LOVE LETTERS IN THE SAND June Francis
Liverpool, 1958: Nursery nurse Irene Miller falls for her friend Peggy’s handsome older brother, Marty. But he is trapped in an unhappy marriage. Meanwhile, Irene’s friend Peggy is desperate to marry her long-term boyfriend Pete, but Peggy’s staunchly Catholic parents would never accept a Protestant son-in-law. When her mother decides to remarry, her brother heads off to sea, and she loses her job, Irene feels utterly alone in the world. An unexpected job offer from America offers her a lifeline. But it would mean never seeing Marty again. Will Irene and Peggy ever solve their problems by running away – or should they follow their hearts back home to Liverpool?

SNOWBALLS AND SCOTCH MIST Andrea Frazer
In the third Belchester Chronicle, Lady Amanda Golightly receives an invitation to spend Burns’ Night with friends in Scotland. Although she is dismissive of the idea, her chum Hugo is thrilled at the thought and persuades her to agree to the trip. With Beauchamp, her long-suffering manservant, and her friend, Enid Tweedie, the four head to Rumdrummond Castle for a ‘wee break’. Before long, however, murder enters their lives once more, and they begin to suspect some very dirty dealing is going on under the respectable veneer of castle life. Bagpipes, haggis, tartan, and kilts all make their appearance, as dastardly deeds are done amidst a snowy landscape.

DOCTOR OF THE HIGH FELLS Elizabeth Gill
Prue’s heart beat hard - she had heard of the low seams of the mines of northwest Durham and she had always had a fear of being enclosed. She picked up her bag and followed them to the cage which carried the miners below ground, praying that the man did not die, that she need not produce some miracle . . . This is the story of Prue Stanhope, a young woman doctor, who escapes a loveless marriage to journey far from home and join a surgery in Tow Law, County Durham. There are long hours and limited resources, but gaining the townspeople’s trust will be her greatest challenge of all.
