The Three Dahlias

Three rival actresses, who have all played Golden Age sleuth Dahlia Lively over the years, join forces to unmask a killer in a stately home in this cosy crime pastiche. They have to put aside their differences when fictional death makes way for real bodies.

Happy Place 
Emily Henry

Death of a Bookseller
Alice Slater

Tara M Stringfellow

This is the story of three generations of women from a family in Memphis – no strangers to adversity, and resilience runs in their veins. The story begins when Joan returns to her family’s home for the first time since she was a child, and celebrates the enduring strength of family bonds. 

The Maid
Nita Prose

Molly the Maid turns amateur sleuth in this page-turning whodunit. In the Regency Grand Hotel, Molly discovers Mr Black dead in his bed and becomes entangled in the search for the truth about what happened to him. 

Shrines of Gaiety
Kate Atkinson

Set in Jazz Age London and filled with larger-than-life characters, this unforgettable novel tells the tale of Nellie Croker, who oversees an empire of the capital’s nightlife. The great and good rub shoulders with gangsters, starlets and dancing girls in this glittering tale, with darkness at its heart.
