Gone Tomorrow by Lee Child
Folly by Alan Titchmarsh
The Pyramid by Henning Mankell
The Guernsey Literary & Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer
Personally, I love the novel by Mary Ann Shaffer. Folly comes in a close second.
In 1946, Guernsey is just emerging fom German occupation. Food and books are scarce, and the members of a book club, formed to outwit the Germans, are hungry for contact with the outside world, Enter Juliet Ashton, a budding London based author. In an exchange of letter with the islanders, she hears stories hilarious, moving and tragic, which draw her to a new and joyous life on the island.
This is the first and last novel to be published by Mary Ann Shaffer, who was prevented from finishing it when she fell ill in 2007. It was taken up and completed by her devoted niece, Annie Barrows, also a writer, and on publicationn it swiftly became a bestseller in several countries. Charming and distinctive.
Harry Ballantyne and Richard King, key players in the world of fine art dealing, started out as friends at Oxford, then became rivals and, finally, arch enemies. It was all to do with a beautiful woman, Eleanor, who once posed on horseback for a bewitching equestrian portrait by the famous English painter, Alfred Munnings. The feud between Harry and Richard's decendents might have gone on forever, except for fate - their grandchildren, James and Artemis, fall in love. This beguiling saga about lost love and family inheritance unravels a mystery that begins when three students make a visit to the Essex countryside in 1949...
For the other two novels, you have to buy this book first to find out!
