To all Jo’s wonderful readers…

Jo sadly passed away in July 2020 but her writing lives on through Gilly Middleton who worked with Jo as co-writer and is now bringing Jo’s many original ideas to fruition.

Gilly lives in Sussex, where she likes to go to the theatre and to watch cricket, and feels very privileged to have worked with Jo. Jo often said of her books, ‘I could never imagine a single day without writing. It’s been that way since as far back as I can remember.’

We hope you will continue to enjoy reading them.
All the best, Team Jo Cox

Latest book…

A cry for help can tear a family apart…

Bella can’t wait to be married to her fiancée Sidney, and dreams of the day she will walk up the aisle to be given away by her widowed father, with her bookish sister Alice as her bridesmaid.

Their lives are disturbed when they receive a letter from their fifteen-year-old cousin Millie. Taken in by her austere aunt and uncle when her parents were killed in an accident, Millie says she is being badly treated and pleads to be rescued.

When the two sisters take a trip to find out the truth, things take a troubling turn. Millie is brought home to live with them, and soon they are questioning this act of kindness. Does their teenage cousin just need some love and kindness? Or is she a troublemaker, with only mischief and malice on her mind…?

Don’t miss the gripping new drama from the nation’s favourite storyteller.
