Dead Hope by Nicky Wells
Release Date: 23rd February 2017
Genres: Thriller / Romantic Suspense

Cat Hope doesn’t want to go to prison. She needs a job, and she needs it fast: judge’s orders. Caught in a drugs raid while trying to dull the pain of her parents’ deathaversary, Cat is serving a ‘rehab’ sentence under a new identity in the deepest depths of rural nowhere.

Kay Mahon, office worker by day and hacker by night, is on the run from a past life that he’d rather not remember.

When their paths cross, they discover that the night that derailed Cat’s future nineteen long years ago also changed the path of Kay’s life. Confused and intrigued, they begin to investigate the truth behind the deaths of the successful rock star couple Jackie and Adam Hope. Little do they know that their quest is putting Cat in grave danger. 

After Cat goes missing, Kay finally puts the pieces together. But how is he going to find Cat and her abductor in a place as big as London before it is too late?

One of the things I love about being a book blogger is that I sometimes get the opportunity to read some fantastic books as they are being written or are in the very early stages of development. Dead Hope was one such book and I've seen it evolve from a first draft manuscript to the amazing novel it is today! I've been a huge Nicky Wells fan for quite a while, loving her romances. But, she has managed to pull off a change of genre very successfully and Dead Hope is going to prove to be one of many books in this genre that Nicky Wells will gift to the world!

The book introduces us to Cat Hope who has been a spoiled, rich brat, her parents having been a famous rock star couple. However, when they are tragically killed when Cat is a kid and this is when she begins to go off the rails. Raised by her legal guardian and parents business partner, Cat as an adult is continuing with her out of control lifestyle and another court appearance proves to be one too many and Cat is sentenced to the strangest type of rehab............move away, assume a new identity, help others less fortunate and get a job! Not being used to living in the 'real world' Cat finds herself lonely and a little bit poorer than what she is used to. Even her legal guardian can't save her as even he doesn't know where she is! Its not long before Cat wishes she'd been given a prison sentence instead!

Cat's new life soon has her questioning all that was familiar to her and the reason behind her parent's deaths. There is so much she doesn't know about her past. Then, she meets computer genius and hacker Kay in her new job and with a dubious past of his own, Kay and Cat are drawn together to find answers into the secrets that surround their past lives. Secrets that now threaten their very future!

This book has it all. Romance, suspense, intrigue and thrills! Nicky well has packaged up everything that readers of all genres will love in this book. Lots of unexpected things in the book that made me sit with my mouth open, trying to digest what I'd just read! The book is nicely paced and leads us into a false sense of security because by the end you will be holding on by the seat of your pants! Lots of surprises and a roller coaster ride! Bravo Nicky Wells! Another fantastic book to have book lovers locking themselves away to devour this book. I fell in love with Kay a little bit too! Ooops! Highly recommended.
