Thank you to Shots blog for reviewing Annie Taylor's The Truth About Her, published next month!
"This book can be absorbing and disconcerting in equal measure. The quality of the writing, the cadence and structure of the involved plot excite readers and draw them inexorably and quickly page after page."
See the full review here.
Essie Fox's most recent novel, The Fascination, was published last week. If you like dark, gothic, historical mysteries, this one's for you! The book was also selected by The Times as one of the 'Best New Historical Fiction' for 2023.
Twins, Keziah and Tilly Lovell, are identical in every way, except that Tilly hasn't grown a single inch since she was five. Coerced into promoting their father’s quack elixir, the girls are eventually sold to a mysterious Italian, known only as ‘Captain’.
Also published last week was the paperback for the second in Adam Simcox's 'The Dying Squad' series: The Generation Killer.
There's a new serial killer on the streets of Manchester - and only a dead cop can stop them.
Detective Joe Lazarus works for the Dying Squad, solving crimes the living police can't. When the Generation Killer starts wiping out Manchester's innocents, Joe and his new partner Bits have mere hours to catch the murderer. A young woman's life depends on it.
Her predecessor the Duchess can't help this time; she's tracked her treacherous sister, Hanna, to Tokyo, where she's been recruiting the dead. The Duchess must enlist the help of a local detective if she's to have any choice of stopping her.
Time is running out for the Dying Squad. And if they can't crack their cases, it's the living that will pay...

The final book published last week was A Secret Cornish Summer by Phillipa Ashley, the brand new armchair holiday read from our reigning Cornish Queen!
When Eden steps out of her beautiful coastal cottage to find a Speedo-wearing, suntanned stranger doing yoga in next door’s garden, she is immediately on her guard. Since her ex-husband betrayed her in the worst possible ways, she has kept her distance from all men, taking refuge in her start-up coffee business.
As the secrets spill out, relationships old and new will be tested like never before.
Can Eden learn to trust again, and move past all the secrets of this Cornish summer?
