Publisher's Summary

Three Butlers. Two weddings. One funeral.

The explosive new novel from the Sunday Times number-one best-selling author Kimberley Chambers.

Times are changing in the East End, from bad to worse.... Despite the love they share, Bella and Michael's lives seem to be continually throwing grenades in their path to true happiness. Bella's dark secret is threatening to spiral out of control - and has the power to destroy the Butler brothers' bond once and for all....

Meanwhile, Little Vinny has truly turned over a new leaf and is doing everything he can to be a good husband and father. He doesn't want to follow in his old man's footsteps, but the apple never falls far from the tree, and despite everything he's done to wipe the slate clean, his past is about to catch up with him.

Everyone knows the Butler family's reputation - you don't mess with them unless you've got a death wish. But there's someone out there doing the unthinkable - and they are aiming for the heart of the family. It feels like the end of a golden era - could it finally be the end of the Butlers?

Perfect for fans of Martina Cole.

Simply Brilliant

I have read all of the books in this series and it just seems to get better and better.

Kimberley Chambers, in my view, is one of the best authors out there and brings a real sense of being involved. It will be hard, but I will be waiting for the next instalment.

FABULOUS!

What did you like most about Tainted Love?

Queeny(ie) what a great character. Her and her sister Viv made the book. All the different characters and their relationships are powerful and how they intertwine is exciting, the dialogues are proper Eastend, Annie performed them perfectly. This book is a mixture of all the emotions, laugh, cry, anger, sympathy, it is excellent. It's a "must"!

Which scene did you most enjoy?

Queeny and Viv are so funny, lots of great dialogue, I was LOL quite a lot, so much so, when out with the dogs in the forest I found myself looking around to make sure no one was listening.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Yes a particular death (I won't spoil it by mentioning who), it was unnecessary and came out of the blue. The worst part is that this type of brutality does exist in real life.

Any additional comments?

I have loved these books and feel a little empty that the Butler / Mitchell feud has come to an end. Keep writing Kimberly and Annie you are the very best, love listening to you, don't you stop either.

Another fabulous Kimberly Chambers

What did you like about this audiobook?

I love how this book connects the Butler and Mitchell families. It would not be so good if you haven't read all the other books in this series so if you haven't read all the others- you are in for a treat -just waiting for the next book...

Excellent book, I just couldn't stop listening

How I waited for this book, and what a great read it was.

All the characters are in full flow with more twists and turns yet again.

Kimberley, you are again at your absolute best and I can't wait for the next one.

Of course, it goes without saying that Annie Aldington is simply the best narrator for this genre of book!

Crazily amazing

I have just finished the butler series and it was fantastic... From beginning to end easily the best I've read in a long time . I also had whisper sync so could listen to the story as well ... And I have to say Annie Aldington is brilliant really pulled you in . So much to say I am going to listen to all the books she has narrated ... A must read . 😃

Kimberley does it again

I loved everything about this book. And I just love Annie Aldingtons voice. I couldn't get enough of this book so full of twists and turns I didn't want it to end. I really hope this is not the end of the Butlers.
