S E Lynes recommends
The Babysitter (2023)
Emma Curtis
"This book! It has made me late, made me skip work, made me trip over because I was reading it walking round the house, eyeballs glued to the page. Tightly structured, crack-cocaine addictive and totally brilliant. Brava!"
Freeze (2023)
Kate Simants
"A tour de force; a brilliantly handled, gripping locked-room thriller of great scope, with deeply human characters that leap off the page and brain-popping twists."
End of Story (2023)
Louise Swanson
"Compelling and engrossing dystopian fiction, with much food for thought."
The Nurse (2021)
J A Corrigan
"Will stay with you long after the final page."
Imperfect Women (2020)
Perfect Strangers

Araminta Hall
"An immersive, intelligent and gripping exploration of the deep wells of female friendship and what it means to be a woman in a world made by and for men. Hall gives us three flawed female characters and shows how their expectations of life are thwarted in different ways, exploring their relationships and enticingly messy behaviour with compassion, even in the darkest of deeds."
A Fractured Winter (2018)
Alison Baillie
"An intricate tale of shifting landscapes both external and internal, in which literally nothing is as it seems."
