THREE HOT READS
The mind can play strange tricks when you’re trying to block out the past and RODDY DOYLE’S book SMILE captures this beautifully and tragically. A recently divorced man runs into an old school friend who triggers memories – good and bad – of their Christian Brothers school.
Nobody writes funny, real, vulnerable characters like
MARIAN KEYES, THE BREAK
and is classic Marian. Amy’s loving-but-distant husband announces he’s off backpacking for six months leaving her to pick up the pieces – and have some life-changing experiences of her own.
A young Nancy Mitford solving mysteries in the 1920s – what could be more entertaining?
THE MITFORD MURDERS is by JESSICA FELLOWES,
author of the official Downton Abbey guides, so the upper class detail is spot on and the plot is tremendous fun.
