Reads for over the Easter holidays.?


Orange Blossom Days by Patricia Scanlan

(Simon & Schuster, approx €14.99, out now)

Feel-good doesn’t come much better than Patricia Scanlan’s Orange Blossom Days, set around a Spanish holiday apartment complex just opened by new owners. Its guests arrive to get away from it all, but as friendships form and lives intertwine, they’ll soon discover it’s not quite the holiday heaven they expected.

My Not So Perfect Life by Sophie Kinsella

(Bantam Press, approx €16.49, out now)

Katie Brenner has the perfect life: a flat in London, a glamorous job and an enviable social life. And it’s all on show on her super-chic Instagram feed. But what do you do when your life (despite the filters) is really a lie? Witty, wonderful and a perfect depiction of the ?perfection pressure? so synonymous with everyday life.

The Good Mother by Sine?ad Moriarty

(Penguin Ireland, approx €16, out now)

Kate just has a handle on a new life for herself and her three children when her twelve- year-old daughter Jess is diagnosed with cancer. Moriarty’s tale of a family coping with upheaval and a sick child is warm and moving, even when it’s heart-breaking.


This article originally appeared in the April issue of IMAGE magazine, on shelves nationwide now.?
