              The sun hung low in the sky, casting pink light all over the city. A faint breeze blew over the rooftops, as flocks of starlings swirled above her, swooping and diving in unison. It seemed unimaginable that, even now, German soldiers were marching along the streets below. It was ...time, she decided, for direct action. It was time to fight back. Each morning Livia Moretti makes her way from an apartment overlooking Florence's famous Duomo to a nearby cafe, where she drinks espresso and reads the newspaper. To the crowds of tourists who pass by, snapping selfies, nothing about Livia will be memorable. She is simply an old lady. They walk on without knowing the part she played in ensuring the future of this beautiful city. And to Livia now, those dark days feel very far away too. But today, when she opens the paper, she sees a name she has not heard for a long time. A name that will bring memories flooding back of Nazi troops marching through the city and the dangers she faced as a young woman, carrying out secret missions for the resistance. Isabella Bellucci. A siren of the silver screen, Isabella cultivated all the right connections to ensure her rise to stardom. But when Rome falls to the Nazis, Isabella is suddenly faced with the choice between protecting herself, and all she has worked for, or sacrificing everything to save the man she loves. As the war rages across Europe, a terrible misunderstanding causes the fates of Isabella and Livia to become forever intertwined. And each woman must decide what they're willing to risk, to protect the ones they hold dear from a brutal enemy. Inspired by the incredible true stories of two women in wartime Italy, this is a heart-wrenching and unforgettable tale of love, resistance, betrayal and hope. Fans of Kate Furnivall, Fiona Valpy and My Name is Eva will be absolutely gripped by this sweeping Second World War novel. Praise for Debbie Rix: 'Incredibly heart-wrenching... it's just mind-blowing... I adored this book from star

              I'll never forget the night when everything changed. I saw the first glimmers of daylight over the roofs from the window before I heard it. We were used to air raids by then and I recognised German engines, but something felt different this time. They were closer than I'd ever he...ard them before... Devon, 1940: When fifteen-year-old Daisy is evacuated from her home in London, she knows she must look after her younger sister Peggy. She is the only one who can reassure Peggy that life will go back to normal, reading to her from their one battered children's book, ensuring she takes the cough medicine their mother tucked in the pocket of her gas mask bag. But when the sisters' new home is suddenly bombed, they are taken into the countryside, and Daisy quickly realises that not everyone at home is on the right side of the war. Forced to work in fields alongside orphan children, she finds herself drawn to a young boy called John, who has tried and failed to escape many times before. Then Peggy gets sick and Daisy knows that, to save her life, they must run away. But now Peggy is not the only one Daisy is desperate to protect. As war rages all around, Daisy learns that sometimes you have to sacrifice everything if you want to save the people you love. And that the choices you make in your darkest days will affect your family for generations to come... Perfect for fans of Lisa Wingate, Diney Costeloe and Shirley Dickson, The Runaway Sisters is a tale of heartwrenching loss and uplifting courage. It's a story about family, and the light that can be found in the dark clouds of war. What readers are saying about Ann Bennett: 'Oh my goodness. What an amazing story of life, love, loss and finding yourself... Awe inspiring. I honestly am left reeling. This is my first book from this author, although it definitely will not be my last. Thank you for a journey that I will not soon forget.' Goodreads reviewer, 5 stars 'An amazing and spellbinding read. Exceptionally well done. I hate

              When she was just twelve years old, Mackenzie Price came home to find her father bleeding to death on the kitchen floor. She will never forget that night, nor what her mother asked her to do... Twenty years later, Detective 'Mack' Price is back in Lakemore, despite vowing never t...o return. Determined to atone for the sins of the past, she is unstoppable in her quest for justice. When eighteen-year-old Abigail Correia goes missing, Mack is convinced that the case is linked to Erica Perez, who disappeared exactly one year before. Unlike Abby, Erica is the daughter of one of the town's most powerful men, but still no trace of her has been found. As Mack endeavours to find Abby and bring her back alive, she and her team unearth a shocking secret at the heart of this small town.

              Caroline sighed. She longed to be away from here, from the rain and barren hills and bitter winds, with nothing ever happening. It was as if she'd spent her whole life waiting for something truly exciting... 1832, Scotland: When Caroline Reid is offered the chance to travel to Am...erica to live with her estranged uncle, she has only two things on her mind: to become the belle of Boston society and to make an enviable--and financially advantageous--match. But from the moment her journey begins, things do not go as she expects. From the seasickness on her Atlantic crossing, to the unexpected friendship she strikes up with a young widow named Eleanor, the Caroline who set sail for the New World isn't quite the same person who arrives there... Then she meets Eleanor's brother, Ian Campbell, and her rebel heart cannot help but beat faster. Even though he doesn't have a fortune, Caroline's feelings overwhelm her earlier ambitions. However, her uncle--who had so gallantly invited her to live in his house--has other plans. And he will stop at absolutely nothing to get what he wants... An unmissable story about friendship, courage and impossible choices for fans of Diana Gabaldon, Tamera Alexander and Poldark. Previously published as Another Country.

