The Mystery of Haverford House (2024)
Rachel Burton
"I was swept away, desperate to unlock the mystery... I really couldn't have enjoyed it more... gorgeous... atmospheric... page-turning plot... it might just be Rachel Burton's best novel yet!"
A Beautiful Rival (2023)
Gill Paul
"No one writes like Gill Paul. She has this incredible gift for spinning fact into fiction, immersing the reader utterly in the brilliant, page-turning worlds she creates, bringing the most iconic of figures to vivid, sparkling life. In A Beautiful Rival, she does this for famed rivals, Elizabeth Arden and Helena Rubinstein, portraying their passion. ambition, loves, and insecurities, so truly that I've been left feeling I know them. I think this might just be her best yet!"
The Maiden (2023)
Kate Foster
"I simply could not have loved this novel more. In Christian and Violet, Kate Foster has created two unforgettable characters, whose stories I became utterly and delightedly glued to. Page-turning, transportive, funny, and tremendously moving, The Maiden is a book to lose yourself in - just make sure you don't have any plans, because once you start reading, you won't want to stop."
