A holiday in paradise they’ll never forget…

Where do you go to solve all your problems?
Where would you go if you were a pop princess fed up with the fame you never desired? Where would you choose to get married if you didn’t want a certain high-maintenance, nightmare guest in attendance? Where would you go to pretend your marriage wasn’t the sham you always thought it was? And if you were a writer looking for a gripping new plot, where could you find it?
At the beautiful White Sands resort the Caribbean sunshine works its magic – just so long as its guests’ troubles haven’t followed them all the way to paradise…

A delicious new novel about families, friends and finding love from the ever-popular, bestselling Sheila O’Flanagan
Romy Kilkenny loves her life in Australia – she has her dream job, lots of mates, and a best friend in Keith, who understands her better than anyone. Best of all, she couldn’t be further from her family. But when her brother rings to say she’s needed back in Ireland right away, Romy’s world is turned upside down. Flying home to see her mother and her half-siblings, Romy doubts she’ll fit in better now than she ever did, and she’s still not ready to forgive her mother for her truly disgraceful behaviour a few years earlier. Romy also worries that the accidental half-kiss with Keith at the airport may have brought their easy friendship to a sudden end. Whatever lies ahead, it’s not what Romy’s expecting – even the people we grow up with can surprise us, and if love is to be found, it will find a way.
One day when Liza went to bed, Patrick was her chubby, stubby, candy-grubbing, and pancake-loving younger brother, who irritated and amused her both, and the next morning, when she woke up, he was not.
In fact, he was quite, quite different.
When Liza’s brother, Patrick, changes overnight, Liza knows exactly what has happened: the spindlers have gotten to him, and stolen his soul.
She knows, too, that she is the only one who can save him.
To rescue Patrick, Liza must go Below, armed with little more than her wits and a broom. There, she uncovers a vast world populated with talking rats, music-loving moles, greedy troglods, and overexcitable nids . . . as well as strange monsters and terrible dangers. But she will face her greatest challenge at the spindlers’ nests, where she encounters the evil Queen and must pass a series of deadly tests – or else her soul, too, will remain Below forever.
THE BATHROOM CHRONICLES: 100 WOMEN. 100 IMAGES. 100 STORIES.
One hundred creative, intelligent, and interesting women–some well-known, some not–reveal their inner selves through candid, tender, and often humorous snapshots–both visual and textual–of a single object or corner of their bathroom. For many women, the bathroom is the most intimate of spaces. It is the place where we encounter ourselves in the mirror each morning and every night-brushing our teeth, applying make-up, fixing our hair, getting ready to face the day, or recede from it. THE BATHROOM CHRONICLES is a beautiful, chic, touching, and deeply feminine collection of photos and accompanying short stories (sometimes no more than a sentence or two) by women about their private spaces and most cherished possessions. Lena Dunham reveals the corner by the sink where she keeps her favorite pieces of jewelry, as well as her birth control.

But occasionally there are people whose paths cross ours in unexpected ways – people who are destined to change our lives profoundly.

HAPPINESS FOR BEGINNERS
Molly Baker is living her best life.
Thirty-eight years old, she lives on the twenty-five-acre Hope Farm in Buckinghamshire, surrounded by (mostly) four-legged friends and rolling hills. There’s Anthony the anti-social sheep, Tina Turner the alpaca with an attitude, and the definitely-not-miniature pig, Teacup.
Molly runs the farm as an alternative school for kids who haven’t thrived in mainstream education. It’s full on, but she wouldn’t have it any other way. So when the well-groomed Shelby Dacre turns up at Hope Farm asking to enrol his son Lucas, Molly isn’t fazed.
But Lucas is distant and soon Molly realises he might be more of a handful than she anticipated. And then there’s the added problem that his dad is distractingly handsome. Molly has her beloved farm to think of – could letting Lucas and Shelby in be a terrible mistake, or the start of something wonderful?
