Read and recommended by Good Housekeeping…

We’re delighted that Good Housekeeping’s army of readers have been enjoying some of our recent Bookends titles – these brilliant books have all been read and recommended by the Reader Review panel. How many have you read?

The Art of Baking Blind by Sarah Vaughan

‘This was a lovely mixture of Delia Smith, Waitrose and Great British Bake Off — with a twist.’

The Saffron Trail by Rosanna Ley

‘From the first sentence I was hooked and couldn’t put the book down. I could almost smell the saffron and could imagine I was in Morocco.’

A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman

‘I chuckled out loud from the start and yet the book also moved me to tears. There is an “Ove” in all of us or someone we know. Definitely a book to share. The moment I had finished it, my husband was waiting to read it- intrigued by my laughter and tears!’

Lillian on Life by Alison Jean Lester

‘I really enjoyed this book and didn’t want it to end. I totally related to Lillian and her life as a single woman, and finished it wanting to know more. Thank you for a really interesting and pleasurable read.’

The Rocks by Peter Nichols

‘It’s a truly absorbing book — a story that I could sink into and really lose myself with the characters and their beautiful island.’

If You Were Me by Sheila O’Flanagan

‘I loved this book. I was gripped from the first page and really related to Carlotta. I couldn’t wait to find out how it ended. Having spent time in Seville last year it brought back memories of my holiday. I am now going to try some of the author’s other books.’
