A BRIEF AFFAIR Margaret Leroy
September 1940. England is at war and London has become an ever-fragile place for widowed Livia Ripley and her two young daughters, Polly and Eliza. When Livia meets charismatic publisher Hugo Ballantyne, she is hopeful that her life is about to change for the better. But as clouds gather in the autumn sky, the wail of the siren heralds the arrival of the Luftwaffe. Livia volunteers to be a warden and finds the reality and despair of war a contrast to the comfort of the Balfour Hotel with Hugo. Livia soon discovers a strength she never knew she had, which gives her the power to save those she loves.

BULLSEYE James Patterson & Michael Ledwidge
As the most powerful men on earth gather in New York for a meeting of the UN, Detective Michael Bennett receives intelligence warning that there will be an assassination attempt on the US president.

Tensions between America and Russia are the highest they’ve been since the Cold War, but this would be an escalation no one could have expected. The details are shadowy, and Bennett finds false leads and unreliable sources at every turn. But he can’t afford to get this wrong. If the plotters succeed, the shockwaves will be felt across the globe.
