A Trio of New Arrivals

A Trio of New Arrivals

Three new arrivals, just in time for the weekend.

1) About Us by Sinéad Moriarty

Three couples. One therapist's couch ... Alice and Niall used to be lovers, best friends and parents, in that order.

Now they're no longer on the same page or even reading from the same book. Ann thought when she and Ken retired, it would be their second spring. Instead, it feels more like an icy winter.

Orla is falling in love with boyfriend Paul, but her complicated past makes her unsure if she can ever be intimate with anyone. Three couples find themselves telling a stranger about the most private part of their lives - their hopes, their disappointments, their awkward realisations. Can they learn to be honest with each other? And what life-changing decisions will be made when they do?

2) The Distant Shores by Santa Montefiore

Pure escapism on every page, The Distant Shores tells the story of a family torn apart, and the woman who will bring them back together. Margot Hart travels to Ireland to write a biography of the famous Deverill family. She knows she must speak to the current Lord Deverill - JP - if she is to uncover the secrets of the past.

A notorious recluse, JP won't be an easy man to crack. But Margot is determined - and she is not a woman who is easily put off. What she never expected was to form a close bond with JP and be drawn into his family disputes.

Shouldering the blame for running up debts that forced him to sell the family castle, JP is isolated and vulnerable. With help from his handsome son Colm, it seems as though Margot might be the only one who can restore JP's fortunes. Will the family ever succeed in healing rifts that have been centuries in the making

3) The Second Woman by Charlotte Philby

Two women are found dead. Both had a secret. Both had a choice. Artemis leaves the remote Greek island she grew up on to start a shiny new life in 1990s London with her British husband, a successful entrepreneur. Finally, she has escaped the ghosts of her past. Until she is found hanging from the stairs of her beautiful family home.

Two decades later, the apparent suicide of an heiress uncannily mirrors Artemis' mysterious death. And when the ensuing investigation uncovers links to a criminal cartel, National Crime Agency officer Madeleine Farrow begins to pull apart the web of deceit surrounding the two women. THE SECOND WOMAN is a deeply unsettling, brilliantly gripping story of a family legacy built upon lies.

Secrets can be suffocating... especially in the wrong hands.

Manga! Manga! Manga!

Manga! Manga! Manga!

We're always looking to add new titles to our stock of Manga books (one of the best in the region, we think). Pictured above are just a few of the new series that we've started to carry. We're always expanding though. So if there's ever a series that we don't have, that you'd like us to, then please do let us know. If we can get it in, we will!

Megamonster is here!

Megamonster is here!

It's here Walliams fans! David Walliams' scariest, yuckiest and squishiest book - Megamonster!


On a volcanic island, in the middle of shark-infested waters, stands The Cruel School. The lessons are appalling, the school dinners are revolting and the teachers are terrifying - especially the mysterious Science teacher Doctor Doktur. When Larker is sent to the school, she quickly realises something very odd is going on...

Something involving Doctor Doktur, a pair of strange spectacles, and a 'Monsterfication Machine'. And ultimately she finds herself face to face with a real life Megamonster. There seems to be no escape - but for Larker, nothing is impossible...
