  • Loved this . . . I was gripped from the first page and eked out the last chapters as I didn't want to leave the smoky clubs of 1950's Manhattan. A stellar line-up of brave, complicated and bright women . . . prepare to lose yourself in a tale of love, loss and deceit

    Sara Cox, Radio 2 DJ and host of BBC 2’s Between the Covers
  • I so enjoyed <I>That Green Eyed Girl</I>. The atmosphere of city heat and dust and stifling apartments was so vividly evoked. And I was equally invested in both narrative strands . . . I was hooked from the beginning

    Clare Chambers, author of Small Pleasures
  • The mystery at the heart of this novel had me hooked from the start. I spent a weekend sitting in 1950s bars, listening to jazz with Gillian and Dovie, then skipping ahead twenty years to walk the same streets with Ava, remembering the awkwardness of being a teenager. Heartbreaking but with a satisfying ending, I will remember this book for a long time

    Louise Hare, author of This Lovely City
  • I loved this. Dovie and Ava are both such compelling characters and the evocation of time and place so strong - I was irresistibly drawn into their stories. Sad, rage-inducing and uplifting - a very emotional read

    Harriet Tyce, author of Blood Orange
  • Not only assured, pacy and involving, but both heartbreaking and heartmending

    Hope Adams, author of Dangerous Women
  • I've spent the whole day reading this mesmerising book. Such a devastating, gripping story and stunning, powerful writing. Once I started I just could not stop

    Aliya Ali-Afzal, author of Would I Lie to You
  • This book ... wow. So beautifully written, you feel you're there in New York, feeling everything the characters feel. A very original story that will stay with me for a long time

    Frances Quinn, author of The Smallest Man
  • I've just spent a couple of days in mid-century Manhattan, dancing in underground jazz clubs and feeling the sweat of summer on my skin . . . A smoky page-turner

    Jodie Chapman, author of Another Life
  • Wonderful . . . utterly transported me to the jazz bars and stuffy apartments of New York, while telling a moving and compelling story about a time in history I knew little about

    Neema Shah, author of Kololo Hill
  • The pacing is perfect, the voice is striking. Highly recommend.

    Nikki May, author of Wahala
