Not That I Could Tell

Authors:
Jessica Strawser
'Fans of Liane Moriarty will adore Jessica Strawser' Kate MorettiEver wonder what your friends really think of you? Drinks in hand, a group of neighbourhood women gather around a fire pit to enjoy a rare child-less Saturday night. Giddy with freedom, they drink too much, share secrets they wish, perhaps, they hadn't, and enjoy getting to know each other better. The single newcomer. The imperfect mom. The new-born parents. The military wife. The almost divorcee.Come Monday Morning, one of them is gone. Everyone knows something about everyone else in the small town of Yellow Springs, but no one can make sense of the disappearance. Kristin was a sociable mother, school administrator, and doctor's wife who didn't seem all that bothered by her impending divorce. When the investigation launches, it turns up more questions than answers - with her soon-to-be-ex-husband, Paul at the centre. For her closest neighbour, Clara, the incident triggers memories she thought she'd put behind her. As the town's scrutiny turns in on her, her own suspicions about what really happened that night quickly grow. Meanwhile, the neighbourhood's newest addition, Izzy, is determined not to jump to any conclusions.But across the lawns, appearances can be deceiving, and the most beautiful houses can hide the ugliest secrets. A truly gripping domestic thriller of friendship, manipulation and betrayal that fans of Desperate Housewives, The Family Next Door and Liane Moriarty's HBO hit Big Little Lies have been waiting for.***************What readers are saying 'Twisty and engrossing, this is one thriller you don't want to miss!''I was gripped and glued to the page' 'I was drawn into the story from the first page and felt like these women were MY friends' 'What a clever page-turner with some great character dynamics and a few twisties that sucked me in and kept me guessing through to the end'

    Never Eat Shredded Wheat

    By Christopher Somerville
    Authors:
    Christopher Somerville
    Bognor Regis...Aberystwyth...Glasgow...Can you place them on a map? Most people can't these days. What kind of countryside do you pass through on your way to the Cairngorms, or the Fens, or Northumberland? What's north of the Pennines? And what's it like when you get there? Most folk wouldn't have a clue. Increasing numbers of us don't have a basic geographical notion of these islands. Blame it on a decline in formal geography teaching, or Sat-Nav and other 'A to Z and nothing in between' devices that make us lazy - we are becoming the best travelled and least well orientated Britons ever seen. Now Christopher Somerville, bestselling author of Coast and many other books of UK exploration, presents the basics of what belongs where, which counties border one another, and what lies beyond the Watford Gap. He reminds us of the watery bits, the lumpy bits and the flat bits, and gets to grips with the smaller islands surrounding Britain - and much more. Never Eat Shredded Wheat is a reminder of all the fascinating British geography once learned at school - geography that brings our islands vividly to life - geography which we have forgotten, or never even knew.
