Today I am reviewing Her Revenge by Emma Tallon. This was released on the 22nd of March, published by Bookouture.
There’s a new girl in town and she has a score to settle.
Scarlet Drew isn’t to be messed with. As the daughter of a notorious London gangster, she’s got enough street smarts to take on the world. But when the most important person in Scarlet’s life is murdered in cold blood on the East End streets where she grew up, she can only think of one thing – revenge.
Scarlet’s aunt Lily is fierce, straight-talking and a force to be reckoned with. As head of the family firm and queen of the London underworld, she welcomes her niece into the business and swears to help her get revenge – after all, family comes first.
Scarlet soon discovers that the murder is just one part of a plot by a rival firm to take down the entire Drew empire. She stands shoulder to shoulder with her aunt, ready to fight back, but these new enemies are the most dangerous threat the Drew family has ever faced.
As everything they’ve built begins to crumble, Scarlet’s estranged cousin Ruby suddenly comes back into the firm, with a revelation that could tear the Drews apart once and for all. But can she be trusted? As Scarlet faces up to her enemy, one thing is for sure: family means everything to her and she will stop at nothing to protect it, even if it means putting her own life at risk.
Strong women, family dramas and nail-biting tension make Her Revenge a book not to be missed!
Last year Emma broke my heart with the ending of her amazing Tyler Family series and I didn’t think I would be able to recover. Ok. so I might be acting a bit melodramatic here but it is a fantastic series. (if you haven’t already, you need to check it out!) Anyway, I am pleased to say that she mended my heart right back together with a brilliant start to a new series with Her Revenge.
Emma Tallon is one author that really does bring the gritty crime thriller genre to life so well and with each book you feel you are part of the action. Her Revenge is no exception. Right off the bat I was caught up and tangled in its web unable to tear myself away until that last page. Action packed and full of tension and suspense this is a first class read.
With a cast that consists of already memorable characters for me, I can’t wait to see how they develop over the course of the series. Fierce and feisty, these women are bad ass all the way and I loved them! Emma Tallon has done such a great job with their creation and has brought them to life beautifully.
Her Revenge is a super fast paced read that will have you flicking the pages long into the night. It is superbly written and I can’t wait to read more. It was a pleasure to read and review Her Revenge, which I highly recommend.
Thank you to Emma Tallon, Bookouture and NetGalley for allowing me to read an advanced copy of Her Revenge, which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily.
