Sharon Dempsey recommends
What I Did (2021)
Kate Bradley
"Kate Bradley has written an addictive and emotional psychological thriller about the darkest family-held secrets. This intense, heart-racing story kept me reading through the night."
The Family Tree (2021)
Nicole Mabry and Steph Mullin
"Such a great premise, with characters to root for and tension that escalates, leaving you longing for the next instalment. The Family Tree is pacey, compellingly creepy and at times blackly funny."
The Nurse (2022)
Claire Allan
"Wrought with tension and menace. I read it in one terrified gulp."
