A good guy. So when Mel leaves him, he's floored. She was lucky to be with a man like him. Craving solitude, he accepts a job on the coast and quickly settles into his new life where he meets reclusive artist Lennie. Lennie has made the same move for similar reasons. She is living in a crumbling cottage on the edge of a nearby cliff. It's an undeniably scary location, but sometimes you have to face your fears to get past them. As their relationship develops, two young women go missing while on a walk protesting gendered violence, right by where Cole and Lennie live. Finding themselves at the heart of a police investigation and media frenzy, it soon becomes clear that they don't know each other very well at all. This is what happens when women have had enough.

Now in their 90s, Josephine and Penny are in demand at commemorative events. Despite their age, they're in great form - sprightly and sparky, and always in search of their next 'excitement'. This time it's a trip to Paris to receive the Légion d'honneur, accompanied by their devoted great-nephew, Archie. Keen historian Archie believes his great aunts had minor roles in the Women's Royal Navy and the First Aid Nursing Yeomanry, but that's only half the story. There's a reason sweet Auntie Penny can dispatch a would-be mugger with a brolly. This trip to Paris is not what it seems either. Scandal and crime have quietly trailed the sisters since the war. Now armed with new information about an old adversary, these much decorated veterans intend to settle scores, avenge lost friends, and pull off one last heist.

Against the rugged backdrop of this faraway spot beyond Shetland, Carys Davies's intimate drama unfolds with tension and tenderness: a touching and crystalline study of ordinary people buffeted by history and a powerful exploration of the distances and connections between us.<br /><span style="font-weight:bold;">Author: </span>Davies, Carys<br /><span style="font-weight:bold;">Published: </span>London : Granta, 2024.<br />154 pages ; 21 cm<br /><span style="font-weight:bold;">Average rating: </span><span style="vertical-align: middle;"><img style="margin:0;" src="https://buckinghamshire.spydus.co.uk/gifs/small-star.gif" alt="★" /><img style="margin:0;" src="https://buckinghamshire.spydus.co.uk/gifs/small-star.gif" alt="★" /><img style="margin:0;" src="https://buckinghamshire.spydus.co.uk/gifs/small-star.gif" alt="★" /><img style="margin:0;" src="https://buckinghamshire.spydus.co.uk/gifs/small-star.gif" alt="★" /><img style="margin:0;" src="https://buckinghamshire.spydus.co.uk/gifs/small-star.gif" alt="★" /><img style="margin:0;" src="https://buckinghamshire.spydus.co.uk/gifs/small-star.gif" alt="★" /><img style="margin:0;" src="https://buckinghamshire.spydus.co.uk/gifs/small-star.gif" alt="★" /><img style="margin:0;" src="https://buckinghamshire.spydus.co.uk/gifs/small-star.gif" alt="★" /><img style="margin:0;" src="https://buckinghamshire.spydus.co.uk/gifs/small-star.gif" alt="★" /><img style="margin:0;" src="https://buckinghamshire.spydus.co.uk/gifs/small-star.gif" alt="★" /></span> (2 reviews)<br /><br />Chalfont St Giles Community Library - (Buckinghamshire libraries) - Donation: adult fiction - This item cannot be reserved (Set: 06 Apr 2024) - Onloan - Due: 30 May 2024 - 95100000371938<br />Chalfont St Peter Community Library - (Buckinghamshire libraries) - Donation: adult fiction - Adult fiction - This item cannot be reserved (Set: 29 Mar 2024) - Onloan - Due: 31 May 2024 - 95100000373890<br />Great Missenden Community Library - (Buckinghamshire libraries) - Donation: adult fiction - This item cannot be reserved (Set: 30 Apr 2024) - Onloan - Due: 12 Jun 2024 - 95100000372896<br /> Strange Sally Diamond / Liz Nugent. https://buckinghamshire.spydus.co.uk/cgi-bin/spydus.exe/ENQ/WPAC/BIBENQ?SETLVL=&BRN=5662303&CF=BIB&ISGLB=0 Sally Diamond cannot understand why what she did was so strange.

The brutality of the murder chillingly echoes a killing from twenty-five years ago. Out-of-state Barbara Atkins is brought in to assist the sheriff, Jensen Tucker, who investigated the original case.

He really was good at telling it - right up until the moment he realized he was actually in love with his childhood best friend Petra. Which is how Daphne begins her new story: Stranded in beautiful Waning Bay, Michigan, without friends or family but with a dream job as a children's librarian (that barely pays the bills), and proposing to be roommates with the only person who could possibly understand her predicament: Petra's ex, Miles Nowak. Scruffy and chaotic, Miles is exactly the opposite of practical, buttoned up Daphne, whose coworkers know so little about her they have a running bet that she's either FBI or in witness protection.

Her role is to work as a 'bridge': living with, assisting and monitoring the expat known as '1847' - Commander Graham Gore. As far as history is concerned, Commander Gore died on Sir John Franklin's doomed expedition to the Arctic, so he's a little disoriented to find himself alive and surrounded by outlandish concepts such as 'washing machine', 'Spotify' and 'the collapse of the British Empire'. With an appetite for discovery and a seven-a-day cigarette habit, he soon adjusts; and during a long, sultry summer he and his bridge move from awkwardness to genuine friendship, to something more. But as the true shape of the project that brought them together begins to emerge, they are forced to confront their past choices and imagined futures.

