Imogen Robertson recommends
The Coffin Path (2018)
Katherine Clements
"A chilling and disturbing tale of unusual power. The rich, textured writing delivers a gripping sense of time and place. I was convinced, transfixed, transported and I'll be keeping these characters close to me for a long time to come."
The Key in the Lock (2022)
Beth Underdown
"I was completely enthralled by this poetic, beautifully conceived and executed mystery full of secrets and subtlety."
The Plant Hunter (2022)
T L Mogford
"The Plant Hunter is a feast for the senses and a must for every reader who enjoys great adventure writing. The exuberant life in these pages and the drama of the story along with Mogford's lively engaging writing make this a life-enhancing pleasure to read. Be swept away."
