Today is my stop on the blog tour for Harry Brett’s new book, Time to Win! Scroll down below for my review.
When local crime boss Richard Goodwin is pulled from the river by his office it looks like suicide. But as his widow Tatiana feared, Rich collected enemies like poker chips, and half of Great Yarmouth’s criminal fraternity would have had reason to kill him.
Realising how little she knows about the man she married, Tatty seeks to uncover the truth about Rich’s death and take over the reins of the family business, overseeing a waterfront casino deal Rich hoped would put Yarmouth on the map.
Out of the shadows at last, it is Tatty’s time now, and she isn’t going to let Rich’s brother, or anyone else, stand in her way. But an American has been in town asking the right people the wrong questions, more bodies turn up, along with a brutal new gang. The stakes have never been higher.
With her family to protect, and a business to run, Tatty soon learns that power comes with a price . . .
I did enjoy this book but it started out quite slowly and I don’t think it really picked up the pace until about 25% through the book. My husband is initially from the Norfolk Broads so I have visited Great Yarmouth a few times and do know the area quite well, I do think that the author has done well with the descriptive nature and setting the scene and it has made me wonder how much really goes on behind the scenes in these smaller seaside towns. I enjoyed the plot once I got in to it. Three stars from me.
