A woman with a troubled past. A new love hanging in the balance. Will an unexpected visitor strengthen her resolve or destroy the life she’s trying to build?

Madeleine’s world, once so organised, is a mess. Suffering the fallout from the mistakes she made with Tag, she has no idea where she stands with Daniel. Are they only friends or is there still a chance for something more?

Loving Vengeance takes up Maddy’s story where Parallel Lies left off. 

After four years reinventing herself in a new location and with a new identity, Maddy (aka Scarlett) could be forgiven for thinking she was safe. But she has been left battered and bruised after her past caught up with her in the form of the ex-boyfriend she left behind. Now, after a visit from a Detective Inspector Lambert from the Met, Maddy is left in no doubt that the police are aware of her background. 

Once again Maddy is pulled into something she’d rather not be involved in, through lack of choice. Or at least, out of the two choices there is only one outcome she wants. But to achieve that she has to help the police to apprehend the leader of her old gang, taking Maddy back to the place and the people she thought she’d never see again. She also realises with no little trepidation her troubled previous life will become common knowledge and with it the possibility of losing her friends and everything she has gained since she came to the village.

“I think we can help each other out. I have a proposition for you and in return I’m going to do you a favour.” Okay. I am intrigued. 

We follow the intricate and well devised plot from Maddy’s first person perspective, which gives a great insight into her thoughts, feelings and insecurities, as Georgia Rose skilfully weaves the storylines together.  Each of the supporting characters are well rounded and play their part in the story. Maddy is kind hearted, as we found out previously, and has developed into a strong character who values her independence and isn’t afraid to voice support for her friends when they have been threatened and treated unfairly. I particularly enjoyed how she turned the tables on the very unpleasant mayoral candidate.

I’m certain this will raise enough suspicion to cause Ben a significant dip in popularity. Certainly anyone who knows him will definitely know exactly who this has been written about.

Loving Vengeance is quite a fast paced, character driven story, with the odd chapter coming from Dan’s point of view as he does his best to be there for Maddy and keep her safe. A fitting and very enjoyable conclusion to Maddy’s exploits.

I chose to read and review Loving Vengeance based on a copy kindly supplied by the author.
