They make you laugh-out-loud one minute, and then have you crying the next... they're really emotional and tug at the heart strings but are fun, life-affirming reads!' Stardust Book Reviews Tess and Orla have been best friends througho...ut most of their adult lives. So when life gave them lemons and their loved ones let them down, they pooled their resources and bought a dressmakers shop on the corner of Penny Lane. And they've been doing just fine ever since. But one day, while studying her tired eyes and shapeless figure in the mirror, sixty-two-year-old Tess realised that she doesn't want her life to be just fine anymore. She wants it to be extraordinary. For as long as she can remember she's put everyone else first. Now she wants to rediscover herself - and experience the kind of whirlwind adventure that will have the power make her smile when she's confined to the armchair of a retirement home. With the encouragement of fun-loving and quirky Orla, Tess joins an over-the-hill dating agency and the two friends book a singles cruise around the Mediterranean. And that's when their adventure of a lifetime really begins... A totally uplifting, heart-warming, hilarious page turner about embracing the moment, learning to love again and the joy of second chances. Perfect for fans of The Kicking the Bucket List and The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry. What readers are saying about Dee MacDonald: 'OMG!...

            In 1939, Helene, young, naive and recently married, waves goodbye to her husband, who has enlisted in the British army. Her home Guernsey is soon invaded by the Germans, who remain there for the length of the war. Forty years later, her daughter Roz begins a search for the truth ...about her father, and stumbles into the secret history of her mother's life, and the painful choices she made to survive the Nazi occupation. Island Song vividly evokes the war years in Guernsey, delving into the psychological toll of living with the enemy. Written with emotional acuity and passionate intensity, it speaks to the moral complexities of war-time allegiances, the hidden trauma for women during wartime, and asks whether, and how, we can claim ownership of our own stories.

            The Girl on the Train meets Before I Go to Sleep with a dash of Bridget Jones in this chilling tale of love gone horribly wrong ... Some love affairs change you forever. Someone comes into your orbit and swivels you on your axis, like the wind working on a rooftop weather vane. A...nd when they leave, as the wind always does, you are different; you have a new direction. And it's not always north.' Any woman who's ever been involved with a bad, bad man and been dumped will understand what it feels like to be broken, broken-hearted and bent on revenge. Taylor Bishop is hurt, angry and wants to destroy Angus Hollingsworth in the way he destroyed her: `Insidiously. Irreparably. Like a puzzle he'd slowly dissembled ... stolen a couple of pieces from, and then discarded, knowing that nobody would ever be able to put it back together ever again.' So Taylor consults The Art of War and makes a plan. Then she takes the next irrevocable step - one that will change her life forever. Things start to spiral out of her control - and The Sunday Girl becomes impossible to put down.
