The Good Life



  The Good Life

It's been a little while since we had a blog post from the fabulous 'Murphy's Mother' so I am delighted to share her brand spanking new book review with you all this evening. 
And off we go...

Dear Fellow Readers 

I think you all know by now my all time favourite author is Tess Gerritsen and I can't wait to review her up coming novel 'Playing with Fire.' 
Due for release in November, it's a step away from the Rizzoli and Isles series but I just know it will be amazing. 

Today I'm reviewing another firm favourite... Author Martina Cole and her latest book The Good Life.

If you're not aware of Martina she is a No 1 bestselling author of crime fiction. Several of her novels have been adapted for television including The Take and The Runaway. Martina has also had Two Women and The Graft adapted for the stage.

Cain Moran wanted Jenny Riley more than he had ever wanted anyone or anything before in his life. But loving Jenny Riley was the easy part... It was telling his wife he wanted a divorce that was going to be the killer...
Jenny is not just any girl. She cares nothing for Cain’s hard-man reputation – she just wants to be with him but Cain is not a free man. And he’s about to find out that when his wife Caroline said '’til death us do part', she meant it. 
When Cain is sentenced to life in prison it seems that Caroline might have got her wish. All Cain and Jenny know is that if their love can survive such separation, then one day they will have a chance at the Good Life together again. But there are greater trials ahead than either can foresee. They’re about to learn the hardest lesson of all...
The Good Life is a compelling read from start to finish and I couldn't put it down.

Cain Moran was The Face people feared but his love for Jenny couldn't be denied...
This novel had all the trademarks of another great Eastend crime story and although you know the outcome quite early on in the book it's still a gripping read. Martina seems to know intimately about the world in which she writes and this is no exception. This is a powerful piece of family drama taken to extremes.

Martina's next novel 'Get Even' is released in October.

Until next time...
