Portrait photo of Louise Candlish

Hello and welcome! Website, nerve centre, launch pad – or perhaps just the place to pause and wonder if this is the same Louise Candlish you were at school/university/work with a hundred years ago. (Yes, probably. Isn't it horrible - and somehow also a relief - to suddenly be so old?) I am the bestselling author of nine novels, including two 2013 releases, The Disappearance of Emily Marr (a moody emotional mystery) and The Island Hideaway (an intense shot of Sicilian sunshine). For news on these and other musings, check out my blog. I love to hear from book groups and readers and I always try to reply to everyone in my own words - so please do get in touch.
