Two weeks, 1500 miles and three opportunities for her husband to save his own life.

It wasn't about his survival - it was about hers.

An addictive psychological thriller for fans of The Wife Between Us and Gone Girl.

Shattered by the discovery of her husband's affair, Liv knows they need to leave the chaos of New York to try to save their marriage. Maybe the roadtrip that they'd always planned, exploring America's national parks, just the two of them, would help heal the wounds.

But what Liv hasn't told her husband is that she has set him three challenges. Three opportunities to prove he's really sorry and worthy of her forgiveness.

If he fails? Well, it's dangerous out there. There are so many ways to die in the wilderness. And if it's easy to die, then it's easy to kill too.

If their marriage can't survive, he can't either.</font>

Biographical Notes

B.E. Jones is a former journalist and police press officer, now a novelist and book obsessive. She was born in a small village in the South Wales valleys, north of Cardiff and started her journalism career with Trinity Mirror newspapers before becoming a broadcast journalist with BBC Wales Today.

She has worked on all aspects of crime reporting (as well as community news and features) producing stories and content for newspapers and live TV. Most recently she worked as a press officer for South Wales Police, dealing with the media and participating in criminal investigations, security operations and emergency planning. Perhaps unsurprisingly she channels these experiences of 'true crime,' and her insight into the murkier side of human nature, into her dark, psychological thrillers set in and around South Wales.

This Is Yesterday

Rose Ruane
Authors:
Rose Ruane

It is twenty-five years since Peach did the things she did that summer. Things that have kept her distant from her family and left her alone in London, a woman caught between effacing and flourishing. So when she is woken one night with news that her father is in intensive care she only knows one thing clearly: whatever happens at the hospital will dredge up a history she has spent twenty-five years trying to ignore.As Peach tries to confront the crisis at hand and endure her sister's brittle accusations, her brother's simmering resentment, her mother's passive fury - the line between past and present starts to dissolve, taking her fragile sense of adult self with it.Spiked with dark humour and written with caustic energy, This Is Yesterday is a story of memory and the body; of art and desire; about the bracing ambivalence of familial love. It is a story of becoming.
