Review of Hit Girls

Hit Girls - Dreda MitchellI listened to Hit Girls by Dreda Mitchell through my Audible which I have on my phone. You can read more here about audible on an earlier blog I did.

Anyway, I downloaded Hit Girls when it came within a ‘2 for 1’ offer, unsure whether it was my type of thing. But I’m so pleased I did. The dramatic start to the story sets the scene for the rest of the novel. When two innocent girls are run down outside school by a 4×4, and a young boy is left seriously ill in hospital, you can’t help but want to know more! As I listened to the heart-wrenching description, I realised I’d stopped breathing. This not-so accidental incident leads to individual characters seeking revenge and finding out the culprit of this horrific crime.

I was taken in straight away by Jackie and the other ladies. I loved Jackie and Schoolboy. In fact, I practically fell in love with Schoolboy. The Lewis family had me intrigued from the beginning, I was desperate to know what was going on behind that family, without giving away any spoilers, there were a few shockers! I’m not usually into ‘gangster’ type films or books, but I can honestly say I loved this. Every chapter had me hanging on for more information. The action was on-going.

In their attempt to find out the killer, they turnover a few stones that many wished were left. I think Dreda Mitchell has done a fantastic job of making all the characters interesting, a busy intertwining plot that is structured so you don’t lose who has done what, and a great story that keeps you on the edge of your seat. If you fancy delving into a story about loyalty, justice and trust this is a book I would definitely recommend.

If possible, my book tour gets better!

Beckies Book Mix

I’m so excited! In fact, I’m that excited to write this blog post, while Daddy plays lego with little people, that I’ve just burnt pizza!!! (However, for anyone who knows me though, this is not something that is unusual! – I get distracted VERY easily 🙂 )

Anyway, I told you earlier in the week about my book tour hosted by Fiction Addcition Book Tours, and you’ll have read how excited I was at the beginning of the week when Dawn from Crooks on Books gave me an amazing 5* Review.

Next I talked with JB from Brook Cottage Books about winning a competition judged by Adele Parks while studying for my MA, and much more interesting stuff! Loved this interview … but I did talk for ever! I can’t help it when I’m enthusiastic! The questions were fab: asking about being a wedding planner, my positivity, my future writing plans and so much more. I could have talked to JB all day long!

If that wasn’t enough, and I wasn’t already buzzing with meeting such lovely people, along comes Beckie from Beckie’s Book Mix: who gave me such an awesome review, I’ve got jaw ache from grinning all day!

I just can’t believe it. I’m even having a glass of vino to celebrate! God, just think if I made it to the bestseller list, I’ll be treating everyone to champagne 🙂

This tour continues throughout next week. I’m just loving this … I don’t want it to end 🙂

Right back to the next pizza!!!!
