Today I am taking part in the blog tour and reviewing The Rise by Shari Low and Ross King, published by Boldwood Books.

BOOK DESCRIPTION

Their rise was meteoric.

Only a few years before, they had been three friends from Glasgow, just trying to survive tough lives of danger and dysfunction.

But on one Hollywood evening in 1993, they were on the world’s biggest stage, accepting their Oscar in front of the watching world.

That night was the beginning of their careers. But it was also the end of their friendship.

Over the next twenty years, Mirren McLean would become one of the most powerful writers in the movie industry.

Zander Leith would break box-office records as cinema’s most in-demand action hero.

And Davie Johnson would rake in millions as producer of some of the biggest shows on TV.

For two decades they didn’t speak, driven apart by a horrific secret.

Until now…

Their past is coming back to bite them, and they have to decide whether to run, hide, or fight.

Because when you rise to the top, there’s always someone who wants to see you fall.

An exciting new glam thriller for the fans of Taylor Jenkins Reid, Liane Moriarty and Jo Spain

When we bury our secrets, they always come back to haunt us…

Reminiscent of a Jackie Collins novel, The Rise definitely fills the void left by Collins and is your next guilty pleasure! Glitz, glamour, deception, scandal, secrets and mystery, this book has it all!

An inside look into the lives of the rich and famous, against a backdrop setting of LA in the present and Glasgow in the past, the two world’s collide when a long buried secret from 20 years ago, kept between three once inseparable friends, threatens to be exposed and ruin everything they have worked for.

The characters are well formed and developed and each play the role they have been given well. The narrative alternates between the three, which I enjoyed getting their individual perspectives.

I liked the writing style of the authors and although it is a slow burn to begin with, it does ramp up making for a more gripping and suspenseful read. All up this is an entertaining story and I look forward to reading more from the authors.

Thank you to Shari Low, Ross King, Boldwood Books and NetGalley for allowing me to read an advance copy of The Rise, which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily.

This review will be added to, Goodreads, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Amazon Australia & Amazon US. I will also add to NetGalley, Apple Books, Kobo, Google Play Barnes & Noble, Waterstones, Foyles and BookBub if available. As I am from Australia, I am unable to add to Amazon UK.
