Every morning and evening, Zoe Walker takes the same route to the train station, waits at a certain place on the platform, finds her favorite spot in the car, never suspecting that someone is watching her…

It all starts with a classified ad. During her commute home one night, while glancing through her local paper, Zoe sees her own face staring back at her; a grainy photo along with a phone number and a listing for a website called FindTheOne.com.

Other women begin appearing in the same ad, a different one every day, and Zoe realizes they’ve become the victims of increasingly violent crimes—including murder. With the help of a determined cop, she uncovers the ad’s twisted purpose…A discovery that turns her paranoia into full-blown panic. Zoe is sure that someone close to her has set her up as the next target.

And now that man on the train—the one smiling at Zoe from across the car—could be more than just a friendly stranger. He could be someone who has deliberately chosen her and is ready to make his next move…

I am SO excited about this book. Claire Mackintosh’s debut novel, I Let You Go, had me right from the first page and I loved it so much (even though it was horrifying and extremely intense) that I just might have to buy this book when it’s released, even though I’m trying to not buy books this year. I just know I’m going to love this one and need it on my shelf! Claire Mackintosh definitely writes a mean thriller!

“You go through life thinking there’s so much you need. . . . Until you leave with only your phone, your wallet, and a picture of your mother.”

Marin hasn’t spoken to anyone from her old life since the day she left everything behind. No one knows the truth about those final weeks. Not even her best friend Mabel. But even thousands of miles away from the California coast, at college in New York, Marin still feels the pull of the life and tragedy she’s tried to outrun. Now, months later, alone in an emptied dorm for winter break, Marin waits. Mabel is coming to visit and Marin will be forced to face everything that’s been left unsaid and finally confront the loneliness that has made a home in her heart.

I read Nina LaCour’s book Everything Leads To You a few years ago and LOVED it. Her writing is absolutely beautiful and I’m definitely in love with her book covers. This one sounds so intriguing and I’m hoping it’s just as beautiful as her last book.

From the bestselling author of The Secrets of Happiness and Summer at Shell Cottage, this is a story about love, loss and starting over.

Number 11 Princes Square looks just like the other houses on the Brighton seafront: a Regency terrace with elegant sash windows, a winding staircase and post piled up in the hall for its tenants. It might be part of the city’s history, but it’s also a place of brand new beginnings.

Georgie has followed her childhood sweetheart to Brighton but is determined to carve out a career in journalism for herself. Throwing herself into the city’s delights is fun and exciting, but before she knows it, she’s sliding into all kinds of trouble…

Charlotte’s in the city for a new start, hoping to keep her head down and somehow get over the heartbreaking loss she’s suffered in the past. But Margot, the stylish old lady on the top floor, has other ideas. Like it or not, Charlotte must confront the outside world, and the possibilities it still holds.

A terrible revelation sent Rosa running from London to start again as a sous chef. The work is gruelling and thankless but it’s a distraction at least… until she comes up against the stroppy teenager next door who challenges her on her lifestyle choices. What if Rosa’s passion for food could lead her to more interesting places?

As the three tenants find each other, it’s as if a whole new chapter of their lives has begun. The House of New Beginnings is a moving and uplifting novel from bestselling author Lucy Diamond.

After reading Lucy Diamond’s book The Beach Cafe, I am in love! Not only are her books adorable from the outside, but she writes such great stories and great characters that I really can’t wait to read this one! I’m a little sad that this one doesn’t have the same cutesy cover as her other books (though maybe that will come), but it sound SO good!
