The paperback for Anna Jacobs' new standalone, Kirsty's Vineyard, was published last week, a beautiful and heart-warming story from the million-copy bestseller.
In the aftermath of a heart-breaking accident, Kirsty is shocked to discover that she has inherited a vineyard in Western Australia from Ed James, a lonely old man she befriended at the library. But there is a condition to his legacy: Kirsty must give up her quiet life in England and live at the vineyard for a least one year.
How will a shy librarian cope on her own in a strange country? As she is forced to take her life off hold, one thing is certain, Kirsty's life is about to change for ever.

Could this be a random attack, or a pre-planned assassination? When information comes to light of a link to feuding drug-dealing families in Manchester, Charley’s team need to act rapidly. They need to find – and apprehend – those responsible. Fast.
