Cathy is widowed, not yet 40, and takes in people who need somewhere to live in her "safe" house. Liz is married to Kevin who constantly uses and abuses her even thought they have a child together called Chloe. When Liz realises that enough really is enough, her and Chloe are moved to Cathy's safe house which she is currently sharing with troublesome Jess.
On the same day that Liz turns up, so does Becky, a young girl with a secret and although they know she has run away from somewhere and someone, she won't tell anyone. Cathy's house is on the Mitchell estate, one side of the estate is where people who like to look after themselves live, with their good jobs, nice gardens and well tended to houses. The other half is full of trouble, unemployed, burnt out cars, run down houses and people who really don't care about themselves or anyone else for that matter.
Austinis a young man who is planning a big surprise for someone on his 21st birthday. But who is that surprise for and why?
I was first introduced to Mel's writing last year when I read Taunting the Dead. Once again in this book, her writing is exciting, gripping and mesmerising and I was quickly lost to the real world, deeply engrossed in the story. I could definitely see her books being portrayed in a TV series but I haven't chosen the characters yet!
You get stuck into the plot very quickly and totally immersed with the goings-on in this gritty tale of life on a tough estate. The characters are hard and you really wouldn't mess with them. Cathy was a really strong main character, likeable, gutsy and brave sticking up for the girls in her care, helping them to achieve something in their lives and not take any crap from anyone.Read more ›
The "somewhere to hide" of the title is both a derelict pub where the novel opens as a psycho predator instals himself waiting for a date with his destiny in August and a safe house for young women run by the matronly and amiable Cathy. She takes in teenage runaways Jess and Becky and battered wife Liz and the novel charts their experiences on the notorious Mitchell estate in an anonymous city somewhere in northern England in the time running up to the aforementioned date with destiny.
Mel Sherratt writes in good plain English which is compelling to read and she has the rare knack of making the reader want to turn the page. There's an element of chick-lit in there with the customary girly get togethers complete with cushion throwing, wine drinking and appreciating a fine pair of male buttocks. There is an underlying love story in the background alongside the stories of several troubled lives as the younger girls are dragged into a seedy underworld, Liz is stalked by her battering husband and Cathy lives with a harrowing secret looming over her.
It's a very good read and certainly five star entertainment as the story builds into an explosive climax.
