Books for the perfect summer escape!

There really is no better way to unwind than with a book in one hand and an ice-cold drink in another. Whether you are jetting off on holiday or staying at home to bask in the sun, a great read is a summer essential. From fantasy and true crime to romance and sci-fi, the possibilities are endless! The question is, where to start? Instead of tediously trawling through the bookshelves, why not check out one of our recommendations?

Rebecca's recommendation – A Summer on the Riviera by Rachel Barnett

Bella Mason has always dreamed of a life far beyond her quaint hometown and slow-paced existence. So, when she secures a job on board a private yacht, she embraces the opportunity for a change of scenery.

Meanwhile, Felicity Kennedy – renowned actress and all-round celebrity – has had enough of the non-stop lifestyle that comes with fame. So, she packs her bag and jets off for a family trip to the Riviera.

Enjoying everything that paradise has to offer, both Bella and Felicity are blissfully unaware of what they will discover when their paths eventually cross – adventure, romance, friendship and secrets.

A Summer on the Riviera is the definition of a perfect holiday novel. Whether you’re in the garden or on the beach, Barnett’s first novel will get you into the spirit of summer. It will remind you of drawn-out evenings, salty sea air and a gentle breeze – of the happy memories that keep us going all year round!
