latest book, After The Lie, the story of how small lies become more toxic as they pass down the generations, is out on 29 April 2016.

Best advice ever received: 'This is fiction, we can skip the boring bits.' Lynn Hightower, UCLA Writers' Program.

The evocative autobiography of the author Lena Kennedy who was sixty-four before her first novel, `Maggie` was accepted for publication.  This book examines the inspiration for her novels, such as the bestsellers Eve`s Apples and Lily My Lovely  and describes the long search for a publisher, as well as  her joy at finding success.

In this, story of her life as a writer, Lena Kennedy looks back on the formative influences that shaped her career, such as the idyllic summers spent at her family`s holiday home in Kent, where among the `shackdwellers` of the woods and the simple beauty of the countryside she began to realise her growing need to express her feeling through writing.  But the realisation of the need to write is only the beginning, as Lena soon acknowledged when her career took its first faltering steps, and the setback late in life that nearly robbed her of many year``s work. The Last of the Shackdwellers is told in her inimitable style, sheds much light on the life of this much-loved writer.  Lena Kennedy died in August l986.
