Kate Collins recommends
The Favorites (2023)
Rosemary Hennigan
"A riveting, surprising thriller that contains much more at its heart, The Favorites is a ferocious commentary on the nature of justice, and the gulf between what is right and what is legal. Gripping, emotional, and at times profound, I raced through this in an evening, swept along by the tense, pacy narrative and eager to spend more time with the author's intricate meditations on the intersections of morality, power, and vengeance."
The Black Feathers (2023)
Rebecca Netley
"Reminiscent of Jane Eyre and The Silent Companions... Spooky, twisty, with a surprisingly emotional pay off."
The Other Mothers (2023)
Katherine Faulkner
"The Other Mothers is not only a sharp, fabulously pacy thriller, but also a biting commentary on the demands (and consequences) of a certain kind of performative parenting. I finished it in one sitting, captured by Faulkner's compelling characters and gripping plot, and the ending provided a truly satisfying twist! A sinister window into the darker side of motherhood, you'll never look at playgroup parents quite the same."
