Natasha Lester recommends
The House on Biscayne Bay (2024)
Chanel Cleeton
"A mysterious but very glamorous mansion, sensational secrets and a story spanning several decades are the ideal cocktail, and they're mixed to perfection here by a brilliant storyteller. I guarantee you'll race through the pages of this thrilling, gothic tale, while at the same time wanting to linger a little longer amongst the beautiful but haunted people gathered together at the house on Biscayne Bay."
After the Forest (2023)
Kell Woods
"After the Forest is as deliciously irresistible as the gingerbread Greta bakes in the book. A touch of magic, a dash of mystery, a sprinkle of love and lashings of elegant writing make for a gorgeous debut novel that you'll want to consume in one gulp. Kell Woods shows that she's a born storyteller with a wonderful imagination and I, for one, am now a huge fan."
The Royal Windsor Secret (2023)
Christine Wells
"Royalty, secrets, diamonds and courtesans all come together in this riveting tale. We follow heroine Cleo from the delightful eccentricity of Shepheard's Hotel in Cairo to the glitter of Paris's jewelry salons, to a luxurious royal wartime hideaway as Cleo grows from endearing ingenue to a force to be reckoned with. A sweeping novel about love, ambition and what family really means."
