I didn’t see it at first, sitting between the cash register and a stack of order pads. It might have been there for hours – or longer – just waiting, while I spent another day of my summer dying of boredom inside Gracewell’s Diner.
There were just two of us left to lock up tonight. I was hovering beside the register, drumming my fingernails on the countertop, while Millie, my best friend and partner-in-waitressing, glided around the diner and sang into the broom handle like it was a microphone. Everyone else had left, and my uncle Jack – manager not-so-extraordinaire – had stayed home with a hangover.
The tables stood resolutely in rows, flanked by straight-backed burgundy chairs and the occasional rubber plant.
About the book
When five brothers move into the abandoned mansion next door, Sophie Gracewell’s life changes for ever.
Irresistibly drawn to bad boy Nic, Sophie finds herself falling into an underworld governed by powerful families.
When Sophie’s own family skeletons come to life, she must choose between two warring dynasties – the one she was born into, and the one she is falling in love with. When she does, blood will spill and hearts will break …
“Fan-freaking-tastic … I honestly can’t say enough good things about it! I would read anything Cat Doyle writes after flying through VENDETTA!!”
VICTORIA SCOTT, author of FIRE AND FLOOD
“A grimy, tense, crime/gang thriller with a dynamic cast of characters; VENDETTA brings drama and realism to a dark story of grudges, revenge and passion.”
ALICE OSEMAN, author of SOLITAIRE
