The Tempests #1

Meet the Tempest family – and get ready for the storm.

Tracey Tempest adores her husband, Terry. But when on his 50th birthday, tragedy strikes, Tracey must face the terrifying prospect of a future without him. Desperate for answers and boiling with rage, Tracey wants revenge…

Together with her beloved sons, Ricky and Jamie, the Tempest family dig deeper into Terry’s past – who would want to kill him, and why?

But what they discover changes everything they knew about the man they loved and risks tearing their own family apart.

Can the Tempests weather the storm or will the past destroy them all?




A new series is always a combination of two things : saying goodbye to the previous characters and saying hello to a new family. So I, for one, was very curious what the author was going to treat me to, because the books I have read by her hand, were gems, each and everyone of them.

Let’s meet the Tempests. 😊

There is dad Terry, a ‘businessman. If you are a fan of gangland crime, you probably already have a feeling what kind of business he could be involved in. He is married to Tracey who adores him and together they have two sons Ricky and Jaimie, who work with their father.

When a member of your family dies, it’s a tragedy, but when a loved one is murdered in cold blood during  his birthday party, it’s even harder. Why did he have to die? Who is responsible?

Tracey wants to know who the culprit is and with the help of her sons she is out for revenge.

The question rises again: how well do you know someone?

A lot of people are able to hide behind a smoke screen and nobody even realises it. Digging in someone’s history can make you love them even more or despise them from the bottom of your heart.

It’s hight time to put an end to one era and start creating a new one.

It’s hard to say you like characters in a gangland crime story, because they are often not very kind, but sometimes a few of them have a heart of gold underneath that cold exterior. They are ruthless when they defend what is theirs, whether it’s family or possessions, but some of them admit there are boundaries that have to be respected.

So yes, I like the ones with that soft heart and the iron armour.  😊

A great first book of this new series. I enjoyed it a lot. 5 stars

Thank you
