‘Hush Hush’ was published in paperback and as an eBook by Avon on the 18th October 2018. I have heard so much about Mel Sherratt’s books and was delighted when I was invited to take part in this blog tour by Sabah Khan. I would like to thank Avon for my review copy.
I will tell you in a minute what my thoughts on ‘Hush Hush’ are. First though, here’s what its about.
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.
Wow! What a book. This was one fast-paced, gripping and gritty read. I literally turned the pages and wondered to myself why I hadn’t read any of Mel Sherratt’s books before. I totally loved the style of writing and the short chapters made this story all the more exciting. This book was so very hard to put down.
When DS Grace Allendale moves back to Stoke-on-Trent and starts a new job, she really doesn’t expect her first case to be quite so close to home. She has to confront her past which is naturally very hard, but she is made of much stronger stuff and isn’t about to give in. As the body count rises, Grace and her team are under pressure to find the killer before any more murders take place.
There were a number of characters in this story, many of them not very nice at all. The Steele family definitely weren’t the sort you would want to mess around with. Having said that, they also went through things in their childhood that they shouldn’t ever of had to. My favourite character was DS Grace Allendale and I really enjoyed getting to know her. Things weren’t made very easy for her because of her connection to the Steele’s. Despite all this she remained fairly level headed. She wanted justice for the people who were murdered and she wouldn’t give up until it was served.
I thought it very sad how things happened. Years of abuse led to desperate measures which in a way was a shame. I was a bit shocked at who the murderer turned out to be.
Mel Sherratt has got herself a new fan and I am already really excited to find out that the next book in the series is coming out next spring. Somehow I get the feeling that we will be hearing from the Steele family again.
‘Hush Hush’ is available to purchase from Amazon UK:-
