Blood Sister

Blood Sister

‘This is a first book in another series by this author and it starts off with a BANG.’ Goodreads reviewer

Book 1
in the FLESH AND BLOOD series, BLOOD SISTER is a gripping drama following one East London family over forty years. Perfect for fans of Kerry Barnes, Kimberley Chambers and Martina Cole.


Welcome to Essex Lane Estate – or, as it’s better known by its residents, The Devil. There are two ways out: you either make good, or you turn bad.

Jen Miller is determined not to repeat the same mistakes her mother did. She’s waiting to find herself a good job and a decent man. In contrast, her younger sister Tiff is running errands for a gangster and looking for any opportunity for fun and profit. But she might just be in over her head…

As the sisters cross paths with the unstoppable Dee – a woman with her own agenda – both Tiff and Jess learn that the plans you make often have a way of going wrong. Especially if you live on The Devil’s Estate.
But, at least they can rely on each other…
Can’t they?

This is strong and provocative writing...nails the psychology of her characters freighting in layers that propel the book out of its crowded genre into the realms of something more thought-provoking and complex. Roll on book two
