Welcome to Dotty's Book Club

We are very excited to launch a Book Club at Dotty’s Teahouse. Every month we will host an evening to discuss that months book. We will also be inviting the authors to come along and hear your questions and thoughts on the story. Every book is an adventure, come unwind with us and chat over a delicious Dotty’s brew and maybe some cake?

Join Dotty’s Book Club!

We meet on the first Thursday of every month to discuss our favourite book from Dotty’s Library.
The evening is an informal relaxed affair to relax and natter over a cuppa whilst discussing the book of the month.
For our first three sessions we are lucky enough to welcome the authors to join us to answer any
questions and give us more background on their writings. Come and give it a go, every book is an adventure.

It’s free, just register your attendance so we can keep in touch and make plenty of cake!

‘A stunning debut that kept me guessing until the final, heartbreaking twist’ Claire Douglas

‘Addictive, twisty and beautifully written’ Alice Feeney

A fast-paced and action-packed thriller, full of twists and turns you won’t see coming. It is the most gripping suspense mystery you’ll read this year.

They said it was an accident. Her mother knows they’re lying. But the truth comes with a price…


Abi Knight is startled awake in the middle of the night to a ringing phone and devastating news – her teenage daughter, Olivia, has been in a terrible accident.

Abi is told that Olivia slipped and fell from a bridge into the icy water below, and now she lies silent, dependent on life support.

But then Abi sees the angry bruises around Olivia’s wrists and learns that her sensible daughter is in fact three months pregnant . . .
