A trio of reads to enjoy with your chocolate eggs…

A long weekend. Bliss. Here are a trio of reads from three of our favourite authors for you to enjoy along with the chocolate eggs.


Tilly Bagshawe is the internationally bestselling author of eighteen previous novels. A mother of four, Tilly and her family divide their time between their homes in Los Angeles and London. Educated in France as a child, and a hopeless romantic at heart, her latest novel, The Secrets of Sainte Madeleine, is set deep in the French countryside, inside the walls of a family chateau. Here,  a remarkable legacy awaits. Elise would do anything to inherit Sainte Madeleine, the vineyard that’s been her family’s home for  generations.  Alexandre, can’t bear to see their capricious father put the vineyard in jeopardy. Laurent Senard’s love for Elise was planted at Sainte Madeleine long ago. Sweeping through the 1920s to WWII and beyond, this is the story of the Salignac family – the loves that bind them, the secrets that threaten to divide them, and the chateau that will always call them home. Jonathan Ball

Lucy Foley is a No.1 bestselling author. Her contemporary murder mystery thrillers, The Hunting Party and The Guest List, have sold over a million copies worldwide, and her latest thriller – The Paris Apartment – hits the local bookshelves this month. Welcome to No.12 Rue des Amants. A beautiful old apartment block, far from the glittering lights of the Eiffel Tower and the bustling banks of the Seine.  Where nothing goes unseen. And everyone has a story to unlock. The watchful concierge. The scorned lover.  The prying journalist. The naïve student. The unwanted guest.  Something terrible happened here last night. A mystery lies behind the door of apartment three. Jonathan Ball


Sarah Lotz is an accomplished screenwriter and award-winning novelist whose previous work has been translated into more than twenty languages. She lives on the Welsh borders with her family and far too many rescue dogs. Sarah has also lived in South Africa.

This weekend we’re reading her latest – Impossible.
Nick: Failed writer. Failed husband. Dog owner.
Bee: Serial dater. Dress maker. Pringles enthusiast.

One day, their paths cross over a misdirected email. The connection is instant, electric. They feel like they’ve known each other all their lives. Nick buys a new suit, gets on a train. Bee steps away from her desk, sets off to meet him under the clock at Euston station. Think you know how the rest of the story goes? They did too . . . But this is a story with more twists than most. This is Impossible. Jonathan Ball
