Eve Chase’s ‘The Vanishing of Audrey Wilde’ has dual narratives, one set in the present day and one during the heatwave of '59. It’s a story of how three teenage girls, on holiday in Oxfordshire, are slowly drawn into the disappearance of their Uncle and Aunt’s daughter, Audrey, five years before.
‘A New Map of Love’ by Abi Oliver is about an antiques dealer who, with his loyal dog, Monty, by his side, spends a summer getting far more embroiled with village life than he ever intended.
