200words (or less) review: Vendetta is SO addictive!
Occasionally I’d look up and wonder how the last 50+ pages had just flown by.
Sophie was keeping her down at her father’s dinner until he returned but then a family of brothers moved into the Priestly house.
Mysteries – yes. Dangerous – probably. Attractive – most definitely.
I don’t really want to go into further details because it’ll spoil your fun when you read Vendetta yourself. The story is intense and Sophie goes through quite a journey. Vendetta is the first book in the series but a complete story so you won’t be left going “Nooooo!” at the end, more like: “I want more!”
Catherine Doyle’s debut is a brilliant page-turner, packed with thrills and intrigue.
