The Girl Before – JP Delaney

Described as the latest Gone Girl or Girl on the Train, this enthralling new psychological thriller is a must-have for this year’s reading list.

The story unfolds the lives of Emma, the girl who lived in One Folgate Street before, and Jane the current tenant of the property. Both women thought the property was the rental opportunity of a lifetime, living amongst the beauty and minimalist style of an enigmatic architect, however after moving in, Jane discovers that the previous tenant died a mysterious death there – and starts to wonder if her own story will be a re-run of the girl before.

A heart-warming, moving and uplifting read that will stay with you for a long time after you’ve finished.

Kids’ Book of the Month

Radio Boy – Christian O’Connell

We love discovering great books from new authors so we’re really happy when Radio Boy turned out to be one of the funniest books we’d read in ages.

It’s the story of Spike, an ordinary boy who fights for his dream, and with an idea from his Dad and the support of his two best friends, sets up a radio station and under the alias “Radio Boy” he broadcasts live from his garden shed. It looks like he’s a star in the making, but will his popularity go to his head and will he get found out? With rave reviews coming in every day this is a hilarious debut, and we hope the first of many brilliant books from Christian O’Connell.
