Top 5 Martina Cole books

Martina Cole is my favorite author, I have read and re-read all of her books so I wanted to make a list of my top 5. I personally prefer her earlier novels but still thoroughly enjoy her new stuff and am really looking forward to her new book coming out. Some of her stories cover subjects that are hard hitting and gritty.

Goodnight Lady
This my favorite of all her books it was the first one I read. I've read it numerous times and also lent my copy out to people to read.
It's about a tough lady called Briony Cavanagh who comes from a difficult and poor childhood to running the most famous brothels in London.
If anyone hasn't read any of her stuff I would highly recommend starting with this one.

Dangerous Lady
First book about Maura Ryan a 17 year old who has the only girl in a family of boys who are tough and feared. A lot of betrayal and upset mar her life but she battles through everything life throws her way.

Mauras Game
This is the second book about Maura Ryan and it shows her as the leader of the family business. She has to deal with everything that comes her and her family's way.

Marie Carter recently released from prison after killing her two best friends is trying to rebuild her life. A former drug addict and prostitute she can't actually remember much of what happened the night she killed her friends.

The Take
I love this book, it was also made into a tv series starring the one and only Tom Hardy (what's not to love about that!) It centres around Freddy Jackson and his family, he is not a nice man and terrorises everybody he comes in contact with.
