Elizabeth Fremantle recommends
An Inconvenient Wife (2024)
Karen E Olson
"Kate Parker has just wed her boss, the six-times-married Titan of industry Hank Tudor, when the headless corpse of a woman is discovered on his land. But this is not the first one - some years before another decapitated female was found and never identified. Kate is hell-bent on finding out the truth. I thought I knew exactly where this was going but Olson kept me guessing with her twisty plot. Hugely entertaining, bursting with irony and all about the women - imagine The Tudors set in the world of Succession, by way of Jackie Collins. I was swept off my feet."
Bonjour, Sophie (2024)
Elizabeth Buchan
"A coming-of-age novel and so much more. Buchan weaves her narrative into a mystery that must be solved as much for the reader as for Sophie, whose story recalled, for me, the young heroines of Elizabeth Jane Howard, modern women cramped by convention, yet spirited and courageous. A wonderful, engrossing, tear-jerking and joyful read."
The Square of Sevens (2023)
Laura Shepherd-Robinson
"The Square of Sevens is a cunningly plotted and wonderfully captivating novel that conjures up the Georgian period with a magical touch. Shepherd-Robinson guides us effortlessly through the social and political landscape of the time - the South Sea Bubble, the wonders of science, the complicated manners of Bath society - and populates this terrain, from drawing rooms to backstreets, with a plucky heroine and a cast of hugely engaging characters, each with their own secrets and flaws and all woven together with Dickensian deftness. I defy even the most curmugeonly not to be thoroughly entertained."
