First off, if you haven't read the previous books you really do need to. I mean technically you don't but...well...why wouldn't you? I read the first three which was originally though of as a trilogy however by the end of book 3 it was imperitive that a book 4 was produced and thank goodness it was.

For those that want a general overview, these books feature an absolutely blinding family called the Millers. Babs Miller is the Mum and overall 'Head Honcho' of the family. As expected the family ar

Having read book one Blood Sister, book 2 Blood Mother and book three Blood Daughter it meant that I knew all of the characters and so when I dived head first into book 4 it was because I couldn't wait to reacquaint myself with all of the characters as I really felt like I'd gotten to know them and of course given that this is the final book, I couldn't wait to see how it all ends for the Miller family.

Just like the previous three books, this book was full of action, drama, arguments, and shocki

Fast paced and authentic dialogue combined with a great sense of place meant that I was soon sucked into their lives and the hunt for the missing gold!

Pearl and Babs were brilliant characters, I got a real visual sense of them as I read and could almost hear their voices from the pages. Strong East End women with tragic pasts that brought them to where they are today. The characters were raw and realistic and each of them had a story that made me want to listen! At times it felt as though I was

Dreda never fails to deliver! Another fantastic gritty part of the Mitchell saga. This is a story full of mistaken betrayal which nearly rips the whole family apart, with a few old faces thrown in the mix. This is 100% one of my favourite series I have read. Full of suspense it will make you laugh one minute then distraught the next. Absolutely brilliant! I am praying there will be another installment of this binge worthy series. A must read!

Another superb book from Dreda from book 1 through to this one, Gripping from page one characters jump to life and being book 4 it’s like reading about old friends some sad bits and funny bits I wish I hadn’t read it so quick I miss them already. Make sure you read books in order I promise you won’t be disappointed.

What a fantastic book! Great to have Babs and her family back with all the problems and all the secrets. I defy anyone to find a better story beautifully written over four books. This one is very special though, everyone’s secrets finally come out into the open and we get answers to a lot of questions. The way this book is written truly makes you feel you know all of the characters and you feel their pain and anguish but then their absolute joy.
Could not possibly recommend this book enough, fant

Wow the Blood series just got better and better with every book. I absolutely loved following the lives of Babs Miller and her daughters. A real page turner with so many twists a totally gripping read that draws you in from page one.

Absolutely best book I've read this year.

So disappointed when I finished it as I wanted it to go and on. Had a bit of humor, romance, family life and proper bit of crime and punishment.
Can't wait for your next book .
