Richard and Judy Search for a Bestseller Winner: Claire Gradidge
Richard and Judy’s latest winner of their Search for a Bestseller Competition is Claire Gradidge with her gripping wartime mystery; The Unexpected Return of Josephine Fox. Set in 1941, England, we meet Jo Fox in the midst of the Second World War as she returns to her hometown of Romsey for the first time in twenty years. Jo arrives shortly after an air raid on the town, and rescue teams are busy searching the wreckage of the local pub for the bodies of seven missing people. But when an eighth body is discovered, Jo is drawn into the mystery of who this stranger is and how she ended up meeting her death in a town where no one seems to know who she is. Filled with dark family secrets, twisting turns, and a lead character that Richard and Judy describe as ‘surprisingly modern, feisty, gutsy and resolute’; Claire’s debut is one you won’t want to miss.
