4. The Guest List by Lucy Foley A wedding on a remote island off the coast of Ireland. It’s the wedding of the year but hidden behind the happiness of the bride, the groom and their guests are dark secrets and hidden pasts. It all begins to unravel until the revelations on the evening of the wedding. One word for this book is wow. I devoured this book in less than a week. From start to finish I was completely hooked. Every character had their own story with secrets and lies waiting to be exposed at every turn of the page. What a tale!

5. The Chalet by Catherine Cooper Set in the French Alps, two couples are on holiday in a luxury chalet. Almost 20 years prior, a tragedy had happened in the same ski resort and although time has passed, it has still not been forgotten. The story flips between the events of the past and the present day. Towards the end, it all becomes clear as is the the reason why the two stories are connected - revenge. It was such a page turner! It had me guessing who the characters really were and questioning their motives but I got it completely wrong and was shocked when the truth came out. I know I've found a good book when I am trying to read whilst walking and multi-tasking. I couldn't put it down from start to finish! For more from Hattie, visit
