Reading a book can be very much like a relationship. Sometimes you need warmth and wisdom (try Maeve Binchy, Cathy Kelly or Rosamunde Pilcher), sometimes you’re in a sexier mood (Jilly Cooper or Veronica Henry); sometimes you want to explore serious issues (Joanna Trollope or Libby Purves); there are times when you just want to throw your head back and have a good laugh (Maria Beaumont or Mavis Cheek) or for a bitter sweet tale then Bring down the Moon by Eva Le Bon shouldn't be missed.
