June 2015 Book of the Month.

The Good Life is an audacious, irresistible love story snuggling up to a ferocious crime drama. Unless you've not read a Martina Cole novel before, you should know exactly what you're going to get; crime, scandal, offensive language, violence and a completely enthralling read. Cain Moran is coming out of prison after 25 years, he's big, he's bad and he's still in love with Jenny Riley; will he step back into his place in the criminal underworld, will his ex-wife finally lay their past to rest and will Jenny still be waiting for him? With short punchy sentences and concise dynamic chapters, the four books contained within this novel follow on ten years from each other, from 1979 through to 2008. Cole doesn't condone the violence contained within her novels, she is very matter of fact and has a gift for being able to show the human, normal, everyday side of her characters. ‘The Good Life’ has heart and soul and is a fabulously energetic, gripping read. ~ Liz Robinson

The Good Life Synopsis

Cain Moran wanted Jenny Riley more than he had ever wanted anyone or anything before in his life. But loving Jenny Riley was the easy part; it was telling his wife he wanted a divorce that was going to be the killer...Jenny is not just any girl. She cares nothing for Cain's hard-man reputation - she just wants to be with him. But Cain is not a free man. And he's about to find out that when his wife Caroline said 'til death us do part, she meant it. When Cain is sentenced to life in prison it seems that Caroline might have got her wish. All Cain and Jenny know is that if their love can survive such separation, then one day they will have a chance at the Good Life together again. But there are greater trials ahead than either can foresee. They're about to learn the hardest lesson of all: LIVE THE GOOD LIFE. PAY THE PRICE.
