Her Watchful Eye: A gripping thriller full of shocking twists
The stunning new thriller, from the bestselling author of What Goes Around. For fans of The Girlfriend and Behind Closed Doors. 'A heartfelt story of deception, obsession and love, both heart breaking and compulsive' Jenny Blackhurst Ruby lives alone in the house she once shared with her husband. By day she sleeps and by night she watches people. She's a CCTV operator, trained to spot early signs of danger. But some things are impossible to predict. One night, through the eye of the camera, Ruby sees a girl she thought she would never see again. Secretly, harmlessly, Ruby starts to watch her. Until just watching isn't enough . . . Then someone finds out what she's been up to and things spiral out of her control. In the end, one person will end up behind bars, and another will end up dead. *********************** Reader reviews 'Don't pick this up if you want to be able to put it down again!'

Girl With Dove: A Life Built By Books
`The word mesmerising is frequently applied to memoirs, but seldom as deservedly as in the case of Girl With Dove' Financial Times `Reading is a form of escape and an avid reader is an escape artist...' Brilliantly original, funny and clever Honor Clark, Spectator, Book of the Year Growing up in a dilapidated house by the sea where men were forbidden, Sally's childhood world was filled with mystery and intrigue. Hippies trailed through the kitchen looking for God - their leader was Aunt Di, who ruled the house with charismatic force. When Sally's baby brother vanishes from his pram, she becomes suspicious of the activities going on around her. What happened to Baby David and the woman called Poor Sue? And where did all the people singing and wailing prayers in the front room suddenly go? Disappearing into a world of books and reading, Sally adopts the tried and tested methods of Miss Marple. Taking books for hints and clues, she turns herself into a reading detective. Her discovery of Jane Eyre marks the beginning of a vivid journey through Victorian literature where she also finds the kind, eccentric figure of Charles Dickens' Betsey Trotwood. These characters soon become her heroines, acting as a part of an alternative family, offering humour and guidance during many difficult moments in Sally's life. Combining the voices of literary characters with those of her real-life counterparts, Girl With Dove reads as a magical series of strange encounters, climaxing with a comic performance of Shakespeare in the children's home where Sally is eventually sent. Weaving literary classics with a young girl's coming of age story, this is a book that testifies to the transformative power of reading and the literary imagination. Mixing fairy tale, literary classics, nursery rhymes and folklore, it is the story of a child's adventure in wonderland and search for truth in an adult world often cast in deep shadow.

A Liverpool Secret
Liverpool, 1932: Can a chance meeting lead to a fresh start? Lillian Taylor dreams of a world beyond the locked gates of the convent orphanage where she grew up. For ten years she has learned to survive without love, facing the cruel whims and hard faith of the Mother Superior. But the arrival of a glamorous visitor changes everything. Claiming to be her aunt, Anna Ainsley offers Lilian a home in one of Liverpool's smartest streets, and a future the lonely teenager never could have imagined. To grasp it, Lilian must open her heart, and learn the rules of a world she's been taught to believe is full of sin and danger. Sophisticated, wealthy and full of ideas about what a young woman can achieve, Anna turns Lilian's world upside down. In return, Lilian will show Anna that birth and wealth can't buy a good heart. But can she seize her chance of happiness without facing the secrets of her past? A gripping and heartwarming family saga that is perfect for fans of Nadine Dorries, Katie Flynn and Rosie Goodwin.

Where Has Mummy Gone?: A young girl and a mother who no longer knows her
The true story of Melody, aged 8, the last of five siblings to be taken from her drug dependent single mother and brought into care. When Cathy is told about Melody's terrible childhood, she is sure she's heard it all before. But it isn't long before she feels there is more going on than she or the social services are aware of. Although Melody is angry at having to leave her mother, as many children coming into care are, she also worries about her obsessively - far more than is usual. Amanda, Melody's mother, is also angry and takes it out on Cathy at contact, which again is something Cathy has experienced before. Yet there is a lost and vulnerable look about Amanda, and Cathy starts to see why Melody worries about her and feels she needs looking after. When Amanda misses contact, it is assumed she has forgotten, but nothing could have been further from the truth...

Missing Pieces
Missing Pieces is the story of twins, Kristine, and Katy, and of the lives that they have, after being adopted as babies, because their teenage mother cannot keep them. The babies are separated, because two desperate couples each want to adopt both of them. It explores the way the girls feel, being brought up by parents, that they find that they have very little in common with, as far as their physical appearance is concerned. It shows how a person can become lost, because they aren't sure just exactly who they are. It shows how, despite having been apart, up to the age of fifteen, the twins both feel that they have had each other, missing from their own lives. Also when they do meet, someone they are related to by birth, they automatically know, in their hearts that they are related to that person, and the DNA test is just for confirmation
