In October 2022, adults will be treated to a novel that never fails to stir the soul. The novel tells the story of a beekeeper and her son. After the two return to their native place to restart their lives, deadly secrets about the son are uncovered, and the mother fears she never knew her son.

Young adults can expect a rom-com from the Dial A for Aunties author, which involves a girl who travels to Indonesia from LA in an attempt to experience her roots. However, events lead to her getting involved with one of the wealthiest people in the land, but is it love, or is it just for show?
