JEAN FULLERTON Wedding Bells for Nurse Connie
Saga queen Jean Fullerton returns with a delightful new East End novel in the Nurse Connie series. Nurse Connie Byrne has lived and worked through the Second World War, has celebrated its ending with friends and patients in London’s East End, and is now enjoying a fresh new chapter in her life and preparing for her wedding. But, as many a young bride-to-be has proved, the course of true love never did run smooth. . . . Connie’s busy professional life and the ‘characters’ who are her patients, serve to give her a muchneeded sense of perspective. Her work as a nurse in the East End means that she sometimes needs to be tough, ready to face anything – even the nicest of surprises. • A Glimpse at Happiness was shortlisted for the Romantic Novel of the Year Award 2010, while No Cure for Love won the 2006 Harry Bowling Prize. Jean Fullerton is a qualified District and Queen’s Nurse who has spent most of her working life in the East End of London, first as a Sister, and then as a District Nurse tutor. She lectures on community nursing studies at a London university. Her previous novels include No Cure for Love, Call Nurse Millie and Fetch Nurse Connie.

AMI MCKAY The Witches of New York
Compelling, enchanting and utterly unique, The Witches of New York invites you on a journey from high society Manhattan to the hidden voices of the budding suffragette movement, and on to the web of secrets that connects them all. Within the candlelit walls of a room near Madison Square, three witches are alive and well. Eleanor St Clair, Adelaide Thom and Beatrice Dunn have gathered to prepare for an evening in the drawing room of a grand mansion on Fifth Avenue. Without the aid of a medium’s cabinet or false knocks on table or wall, they’ll peer into the future and call upon the dead. They have no need for the trappings of spiritualism. ‘Ready or not, it’s begun . . .’ Ami McKay’s award-winning literary career started with a year of writing thank-you notes to people she didn’t know. Now every day is a writing day. Her previous books are The Virgin Cure and The Birth House.
