A.M. Homes Set - 3 Books (collection)
Gillian Flynn Collection- 3 Books (collection)
Two powerful books that earned international acclaim and bestseller status, Tuesdays with Morrie and The Five People You Meet in Heaven are included in this Mitch Albom Collection, which acts as a perfect introduction for those who are new to this thoughtful and poignant author. Filled with philosophical insight and fascinating reflections on life, Albom’s writing is the stuff of fiction but leaves you willing his every word to be true. Written with great feeling, these are thought-provoking and inspirational reads.
A prolific writer acclaimed by the likes of Philip Larkin, Gladys Mitchell created mystery crime thrillers that were full of surprises, sometimes a little odd or bizarre, but always immensely readable. This marvellous eight-book collection showcases some of her strongest work, including classics such as Death at the Opera and The Saltmarsh Murders. The creator of polymathic psychoanalyst Beatrice Adela Lestrange Bradley, better known as Mrs Bradley, these books are sure to delight anyone with an interest in crime thrillers and also offer strong views on the society of the time in which they were written.
Jonathan Coe delivers something quite different. His is a unique voice that is deeply intelligent as well as funny, quirky and brilliantly observed. The Rotters' Club skilfully captures the 1970s with its strikes, terrorist attacks and growing racial tension. The Dwarves of Death is a clever and funny novel that manages to marry murder with music, while The Accidental Woman is the sensationally good tale of a woman unable to find any purpose or direction in her life. Coe discusses serious issues with a supreme satirical wit.
Dan Brown Collection - 3 books (collection)
This collection also includes a sneak preview excerpt of Dan Brown's long-awaited new novel Inferno, published on 14 May.
Three gentle romantic novels set in the beautiful (and fictional) East Devon market town of Talyton St George, Cathy Woodman's books are sure to appeal to fans of both Katie Fforde and James Herriot. Cathy brings her own experiences as a vet in real life beautifully to the page in Trust Me, I'm A Vet, while the other two books are also fantastically frothy. The Sweetest Thing sees new resident and cake baker extraordinaire Jennie Copland realise things are not quite as easy as they seem in the country, while Must Be Love sees the already under-pressure Maz Harwood discover she's pregnant. This is a collection of three charming countryside romances.
