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?

Be prepared to be wowed.” C. S. Lakin, author of Innocent Little Crimes
“... this isn’t for the faint of heart, but [Jessica Bell] does a fantastic job of giving real heart and motive to some really messed up people ... The character struggles weave together, clash and collide and as you can imagine, there is a lot of collateral damage ... if you like to see a bit of triumph in the wreckage, this may very well be for you.” Hart Johnson, author of A Shot in the Light
“Edgy, pacy, and chillingly real. A book you’ll sink your teeth into and never forget.” JJ Marsh, author of The Beatrice Stubbs series

The ending is to die for in this psychological thriller. White Lady by Jessica Bell is a psychological thriller that starts out slow. It seems as if the people are your normal, run of the mill people, just trying to get through life but, WHOA! I sure did not see that happening! The ending caught me off guard and left me speechless. We start out with all the issues teenagers have – bullying , weight gain, friends, desertion by a parent…… The more I read, the tension rises. These people are seriously messed up. Mia – I used to be hot, now I’m not. She used to be the school s***, but since her mother left she has become a chubette. She has self esteem issues and loathes what she has become. Nash is Mia’s dad and a teacher at her school. Celeste is the mother who deserted her and her father. Sonia is also a teacher at the school. Mick is her son. His father has deserted their family too. He is way out of control. I thought he needed a slap up side the head. Kimiko is an exotic beauty, a fellow student. Who the heck is this Ibraham that everyone’s talking about? I had a feeling about Sonia, but is anybody sane? All the characters come together and things that seemed like the usual life and death dramatics in a teen’s life, change to real danger. I went back and forth with this book. Twenty per cent through, I was ready to quit. I kept reading and by thirty percent it began to capture my attention . By sixty percent I’m hooked. And the ending...WHEW! That is why I try to finish every book I read. I cannot anticipate what secrets are hidden in the pages and I don't want to miss anything good. :lol: The book changed from the growing pains of teenagers to an adult psychological mystery. The characters are manipulated and the push and pull as they try to find their way takes them down a path that will have severe repercussions. I received a copy of this book in return for an honest and unbiased review.
