Killer Look
New York City is one of the fashion
capitals of the world, well known
for its glamour and style. Yet
high fashion means high stakes,
as Alex Cooper quickly discovers
when businessman and designer
Wolf Savage is found dead in an
apparent suicide, days before the
biggest show of his career. When
Savage's daughter insists his death
was murder, the case becomes a
media sensation. With her own job
at the DA's office in jeopardy, and
spiralling into reliance on alcohol,
Alex is not anyone's first choice
for help. But she is determined
to uncover the grime – and the
possible homicide – beneath the
glitz. Soon she and police detectives Mike Chapman and Mercer Wallace are investigating the family secrets Savage kept so well hidden, even from those closest to him...

The Keeper Of Lost Things
Anthony Peardew is the Keeper
of Lost Things. Forty years ago he
carelessly lost a keepsake from
his beloved Therese. That very
same day, she died unexpectedly.
Broken-hearted, Anthony sought
consolation in rescuing lost
objects – the things others have
dropped, misplaced, or accidentally
left behind – and writing stories
about them. Now, in the twilight
of his life, he worries that he has
not fully discharged his duty to
reconcile all the lost things with
their owners. As the end nears, he
bequeaths his secret life's mission
to his unsuspecting housekeeper
Laura, the one person he can trust
to fulfil his legacy. But the final wishes of the Keeper of Lost Things have unforeseen repercussions that trigger a most serendipitous series of encounters...

How To Find Love In A Book Shop
Nightingale Books, nestled on the
high street in the idyllic Cotswold
town of Peasebrook, is a dream
come true for booklovers. But owner
Emilia Nightingale is struggling to
keep the shop open. The temptation
to sell up is proving enormous – but
what about the promise she made
to her father? Not to mention the
loyalty she owes to her customers.
One of them, Sarah Basildon, has
used the shop as an escape from all
her problems in the past few years.
But is there more to her visits than
meets the eye? And then there's
Thomasina, painfully shy, who runs
a pop-up restaurant from her tiny
cottage. She has a huge crush on a
man she met and then lost in the cookery section. Can she find the courage to admit her true feelings?
“A warm-hearted, lovely read.” CLOSER
