Forsaking All Other by Catherine Meyrick


Forsaking All Other 

has RECEIVED a


Chill with a Book READERS’ Award



England 1585.

Bess Stoughton, waiting woman to the well-connected Lady Allingbourne, has discovered that her father is arranging for her to marry an elderly neighbour. Normally obedient Bess rebels and wrests from her father a year’s grace to find a husband more to her liking.
Edmund Wyard, a taciturn and scarred veteran of England’s campaign in Ireland, is attempting to ignore the pressure from his family to find a suitable wife as he prepares to join the Earl of Leicester’s army in the Netherlands.

Although Bess and Edmund are drawn to each other, they are aware that they can have nothing more than friendship. Bess knows that Edmund’s wealth and family connections place him beyond her reach. And Edmund, with his well-honed sense of duty, has never considered that he could follow his own wishes.

With England on the brink of war and fear of Catholic plots extending even into Lady Allingbourne’s household, time is running out for both of them.

Two In The Bush by John Manuel


Two In The Bush

has RECEIVED a


Chill with a Book READERS’ Award



Adrian Dando has a good marriage, and a steady, if somewhat pedestrian life in the West of England. Without warning it all goes horribly wrong and he is left alone and bereft.

Having two friends who have already moved out to Greece, he decides, with their encouragement, to do likewise. After all, a new start, a new life, new experiences, all of these should enable him to kick-start his life again, maybe even bring him some degree of happiness.

A 'chance' discovery of a woman's body in a quiet location not far from his home starts a chain of events that just may turn his idyll into a nightmare.

But is everything as it seems? With a plot that twists like series of old olive branches, "Two in the Bush" carries enough surprises to keep you wondering to the last page.


Genre:  Murder / Thrillers / Contemporary Fiction
Approx pages:  376
