Louise Candlish is the author of seven novels, including the bestsellers Since I Don’t Have You, The Second Husband and Before We Say Goodbye. After studying English at University College London, Louise worked as a travel writer, art book editor and copywriter, before beginning her first novel on a whim during a holiday in Sicily. Her books are emotional dramas, often located in foreign settings where characters behave quite differently from the way they might in their lives at home. Other People’s Secrets (published by Sphere in July 2010) is set in Orta San Giulio in the Italian Lakes, where Louise spent several (rainy) weeks researching. She lives in South London with her partner and daughter.

Louise Candlish recommends
This Secret We're Keeping (2016)
Rebecca Done
"You might be surprised who you find yourself rooting for in this engrossing and intelligent tale of forbidden love. I enjoyed it hugely."
Truly Madly Guilty (2016)
Liane Moriarty
"A masterclass in teasing, drip-feed storytelling, this tale of three recognizably flesh-and-blood couples navigating the fallout of a disastrous social gathering is another triumph for Liane Moriarty. I loved every line of it."
Little Sister (2017)
Isabel Ashdown
"A missing baby girl, a marriage ravaged by mistrust, a sibling rivalry with a very dark heart: LITTLE SISTER had me gripped from start to finish."
Something in the Water (2018)
Catherine Steadman
"A thriller for our times... Catherine Steadman is a fresh and playful new voice and I can’t wait to see where her imagination takes her next."
The Most Difficult Thing (2019)
Charlotte Philby
"Charlotte Philby’s debut The Most Difficult Thing is an enigmatic and slippery beast, a cool new generation of spy novel. Just as the characters play cat and mouse with one another, so does the author with her readers – it’s a guessing game right to the end and I turned the last page with my heart pounding. Recommended."
Layover (2019)
David Bell
"You meet someone at an airport and the connection between you is so irresistible you change your flight and chase after them. This killer premise kicks off David Bell's twisty, breakneck thriller, and has you tearing through the pages to a shattering finale."
