I love a book that even after the first page it feels as if you are right there with the characters. Mel Sherratt effortlessly pulled me in as we are introduced to Grace and to be honest what an intriguing character she is. With a very tricky background for a person in the police force I was waiting to see what would happen if and when her team finds out about her connection to a notorious crime family.
I think the main thing of note regarding this story is that the characters are really well developed especially as I instantly became attached to Grace. She really is in a tricky situation caught between two very different worlds affecting both her job and personal life. I really felt for her especially as sometimes it felt as if she couldn’t win either way!
The plot moves pretty quick and I would say from just a couple of pages in I was hooked. Mel Sherratt really knows how to pull the reader in with such a natural way of telling her story that really made for an engaging read. With plenty of secrets, twists galore and a whole set of trust issues. I really enjoyed getting to know the team along with seeing the investigation play out.
Don’t you just love it when you discover the start of a brand new series. If book one is anything to go by this series will be fantastic! So even though this story is called Hush Hush I won’t be quiet in saying how fabulous this book is. Bring on book two!
