“The Caretaker” by Gabriel Bergmoser 

On the run from a controlling husband and his underworld associates in Melbourne, Charlotte has adopted a new identity and found a job as an off-season caretaker in a tiny, deserted Alpine resort. However, there are dangerous people looking for her – so, she must lay low and remain in solitude. Although she tries to convince herself that she’s safe – that she got away – strange things are starting to happen around the resort. Soon, she begins to realise that every escape route is being sealed off one by one. This is a game of cat and mouse – with deadly consequences.

“The Daily Dad” by Ryan Holiday

Instead of a parenting book you read once as a sleep-deprived new parent, The Daily Dad provides 366 accessible meditations on fatherhood, one for each day of the year. Drawing quotes from history, literature and psychology, bestselling author Ryan Holiday – a father of two himself – has crafted a daily practice that will help dads old and new to find inspiration and advice. Each entry offers a memorable lesson on being the role model your child needs, rooted in timeless principles.

“The Perilous Promotion of Trilby Moffat” by Kate Temple 

With the past safely restored to the past, Trilby Moffat is looking forward to sitting down to a big slice of cake and a good crossword puzzle. But she’s about to find out that the job of Time Keeper is never done and the future has other plans for her… extremely perilous plans.
