Katherine Stansfield recommends
The Golden Key (2020)
Marian Womack
"A beguiling mystery that lingers long after reading, much like the unsettling mists of the fens that creep through this story. The Golden Key mesmerizes, offers a door to another world - one which casts an uncanny light on our own self-destruction."
The Evil Within (2020)
(Dark Devon Mysteries, book 1)
S M Hardy
"This is a novel that gets under your skin, and if you can put it down you ll think twice about turning out the lights."