              'Detective Thomas, there's no easy way to say this. We've brought Debbie in for questioning.' 'You mean my sister Debbie? What are you talking about? You've arrested my sister?' 'Megan, she's our prime suspect.' Detective Megan Thomas hoped that moving to Devon would mean a quiet... life. Her years undercover in London left her broken and alone, unsure if she would ever recover. Slowly, she's learning to work with a team and trust other people. But when her sister Debbie finds the body of local businessman Greg Porter, that peace is shattered. Porter's wife and children don't seem entirely grief-stricken, and his business dealings are not all they appear to be. So why are the police so determined to focus on Debbie? And why is she acting so suspiciously? When Megan learns what happened between Porter and Debbie, it threatens to tear the family apart, and forces her to ask if her beloved sister could really have done something so terrible. Her boss won't allow her anywhere near the case, leaving Megan on the sidelines. Caught between the job she loves, and what she feels she must do, Megan finds herself faced with an impossible decision. She's desperate to save her sister, but what if Debbie is lying? When a second body and a surprise confession takes the case into even muddier waters, Megan must decide where her loyalty lies - with her family, or the truth.

              One three letter word. One very big mess. For Hailey Kidd, the answer to almost every question has always been 'yes.' And that's worked out pretty well for her so far. She has a boyfriend she loves, the very best friends a girl could ask for and most importantly of all, she's jus...t landed the assistant's job for the most powerful woman in her industry, Vivian Jones. Has Hailey Kidd got it made? There is only one answer to that question. Except that the dream job isn't quite what Hailey was expecting and that habit of saying yes to everyone is about to land her in some very hot water. Late one night in the office, while doing a favour for one of her colleagues, Hailey sees Vivian doing something she really shouldn't be. And certainly not with who she's doing it with. Vivian asks Hailey to keep what she's seen just between them and Hailey doesn't have any choice but to agree if she wants to keep her job. But with this secret binding them together, Hailey starts to see the woman she always thought of as 'having it all' in a whole new light and question every choice she's ever made. With the knots she's tied herself into in her attempt to be the perfect girlfriend, the best friend and ace things at work pushing her to breaking point, can Hailey finally learn the importance of saying no? Fans of Mhairi McFarlane, Holly Bourne and The Devil Wears Prada will adore this funny, heart-felt and honest look at navigating those moments in life where you reach a crossroads and have to decide who and what it is you want to be.

              There's nothing like a summer escape. A sun-kissed story about living life to the full. In the month from hell, incurable optimist Anna has lost her father and her job, and her trademark smile is dimming. Clearing out her dad's house, she discovers a postcard of a beautiful sandy... beach and a map with a route plotted to the Greek island of Kefalonia. With an empty summer stretching ahead, Anna's eyes stray to her father's old camper van. Next thing she knows, she's hitting the road with friend Demi in tow, on a course from Salford to Skala! Over one unforgettable summer, Anna and Demi make their rickety way along the sparkling Mediterranean coast, the hot sun shining down on their frequent mishaps with cheerful local characters. It's the trip of a lifetime, and the scent of lemons in the air - as well as an unexpected romance - are just what Anna needs to awaken her inner Greek goddess. But there are big surprises in store when they arrive at the island paradise, which could change both women's lives forever. And as summer comes to an end, Anna has to decide whether she has had enough of the Greek life, or whether this is only just the beginning... A joyful, hilarious summer read, perfect for fans of Carole Matthews, Jenny Colgan and Sophie Kinsella. Readers adore Sue Roberts: 'I absolutely LOVED, no make that ADORED, reading it...

              Annie Martin is thrilled to have moved from the hectic buzz of L.A. to the small town of Hillsboro, Northern California, where the most happening bar only plays honky-tonk and nowhere does a good matcha latte. But the best thing about Hillsboro? The Anderson sisters. At their noi...sy family dinners, Annie can almost forget the mistakes she made back in the city, trying to fit in. Annie has repaid the sisters' friendship with some obvious-but-effective matchmaking and now there's only one Anderson still looking for love. But Rose is surprisingly prickly about an enforced happy-ever-after, and when a meticulously planned meet-cute ends drenched in the town fountain, Annie realizes this project calls for someone with a deeper knowledge of the Hillsboro bachelors. Local reporter and all-around grouch George Barnett has been a thorn in Annie's side since she came to town. He knows all too well that everyone has secrets and he thinks the story of why social media darling Annie Martin swapped stilettos for sneakers might be the scoop that makes his career. Annie is sure her skeletons are under triple lock and key, so she offers him an exclusive, if he'll help her find a match for Rose. But the more George and Annie try to control the love lives around them, the less they're able to sway their own hearts. As Annie's infectious laugh begins to bring down George's barrier of surliness, can he open his heart and let her in for real? And can Annie be brave enough to trust the man who could be her future, with the secrets of her past? A heart-warming story of friendship and finding love in the most unlikely of places, fans of Robyn Carr, Debbie Macomber and Carolyn Brown will adore The Perfect Hideaway. What readers are saying about Alys Murray: This was truly the PERFECT sweet romance! I fell in love with Harper and the other Andersons immediately, and could almost smell flowers blooming around me as I read... Murray created an adorable, quirky small town that felt like home. Goo
