Synopsis

No Filter by Orlagh Collins

This is the story of THAT SUMMER ...the one when everything changes. Emerald has grown up in a privileged world - the beloved daughter of a wealthy family, friends with all the right people, social media addict. But Emerald's family has secrets - and when Emerald finds her mum unconscious on the bathroom floor, no one can pretend any more. Now she's being packed off to stay with her grandma in Ireland while her mum recuperates and her dad just works and works and works. Grandma's big, lonely house is set back from the beach, and there's no phone signal or wifi. It's going to be a long summer ...Until she meets Liam.

When you're falling in love, it's hard to tell someone everything. Even if you've got nothing to hide any more. And when secrets and lies are all you're used to, how do you deal with real love - brave and true - with no filter?

The books for review are always great reads, brilliantly written, and introduces me to a huge variety of, established and new, authors.

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
