Today is release day for Parallel Lies I’m hugely grateful to all the bloggers and reviewers who have been so generous offering their time and space on their blogs.
Readers get the chance to meet Madeleine for the first time, and here she is…
‘My name is Madeleine, Madeleine Ross. It is a name chosen with thought and because it is classy, and that is what is needed here…’
Madeleine Ross has life exactly as she planned it.
Cosy cottage, friendly village, satisfying job.
Company… when she wants it.
It’s an enviable existence for an independent young woman, and one she’s keen to protect.
Enter Daniel – strong, dependable and a danger to everything she’s built. He’s not something she was looking for, but hearts can’t be controlled and maybe, just maybe he might be worth letting into hers.
But, all is not what it seems. Because Madeleine is hiding a lifetime of secrets. Deep secrets.
And they never stay buried for ever.
Her darkest secret returns, like the proverbial bad penny. He is her first love, shadowy, dangerous, the baddest of bad boys. No matter how far she runs, or how well she hides, she can never escape him.
Or her past.
Here he is, on her doorstep, with a proposition she is powerless to resist but which could devastate the future she hoped to have.
Can Madeleine satisfy the old love while keeping the new?
You can’t always get what you want but, desperate to preserve the life she has worked so hard for, Madeleine is willing to risk everything to prove that she can.

What readers are saying about Parallel Lies:
‘Parallel Lies is an intelligent, entertaining read which I devoured greedily in a few days. If you are looking for a thriller with a dark edge then I can’t recommend this novel highly enough.’ Lindley Reviews
‘I loved this book and read it in just a couple of sessions. The writing is good and the characters, especially Madeleine, are well-drawn. The storyline is original and the level of suspense kept building. A great new book from Georgia Rose, highly recommended.’ Elizabeth Ducie
‘I really enjoyed reading Parallel Lies, a beautifully written mystery with more twists and turns than a rattlesnake. Maddy is not your typical heroine, she comes with all manner of faults and failings. Some you won’t approve of, but you will understand them.’ Anita Dawes
‘If you are any kind of romance reader, or like a light thriller with a bit of drama and a bunch of suspense, you’ve got to get your hands on this book!’ Behind the Willows
‘I also loved that Maddy is no victim and is clearly a strong character that does not need a man to come save her. She handles her business!’ Ms Circumspect
‘There are a lot of things going on in this book. It is well written and keeps your attention throughout.’ Sassy Redhead Book Reviews
‘Mystery and romance peppered with a lot of attitude, this is a thrill of a read.’ Christina Philippou
‘…it’s a cracking good read, a mixture of mystery and crime with an overlay of romance.’ Judith Barrow

About the author
Georgia Rose is a writer and the author of the romantic and suspenseful Grayson Trilogy books: A Single Step, Before the Dawn and Thicker than Water. A short story, The Joker, based on a favourite character from the series followed and is free to download from Amazon.
Her fourth novel, Parallel Lies, a standalone, encompasses crime along with Georgia’s usual blending of genre.
Georgia’s background in countryside living, riding, instructing and working with horses has provided the knowledge needed for some of her storylines; the others are a product of her overactive imagination!
Passionate about horses if she wasn’t reading Enid Blyton she would be reading horse fiction and non-fiction. She has been involved with horses throughout her life, both riding and teaching and still holds out hope that one day she will asked to be part of the jousting team at Warwick Castle.
Her busy life is set in a tranquil part of rural Cambridgeshire in the UK where she lives with her much neglected husband and dog. Their son, currently at university, comes and goes and their daughter, having delighted them all for long enough, has eventually moved out, got married, and is discovering the joys of being all grown up and having a mortgage!
Thank you for opportunity to launch Parallel Lies here, Rosie, it has been a pleasure to visit.
