BLOG TOUR ~ The Madam by Jaime Raven

Hi Everyone,

Today is my stop on the Blog Tour for The Madam by Jaime Raven which is Jaime's debut novel. I am thrilled be taking part in this wonderful Blog Tour and delighted to welcome author Jaime to my blog and a BIG thanks to Helena Sheffield from Avon Books for allowing me this opportunity to take part with some other fab book bloggers too. Yesterday @ReviewCafe was on the Blog Tour with a guest post on her blog about CONS AND EX CONS followed by a review which you can read here

Same-sex relationships are common among female inmates in UK prisons. 
And now it’s one of the striking themes in The Madam, the exciting new thriller from Avon/Harper Collins.
The book, by Jaime Raven, tells the heart-breaking story of Lizzie Wells, a young prostitute and single mum who was framed for killing a client and jailed for manslaughter.
While banged up in Holloway prison she enters into her first lesbian relationship with her cellmate, a woman named Scar.
In real life such relationships are often seen as a counterbalance to loneliness and the term ‘gay for the stay’ is often applied to them.
But for Lizzie and her lover their affair turns into true love – a love that’s tested when they’re both released from prison and go after the people who framed Lizzie.
Author Jaime researched the subject thoroughly before putting pen to paper.
‘The relationship between Lizzie and her cellmate is a key part of the book,’ says Jaime. ‘I wanted it to be as authentic as possible. That was why I spent a lot of time reading up on the subject. 
The dynamic between the pair is such an important part of the plot – in fact it’s really what drives it forward when Lizzie’s life is threatened and she finds herself in deep trouble.’
The Madam is a thriller-come-love story that Jaime hopes will make an impression on multiple levels.

The Madam is currently only 99p on Kindle which you can purchase here ~
