The Last Life tells the story of the teenage Sagesse LaBasse and her family, French Algerian emigrants haunted by their history, brought to the brink of destruction by a single reckless act. Observed with a fifteen-year-old’s ruthless regard for truth, it is a novel about secrets and ghosts, love and honour, the stories we tell ourselves and the lies to which we cling. It is a work of stunning emotional power, written in prose of matchless iridescence and grace.

A Note from Sophie Kinsella on footnotes:
To All my Electronic Readers
You may have noticed that I’ve Got Your Number includes footnotes (but don’t worry, I haven’t written an academic treatise!). These footnotes are cleverly linked in the ebook edition and if you haven’t already got to grips with using them, here is what to do:
·When a small number appears as you are reading, click or tap it and you will jump straight through to the footnote
·When you’ve read the footnote, click or tap on the number again and you will jump straight back to where you were to carry on reading.
I hope you enjoy the book!

Set in London during the Blitz, in occupied France and amid the rolling Chiltern hills of Buckinghamshire, this is the story of two cousins who, as squabbling rivals, are thrown together by the outbreak of war.
Nell and Sylvie grow up quickly during the early days of rationing, black-outs, and the arrival of RAF planes in the skies over the Chilterns. Sylvie, marooned in England, is desperately worried for her parents who she left behind in Nazi-occupied Normandy, and puts up a barrier of bitterness to hide her distress. Nell, meanwhile, witnesses the crumbling of her parents’ marriage. Even as the war rages on around them, the competition and jealousy between the cousins battles on – especially in romance.
When the girls fall in love with the same man, the brave and unassuming RAF officer Alex Hammond, he is spared having to choose between them. The machinations of war change the course of all their lives, with devastating consequences. Sylvie continues to hurt those who love her and to hide her pain behind her tough facade. And for Nell, the only place she can ever find solace is inside the September Garden, the walled garden that her father tended so lovingly before he left. This is the only place she feels safe in, to where she is always drawn, and where she decides to hide her most dreadful secret…Purchase this novel today for only £1.74.
1900s London and Denton has mysteries to solve…Three novels in one e-book file for only £2.99.
In The Frightened Man American novelist Denton is about to be plunged into the dark heart of a society where privilege and propriety hide unspeakable horrors. When a stranger turns up at his door declaring he has just seen Jack the Ripper, Denton dismisses his lurid ravings as the delusions of a madman. But then a prostitute’s horribly mutilated body is discovered that night – and Denton suspects the two events are connected. While the police investigation grinds towards a seemingly pre-ordained conclusion, Denton becomes obsessed with finding out who the victim really was and who killed her – a search that leads him by degrees into the darkest, most violent underbelly of London.
In The Bohemian Girl, Denton receives a strange letter which demands his attention: a note from a young woman, Mary, saying she’s in terrible danger and needs his help. The letter is months old, and was only forwarded to him when the buyer of a painting found it stuck behind the frame. Presumably whatever Mary was frightened of has already happened. So why did she hide the note behind this particular painting, instead of sending it? The search for answers leads Denton into the heart of Bohemian London – a world of brilliance and depravity, of unconventional morals and shifting sexual identities, where the border between genius and madness is hard to discern but easy to cross.
In The Second Woman, Denton is drawn into a complex web of murder and revenge when a mysterious Polish woman is found dead in the house adjoining his – the one occupied by his lover, Janet Stryker – and while the police remain baffled, he begins to suspect she is the victim of some sort of political conspiracy. But involving himself in the life and death of Lydia Alken will prove more dangerous than he could have imagined, as Denton himself falls victim to the fledgling British Intelligence Service and discovers exactly what the price of freedom really is, while the real story of Lydia Alken’s murder provides the biggest shock of all.

A memorable saga from one of the best-loved writers of the genre. Sheelagh Kelly gives us the pain and determination of the people of York during the Second World War.
Nell is just eighteen when war breaks out, and she’s keen to do her bit – which means leaving her safe office job and starting to train as an auxiliary nurse. This will bring her into contact with women of all ages and from very different parts of society – and it will also bring her face to face with the grim realities of war. But she has a secret to comfort her – a soldier she’s met and fallen in love with, who’s promised to return to marry her.
The unthinkable happens: bombs fall on York. And for Nell, this coincides with a dreadful tragedy that she can share with nobody, and which brings life-changing consequences.
Sheelagh Kelly writes with deep feeling, evoking all the warmth and hardship of a city under siege – the city in which she was born and which she knows so well. This will thrill her numrous fans and win her many more. You can purchase this family saga today for £2.99.
