The Layover

A mechanical malfunction strands a flight attendant with her worst enemy in The Layover by Lacie Waldon. After 10 years of jet-setting as a flight attendant, Ava is ready for a fresh start, but she has to make it through one last flight. Unfortunately for her, the cocky ex-pilot Jack Stone is also on her flight, and when the plane is forced to make an emergency landing, she'll be stuck with him for the entire weekend.

The Maidens

Alex Michaelides's latest thriller The Maidens will draw you into the world of a university secret society and a charming professor who might also be a killer. At least that's what group therapist Mariana believes, and she's prepared to do whatever it takes to bring him down.


Shutter by Melissa Larsen makes an excellent case for not accompanying a mysterious filmmaker into the woods. After losing her father, Betty Roux packs up her whole life and moves to New York, where she lands the lead role in indie director Anthony Marino's latest project. For one month, Betty is supposed to live in an isolated cabin on a remote island with just the small crew, but it doesn't take long for her to realise that Anthony isn't telling her everything about her role.
