I’ve had a fabulous time as a result of the kindness of strangers this week, with an anonymous (to me) nomination leading to me winning the Romantic Novelists’ Association Media Star award. What better way to celebrate than to reveal Julie Newman’s latest book The Kindness of Strangers today?
The Kindness of Strangers will be published on 19th April 2018 by Urbane Publications.
The Kindness of Strangers
Secrets and lies abound in Julie Newman’s breathtaking new novel, The Kindness of Strangers.
When Helen’s chance at happiness is threatened what lengths will she go to in order to hide the truth?
Deceived by her husband and desperate for a ‘perfect’ family life, Helen will do everything she can to achieve her goals – whatever the cost…
Following the gripping and controversial Beware the Cuckoo, Julie Newman’s new novel lifts the lid on family secrets, and the dark past that haunts a seemingly happy household…
Beware the Cuckoo
They were reunited at his funeral, school friends with a shared past. A past that is anything but straightforward. A past that harbours secrets and untruths.
Karen has a seemingly perfect life. An adoring husband, two wonderful children and a beautiful home. She has all she has ever wanted, living the dream. She also has a secret.
Sandra’s once perfect life is rapidly unravelling. The man who meant everything to her had a dark side, and her business is failing. To get her life back on track, she needs to reclaim what is rightfully hers. She knows the secret.
As the past meets the present, truths are revealed – and both women understand the true cost of betrayal.
Out in e-book and paperback, Beware the Cuckoo is also out this week in audio here.
