Sara Collins recommends
The List (2023)
Yomi Adegoke
"Cleverly constructed, utterly compelling, immersive, and addictive. The List is the literary equivalent of 'water cooler television'. I was hooked from the first page."
The Half Moon (2023)
Mary Beth Keane
"I fell in love with The Half Moon from the first page, and barely looked up until I'd finished. Mary Beth Keane has written another brilliantly absorbing novel about complicated marriages and family dynamics - how they shape us, yes, but how they undo us as well. Prepare to lose yourself in this book."
The Key in the Lock (2022)
Beth Underdown
"Deliciously intriguing from the very first sentence, with shades of Du Maurier and Dunmore. I was hooked by this exquisitely written tale of secrets and lies."
