Book Review: The Secret by Kathryn Hughes (published by Headline Review)
The Secret is an easy, enjoyable, quick read which has a lovely ending (and don’t we all need a HEA every now and then!). It is set partly in 2016 and partly in the mid-70s and tells of an event in the seventies that remained secret for decades, only coming to light after the death of Beth’s mother Mary.
Audiobook Review: The Girls by Emma Cline (published by Random House)
The Girls is set in Northern California in the late sixties and this novel contrasts the dreamy, hazy summer days, the drug taking and relaxed hippy vibes of that time with the violent, senseless murders carried out by members of a cult. It is loosely based on the real events of the murders committed by Charles Manson and his cult in 1969.
Book Review: Florence Grace by Tracy Rees (published by Quercus)
I had the great pleasure of meeting the author Tracy Rees at an inspiring and informative Marie Claire and Bookends event in London. We were split into smaller discussion groups and Tracy headed up mine. She was encouraging and gave some insightful advice. I was lucky enough to receive a copy of her second novel Florence Grace as part of my ticket to that event (along with novels from the other authors there which I’ll read soon!).
