Dead Perfect - blog tour



Book Description:

‘Hugely confident … harrowing, visceral … recommended’ Ian Rankin

‘Kept me hooked’ Angela Marsons

‘An excellent read’ Martina Cole

'Gritty, dark and chilling’ Mel Sherratt

A murdered woman…

When the body of a young woman is found in a local park, DC Maggie Jamieson knows she’s dealing with no ordinary killer.  The murder victim has been disfigured; her outfit changed to resemble someone else.  Someone Maggie knows all too well…her close friend Dr Kate Moloney.

A determined detective…

Maggie is determined to keep her friend safe, but with Kate already struggling with a threatening stalker, Maggie now fears Kate’s life is in real danger.  Who else would want to harm Kate and why else would the killer be turning his victims into exact replicas – his living dolls? 

Can Maggie find the depraved killer?  Or will Kate become his next living doll?


Dead Perfect is book three in the DC Maggie Jamieson series. These are excellent reads so I highly recommend you read them. 

DC Maggie Jamieson next case is too close for comfort. Her friend Kate seems to have a stalker and with a serial killer on the loose Maggie has her most challenging case yet. 

The author has written a story in such a way that it hooks you from the start. I couldn’t help but read it in one sitting. I can’t wait to read more from this author.

Bliss Uncovered - blog tour



Book Description:

The bestselling author of the stunning DI Bliss crime series is back – this time with a thrilling prequel novella.

A double life – a single truth.

Fresh out of uniform, DC Jimmy Bliss finds himself at the centre of an undercover sting. Enlisted by a crew of villains to crack a safe, he fears his cover is blown when he’s seen in the wrong place at the wrong time.

But on the night of the job, things run smoothly enough until the gang leader changes the location of the heist. As the job spirals out of control, Bliss has to trust his instincts and buy some time. There’s just one problem: he has no idea if his team know what has become of him.

As the situation escalates, Bliss finds himself at the mercy of a violent criminal who will do anything not to be caught.


Bliss Uncovered is another excellent read by this author. When I heard this author was writing a prequel for DI Bliss I was unsure but I should have known better. This exceeded my expectations. I absolutely loved reading about the younger side of Bliss. He’s working under cover and I gotta say I was holding my breath quite a bit. 

This is another faultless read by this author. I’m already looking forward to reading more from this author.

Blood Brothers - blog tour



Blood Brothers

When you’re running the streets, loyalty is everything…

Gangs rule the streets of the rough Gallowburn Estate in Glasgow, but the deepest rivalry of all is between Jamie Gray and his friends, known as the Blood Brothers, and their enemies, the Lawsons.

The two gangs clash frequently, but when a phone containing incriminating evidence disappears after a particularly brutal run-in, the stakes are higher than ever.

Jamie’s mother Jackie is as hard as nails and is not going to let anyone hurt her boy – even if she has to roll up her sleeves and get stuck in. What she wants more than anything though, is to see Jamie turn his back on the street life. And when he meets spoilt rich-girl Allegra, who has a penchant for shoplifting, Jackie thinks she could be Jamie’s way out.

But with the Lawsons closing in, and everyone taking sides, there is only one way out for Jamie, and to triumph he must take out his biggest enemy…

I’ve read a previous book by this author so was looking forward to reading this story.

A bad man once broke me, leaving me trapped in a cage built out of my own shame. Shackled to the bars of the past.

Afraid. Lonely. Unable to move on.

Then, I met him.

Beautiful, intense, and stuck in a cage of his own. He makes me want to live again. I want to save him. I want him to save me.

But good guys don’t like ruined girls. And even if he did, would I have the courage to break free, and learn to fly again?

For him?



A sad woman once broke me, leaving a crater in my chest I’ll never fill again.


Crippled by past mistakes and present fears.

Then, I met her.

Enchanting, stunning, and in pain. I want to love her. I want her to love me.

But she doesn’t deserve to fall into the abyss of my broken soul. I should stay away and yet, I can’t let her go. Am I strong enough to become a better man?


A debut novel. Really? Wow after reading this I’m hoping the author plans to write loads more as this was a brilliant read. As soon as I started reading I was hooked. This storyline is addictive. 

Arabel and Lorenzo brought so many emotions out of me. Their story is intense and full of feelings. 

This is a beautiful well written story that will stay with me for a long time. There are triggers so may not be for everyone. 

Can’t wait to read more from this author. 


Alessandra Vitale is an author that hates to talk about herself in third person so…


Hey! I’m Alessandra. I love to write and can’t imagine life without pouring my heart and soul onto a page, physical or digital. I graduated with a degree in psychology that I didn’t use for long but that now helps me write emotional, healing stories. A few years ago, I met my parents’ neighbor, and within days I knew he was the one. We now live by The Blue Ridge Parkway with our little girl Ella, our dog Rex, and two adorable (albeit loud) Australian budgies. Oh, and about a dozen crazy chickens. I love aerial dance, music, and baking. I’m obsessed with the British band Muse, which I force my family to listen to often (but it’s okay because I bake for them all the time). When I'm not writing, I'm enjoying the beauty of our forty-acre wood,reading, talking with my friends about books, and hanging out with my husband and little human.

The Twins - blog tour


The Twins

If you liked Blood Orange you will love this!

From the moment they are born, twins Susan and Sarah are inseparable. Through good and bad, the girls will always be together…forever.

Until they meet Jonny.

Older, charming and handsome, Jonny offers the girls the much-needed love and attention they crave. But he can only choose one and for the first time in their lives the girls find themselves split apart – the invisible thread that binds them severed.

Set-free from her twin, Sarah builds a new life for herself, marries, has a daughter. But Susan’s life spirals further and further out of control.

And now Susan is back. And she’s determined to reclaim everything she feels Sarah has taken from her.

Her home, her husband…her life?


The Twins is a well written story that I thoroughly enjoyed. 

Sarah and Susan are identical twins- always be together. Well so they thought until they met Jonny. He must choose between them. He has a daughter with the one he chooses. When the other twin turns up many years later everything will change again.

 This is a cleverly written story. 

Although I was sometimes confused with the different timelines and similar names I was glued to this story. 

I can’t wait to read more from this author.

Torment - blog blitz



Who can you really trust?

Beth couldn’t be happier. She is eight weeks pregnant and married to the man of her dreams. But after returning home from a celebratory meal, she finds a wreath from her sister’s grave hanging above the bed and a kitchen knife embedded in her pillow. There are no signs of a forced entry. Nothing is stolen. And no one other than the cleaner has a key to the house.

Then a campaign of terror begins. Beth becomes increasingly paranoid as it becomes clear that someone close to the family is behind these disturbing events.    

But who would want Beth dead?

Does the past hold the clue?

And can Beth find the answer before it’s too late?

Torment is a story of misplaced loyalty, revenge and sacrifice.



This is another fantastic read by this author. I was literally gripped from start to finish. 

Beth is pregnant and happily married. When she returns home after a meal her life is about to change and not in a good way. 

A campaign of terror begins on Beth as she doesn’t know who to trust or believe.

Who is out to get her and why?

A brilliant read with some great twists and turns. Although I predicted some there was other twists that had me mentally high fiving the author
