‘My name is Madeleine, Madeleine Ross. It is a name chosen with thought and because it is classy, and that is what is needed here…’
Madeleine Ross has life exactly as she planned it.
Cosy cottage, friendly village, satisfying job.
Company… when she wants it.
It’s an enviable existence for an independent young woman, and one she’s keen to protect.
Enter Daniel – strong, dependable and a danger to everything she’s built. He’s not something she was looking for, but hearts can’t be controlled and maybe, just maybe he might be worth letting into hers.
But, all is not what it seems. Because Madeleine is hiding a lifetime of secrets. Deep secrets.
And they never stay buried for ever.
Her darkest secret returns, like the proverbial bad penny. He is her first love, shadowy, dangerous, the baddest of bad boys. No matter how far she runs, or how well she hides, she can never escape him.
Or her past.
Here he is, on her doorstep, with a proposition she is powerless to resist but which could devastate the future she hoped to have.
Can Madeleine satisfy the old love while keeping the new?
You can’t always get what you want but, desperate to preserve the life she has worked so hard for, Madeleine is willing to risk everything to prove that she can.
Initial feedback has been promising, and there have already been reviews. Some are on Goodreads, others have been on blogs and will hopefully be appearing on Amazon today. Here are some tasters that I hope might just whet your appetite for more:
‘Parallel Lies is an intelligent, entertaining read which I devoured greedily in a few days. If you are looking for a thriller with a dark edge then I can’t recommend this novel highly enough.’ Lindley Reviews
‘I loved this book and read it in just a couple of sessions. The writing is good and the characters, especially Madeleine, are well-drawn. The storyline is original and the level of suspense kept building. A great new book from Georgia Rose, highly recommended.’ Elizabeth Ducie
‘I really enjoyed reading Parallel Lies, a beautifully written mystery with more twists and turns than a rattlesnake. Maddy is not your typical heroine, she comes with all manner of faults and failings. Some you won’t approve of, but you will understand them.’ Anita Dawes
‘If you are any kind of romance reader, or like a light thriller with a bit of drama and a bunch of suspense, you’ve got to get your hands on this book!’ Behind the Willows
‘I also loved that Maddy is no victim and is clearly a strong character that does not need a man to come save her. She handles her business!’ Ms Circumspect
‘There are a lot of things going on in this book. It is well written and keeps your attention throughout.’ Sassy Redhead Book Reviews
‘Mystery and romance peppered with a lot of attitude, this is a thrill of a read.’ Christina Philippou
‘…it’s a cracking good read, a mixture of mystery and crime with an overlay of romance.’ Judith Barrow
‘This is a book which surprises and intrigues the reader with an unusual but likeable heroine who will win your loyalty. A highly recommended read.’ Lizanne
‘There are complexities and twists in abundance as the tale gathers pace so that by half way, I was definitely hooked.’ Julie Haiselden at Whispering Stories
‘I gave a big round of applause for the way in which the mystery unfolds; the information is fed to the reader at the right time, in exactly the right amounts, to hold the reader’s interest and make them wonder what’s round the next corner.’ Terry Tyler
‘Parallel Lies is very well written, measured and steady to begin with in keeping with village life, with suspense and tension building progressively as the story unfolds.’ Between the Lines
(and you can feel the warmth of my virtual hug if you do :-))
