Liz Nugent recommends
In Her Place (2024)
Edel Coffey
"It's an incredible read of despair, love, hope and betrayal. I thoroughly enjoyed it."
Finding Sophie (2024)
Imran Mahmood
"An exciting and compulsive read - Mahmood has surpassed my expectations with an astonishingly twisty tale of despair, deception, and desperation."
The Book of Secrets (2024)
Anna Mazzola
"The Book of Secrets is a gripping historical thriller where the readers' dilemma is that we are rooting for both sides - the investigator and the women he is hunting. A hugely entertaining read, but also an important one in an era when women's rights are being called into question."
