FRESH VOICES – May
Jess Kidd will bring us her third novel, Things in Jars. I’ve been pushing Jess’s first book, Himself, into the hands of customers for years with the caveat that Mahony, the delicious central character, sees dead people. Her new novel is set in Victorian London and features Bridie Devine as a female detective searching for a kidnapped child, Christabel Berwick, with the added complication that Christobel is not supposed to exist – what’s not to love?
Graham Norton has described her novel as, “Thrilling, mysterious, twisted, but more than anything, beautifully written and filled to bursting with heart.”
