Heart Bones by Colleen Hoover - e-audiobook

After carving her path all on her own, Beyah is well on her way to bigger and better things, thanks to no one but herself. With only two short months separating her from the future she's built and the past she desperately wants to leave behind, an unexpected death leaves Beyah with no place to go during the interim. Forced to reach out to her last resort, Beyah has to spend the remainder of her summer on a peninsula in Texas with a father she barely knows. Beyah's plan is to keep her head down and let the summer slip by seamlessly, but her new neighbour Samson throws a wrench in that plan. Samson and Beyah have nothing in common on the surface, but are inexplicably drawn to each other. Beyah and Samson agree to stay in the shallow end of a summer fling. What Beyah doesn't realise is that a rip current is coming, and it's about to drag her heart out to sea.

We Know you Remember by Tover Alsterdal - e-audiobook

From Swedish crime sensation Tove Asterdal: immerse yourself in the long summer days of this claustrophobic community as detective Eira Sjödin takes on a case guaranteed to keep you guessing to the end.

Detective Eira Sjödin is just old enough to remember the summer when 16-year-old Lina Stavred went missing. Her entire community was haunted by the disappearance - especially when Olof Hagström, just 14 himself, confessed to her murder. That was two decades ago. No one in their small rural community has seen or heard from him since, but the spectre of his crime lingers in the forests around the town. But now Olof is back, and he stands accused of another brutal crime. Eira will have to untangle years of well-kept secrets to get to the truth . . . because in Ådalen, where Eira knows everyone, nothing is what it seems.

Duck a l'Orange for Breakfast by Karina May - available as both an e-book and e-audiobook

Maxine 'Max' Mayberry, an ad woman with writing ambitions, is holed up in her eternally single friend's apartment after discovering her long-term boyfriend in bed with another woman. To make matters worse, Max has been diagnosed with a brain tumour. Enter Johnny: a witty, handsome Tinder pen pal and the perfect distraction. Together, they flirt and cook their way through 'The Laurent Family Cookbook', a recipe book from her ex-boyfriend's pretentious French family, without ever meeting in person. The 'Fork Him' project starts as a joke, but soon transforms into something more meaningful as Max undergoes brain surgery, travels to Paris for a fresh start, and decides whether she believes in herself enough to chase the life - and the man - she really wants.

Old God's Time by Sebastian Barry - available as both an e-book and e-audiobook

Recently retired policeman Tom Kettle is settling into the quiet of his new home, a lean-to annexed to a Victorian castle overlooking the Irish Sea. For months he has barely seen a soul, catching only glimpses of his eccentric landlord and a nervous young mother who has moved in next door. Occasionally, fond memories return, of his family, his beloved wife June and their two children.

But when two former colleagues turn up at his door with questions about a decades-old case, one which Tom never quite came to terms with, he finds himself pulled into the darkest currents of his past.

A beautiful, haunting novel, in which nothing is quite as it seems, Old God's Time is about what we live through, what we live with, and what may survive of us.
