The Ops Room Girls (Softcover)
Vicki Beeby

It is 1939 and working-class Evie Bishop has received a scholarship to study mathematics at Oxford when tragedy turns her life upside down. She must seek a new future for herself; inspired to contribute to the war effort, she joins the Women's Auxiliary Air Force as an Ops Room plotter. Posted to a fighter station on the Sussex coast, Evie befriends two other WAAFs - shy, awkward May and flirty, glamorous Jess. Faced with earning the approval of strict officers and finding their way in a male-dominated world, the three girls band together to overcome challenges, navigate new romances and keep their pilots safe in the skies. But the German bombers seem to know more than they should about the base's operations, and soon Evie, May and Jess are caught up in a world more dangerous than they ever imagined...

The Windsors At War (Audio CD)
Alexander Larman / Sophie Roberts

At the outbreak of WW2, the British monarchy was in a state of turmoil. Edward VIII had abdicated the throne, leaving his unprepared and terrified brother Bertie to become George VI. Meanwhile, as the now-Duke of Windsor awaited the decree allowing him to marry his mistress Wallis Simpson, he became increasingly interested in the expansionist plans of the Führer of Germany. The Windsors at War tells the story of the turbulent and seismic decade between 1937 and 1947, including the bombing of Buckingham Palace in May 1940, the Duke of Windsor's ill-advised visit to Germany in October 1937 and the death of the Duke of Kent in a plane crash in August 1942. It answers a simple question: how did this dysfunctional family manage to put their differences aside and unite to help win the greatest conflict of their lifetimes?

The Space Between Us (Softcover)
Doug Johnstone

Lennox is a troubled teenager with no family. Ava is eight months pregnant and fleeing her abusive husband. Heather is a grieving mother and cancer sufferer. They don't know each other, but when a meteor streaks over Edinburgh, all three suffer instant, catastrophic strokes...only to wake up the following day in hospital, miraculously recovered. When news reaches them of an octopus-like creature washed up on the shore near where the meteor came to earth, Lennox senses that some extra-terrestrial force is at play. With the help of Ava, Heather, and a journalist named Ewan, he rescues the alien - who they christen 'Sandy' - and goes on the run. But they aren't the only ones with an interest in Sandy. Close behind are Ava's husband, the police, and a government unit who wants to capture the creature at all costs...

Blotto, Twinks And The Suspicious Guests (Softcover)
Simon Brett

An explosion of disgust - 'What? You mean the Earl does it for money?' - from Blotto is provoked when Twinks informs him of the activities of the Earl of Woking. The gentleman in question is the owner of Clusters, a stately home not far from Tawcester Towers, who has been renting out his property for private functions - and CHARGING his guests! The discovery of this appalling lapse in aristocratic behaviour sets Blotto and Twinks off on their latest adventure. Determined to find out more about the Earl of Woking's activities, they discover the existence of a sinister group called Aristotours - brokers between impoverished owners of stately homes and the common people, offering a taste of the high life to such plebeian characters as stockbrokers, surgeons and solicitors. And as if this were not bad enough, they discover that Aristotours has its beady eye upon Tawcester Towers itself!
