Helen Cooper recommends
You Know What You Did (2024)
K T Nguyen
"I got totally drawn in by this unusual, mysterious, atmospheric story and its complex protagonist. With themes of identity, guilt, mental illness, and fragmenting reality, you never quite know who or what to believe. Right until the end, I kept changing my mind about how all the intriguing pieces of this disturbing puzzle might resolve. It's definitely worth reading it to find out!"
The Running Club (2023)
Ali Lowe
"The Running Club was all about the fascinating characters for me. Their overlapping pasts; their places in the social hierarchy; their resentments, jealousies, secrets and betrayals. A running club riddled with rivalries, leading to a murder mystery that had me gripped til the end."
Her Perfect Twin (2022)
Sarah Bonner
"I was gripped by this unpredictable rollercoaster of a novel! Full of conniving characters, clever twists and high stakes. It had me constantly wondering what the characters were going to try next and who was going to prevail."
