LoveReading View on The Elephant Girl

A fast-moving romantic thriller set around an auction house and possible illegal trading. We think it’s another hit from small publisher Choc Lit. Twenty years after witnessing her mother’s murder, and living in India, Helen is still struggling to come to terms with the loss. Then she find out the woman convicted of the murder has been released from prison and she goes home to London to try to put some ghosts to rest.

Following on from Henriette’s successful debut, Up Close, this is another gripping thriller.

 

 

Choc Lit, the publisher of this novel, was the 2012 Publisher of the Year as voted for by the Festival of Romance.
