Necessary Secrets – New Zealand fiction from Greg McGee. On his 70th birthday Dennis Sparks contemplates his own mortality – and then his three adult children narrate the year ahead – each with their version of their family’s story of love, loss, money worries, drugs, domestic violence, and the myriad things that make up Kiwi lives. It’s really good; set in Auckland.

Beautiful Bad by Annie Ward. Psychological thriller. Ian and Maddie appear to have the perfect life – then after a nasty accident she starts attending therapy, where some of her anxieties about their shared history cast a shadow over things. But no one was prepared for a frantic call to 911 from their nice suburban home – what could have gone so wrong?
