From best-selling author Mel Sherratt, The Estate Series – where even the darkest times have their lighter moments…
Who needed SOMEWHERE TO HIDE?
Do we really know what went on BEHIND A CLOSED DOOR?
Who was FIGHTING FOR SURVIVAL?
SECRETS ON THE ESTATE is a prequel to the The Estate Series and contains new material in the form of diary entries of main characters before we meet them in the first three books, plus new characters that will be featured in the next book, WRITTEN IN THE SCARS. There are also ‘secrets from the author,’ plus ‘snippets from housing officer Josie Mellor,’ as well as prologues for the first three books.
If you enjoy watching British drama and television shows such as Eastenders and reading books by Martina Cole, Mandasue Heller and Casey Kelleher, then The Estate Series could be right up your street.
Secrets on the Estate is a relatively short book and even though it is classed as a prequel as I haven’t read any of the author’s other books yet for myself it introduced me to the author’s ‘The Estate’ series.
It didn’t take me long to read at all and I enjoyed all of the content of the book.
The book is basically compiled of getting to know some of the characters from the series as well as snippets from the author about her books and how she works. The reader also gets to enjoy some extracts from the full length books as well as some chapters that didn’t make it to the published books.
After seeing so many of my book friends raving about Mel Sherratt’s books I thought I’d take the plunge and start off with this one as it’s an ideal book to find out more about a series of books and also whether they would be books that I would be interested in. Have got to say after reading Secrets on the Estate I can not wait to actually get started on the full series and to get to know more of some of these interesting characters.
Even though this is a prequel the author introduces us to these characters in a form of a diary so any readers that have already read the series will still find a lot of things in this book that they haven’t read before.
I for one am now looking forward to starting out on a new journey of discovery of this authors books and I think for any readers that like me who haven’t already read this author’s work will certainly want to after reading Secrets on the Estate.
I have awarded this book 4/5 stars.
