    One thought on “Heather”

    1. Note: I was provided with a copy of this book from the author for review.Sendall has developed and executed this story brilliantly, with style and surprise. From the intriguing prologue to the gripping final pages it's a story that's clever, captivating and at times heartbreaking. The narrative is exciting and suspenseful, even when nothing much is happening plot wise, meaning you are never sure what is going to happen, and while you often cannot condone what these characters do, they draw you i [...]

    2. A tale of drugs, sex and sailing - a noir thriller, Oz-style.Hard-drinking Sam and attractive, cynical escort Heather have both lost people close to them due to the adulterated cocaine flooding the backstreets of Sydney. They join forces in order to shut down the dealing operation of the local kingpin, vicious Loretto Reed and his gang of thugs. In order to do this, Sam has to infiltrate Reed's inner circle and pose as someone Reed cannot do without, whilst Heather returns to her past as a gangs [...]

    3. Giveaway & Review on my site. Originally posted on my site, DannieSpeaks: danniespeaks/2015/03/04/boHeather is one of those reads (at least for me) that gives you just enough suspense to guess what might happen next, but… does it? The novel takes you along on the journey of two strangers, Heather and Sam, and the winding circumstances - love, drugs, money - that bring them together in the Australian underworld.My likes:Heather and Sam: You will find yourself rooting for Heather and Sam to [...]

    4. --Reviewed by Danika Jayde from The Reader's Hollow blog: This was an interesting read for me, though at times I found there was an almost staccato flow that made the reading at times a bit broken. There were paragraph breaks when changing the view to know that it was from a different character viewpoint which was great, but then other times there were breaks simply to show a short space in time had passed. Because of this there were spaces in paragraphs where I personally thought were a break f [...]

    5. This story combines the life of a escort with the dark underworld of Sydney and the secretive Marine manager who has a very inertesing past. It took me a couple of chapters to get into it but then i was hooked. The story flowed well and the characters were all developed with great detail and each stood strong from their corner. The knowledge of Sydney, sailing and the underworld of crime brings this tale of revenge together with people searching for a new life. I would recommend this novel to an [...]

    6. Overall, this is a pretty good read!The main characters - Sam and Heather - are effectively portrayed as people who have been for the most part in control of their lives and then find themselves in unfamiliar territory. That makes them a lot like you and me, every new decade of our lives. They're relate-able to many of us even though their current circumstances (hopefully!) are not.Also, the story moves along at a good pace, with a near-perfect balance of dialogue and narrative description.Overa [...]

    7. The most colourful characters ever, it has everything, danger, intense suspense, romance, it keeps you turning the pages, and yearning for more, the best of all is the message to humans who want to change their lives around .I like to see more of these inspiring storys from this very well writen author.

    8. Shadow House is a page-turning thrill ride. The characters are fully fleshed and relatable to some extent. (I can't say I've ever been involved with the underworld in Australia, so not fully relatable.) Good action with a nice mix of romance without hardcore sex portrayed. I could have done without the f-word every other sentence, but I suppose that's the nature of the beast. The ending was a little bit of a disappointment as far as the main characters' involvement. It felt slightly anti-climati [...]
