A Big Thank you to Shalini at Digital Reads Blog Tours

I also would like to thank the author for giving me this opprtunity. I am sorry for my tardiness with this review. My family has to out of nowhere make hurricane preparations! I appreciate this opportunity ladies and all views are my own.


Synopsis (1)

Synopsis

Do you owe your family your life? When her beloved sister Glory dies in a car crash, Grace McBride’s carefully considered life spirals out of control. She discovers Glory had been sucked into illegal activities at odds with her seemingly charmed existence. What’s worse: Grace finds herself an unwitting accomplice and forced to take over the shady dealings.

Determined to keep her fingers clean and redeem her sister’s reputation, Grace plots to extricate herself—and those Glory held dear—from the clutches of Glasgow’s criminal underworld. But her moral certitude is challenged when familial pressure mounts and Glory’s past intentions remain unclear. Grace grows convinced Glory’s death was no accident, even if no-one will listen.

Seeking justice, she finds betrayal.

Book Reviews by Dani

I was surprised how much of a experience this novel was!😀 Lately I have been reading a lot of books that are more cozy related but this was a great welcomed experience. Book ReviewI would put this more as a family drama or adult fiction but it’s still had intense moments and twists! I really found this book enjoyable and I’m sure others would think so too. 4 Stars for such a good read!

  2. This sounds more like something I would read. But if there is actually a woman called ‘Glory’ in Glasgow, I will eat a haggis wrapped in a kilt! 🙂 X
    (Authors. What’s wrong with real names? Just asking…)
    Best wishes, Pete. xx

    1. Hi Beeteypete – the names Grace and Glory were chosen to fit with their back story of Catholic girls from Perth moving to big bad Glasgow, and is one of the dimensions of socio-economic difference in Scotland that is explored.
      Haggis at mine 🙂

      1. I think you’d actually enjoy the book, based on your post on Siblings today – (the family Servitude angle).
