Sarah Hope / Laura Kirman

Life could not be busier for Ginny and the team at Wagging Tails. The annual dog show is looming, a crucial event when it comes to fundraising and ensuring the volunteers can continue the brilliant work they do. But their trusted newspaper reporter, who always includes them in his weekly column, is retiring, only to be replaced with a city-slicker named Darryl. And Darryl, as Ginny soon learns, has no interest in articles he deems 'below him'. Not one to take no as an answer, Ginny becomes determined to get him to meet the dogs themselves. One look at their cute faces and they'll worm their way into his heart. But what Ginny doesn't anticipate is that Darryl might be more open-hearted than he seems. And inviting him to the dogs' home might be the best decision she ever made - even if she doesn't realise it at first!

Sally Jenkins / Jilly Bond

A jar of festival mud, a photo album of family memories, a child's teddy bear, a book of bell ringing methods, an old cassette tape, a pair of slippers . . . These are the items that fill the exhibit shelves in Vanessa Jones' museum. At first glance, they appear to have nothing in common, but that's before you find out the stories behind them . . . Because Vanessa's Little Museum of Hope is no ordinary museum - its aim is to help people heal by donating items associated with shattered lives and failed relationships, and in doing so, find a way to move on, perhaps even start again. The museum soon becomes a sanctuary for the broken hearts in Vanessa's city, and she's always on hand to offer a cup of tea, a slice of cake and a listening ear. But could the bringer of Hope need a little help moving on herself?

Lynnette Williams/Robin Eveleigh / Mira Dovreni

Georgia Williams' murder at the hands of college pal Jamie Reynolds was a crime that shocked the nation: chillingly executed and horrific in its sexual depravity. But when Georgia's devastated mother, Lynnette, and father, Steve, questioned the events leading to their daughter's death, they discovered it was also entirely preventable. At the time of Georgia's disappearance, Steve was - ironically - a highly-commended murder squad detective serving with West Mercia Police. The same force, Steve and Lynnette discovered, had had Reynolds in its sights for years before Georgia's murder, but let him slip their net. Drawing on Steve's inside police knowledge, the couple exposed the litany of failures that let Reynolds infiltrate their daughter's life, and allowed him to kill. Now, in her powerful and moving memoir, Lynnette tries to get beyond the platitudes of 'mistakes made and lessons learned' to effect real change, and also details the heartbreaking aftermath of a crime that should never have happened.
