I've just finished the wonderful The Peacock Summer by Hannah Richell, dual timeframe set in the present day and the 1950s, about a decaying old manor house full of secrets.

Ive just started Summer of Secrets by Nikola Scott, another dual timeframe, this one set in the present day and just before WWII. It’s a book I have to review which will be published on 6 September.

Finally finished listening to London - it's a LONG book. I really liked how he ended it.

I’ve just started via the Pigeonhole app Daisy Belle by Caitlin Davies. It’s a story inspired by and in tribute to Victorian champion women swimmers of the world. It’s off to a great start!
