Lucy Foley recommends
The Leftover Woman (2023)
Jean Kwok
"At once a hugely atmospheric and suspenseful mystery and a compelling exploration of motherhood and belonging that packs a profound emotional punch. I couldn't stop thinking about this book."
None of this is True (2023)
Lisa Jewell
"Gloriously dark, so clever and completely addictive - this is Lisa Jewell at the very top of her game. This book kept me up reading late into the night and haunted my dreams!"
The Ghost Ship (2023)
(Burning Chambers, book 3)
Kate Mosse
"A gorgeously written, utterly absorbing epic and, despite being set in the sixteenth century, has some very pertinent messages for our time about the evils of religious persecution and the transcendent power of love and family. In case it's not clear enough yet, I absolutely LOVED it."
The Spare Room (2023)
Andrea Bartz
"Sexy, atmospheric, deliciously creepy, and ingeniously plotted: the best kind of up-all-night page-turner."
Bad Summer People (2023)
Emma Rosenblum
"Delicious: such gossipy, naughty fun. Cancel all plans while reading - I inhaled this darkly hilarious book over one weekend and resented everything that kept me away from it."
Death Under a Little Sky (2023)
(Jake Jackson, book 1)
Stig Abell
"Gloriously atmospheric and masterfully plotted with such a strong sense of place, this is a huge treat for crime fiction lovers. I can't wait for the next instalment!"
