Dark and twisty

Deliciously dark and twisty. This story was fast paced and suspenseful with more questions than answers until the exciting finale! I had guessed who the baddie was, but not why they had done the things they did. Looking forward to this

“I love social network sites, and am very active, in fact I am on there a bit too much! But writing is a solitary affair and it's good to reward yourself with a chat now and again - that's my story and I'm sticking to it. I love being in touch with readers and it really gives me a boost when I get a good review or a nice comment. It means so much to hear that people are enjoying my work, that's what it's all about in the end, isn't it”
Amanda James

“No matter how much you're enjoying your own life, when finding out about someone else's, you unexpectedly feel like theirs is more interesting.”
Amanda James, The Calico Cat

“Pain and sorrow make up a person's character, not just the happiness and laughter.”
