A Rising Man by Abir Mukherjee
It's 1948 and the nurses of the East End of London are making the most of life post-war. For Connie, things are looking rosy as she looks forward to planning a future with her sweetheart, Malcolm. But, as many a young bride-to-be has proved, the course of true love never did run smooth and Connie has to grapple with interfering mothers and Malcolm's reluctance to set the date. Life at work isn't all smooth sailing either. The newly-formed NHS is keeping the nurses of Fry House extremely busy, but new faces keep things interesting. And one in particular might be the answer to all of Connie's problems.

The Girl Of Ink & Stars by Kiran Milwood Hargrave
Jack Reacher walks alone. Once a go-to hard man in the US military police, now he's a drifter of no fixed abode. But the army tracks him down. Because someone has taken a long-range shot at the French president. Only one man could have done it. And Reacher is the one man who can find him. This new heart-stopping, nail-biting book takes Reacher across the Atlantic to Paris - and then to London. The stakes have never been higher - because this time, it's personal.
