Jenny Ashcroft recommends
After the Last Dance (2015)
Sarra Manning
"I was totally swept up in the world of Rainbow Corner - I didn't want to leave it - and equally was completely absorbed by Leo and Jane's story. Such a fantastic book, I feel very lucky to have read it."
The Last Day (2018)
Claire Dyer
"Exquisitely written and completely immersive, The Last Day caught me up from the very first page. With taut, page-turning plotting, intense emotion, and characters who live and breathe so real, I now feel I know them this book was a complete joy, one I didn't want to finish, but which I know will stay with me for a very long time."

What Might Have Been (2022)
