It is always wonderful to see our authors succeed internationally, and we are so proud to see The Maid by Nita Prose and Looking for Jane by Heather Marshall continue to triumph in the Canadian charts week after week!

The Maid, the sparkling debut novel by Nita Prose, has spent every week since its publication earlier this year in the Canadian charts.

We were thrilled when The Maid instantly claimed the No.1 spot in The Globe and Mail and The Toronto Star bestseller lists, and continued to take the top position for an astounding ten weeks across Original Fiction and Canadian Fiction. The Maid offers a fresh take on the cosy murder mystery, with a loveable and unlikely detective at the helm. Utterly charming and escapist, Canadian readers fell in love with Nita’s writing and her brilliant heroine, Molly.

The Maid is at No.5 in the Canadian charts this week, and we are delighted to see Nita’s novel continue to capture readers! For those of you who have yet to read The Maid, you can buy your copy here.

Meanwhile, Heather Marshall’s breath-taking debut, Looking For Jane, is celebrating its eighth week on the Canadian bestseller list.

Having debuted at No.1 in both The Globe And Mail and The Toronto Star, it made an instant impact for its emotional message: A reminder of the treacherous treatment of young mothers forced to give up their newborns at Government led maternity homes in the 60s, and a heart wrenching look at how abortion has changed in the country in the years since.

This week, Looking For Jane features at No.1 in the Historical Fiction chart, No.3 in Canadian Fiction, and No.7 in Hardcover Fiction – an incredible feat that we are hugely proud of Heather for achieving!

And for UK fans eager to read, don’t forget that the eBook is available to download now, with a beautiful paperback edition due to hit the shelves in August. Why not preorder a copy here before you forget.

This is a tremendous achievement, Nita and Heather – we cannot congratulate you enough!
