Louise Douglas is a journalist and lives near Bristol with her three children. Her first novel, The Love of My Life, was followed in February 2010 by Missing You.
Annie Howarth is living a restless life in a restless town. The mining strikes mean tensions are already running high, but when a murdered girl is found on the moors the community's anxiety levels are pushed to breaking point. Married to the Chief of Police, Annie should feel safe - William can be secretive, but surely whatever he's hiding is for her own good. But Annie is keeping her own secrets. Ten years ago the man she loved was ripped from her life in a scandal that still haunts the both of them, and his return has led her to put everything she has at risk...An atmospheric and suspenseful novel you'll find impossible to put down, from the talented Richard & Judy bestseller.
One of our Great Reads You May Have Missed in 2012. Louise's books (this is her third) go from strength to strength. The Secrets Between Us is an exciting modern day gothic story full of drama, suspense, romance and quite a few heart-stopping moments. A chance encounter on holiday, for Sarah, seem to hold a chance of escape from an unfaithful husband and a recent stillborn baby but all is not so perfect in the rural paradise she moves to.
Winner of the RNA People’s Choice Award 2010. Haunted by guilt, Fen lives a compromised life, too afraid of the past to risk becoming close to anyone. She is constantly looking over her shoulder, knowing that one day the truth will catch up with her. A quiet developing friendship with Sean slowly helps her to trust again. But will the past tear them apart just as they find happiness?
Get the tissues out and prepare to have a good old weep with this one. The outcome is known from the start but the writing compels you to read what inevitably will be a sad story of love and loss. This is a stunning debut, which shows great promise.
