The Madam by Jaime Raven

Book Description:

Women always uncover the truth . . .

Three years and eleven months. That’s how long Lizzie Wells has been banged up inside Holloway prison, serving time for a crime she didn’t commit.

Six months. That’s how long it’s taken Lizzie to fall in love with her fellow inmate, Scar.

Now they are both finally free and, together, they are about to embark on a vengeful search to find those who framed Lizzie . . . and to make them pay.

THE BUSINESS MAN. THE COPPER. THE MADAM.

My Thoughts:

The Madam is very much a story of revenge and seeking justice.

Lizzie has wrongfully been imprisoned for the death of one of her clients and as she had no way of proving her innocence she admits to manslaughter so her time in prison will be a shorter one. Unfortunately nearly four years when you have a child feels like forever, especially when tragedy happens.

Lizzie’s time in prison is made slightly easier when she falls for her cell mate, Scar. I have to say I really liked Scar. She is a good influence on Lizzie and you can tell how much she cares about her.

When Lizzie gets out she very much wants to prove her innocence as well as bring justice to the people who set her up. Obviously the people behind setting her up are not to happy with the digging that Lizzie and Scar are doing and try to scare them off.

I have to say that this is one edge of your seat read. Lizzie just seems to attract trouble and it doesn’t help that the police are very far from being on her side.

I will be honest and admit I wasn’t to sure about the novel at first as there are a lot of similar authors with similar style story lines out there and I didn’t know if this one was going to be any different to the others I had read, but by the end I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed this novel and look forward to reading more by the author.

The Madam is a fast paced novel that certainly kept me on my toes. There are some unexpected surprises in there which I wasn’t expecting and it really made this book stand out for me against others in the same genre. Certainly a gripping read with characters that you unwittingly start to care about. Loved it!

Many thanks to the author for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Goodreads rating 4/5 stars, though would have given 4.5/5 if I could.

The Madam is out today and available to purchase from Amazon.
