You'd think he'd run out of things to say but David Starkey keeps coming up with more and more fascinating stuff about Henry VIII. Whether you share his fascination for the Tudors or not this makes for a great read about our greatest king.
Coben writes stunning, stand-alone, psychological thrillers and a series of novels featuring Myron Bolitar and his violent friend Win. Until now I have found the Bolitar novels inferior to his psychological thrillers. I say … until now for this is a truly gripping page-turner, full of red herrings and violence. The plot is very involved and leads to a totally unexpected shock ending. Drugs, pornography, family involvement, murder and mayhem, it’s a terrific OTT American fast-paced read. First rate. Comparison: Michael Connelly, Robert Crais, Jonathan Kellerman.
The note is chilling, but Marc sees only one thing: the chance to save his daughter. And, haunted by deception and deadly secrets - about his wife, about an old love, and about his own past - he vows to bring Tara home ...at any cost.
Reviewed on Richard & Judy on Wednesday 24 June 2009. A story of two couples and the relationships that build between them. Although the book may start off slowly it draws you in and gets you thoroughly hooked. A great read for a book club with plenty of strands to discuss.
July 2009 Debut of the Month. A tale of small-town America with some wonderful characters in the present and even more going back over eight generations. The periods flow back and forth as Willie researches her family in search of her father’s identity, and what a family it is – hypocrites, philanderers, murderers and spendthrifts mixing with upstanding citizens and faithful spouses, story after story wonderfully told and blended … and then there is the monster in the lake! Glorious stuff. Comparison: Alice Hoffman, Carol Shields, Louise Erdrich.
March 2009 Book of the Month. As with her first novel, His Other Lover, this is chic-lit with a dark twist. It’s about what happens when friendship turns sour. She’s very good at putting a thumb on a bruise and pushing until it hurts. Comparison: Linda Green, Jane Fallon, Jane Moore.
March 2009 Debut of the Month. A big, sweeping, romantic adventure of half a century of turbulent Russian history beautifully told. It pulls at the heart strings while informing, it forces you through the pages and remains with you long after. Revolution, passion, betrayal, full of hope and horror, the agony and the triumph of a bitter period, it is a very fine work indeed, recommended to both genders of any age. The author, after all, is a renowned historian and this is his first novel. Magnificent. Comparison: Tom Rob Smith, Robert Harris, Rose Tremain.

Shortlisted for the William Hill Sports Book of the Year 2009. A vivid portrait of the Sport of Kings. It tells the fascinating story of a champion racehorse and the era in which he raced. His influence is such that, 200 years later, ninety-five per cent of horses racing today are his male-line descendants.
Supernatural romance is all the rage, with vampires to the fore. The erotic attraction of the sons and daughters of Dracula has always been strong but this collection of brand new stories in an erotic vein brings a whole new dimension to those fascinating creatures of the night with stories ranging from New York to Moscow and Venice and adds much flesh to the generous lashings of blood. Chilling and sexy.
January 2015 Guest Editor Harriet Evans on American Wife... Ooh, this book is so good. I’m saving it to reread for when I really need it. It is so absorbing, so sweeping, and yet it is also so intricate and beautifully written. It is a really important book I think and it should have won every prize going. (If it had been written by and about a man I bet it would have). Alice Blackwell is a quiet girl from the Midwest who happens to become First Lady and this is her story and if you haven’t read it, I envy you coming to it for the first time. Sarah Broadhurt's view... This is an absolute joy to read. It follows the life of an ordinary American girl, with a teenage tragedy hanging over her, who falls for an ambitious, rich and privileged boy whose sights are on the White House. It is actually based on Laura Bush’s life, I’ve no idea how faithfully for it concentrates on her small-town upbringing by a hardworking mum and a wacky lesbian grandmother. We go right through to the White House, but this is not a political novel, it is a magnificent family drama. Comparison: Audrey Niffenegger, William Kowalski, Jonathan Franzen.
