Books for the Beach 2016

At last, it’s that time of year where we can relax on the beach and get stuck into a good book. So what are the books you need to read this summer? Here we’ve pulled out a few of the hottest holiday reads from a few different genres for you to enjoy. 

Crime

John Grisham - Rogue Lawyer

The main character in this novel, Sebastian Rudd, is said to be John Grisham’s most outrageous character yet. He is an unconventional lawyer who has little trust in big corporations. He represents the unsavoury characters that no other lawyer would dare go near, believing that everyone deserve a chance and hates injustice. Rudd works out of a bulletproof van with everything a man could possibly need inside, including an armed driver/bodyguard/golf caddy. 

It’s not until Sebastian represents a prime suspect in an abduction and murder case of a twenty-one year old woman, that everything he holds close to him is threatened - after the suspect lets him in on a dark and terrible secret.

Milly Johnson - Here Come the Girls

Olive, Frankie, Roz and Ven have all been friends since school, and they all had big aspirations with their life ahead of them. Fast forward twenty-five years and sadly none of them had managed to fulfil all of the dreams they once had, including taking that cruise together they promised each other.

Roz cannot show any affection to her loving husband thanks to an ex tearing her trust apart, and has fallen out with Frankie and now will not speak to her. Olive cleans houses to support her extremely lazy husband and mother in law. But now, with thanks to Ven, they are all going on their dream sixteen day cruise, with hopes of reuniting the old group of friends. Along the way there is a range of emotions, from happiness, to anger, to tears, lots of laughter and a rekindling of a summer love. The cruise manages to change each of the character’s lives for the better.
