I loved the prologue, what a fantastic way to start. It definitely got my attention if nothing else! So far so good!!
There was an interesting array of characters in this gritty novel. There were those that I felt for the young girls, Marnie and Georgie, children who are forced to manage because of their mother’s addiction and then #PoorPoorJason – I did wince but then again he is a naughty boy.
What can I say about Delray? now he is a character and a half. On the outside, he’s a flash hard nosed businessman, generous lover willing to splash the cash on his lady but if you mess with him, you’ll live to regret it! He’s got a proper dark side and the more you read of The Promise, the more you’ll discover he has earnt his hard man reputation and then some!!
And then there is Josie….. she goes from one mess to another, most caused by her addiction. But then she digs herself a very large hole. Will she manage to get herself out?! You’ll only find out by reading The Promise!
This story is rather saucy in places – that Javine she’s a right minx – and as I mention Javine, boy does she come into her own as she grows from the girl we meet in the rather expensive Mayfair club looking for men to buy her drinks – oh lordy having been on a night out in Central London a good few years ago on a starting salary income, I felt her need to have someone else footing the bill for champagne!
This book is totally addictive, I really didn’t want to put it down. I read until my eyes drooped. I really don’t know what sort of genre this book fits into but I loved it! I shouldn’t get hung up on genres and only stick to the ones I know and love – there are so many excellent books out there to read and I’m so glad I’ve discovered Casey Kelleher! The Promise is definitely a fantastic introduction to Casey’s writing and having looked on my kindle, I’ve already spotted I have two of her other novels which I can’t wait to read when my review pile allows!
A massive thank you to Bookouture and Netgalley for my e-copy of The Promise.
Two sisters. One murder. And an unbreakable bond.
Growing up in squalor with their drug-addicted prostitute mother, sisters Georgie and Marnie Parker have had to endure the very darkest side of life.
When their mother is sentenced for brutally murdering a client, Georgie and Marnie’s already precarious lives are blown apart and they now share a terrible secret. Sent to a children’s home, the sisters hope this might finally be their safe haven after years of neglect. But they soon discover they’re in real danger.
This was a fantastic read with brilliant characters. Full of twists. Really had me thinking. Highly recommended. 5*. I voluntarily reviewed an advanced copy of this book from netgalley.

I've read other books where I've considered stopping reading due to the brutality and pure evil in some of the characters, and I did consider that with this one, but knowing the others turned out to be some of the best stories I have read, I decided to carry on.....and I'm so glad I did because the story was absolutely brilliant!
I am really looking forward to reading more from this author.
Utterly captivating. Thank you so much, Casey. I know you'll read this as you said so in your notes at the back! I've just ordered your entire back catalogue...
The story is really good plot and if your a fan of kimberley chambers,mandasue heller, julie shaw,kerry barnes,dani oakley then casey is def for you! 2 young sisters who are growing up having to learn at such a young age of prostitution and drugs due to there mums addictions and way of life, even though josie loves her kids she thinks shes doing the best for them in her own way, in the only way of life that shes known.But then with all these great books there a big twist and a murder , someone comes into the story who sounds up herself and a money grabbing wannabe but shes the one who helps the girls mostly, and someone has to make and keep the hardest promise.they have ever had to make.Def worth a read. im now on to Casey 'Taken' and im sure that after that book i will read her others for sure!
Its a sad but strong story about 2 poor little girls and they struggles they face just to have a normal life with an drug addict mother and living in a dangerous world with some very unsavoury people. Its a really good read and very gritty.
I would definitely recommend her other books too.
