I have really enjoyed 'I Let You Go', 'The Girl on the Train' and 'What Laura Saw'. Now I need another great book to read. Any suggestions based on liking the three I listed?

Thank you. I love mystery style books. I especially like psychological thrillers with plot twists.

You might like this The Franchise Affair by Josephine Tey. It's old - originally published in 1948, but I found it gripping. It ticks the box for psychological thriller, plus a big helping of period detail.

"Her" by Harriet Lane, the author of the top class read Alys Always?

Funny Girl

Thank you. I'm going to download the free samples of these and see which one grips me.

I would second the "Her" recommendation, and I'm half way through Alys Always and enjoying that too

I'm reading The Darkest Hour by Tony Schumacher - bought on a total whim after reading a short guardian article. It's completely different to my usual type of book but very good so far.

The husband's secret is also great. As is the outcast (sadie jones).

Alys, Always or Her. Both by Harriet Lane. Very well-written compared to similar in genre.
