Kate Simants recommends
The Last to Know (2020)
Jo Furniss
"The atmosphere of The Last to Know is intensity itself. A book in which a landscape is elevated to the status of a major character is a rare thing, but Furniss pulls this off with enviable finesse. Powerful, assured writing fires up the engines of this juggernaut of a plot from the very first page. I fell for Rose and Ellie in a big way!"
Call Me Mummy (2021)
Tina Baker
"A peerlessly original thriller, pushing at the sore edges of motherhood and childlessness. I read it with my free hand over my mouth and my heart in knots. Spectacular."
