UNCOVERED PICKS: Three New Thrillers

As a big fan of thrillers I'm always looking for the next gripping read! Here are three new thrillers from authors Louise Jensen, SJ Watson and Louise Candlish (author of Other People's Secrets and The Sudden Departure of the Frasers).

The Sister by Louise Jensen
‘I did something terrible Grace. I hope you can forgive me...'

Grace hasn’t been the same since the death of her best friend Charlie. She is haunted by Charlie’s words the last time she saw her, and in a bid for answers, opens an old memory box of Charlie’s. It soon becomes clear that there was a lot she didn’t know about her best friend.

When Grace starts a campaign to find Charlie’s father, Anna, a girl claiming to be Charlie’s sister steps forward. For Grace, finding Anna is like finding a new family and soon Anna has made herself very comfortable in Grace and boyfriend Dan’s home.

But something isn’t right. Things disappear, Dan’s acting strangely and Grace is sure that someone is following her. Is it all in Grace’s mind? Or as she gets closer to discovering the truth about both Charlie and Anna, is Grace in terrible danger?

There was nothing she could have done to save Charlie...or was there?

The Swimming Pool by Louise Candlish
'I can't take my eyes off the water. Can you?'

It's summer when Elm Hill lido opens, having stood empty for years. For Natalie Steele - wife, mother, teacher - it offers freedom from the tightly controlled routines of work and family. Especially when it leads her to Lara Channing, a charismatic former actress with a lavish bohemian lifestyle, who seems all too happy to invite Natalie into her elite circle.

Soon Natalie is spending long days at the pool, socializing with new friends and basking in a popularity she didn't know she'd been missing. Real life, and the person she used to be, begins to feel very far away.

But is such a change in fortunes too good to be true? Why are dark memories of a summer long ago now threatening to surface? And, without realizing, could Natalie have been swept dangerously out of her depth?

Second Life by SJ Watson
She loves her husband.
She’s obsessed by a stranger.

She’s a devoted mother.
She’s prepared to lose everything.

She knows what she's doing.
She’s out of control.

She’s innocent.
She’s guilty as sin.

She’s living two lives.
She might lose both.
