Your Place or Mine?

By Julie Highmore

  • Paperback
  • £6.99

Where there's a Will, there's a way...

A wonderfully warm and witty novel about building new friendships - in unlikely places...
When Bea's husband dies, she decides not to be a lonely widow, rattling around her big Oxford house. Instead, she chooses three tenants, each of whom needs her help, and in return offers Bea more affection than her own distant son. Over the years they become something of a strange 'family', until the day they must find a new housemate.

Will needs a place to stay, and expects the usual grimy kitchen and sloppy students. Bea's beautiful house seems too good to be true - until he meets the housemates. They're all at least twenty years older than him, and range from outrageously camp to irritatingly raucous. But somehow he finds he's taken the stunning spare room, and once he's moved in it's hard to escape. His sister, Harrie, falls in love with more than just the house when she comes to visit, and together they're soon caught up in Bea's final secret...

If you delight in the suspense of Stephen King and The Stranger by Harlan Coben chilled you to the bone (in the best possible way), you'll love Dragon Tears - the classic thriller by Sunday Times and New York Times bestselling author Dean Koontz. 'Not just a master of our darkest dreams but also a literary juggler' - The Times.Harry Lyon is a cop who embraces tradition and order. The biggest bane of his life is his partner, Connie Gulliver. Harry doesn't like the messiness of her desk, her lack of social polish or her sometimes casual attitude towards the law. 'Look, Harry, it's the Age of Chaos,' she tells him. 'Get with the times.' And when Harry and Connie have to take out a hopped-up gunman in a restaurant, the chase and shootout swiftly degenerate into a surreal nightmare that seems to justify Connie's view of the modern world. Shortly after, Harry encounters a filthy, rag-clad denizen of the streets, who says ominously, 'Ticktock, ticktock. You'll be dead in sixteen hours.' Struggling to regain the orderly life he cherishes, Harry is trapped in an undertow of terror and violence. For reasons he does not understand, someone is after him, Connie Gulliver and the people he loves.
