Georgia Rose has turned to the darker side of suspense with her latest series, A Shade Darker. And today the 1st March 2024 we have published the third in this series, Hard to Forgive

Long held secrets… A lifetime of guilt…

A woman abandoned. Her ex now married. How long will she wait to exact her revenge?

Betrayal, birth, and bereavement. Dora Smith had faced it all by the age of twenty. Alone, she tracks down her former lover planning to reveal everything to him, and his new wife. But with their first child on the way she can’t bring herself to rock their relationship.

Instead, she plays the long game, watching, waiting, wanting him to put a foot wrong. Never dreaming it would take a lifetime.

Then another love is lost. Is this the tipping point that pushes Dora into a spiral of self-destruction. Or, had that been triggered long before?

Hard to Forgive is a gripping domestic thriller. If you like character-driven action, suspenseful storytelling and unexpected twists then you’ll love this exciting novel.
