Review: Harlot by Tracie Podger


Charlotte Kenny is nineteen years old and a prostitute.
Not by choice, though.
When a client is murdered, Charlotte is thrown into a world she believes should be between the pages of a novel.
Beau Mercier is an ass with a dark past.
When Charlotte ends up on his doorstep, he knows trouble will follow.
Two people, who neither trust nor like each other, are forced together in a town where all is not as it seems.
Can Charlotte escape her trouble? Can Beau open up enough to help her?
Both want to, but secret pasts, murder, and intrigue, get in the way.
Harlot accompanies the thrillers, Gabriel and A Deadly Sin, and can be read as a standalone.

This book left me completely speechless. Seriously I had no idea how to even start this review! This book was awesome.

Charlotte's world was turned on its head when she was younger. She was raised by her Granma until she died. That's when her cousin arrives, a cousin that Charlotte doesn't know, & her life gets much, much worse.

When Charlotte decides enough she makes a run for it. As she is trying to escape the hell she lives in she meets a man who offers her a lift. Unsure she accepts & heads to a new town hoping for a new life.

Can she make it? Will she learn who she can trust? Will her past catch up with her?

These characters are... epic!!! Honestly, they will capture your mind, work their way into your heart & make you feel everything they do.

Charlotte has endured so much in her 19 years, lesser people would have given up long ago. But Charlotte just seems to pick herself up, dust herself off & push herself for more each & every time she faces another set back.

Beau... Now Beau he's a tough cookie! That man has secrets & talent. He comes across as a bit of an ass to Charlotte but I think as the story progresses & we learn more about him, we understand why. Maybe even forgive him.

The characters are well thought out, they interact well & all play key roles in the overall plot; which is so much bigger than I originally thought. Their emotions are intense & real, & can be felt throughout the entire book.

Tracie's writing style has again flawed me & left me speechless. When I started reading Harlot I knew it would be a roller coaster ride & I expected to be drawn into the world that Tracie had created. I was drawn so far into Charlotte's world & life that I felt as though I was right there alongside her every step of the way.

Tracie has created & delivered a fantastically intricate & detailed web of events & emotion that as a reader can be seen & felt unravelling before our very eyes. Harlot is an extremely well written book!

As much as this is connected to Gabriel & A Deadly Sin the references are small & would not cause any confusion to someone who hasn't read these 2 books. Harlot can therefore be read as a standalone without any problems or confusion.

Well done Tracie on another fantastic book. I cannot wait to see what comes next! <3 (:
