THE GOOD LIARS BY ANITA FRANK
Taking us back in time to the hot summer of 1914, where it all started. A boy vanishes never to be seen again, and with little information on what actually happened, he case is closed and forgotten. Six years later, an inspector visits the home of the Stilwell family with new evidence that leads to the boy’s case being reopened and all hell breaks loose. The Stilwell family find their already troubled lives in the middle of it, as they are placed under excruciating police scrutiny. If you’re looking for a thrilling summer read, this one is an addictive, ‘edge-of-your-seat’ mystery.

MY THERAPIST GHOSTED ME
To think that all of this started with one flaky therapist who refused to answer Joanne’s calls, would not open the door no matter how many times she knocked, and
flat out refused to speak to her once she tracked him down as he was scattering his Aunt’s ashes… Well, who needs therapists when you have friends, and there isn’t a greater duo than Joanne McNally and Vogue Williams. Lots of laughter, honest advice and incredible stories for an entertaining summer.
“One must maintain a little bit of summer, even in the middle of winter.”
