FIONA FORD The Spark Girl’s Promise

Full of wartime adventure, romance and heartbreak, this is perfect for fans of Daisy styles and Kate Thompson.

January 1941. Peggy Collins has learned a lot during her time as a Spark Girl. Now posted to Swansea, she is a driver to the squadron leader. She often hears things she shouldn’t and knows to be discreet, understanding how serious the phrase ‘loose lips sink ships’ really is.

When Peggy meets and falls in love with pilot Jim Hudson her heart is soon broken as he becomes missing in action and presumed dead overseas. But there are more shocks and surprises in store for Peggy and she is left remembering promises made long ago. Can she keep her word in times of war?

Fiona Ford was born in Cornwall and grew up in Bath. Fiona always had a huge interest in history and adored hearing her grandfather talk about his time in the war. Now Fiona has combined her love of writing with her love of days gone by in the Spark Girls series.

MASON CROSS Presumed Dead

Mason Cross, author of The Samaritan, a Richard & Judy book Club pick, returns with his gripping new thriller – perfect for fans of lee Child, David baldacci and Mark billingham.

Fifteen years ago, an unidentified killer terrorised northern Georgia, killing hikers with two shots from a pistol, before disposing of the bodies along the remote trails of Blood Mountain. The killer was never brought to justice.

Now, Carter Blake comes across a case in Georgia, where someone is convinced their relative is still alive, fifteen years on.

Adeline Connor was the Blood Mountain Killer’s last suspected victim. She vanished without trace.

So why is her brother so convinced she’s still alive?
