Hachette has acquired ANZ rights to two books by Natasha Lester to be published in 2022 and 2023.

Hachette Australia acquired local rights as part of a global deal made in conjunction with Hachette New Zealand, Hachette Book Group USA and Little, Brown Book Group in the UK. Rights were acquired via Kevan Lyon at Marshal Lyon Literary Agency.

The first novel, To Lillie, From Paris, will publish September 2022. Set in Manhattan, Switzerland and Paris before and after WWII, the book follows a former spy who tries to begin a new life in France working as publicist for the just-launching House of Dior.
