There’s a rush of fabulous new books out this month – lots to keep you busy reading!

It’s the first day of spring (technically!) are some hot crime novels to keep you guessing from amongst others, Patricia Gibney, Sam Blake and today’s featured author, Jo Spain. International bestseller and a lady with some impressive screen credits to her name (and more to come), Jo Spain knows all about plot! Six Wicked Reasons is a real page turner – here’s the blurb:

It’s June 2008 and twenty-one-year-old Adam Lattimer vanishes, presumed dead. The strain of his disappearance breaks his already fragile family.

Ten years later, with his mother deceased and siblings scattered across the globe, Adam turns up unannounced at the family home. His siblings return reluctantly to Spanish Cove, but Adam’s reappearance poses more questions than answers. The past is a tangled web of deceit.

And, as tension builds, it’s apparent somebody has planned murderous revenge for the events of ten years ago…

You’ll be guessing to the last page!
