I love the intense psychological family thrillers eg, The Little House, about in-laws from hell.....and 'jealousy and revenge' eg, The Love Of My Life....Can anyone recommend anything remotely similar, but not really chick lit humour? Thanks

If you're interested in 'historical' fantasy, try this medieval Scottish epic:

The Blackgloom Bounty
The Regents of Rhum


That's how a Hollywood producer has described THE SCYTHIAN STONE series. Episode 1, THE BLACKGLOOM BOUNTY is now available in the UK Kindle format (or hardcover if you prefer) followed by episode 2, THE REGENTS OF RHUM.

Highly touted in the U.S. national media, this series appeals to the whole spectrum of fantasy readers but particularly to those seeking an extended story arc, a bit of romance and more 'realism' in their fantasy fare. Try a free sample on your PC, iPhone or Kindle Reader.

The Number 3 Mystery Book

I'm a brand-new author; by day (and often night...) I'm a freelance copywriter -- when the work is done I write novels. I'm not going to tell you this is my first -- it isn't. This is probably the seventh novel I have written. If you'd like to read about a book inspired by 'The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time', and a novel which explores issues which most novels shy away from -- while also being entertaining and enlightening -- follow the link or see my blog at

If not, well, I wish you a good day anyway. Thanks for taking the time.

Belfast Girls, a sparkling Irish romance cum action-packed thriller, is currently at No. 6 on contemporary romance, and has been in the top 100 for Women's Literary Fiction on UK Kindle for the last four months, usually in the top 20, and often in the top 10. Three girls from different religions, the men in their lives, glitter and danger side-by-side.

Try my trilogy - suitable for men as well as women! Great holiday reads. I've been told they steam up the sun specs! ;-)

My cross genre Rock'n'Roll trilogy, spanning a forty year period, is available for 70 pence each. Some say Contemporary Romance; others say Family Sagas. Whatever you want to call them, there are some great 5 * reviews on Amazon from men too!

Three Steps To Heaven - set in the swinging sixties.

'Til I Kissed You - set in the New Romantics and Live Aid era of the eighties

Always On My Mind - set in 2001/2002

This is one of my favourites. It's about a brother and sister coping after their mother dies in an accident. There is a psychological aspect to it, it is definitely a thriller and it has its moments of intensity. I know I loved it and I reread it all the time - Saturdays Are Gold - Signed edition - the author Pierre Van Rooyen has signed a bookplate which is included in the file to make it a signed ebook.

Hi Helen, if you are still checking on this thread then I have to say that LEP's suggestions are the most appropriate going by your post. Karin Alvtegen is also a favourite of mine, her novels are stand alones and are very tense psychological thrillers. Another Swedish author Karin Fossum is also worth looking at. You will have discovered that you can ask for a particular type of book but then get loads of authors plugging their's, most of which bear no resemblence to what you have asked for. For example I don't see how someone can make the leap from 'tense psychological family thrillers' to historical fantasy. It would appear that most of them don't even read the OP and if they do don't understand it. Also they all seem to be Kindle books which makes the assumption that you have one, maybe you do, but if not then the posts are a waste of time. Unless a poster states they want e-books I always assume that they are looking for the old fashioned style books. Anyway don't give up on the threads you really can get some great ideas.

How about The Cambridge List? It's a comedy thriller about the world's least menacing sociopath seeking revenge amidst the ivory towers of Cambridge University.