As far as history is concerned, Commander Gore died on Sir John Franklin's doomed expedition to the Arctic, so he's a little disoriented to find himself alive and surrounded by outlandish concepts such as 'washing machine', 'Spotify' and 'the collapse of the British Empire'. With an appetite for discovery and a seven-a-day cigarette habit, he soon adjusts; and during a long, sultry summer he and his bridge move from awkwardness to genuine friendship, to something more. But as the true shape of the project that brought them together begins to emerge, they are forced to confront their past choices and imagined futures.<br /><span style="font-weight:bold;">Author: </span>Bradley, Kaliane<br /><span style="font-weight:bold;">Published: </span>London : Sceptre, 2024.<br />368 pages ; 24 cm<br /><span style="font-weight:bold;">Average rating: </span><span style="vertical-align: middle;"><img style="margin:0;" src="https://buckinghamshire.spydus.co.uk/gifs/small-star.gif" alt="★" /><img style="margin:0;" src="https://buckinghamshire.spydus.co.uk/gifs/small-star.gif" alt="★" /><img style="margin:0;" src="https://buckinghamshire.spydus.co.uk/gifs/small-star.gif" alt="★" /><img style="margin:0;" src="https://buckinghamshire.spydus.co.uk/gifs/small-star.gif" alt="★" /><img style="margin:0;" src="https://buckinghamshire.spydus.co.uk/gifs/small-star.gif" alt="★" /><img style="margin:0;" src="https://buckinghamshire.spydus.co.uk/gifs/small-star.gif" alt="★" /><img style="margin:0;" src="https://buckinghamshire.spydus.co.uk/gifs/small-star.gif" alt="★" /><img style="margin:0;" src="https://buckinghamshire.spydus.co.uk/gifs/small-star.gif" alt="★" /><img style="margin:0;" src="https://buckinghamshire.spydus.co.uk/gifs/small-blankstar.gif" alt="☆" /><img style="margin:0;" src="https://buckinghamshire.spydus.co.uk/gifs/small-blankstar.gif" alt="☆" /></span> (1 review)<br /><span style="font-weight:bold;">14 reserves</span><br /><br />Beaconsfield Library - (Buckinghamshire libraries) - Adult fiction: hardback - In-transit from Beaconsfield Library to Sandwich Library (Set: 23 May 2024) - 95100000427807<br />Chalfont St Peter Community Library - (Buckinghamshire libraries) - Donation: adult fiction - Adult fiction - This item cannot be reserved (Set: 17 May 2024) - Onloan - Due: 08 Jun 2024 - 95100000049933<br />Farnham Common Community Library - (Buckinghamshire libraries) - Adult fiction: hardback - SF - Awaiting delivery (Set: 22 May 2024) - 95100000427444<br />Great Missenden Community Library - (Buckinghamshire libraries) - Donation: adult fiction - This item cannot be reserved (Set: 24 May 2024) - Recently returned - 95100000271467<br />Hazlemere Library - (Buckinghamshire libraries) - Adult fiction: hardback - In-transit from Hazlemere Library to Broadstairs Library (Set: 23 May 2024) - 95100000427049<br />High Wycombe Library - (Buckinghamshire libraries) - Adult fiction: hardback - In-transit from High Wycombe Library to Farnham Common Community Library (Set: 23 May 2024) - 95100000427542<br /> Earth / John Boyne. https://buckinghamshire.spydus.co.uk/cgi-bin/spydus.exe/ENQ/WPAC/BIBENQ?SETLVL=&BRN=5682631&CF=BIB&ISGLB=0 It's the tabloid sensation of the year: two well-known footballers standing in the dock, charged with sexual assault, a series of vile text messages pointing towards their guilt. As the trial unfolds, Evan Keogh reflects on the events that have led him to this moment. Since leaving his island home, his life has been a lie on many levels. He's a talented footballer who wanted to be an artist. A gay man in a sport that rejects diversity. A defendant whose knowledge of what took place on that fateful night threatens more than just his freedom or career. The jury will deliver a verdict but, before they do, Evan must judge for himself whether the man he has become is the man he wanted to be.

It is said that the lead actress Lilith has made a pact with Melpomene, the tragic muse of Greek mythology, to become the greatest actress to ever grace the stage. Suspicious of Lilith, the jealous wife of the theatre owner sends dresser Jenny to spy on her, and desperate for the money to help her family, Jenny agrees. What Jenny finds is a woman as astonishing in her performance as she is provocative in nature. On stage, it's as though Lilith is possessed by the characters she plays, yet off stage she is as tragic as the Muse who inspires her, and Jenny, sorry for her, befriends the troubled actress. But when strange events begin to take place around the theatre, Jenny wonders if the rumours are true, and fears that when the Muse comes calling for payment, the cost will be too high.

He is an international brand worth billions of dollars. He doesn't just have huge endorsement deals with some of the biggest corporations in the world; LeBron sits on boards of directors and has an equity stake in the companies he sponsors. To tell this epic story, Benedict has done exhaustive research, digging through thousands of pages of primary source documents, articles, books and hundreds of hours of video footage.
