In Jojo Moyes’ Still Me, Louise Clark moves to New York City and is swept into the upper-echelons of society, where she soon discovers that wealth often comes with a terrible, secretive tax.
Heather Morris is an Australian author whose debut novel The Tattooist of Auschwitz fictionalises the true story of a man who fell in love with a fellow prisoner in Auschwitz. With endorsements from the likes of Graeme Simsion, who has claimed he ‘recommends it unreservedly,’ we are glad to see a new Aussie voice at Number 2 on the bestseller list.
A few weeks ago we ran a full review of A. J. Finn’s thriller The Woman in the Window, an unputdownable tale of mystery about a shut-in called Anna Fox, who spies on her New York neighbours. One night she witnesses a bloodcurdlingly horrible scene and must reconnect with the outside world. With many twists and turns, Finn’s new book is both unpredictable and ravingly distinct.
Inspired by the author’s family history, Kali Napier’s The Secrets at Ocean’s Edge is a haunting, memorable, and moving tale of a family desperate to survive the Depression in the 1930s. We’re always eager for debut fiction, especially written by Aussies – and Kali’s novel is currently enjoying its first week on the bestseller list, at Number 7.
There are of course some familiar names, such as J. D. Robb (Nora Roberts’ crime pen-name) with Dark in Death, Danielle Steel’s latest Fall From Grace. Lee Child’s immensely popular Jack Reacher series is continued with The Midnight Line.
