Molly & the Cat Café by Melissa Daley

 
A heart-warming and uplifting story of one small cat's big adventure to find a place to call home. 
 
When two-year-old tabby, Molly, loses her beloved owner, her world falls apart. Re-homed with three cat-hating dogs, she decides to take matters into her own paws and embarks on a gruelling journey to the nearest town. As Molly walks the cobbled streets she begins to lose all hope of finding a home . . .

Until one day she is welcomed into the warmth by caring café owner, Debbie.
But a local battleaxe is on the warpath and she is determined to keep out newcomers, especially four-legged ones. It looks as if Debbie will have to choose between the café and Molly.

Will Debbie and Molly be able to turn their fortunes around to launch the Cotswolds' first Cat Café?

The Forgetting Time by Sharon Guskin

 
 An gripping mystery that will keep you turning the pages right through the four-day weekend.
 
Janie's son is her world, and it breaks her heart that he has nightmares. That he's terrified of water. That he sometimes pushes her away and screams that he wants his real mother. That it's getting worse and worse and no one seems to be able to help.
 
In desperation, she turns to someone who might have an answer - but it may not be one she's ready to hear.
 
It may also mean losing the one thing she loves more than anything. Noah.
