The Rules of Seeing (2018)
Joe Heap
"An astonishing debut."
The Binding (2018)
Bridget Collins
"The Binding held me captive from the start and refused to set me free. It is a beautifully crafted tale of dark magic and forbidden passion, where unspeakable cruelty is ultimately defeated by enduring love. Breathtaking!"
Once Upon a River (2018)
Diane Setterfield
"I was completely spellbound by this book. Numerous strands of the same story are skilfully woven into a magical web from which I, as a reader, had no desire to escape. Setterfield’s prose is beautiful, dark and eerily atmospheric, and her rich cast of characters convincingly illustrate the best and worst of humanity. Utterly brilliant!"
If Only I Could Tell You (2019)
Hannah Beckerman
"Utterly compelling and completely heart-breaking. I couldn't put it down."
Things in Jars (2019)
Jess Kidd
"Things in Jars is an extraordinary tale full of dark magic, wicked humour, and hugely entertaining characters all of whom are beautifully drawn. An absolute treat!."
The Rapture (2019)
Claire McGlasson
"Gripping, unsettling and ultimately extremely moving."
Bone China (2019)
Laura Purcell
"A brilliantly atmospheric and chilling tale and I raced through the pages hardly daring to find out what would happen next! Laura's characters and the world they inhabit are compelling, unsettling and richly drawn. A fabulous tale!"
Looking For Eliza (2020)
Leaf Arbuthnot
"A wonderful story about the redemptive power of an unexpected friendship. Leaf's characters are fresh, engaging and beautifully drawn. A marvellous read."
The Brilliant Life of Eudora Honeysett (2020)
Annie Lyons
"An exquisitely poignant tale of life, friendship and facing death. In the latter, the author dares to explore a subject that many shy away from, but she does so with touching sensitivity, gentle humour and absolute honesty. Eudora’s courage, dignity and wry sense of fun are beautifully drawn as she takes the reader on the heart-breaking yet ultimately uplifting journey of her life and death. Everyone should read this book."
The Cottage of Curiosities (2020)
(Pengelly, book 2)

The Making of Mrs Petrakis (2021)
Mary Karras
"The Making of Mrs Petrakis is a heart-warming, heart-breaking story of love, life, family and, of course, baking. Mary Karras is a fresh and exciting new voice in fiction and her prose is every bit as delicious as the mouth-watering pastries sold in Mrs Petrakis' renowned bakery."
This Fragile Earth (2021)
Susannah Wise
"This superbly accomplished debut is dark and compelling but ultimately filled with hope. I couldn't put it down."
The Measure (2022)

"What an incredible book! It's truly original with an intriguing premise that's beautifully executed. I loved the fact that it was written from so many POVs, each adding depth and perspective to the overall narrative which made it a rich and satisfying read. I found it gripping, poignant, and intensely thought-provoking."
