Marika Cobbold recommends
Bonjour, Sophie (2024)
Elizabeth Buchan
"Tender, beautifully observed, gorgeous."
The Garnett Girls (2023)
Georgina Moore
"This novel has it all, wonderful contemporary characters you come to really care about, loving but tangled, and at times fraught, family relationships, love in all its forms, and at its core, a destructive family secret. I loved every minute I spent with the wonderful Garnett Girls, their friends and extended family."
Close to Home (2017)
(DI Fawley Thriller, book 1)
Cara Hunter
"Great characters, engrossing story and a twist at the end I did not see coming."
