It seems like forever ago when Jessica asked me to read a draft of her first thriller, WHITE LADY. I knew she was on to something then—but now, in its fully polished and revised state, I'm honestly blown away.

There's something very special about this novel, and
that's saying something since I'm a tremendous fan of her work. It's not just that she seems to have mastered character development (and somehow manages to create authentic POV voices for MULTIPLE characters). Every page of this book is compelling and real, showcasing Jessica's command of the craft, and her magic for storytelling. Trust me: YOU WANT THIS BOOK!

To celebrate the release of  WHITE LADY, Jessica is giving away an e-copy (mobi, ePub, or PDF) to the first person to correctly guess the one true statement in the three statements below. To clarify, two statements are lies, and one is true:

Jessica Bell takes her coffee ...
a. with milk and no sugar
b. with milk and two sugars
c. black

What do you think? Which one is true? Write your guess in the comments, along with your email address. Comments will close in 48 hours. If no-one guesses correctly within in 48 hours, comments will stay open until someone does.

Want more chances to win? You have until October 31 to visit all the blogs where Jessica will share a different set of true and false statements on each one. Remember, each blog is open to comments for 48 hours only from the time of posting.

If you win, you will be notified by email with instructions on how to download the book.

*This novel contains coarse language, violence, and sexual themes.

Sonia yearns for sharp objects and blood. But now that she's rehabilitating herself as a "normal" mother and mathematics teacher, it's time to stop dreaming about slicing people's throats.

While being the wife of Melbourne's leading drug lord and simultaneously dating his best mate is not ideal, she's determined to make it work.

It does work. Until Mia, her lover's daughter, starts exchanging saliva with her son, Mick. They plan to commit a crime behind Sonia's back. It isn't long before she finds out and gets involved to protect them.

But is protecting the kids really Sonia's motive?
