Hello from us, the Cronin family. A mother & daughter-in-law team who decided to fulfill one of their dreams and open a book & gift shop. We pride ourselves on offering something a little bit different that you can't find in other high street retailers.

The I-5 Killer - Ann Rule
If you like books about true crime or serial killers, or even just horror in general, then anything by Ann Rule is for you. She has a way of writing that fully sucks you in, devouring each page like you haven't been fed in weeks. And then she'll smack you in the face by reminding you that this isn't some twisted fairy tale that she's writing about. It's true. These monsters were people who walked amongst us. She doesn't write with the usual tecnical jargon that some writers do, she explains what's going on on your level. Anything by Ann Rule is a "Must Read" and The I-5 Killer is no exception, - Lianne
