#BlogTour #Extract ~ His Guilty Secret by @helenefermont @BookPublicistUK #Giveaway #HisGuiltySecret

Secrets & Lies Are Dangerous.

When Jacques’s body is discovered in a hotel room his wife, Patricia, suspects he has been hiding something from her.

Why was he found naked and who is the woman that visited his grave on the day of the funeral? Significantly, who is the unnamed beneficiary Jacques left a large sum of money to in his will and what is the reason her best friend, also Jacques’s sister, Coco, refuses to tell her what he confided to her?

Struggling to find out the truth, Patricia visits Malmö where her twin sister Jasmine lives and is married to her ex boyfriend. But the sisters relationship is toxic and when a family member dies shortly after, an old secret is revealed that shines a light on an event that took place on their tenth birthday.

As one revelation after another is revealed, Patricia is yet to discover her husband’s biggest secret and what ultimately cost him his life.

His Guilty Secret is an unafraid examination of the tangled bonds between siblings, the lengths we go to in protecting our wrongdoings, and the enduring psychological effects this has on the innocent…and the not so innocent.

Hélene Fermont is the author of three books. Because of You and We Never Said Goodbye are also available on Kindle and in print from Amazon.

About the Author

Hélene Fermont was born in Malmö, Sweden’s third largest city and beautiful cultural hub where she enjoyed an idyllic childhood, surrounded by beaches, parks and commons. Her parental home was filled with music and literature and she started to write short stories which she entered into competitions at eight years old. Writing is her passion.

She moved to London in the mid-90s and the city has been home for more than 20 years. Malmö is her native city and she regularly spends part of the year there surrounded by the beautiful landscape and tranquillity which inspires her writing.

Her debut novel Because of You was published in August 2016. The novel is inspired by visits to London during the 80s. The eclectic club scene was something that she was too young to appreciate fully at the time but it is emblematic of an exciting era that is now gone forever.

Her second novel – We Never Said Goodbye – was published on the 6th April 2017 and the third – His Guilty Secret – will be available via Fridhem Publishing from 27th November 2017.

“With pleasure. I wish you a great day and look forward to seeing you tomorrow.” Tom was almost out of the door when the man stepped over to him and gave him a £50 note.
“You must treat yourself and your girlfriend to something nice, Tom, perhaps a movie and bottle of wine? It’s wonderful to see you again.”
“But it’s too much…I can’t accept it,” Tom said, only too pleased to be of service to them without the generous tip.
“We insist, you must take it or we’ll be upset,” the woman said, smiling at him.
The young porter beamed, bowed and reminded them he would return in the morning with their breakfast, before wishing them all the best and closing the door behind him.
Alone at long last, the man’s eyes lingered on the woman seated on the bed. “Je t’aime…you will never know how much I love you.
Promise me one thing: when it’s time to leave, you must start to look forward to our next meeting.” His voice was hoarse with emotion.
“I can’t! My heart breaks each time we say goodbye. Why can’t we be together all the time?”
“You know the answer. I can’t leave her…Patricia loves and relies on me, just like I do with her. You and I made a pact that we’d
never leave our marriages no matter how hard it is for us to be apart.
What’s changed since then?” He sounded as sad as they both felt.
“I don’t love him anymore, I don’t think I ever did…not after I met you. I’m only with him for one reason, as you know.”

The woman burst into tears and lay down on the bed, covering her face with her hands. She’d agonised over whether to put an end
to their relationship but it was too painful to imagine he would not continue to be a part of her life. They were soul mates, regardless of the others who shared their lives.
“You are the love of my life. I’m lost without you,” she cried, feeling his arms around her as they lay together, gazing into each other’s eyes.
“I feel the same about you…And her. Patricia is my wife. I’d never have asked her to marry me if I didn’t love her.” Imagining her eagerness to see him after weeks apart, he felt the same turmoil as if he’d betrayed her trust. But the woman he was with meant just as
much to him. And he knew he would never be able to choose one over the other. “We’ve got too much to lose. I hate to see you so
upset, have you told him how you feel?”
Whenever they were apart, he often wondered if she was happy with the man she had been married to for longer than he and his wife. But long ago they had agreed to never mention their respective lives and spouses while together, except for the one thing that meant everything to both of them.

#Win Holiday For The Hostile by Joy Mutter

HOLIDAY FOR THE HOSTILE, the second book in The Hostile series, is a gripping contemporary paranormal thriller with a splash of horror. It was published on Amazon in Kindle and paperback editions in December 2016 and can be read as a standalone. Serena, plus her unusual friend and partner in crime, Tile X, reluctantly find themselves suffering a family holiday at her eccentric grandfather’s hovel in Ireland. Who will manage to escape intact from their dramatic holiday from Hell?

Readers tell me Holiday for The Hostile is even better than book one, The Hostile, the paranormal thriller I published 8 months before its sequel. I’m currently writing book three of The Hostile series. Here’s a snapshot of what a few of the readers say about Holiday for The Hostile: “Ms Mutter has carved out a new niche for herself. And from where I’m standing, she’s way out in front … With some books, you get an idea where things are going and where they’re likely to end. Not this one. Every chapter was a surprise with new characters and situations and a bunch of wonderfully inventive deaths.” “It has plenty of scary bits … can’t wait until book three is out.” “The end is a total surprise. Was expecting a skeleton in the family closet, but it turns in a completely different direction, keeping you on your toes and guessing.” “Excellent. Really looking forward to more. Joy tells a good tale.”

#Win The Last Flag: Volume 1 (Race The Dead) by Wren Cavanagh E-Book

What would you do to pay the bills; to survive, or to just get rich, would you compete against other teams in a quarantined town filthy with zombies wanting to bite out your throat?
Emma and Lewis sign up for the race, they need the money to save his life. But they won’t just be racing the dead, the surprise blizzard or the other contestants.

Because anger and vengeance know no bounds and like everyone in the blighted town they become pawns in a game of retribution.

The contestants become nothing more than live entertainment to viewers who watch and judge their every move in the town of Prideful as they race each other to arrive alive to a final flag. The team that makes will get airlifted out alive and go back home richer for it, the others walk back to a pittance and if they are not careful. They won’t get out at all.

#WIN The Hostile by Joy Mutter PB

The Hostile is an offbeat, “refreshingly original” contemporary paranormal thriller. “A bizarrely captivating” read. It’s book one of The Hostile series. Book two, Holiday for The Hostile, was published in December 2016 and is already receiving great reviews. Both books can be read as standalones. I’m currently writing the third book of the series.

In a rundown area of Manchester, inside the bathroom of a terraced house overflowing with children and dysfunctional parents, a powerful entity befriends young Serena with disastrous results. This unlikely enigmatic force not only dramatically affects introverted Serena’s life but also threatens the well-being of everyone she knows, especially those people who’ve earned the strange girl’s displeasure. It soon becomes clear that nobody should ever upset Serena if they know what’s good for them. After reading The Hostile, you’ll never look at D.I.Y. in the same way again.

All nine of my Kindle editions on Amazon are always free to Kindle Unlimited subscribers. The paperback versions won’t break the bank either. If you enjoy audiobooks, two of my books, The Hostile and Her demonic Angel, are available on Amazon, Audible and iTunes as audiobooks.
