Arabella Weir "Stupid Cupid"

Why do we always want something even more when we can’t have it? Hat Grant is getting married. She is having a proper, big wedding. That is until something goes wrong. Six weeks before the day her fiancé Jimmy Mack dumps her. Hat is devastated. It can’t be happening. This is her special day. She can’t cancel everything – what about the flowers, her dress, the photographer, the caterers, her ghastly mother? So, she doesn’t. She decides to go ahead with the wedding plans come what may. Can anything stop Hat from her descent into madness or is she spiraling towards the world’s first solo wedding ceremony? Stupid Cupid is a wicked , laugh-out-loud comedy about denial, blind hope and wanting something you can’t have.

Louisa May Alcott "Little Women"

But with their father away at war and their mother working to support the family, they have to rely on each other. Whether they’re putting on a play, forming a secret society or celebrating Christmas, there’s one thing they can’t help wondering. Will father return home safely?

Sally Spedding "Wringland"

Abbie Parker has just started her new job as sales negotiator for a prestige housing development in sinister and vaporous Black Fen – rumoured to be the most haunted corner of England. One morning she arrives to find her office door ajar and a strangely dressed woman waiting inside, intent on laying claim to just one particular plot.

As the days go by Abbie has further strange experiences both on the building site itself and in the surrounding wet-lands. Not only must she cope with the unwelcome attentions of a weird local clergyman and the erratic behaviour of her visiting boyfriend Simon but also with a hazy sense that she is now somehow in conflict with the vengeful spirit of a woman betrayed over a century earlier.

After the terror of risking her life by befriending the cleric’s disturbed little daughter, Abbie finally enjoys a brief period of happiness with Simon. But can their mere human love and courage prove sufficient – as both are drawn deeper into the profoundest evil?
