The brand-new standalone novel from the Number One bestselling author of Me Before You, After You and Still Me. Inspired by a remarkable true story, The Giver Of Stars features five incredible women living in extraordinary and perilous times.
Alice Wright has travelled halfway across the world to escape her stifling life in England. Handsome American businessman Bennett Van Cleve represents a fresh start. But she soon realises that swapping the twitching curtains of suburbia for newlywed life in the wild mountains of Kentucky isn't the answer to her prayers. But maybe meeting Margery O'Hara is. The heart and backbone of the small community of Salt Lick, a woman who isn't afraid of anything or anyone, Margery is on a mission. Enlisting Alice, along with three other women, all from very different backgrounds, to join her, the band of unlikely sisters battle the elements and unforgiving terrain - as well as brave all manner of dangers and social disapproval - to ride hundreds of miles a week to deliver books to isolated families. Transforming the lives of so many is all the impetus they need to take such risks.
And for Alice, her new job and blossoming friendships become an unexpected lifeline, providing her with the courage she needs to make some tough decisions about her marriage. Then a body is found in the mountains, rocking the close-knit community and tearing the women apart as one of them becomes the prime suspect. Can they pull together to overcome their greatest challenge yet?
A love letter to the power of books and literature and their ability to bring us together and deliver the truth, as well as a tribute to female friendship, The Giver Of Stars is the book that Jojo Moyes was born to write.
New York Times bestselling author Nalini Singh welcomes you to a remote town on the edge of the world where even the blinding brightness of the sun can't mask the darkness that lies deep within a killer...
On the rugged West Coast of New Zealand, Golden Cove is more than just a town where people live. The adults are more than neighbours; the children, more than schoolmates. That is until one fateful summer - and several vanished bodies - shatters the trust holding Golden Cove together. All that's left are whispers behind closed doors, broken friendships, and a silent agreement not to look back. But they can't run from the past forever.
Eight years later, a beautiful young woman disappears without a trace, and the residents of Golden Cove wonder if their home shelters something far more dangerous than an unforgiving landscape. It's not long before the dark past collides with the haunting present and deadly secrets come to light.
The Numbers Game is a thoughtful story about three generations of women, by the world's favorite storyteller, Danielle Steel.
Eileen Jackson is forty. Her marriage is on the rocks, and her self-esteem is at an all-time low. Her children are struggling to come to terms with their parents’ divorce and she knows she has to get her life back on track – fast. The realization of her talent and the opportunity to pursue a long-held ambition gives her the confidence to believe in herself and be the happiest she’s ever been.
Olivia Waters is twenty-seven. Beautiful, clever, successful, she is the woman who Eileen’s husband has fallen in love with. What she swiftly comes to understand is that while an affair is fun, she’s too young to take on the trappings and responsibilities of a father of three children – she has much to do in her life and she’s not prepared to sacrifice ambition just yet.
At ninety-two, Olivia’s grandmother, Gabrielle, is a talented and internationally successful sculptor. She’s enjoying life to the full, she’s experienced the highs and lows of youth and middle age and now she knows what she wants out of life and who she wants to be with.
Life is for living – at any age. It’s about taking opportunities, and knowing when to take them. Because sometimes you have to walk through the storm clouds to discover the sun.

Dan Hollis lives alone, in a remote barn hidden in the woods on Exmoor. He leads a simple life and takes great pleasure in the small things - he counts the toadstools he finds on his morning walk (317), he cuts his sandwiches into triangles and arranges them geometrically on his plate, he spends his days in the workshop at the bottom of the seventeen-step staircase. For the past twenty-three years he has been making harps, choosing beautifully coloured local wood, carving and shaping it by hand, and adding his unique 'signature'- a specially-chosen pebble that he sits in the wood. He enjoys his solitary, quiet routine.
Then, one day, Exmoor housewife Ellie Jacobs stumbles across the barn by chance as she's walking in the woods. She's utterly stunned by the discovery of the enchanting workshop, and Dan (taken by her surprise - and her cherry-coloured socks) gives her the gift of a beautiful cherry wood harp. But Ellie's controlling husband Clive refuses to let her keep it - and so she begins to take lessons in secret at the barn. Captivated by Dan's innocent enthusiasm and infectious joy for the countryside, his life, his harps, Ellie starts to dream of escaping her loveless marriage - and so begins a story of innocent deception, unintended complications and life-changing consequences for them all.

From the moment 26-year-old Tristan Hansen steps out of the shower and onto the roof garden of his Maboneng loft, Toyboy pulsates with eroticism. The air is hot and humid, and there’s a Joburg thunderstorm brewing on the horizon. The first flashes of lightning illuminates Tristan’s spectacular flat and the riches it contains: gifts of thanks from his many clients, tokens of their appreciation. Because Tristan is an angel of pleasure, an exclusive escort to Johannesburg’s rich and powerful women. And he is one of a kind.
At how the enigmatic Tristan were trained in the art of lovemaking his clients can only guess. He seldom speaks of those who helped him shake off the strictures of his conservative mother who had to raise him on her own when his father committed suicide. Christina, his first love, and their story set far off in a small Italian village, he also keeps to himself.
But how did Tristan end up here? Who were those women who taught him all he knows? And who is the mystery caller who keeps on phoning and whose calls are filled with menacing silence?

A successful LA artist, Roman Velasco appears to have everything he could possibly want—money, women, fame. Only Grace Moore, his reluctant, newly hired personal assistant, knows how little he truly has. The demons of Roman’s past seem to echo through the halls of his empty mansion and out across his breathtaking Topanga Canyon view. But Grace doesn’t know how her boss secretly wrestles with those demons: by tagging buildings as the Bird, a notorious but unidentified graffiti artist—an alter ego that could destroy his career and land him in prison.
Like Roman, Grace is wrestling with ghosts and secrets of her own. After a disastrous marriage threw her life completely off course, she vowed never to let love steal her dreams again. But as she gets to know the enigmatic man behind the reputation, it’s as if the jagged pieces of both of their pasts slowly begin to fit together until something so unexpected happens that it changes the course of their relationship—and both their lives—forever.
