Open your heart to this story

J.D. Robb’s futuristic whodunit In Death series continues in its 32nd instalment: Treachery In Death. Detective Eve Dallas and her partner, Peabody, are investigating the murder of an elderly grocery-store owner. But Peabody soon stumbles upon a trickier situation when she overhears two fellow officers, Garnet and Oberman, arguing. It doesn’t take long to realise they’re both crooked – guilty not just of corruption but murder. Now Peabody, Eve and her husband, Roarke, are trying to get the hard evidence they need to bring the dirty cops down – knowing all the while that the two are willing to kill to keep their secret.

A heart-warming transformation happens in Danielle Steel’s luminous drama 44 Charles Street. After Francesca realises she can’t afford the mortgage on her Greenwich Village townhouse, she advertises for boarders. Soon her house becomes a whole new world. The first tenant is Eileen, a school teacher from L.A. Then there’s Chris, a divorced father whose seven-year-old son visits every other weekend. The final tenant is Marya, a celebrated cookbook author hoping to restart her life after the death of her husband. As the housemates bond, the house fills with laughter, heartbreak and, always, hope. Danielle Steel is the superselling author of 80 bestsellers, including Big Girl and Honour Thyself. Softcover •
