The Sixth Window
THE TRUTH HURTS – BUT LIES ARE DEADLY
After eighteen months of grieving for her husband Bernie, killed in a horrific hit and run accident, Natalie Gray has found love with her husband’s best friend – Ed Cooper – and has moved herself and fifteen-year-old daughter, Scarlett, into his home. But Natalie begins to suspect Ed has a dark side – and even darker intentions.
Desperate to get her daughter to a place of safety, she and Scarlett move to a new home that holds secrets of its own. But has removing Scarlett from one potential threat placed her in far greater danger?
DCI Tom Douglas is also chasing the truth, as his investigation into the suicide of a teenage girl draws him ever closer to Natalie and Scarlett. But will he be too late to protect them from the peril they face, or from the truths that will tear their lives apart?

Rewind, recap – weekly roundup w/e 19/2/17

Wowsers. Busy week this week. Started out with a one to one with my Admin Manager on Monday. It was a great meeting as I’m giving him some new opportunities for development which he is taking to like a duck to water. Great for him, even greater for me as I know I can trust him to do a brilliant job for me. After the meeting, we pootled down to Tottenham for a few days to audit one of my depots, followed by an impromptu trip to Basildon to repeat the process at another. All very productive and beneficial, but it did mean I have not had a lot of reading time. Starting everyday at 06:00 and finishing with dinner with colleagues at 19:00 three nights in a row, I was ready for my bed, not necessarily for my books. (Side note – Premier Inn in Edmonton ‘rumbles’ and shakes with the traffic from the North Circular. If you like your sleep with a side order of vibration, it’s a perfectly lovely hotel. If not…)

#BlogTour – Review: ‘Blink’ by K.L. Slater (@KLSlater; @Bookouture) #Nottingham #144Books

It’s my absolute pleasure to be one of the next blog tour stops for the superb new book by K.L.Slater, Blink.

33232027After the death of her husband, crippling debt forces Toni Cotter to leave the home that she and her daughter Evie share in Hemel Hemstead to move to live nearer to her mother in Nottingham. Nothing is here as as they are used to and grief combines with the reality of her situation to make Toni’s life just that little bit more unbearable.

Needing to earn money to pave their way, Toni takes on a part time job at an Estate Agents, a job she is far too qualified for but after a long gap in her work history she is still nervous about starting again. And with Evie struggling to adjust to her new surroundings and refusing to go to school, Toni is pushed to the edge, forcing her to turn to the wrong source for relief from her pain.

Harriet Watson is a Teaching Assistant at Evie’s school. She can see the impact that Toni’s grief is having upon the child and she is determined to step in and help. She has a plan. One which will help both Evie and Toni, if only she can get Toni to listen.

And then the unthinkable happens. Continue reading “#BlogTour – Review: ‘Blink’ by K.L. Slater (@KLSlater; @Bookouture) #Nottingham #144Books”
