Alex Aster recommends
Check & Mate (2023)
"Ali Hazelwood is the queen of smart rom-coms, and Check & Mate is her best book yet. Filled with snappy banter, clever characters, and crackling tension (and lots of chess!), this is the perfect rivals-to-lovers romance. Check & Mate will have you swooning, laughing, staying up all night, and smiling so much your face hurts. This book is my new obsession. Who knew chess could be so romantic?"
Thieves' Gambit (2023)
"A propulsive, high-octane thriller that kept me guessing until the very end. Full of breathtaking heists, complex relationships, high-stakes tension, and characters I would follow anywhere, Thieves' Gambit gripped me from the first page, and never let go. You won't want to stop reading."
Midnight at the Houdini (2023)
Delilah S Dawson
"A dazzling adventure you don't want to miss. Midnight at the Houdini has magic, mystery, twists, and an enchanting world you'll want to get trapped in. I was bewitched from the first page - the story kept me guessing until the very end. Delilah S. Dawson's propulsive writing makes it impossible to put down."
