Our top titles include A Talent for Murder by Andrew Wilson, in which the Queen of Crime is ensnared in a deadly plot.

Making matches is the theme of Julie Ferry’s The Transatlantic Marriage Bureau, the fascinating true story of the ʻdollar princesses’ who travelled from America to wed English aristocrats – and the unofficial brokers who arranged their marriages.

For younger listeners, our highlights include Erica’s Elephant by Sylvia Bishop, a tale of the friendship between ten-year-old Erica and a large, somewhat confused elephant; and Chris Callaghan’s The Great Chocoplot, which sees eleven-year-old Jelly trying to prevent the Chocopocalypse which will bring about the end of chocolate.
