The Little Island Secret: An absolutely gripping and heartbreaking page-turner by [Emma Davies]
220

The Little Island Secret by Emma Davies

I catch sight of a familiar face across the street, and my breath stops. I’m not sure any answers he can give me will mend my shattered heart – but I need them anyway. This island has kept its secrets long enough.

When Abby steps off the ferry and onto the isle of Kinlossay, she squeezes her daughter’s hand and prays this trip was not a mistake. For the last year she has been receiving letters from a mysterious stranger detailing every moment of his life on this rugged little island. Swept away by descriptions of buttercups dancing on rolling fields, his words were a lifeline to Abby, filling her grey life with colour. But then, one day, the messages stopped.

Perhaps Abby should have forgotten about the man who gave her hope again, but she’s learned the hard way that she needs to make her own luck in life. She knows what she felt as she read those letters and she owes it to herself and her daughter to find out the truth.

But what if the truth means discovering that nothing about the man you thought you knew is real? When the secret of the island is revealed, will Abby run home to safety, or stay and fight for the life her daughter deserves?


The Girl Who Couldn't Leave: An absolutely uplifting and emotional page-turner by [Catherine Miller]

The Girl Who Couldn’t Leave by Catherine Miller

She hasn’t left her house in five years. Can love unlock the door?

It’s been 1,825 days since Fiona Dexter last set foot outside 14 Wellington Drive.

Five years ago, something happened that changed Fiona forever. Now she is too afraid to walk beyond her front gate.

It’s not the life Fiona had dreamed of but she has made it work, finding happiness in the safe routine of her days. On Mondays she treats herself to a glass of Chardonnay. On Tuesdays she has a working lunch at her desk (usually peanut butter on toast). On Wednesdays and Thursdays, she alternates spinning classes in her shed with yoga in the garden. Saturdays are for tidying up and Sundays are for relaxing in her favourite armchair.

But today is different. Today, her perfectly planned Monday is suddenly interrupted by a knock at the door and a stranger on the other side. Someone who could change everything.

Now Fiona is faced with an impossible choice. Is she brave enough to open the door? And if she does, will it set her free from her past or close her off from the world forever?

Angel Maker: An Unputdownable Scandinavian Crime Thriller With A Chilling Twist (DI Jamie Johansson Book 1) by [Morgan Greene]

Angel Maker by Morgan Greene

Every angel deserves their wings…

When a teenage girl is found dead in the woods, her body posed like an angel, Stockholm holds its breath. The kill bears a chilling resemblance to those of the Angel Maker, a serial killer caught two decades ago…

One who just died in prison.

Detective Inspector Jamie Johansson is taking some much-needed time away from the London Met when the call comes in. Her father, one of Stockholm’s most notorious detectives, caught the Angel Maker when she was just a girl, and Jamie has long since closed the door to that part of her life. But with the original case files missing, the threat of another kill looming, and her father’s reputation at stake, Jamie is drawn back to the frozen streets of her hometown to finish what he started.

Has a copycat emerged? Or did he catch the wrong man all those years ago?

Jamie will have to confront her own dark childhood, as well as the evil stalking the city if she hopes to crack this case find the truth. But with so many secrets buried beneath the snow-laden earth, will she be able to catch the killer before he claims his next victim?

The Angel Maker is back, and a plan twenty years in the making is already in motion.


These choices are just the books that I’d be tempted by rather than just any books that are on offer.
