Four Books to Tuck in to This New Year

If you’re finding a bit more time on your hands after a busy Christmas and New Year, January’s book selections have a selection of murder, the monarchy and healthy new recipes!

The Queen of Poisons by Robert Thorogood

Everyone is desperate to know...Who is the killer? And can they be found before they strike again? Geoffrey Lushington, Mayor of Marlow, dies suddenly during a Town Council meeting. When traces of aconite - also known as the queen of poisons - are found in his coffee cup, the police realise he was murdered. But who did it? And why? The police bring Judith, Suzie and Becks in to investigate as Civilian Advisors right from the start, so they have free rein to interview suspects and follow the evidence to their heart's content, which is perfect because Judith has no time for rules and standard procedure. But this case has the Marlow Murder Club stumped. Who would want to kill the affable Mayor of Marlow? How did they even get the poison into his coffee? And is anyone else in danger? The Marlow Murder Club are about to face their most difficult case yet.

Charles III – The Making Of A Modern Monarch by Robert Hardman

From the author of the definitive Queen of Our Times comes a monumental biography of the new monarch, assessing how his long life in the Royal Family has prepared him for such an important role.

The dramatic story of the new king's evolution over the past year from Prince of Wales to King Charles III, from one of the most acclaimed royal biographers writing today.

No British monarch has had a tougher act to follow. Now, after seventy years of waiting and preparation, King Charles III is not just the head of the most famous family in the world. He is the custodian of a thousand-year-old institution which must redefine its place in the digital age while others insist on rewriting the past.

With unrivalled access to the king, the royal family, and the court, leading royal authority Robert Hardman brings us the inside story on the most pivotal and challenging year for the monarchy in living memory. From the death of Elizabeth II through to the ancient spectacle of the Coronation, from the rise of a new Prince and Princess of Wales to the latest "truth bombs" from the Sussexes, this is the story of the making of a monarch.
