Fiona Cummins recommends
The Short Straw (2023)
Holly Seddon
"Three sisters find themselves stranded at the gothic manor house that dominated their troubled childhoods. This irresistible slow-burn thriller is as much a study of family dynamics as it is a creepy & suspense-filled spine-tingler."
The Square of Sevens (2023)
Laura Shepherd-Robinson
"In The Square of Sevens, Laura Shepherd-Robinson excels at recreating the past - in this case, Georgian England - in an authentic way. She invites us to join fortune teller Red on an epic journey to unravel the secrets of her past and we cannot rest until we have answers. Dazzling."
No One Saw a Thing (2023)
Andrea Mara
"As soon as I started reading this, I had no choice but to continue reading until the last page. I DEVOURED it. Such a tense, thrilling ride of a novel that played into my darkest fears and captured the emotions of panicked parents so evocatively."
