Disturbance

Author: Marianne Kavanagh Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 11/07/2019

You don't know what's going on in Sara's house...Or in her head. Sara is lonely. No one talks to her - not even her bad-tempered workaholic husband or her two beloved sons. Her solace is her house, the biggest in the village, hidden away behind high hedges. Then she strikes up a friendship with Katie, a college student living nearby, and a new world opens up. Her neighbours have been dying to get to know her, and they rush to help when Sara is devastated by a terrible accident. But nothing is quite what it seems. And when new betrayals and shocking revelations disturb her peace, Sara realises she has no choice: she must act to protect the safety of those she loves.

Jenn Ashworth, author of Fell 'A massively enjoyable book - creepy, funny, surprising and absolutely unputdownable... My only wish is that I hadn't finished it so quickly.' Daisy Waugh 'I raced through it. Dark, tense and very twisty.' Tamsin Grey, author of She's Not There

Should You Ask Me

Author: Marianne Kavanagh Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 31/05/2018

'So much period atmosphere, you can practically hear the air-raid sirens.' Daily Mail [An] ingenious page-turner' The Lady 'A delight' Guinevere Glasfurd 'I've come about the bodies. I know who they are.' Mary is eighty-six years old, and she's tired of being quiet. She has a story to tell, and she's only going to tell it once, so she won't be rushed. Especially as it's not just a story, it's a confession. Because Mary has a dark secret, buried decades before. And while William, the nice young constable, might think she just wants someone to talk to, everything she says forces him to confront his own difficult past. A unique and poignant novel about passion, regret and heartbreak, set during one of the most tumultuous periods of modern British history.

Should You Ask Me

Author: Marianne Kavanagh Format: Hardback Release Date: 16/05/2017

'I've come about the bodies. I know who they are.' Just before D-Day in 1944, on the Isle of Purbeck in Dorset, an elderly woman walks into a police station. She has information, she says, about human remains recently discovered nearby. The bodies could have stayed buried for ever - like the pain and passion that put them there. But Mary Holmes is finally ready to tell the truth. The young constable sent to take her statement is still suffering from the injuries that ended his army career. As he tries to make sense of her tale, William finds himself increasingly distracted. Mary's confession forces his own violent memories to the surface - betrayals and regrets as badly healed as his war wounds. Over six days, as pressure builds for the final push in Europe, two lives reveal their secrets. Should You Ask Me is a captivating story about people at their worst and best: raw, rich, and utterly compelling.
