One Little Lie (2018)
Sam Carrington

The Rules of Seeing (2018)
Joe Heap
"This year’s Eleanor Oliphant."
The Book of Love (2018)
Fionnuala Kearney
"The Book of Love is my book of the year. It deeply affected me with its exquisite portrayal of the highs and lows of a long-term relationship and the enduring power of love. Fionnuala Kearney writes with a depth of emotion that pulls the reader into the very heart of the story. Simply brilliant."
Cuckoo (2018)
Sophie Draper
"A remarkably, taut and chilling debut. I absolutely loved it. Brilliant writing. All the creepiness. A heart-stopping ending."
Call Me Star Girl (2019)
Louise Beech
"It's a slow burn at first until it twists and turns at a head-staggering rate to a devastating climax. Original, moody and totally gripping."
Sleep (2019)
C L Taylor
"C. L. Taylor gets better and better with each book. Dark, claustrophobic, gripping – everyone is going to be talking about this book."
The Flatshare (2019)
Beth O'Leary
"In the league of Bridget Jones and Marian Keyes' Walsh sister books... Fresh, funny and feel-good, The Flatshare is brilliantly written and the perfect antidote to any bad day. I loved it."
Rewind (2019)
Catherine Ryan Howard
"Claustrophic, terrifying, and most of all satisfying, Rewind sees Catherine Ryan Howard succeed in bringing something fresh and fierce to the crime genre once again. Totally gripping."
The Babysitter (2020)
Phoebe Morgan
"Another brilliant read – possibly my favourite of hers yet. Tense, twisty and gripping. I was NOT expecting that twist!"
Below the Big Blue Sky (2020)
Anna McPartlin
"I read Below the Big Blue Sky in two days. My heart is full. I have laughed and cried and held my breath. This is a very worthy sequel to The Last Days of Rabbit Hayes, and the wonderful Anna Mcpartlin has proven once again what an incredible writer she is . . . An incredible story of grief, resilience and strength of character shot through with humour. Just brilliant."
Three Single Wives (2020)
Gina LaManna
"Up there with Big Little Lies and Desperate Housewives."
When They Find Her (2021)
Lia Middleton
"Had me hooked from the first page ... a gripping and twisty story of grief, fear and the fierce bond of motherhood."
Just Got Real (2022)
Jane Fallon
"I finally finished this BELTER of a read from Jane Fallon...It is FABULOUS - with such warmth and humour, and the usual dose of the dish that is best served cold. Just Got Real is the perfect summer read."
