We’ve got some great holiday reads available at the Book People right now, and all are just perfect for anyone who wants to sit back, relax and get lost in another world, either on the beach or just sitting at home. With books from famous and new authors, there is sure to be something to suit your taste in fiction.

Shadow of Night, written by Deborah Harkness, is the sequel to A Discovery of Witches and again follows the forbidden love and adventures of Diana and Matthew. After the coexistence is threatened, the pair travel back in time to London in 1590, but maybe they’re not as safe as they think they are… For something a bit lighter, why not try the Molly Keane set? Five tales full of wry observations, elegant writing and decidedly black humour.

Tania French’s Broken Harbour is an atmospheric and poignant novel that has been heralded by the likes of Harlan Coben. Tense but also exciting, this is a psychological thriller that finds detectives dealing with a case where evidence appears to point in two different directions. Santa Montefiore’s The Summer House is also a fascinating summer read. After her husband passes away, Antoinette’s world falls apart. Even more so when she discovers he may not have been the man she thought he was. Frances Osborne’s Park Lane is set in Edwardian London and tells the story of two women who dream of breaking free from tradition and obligation.

We have a real bargain for any fans of Adele Parks. You can get a three-book set from her back catalogue for just £4.99. Intelligent fiction that is perfect for the modern woman, these books are all very different but are all very warm and moving. Michael Palin’s The Truth is a warm and witty slice of fiction telling the story of Keith Mabbut – an ordinary man on an extraordinary adventure that takes him to India.
