BLOG TOUR - Her Enemy


Fans of Martina Cole and Kimberley Chambers are in for a treat with this absolutely heart-stopping, gripping gangland crime thriller from bestselling author Emma Tallon.

Scarlet Drew has one rule: never back down. But when an anonymous letter turns up at her house telling her they know what really happened the night her cousin Ruby died, Scarlet’s heart races. If they know what happened to Ruby, then they know that Scarlet was there – a secret she has kept guarded from the rest of her notorious family, and for good reason.

Her aunt 
Lily is the formidable boss of one of London’s biggest crime firms and if she discovers the truth about Ruby’s death, Scarlet knows she’ll be cast out of the family for good. Or worse, if her cousin Cillian finds out, he’ll hunt her down and kill her with his bare hands…

Unaware of Scarlet’s dangerous situation, Lily and Cillian move forward with a plan to execute their most daring heist yet. But with big reward comes unthinkable danger and they need everyone’s full focus on the job, if they’re to pull it off.

So failure is not an option for Scarlet – if she’s to stay alive and on top, she must find out who wrote the note, but time is running out. As she closes in on her nemesis, she’s shocked to discover that it’s someone she’s trusted her whole life. Loyalty means everything to Scarlet, and this is a betrayal like no other. One thing is certain: this is her most dangerous enemy yet, and as time runs out, Scarlet knows it’s either her life or theirs…

Scarlet Drew had been doing well in her role as second to her aunt Lily in their crime family. However, the death of Lily’s daughter Ruby (a true thorn in Scarlet’s side) has left the family shaken. Scarlet feels she no longer has the trust of her aunt. Meanwhile, although Scarlet has a new love in her life, her feelings for her previous lover have never left her heart. 

But, that is only the tip of the iceberg. Cillian, Lily’s son and twin brother to Conner, is about to play a very dangerous game for the benefit of the family. As if tensions weren’t already high, the family is being betrayed, most notably Scarlet, and she comes up with a plan to set matters straight. 

What a tense ride! This thrilling book, the sixth book in a stellar series, was utterly compelling and was an exciting one-sitting read. 

Many thanks to Bookouture and to NetGalley for this ARC for review. This is my honest opinion.
