Richard and Judy recommend Dawn French's novel


Dawn French's latest novel is among the new books Richard Madeley and Judy Finnigan are recommending to readers this summer.

Titled According To Yes, Dawn's third novel follows an eccentric primary school teacher from England who heads to The Foreign Land of the Very Wealthy - otherwise known as Manhattan's Upper East Side.

Other titles recommended by the couple's Book Club are The Girl On The Train by Paula Hawkins, Sweet Caress by William Boyd, A Dictionary Of Mutual Understanding by Jackie Copleton, Rogue Lawyer by John Grisham, The Girls by Lisa Jewell, Those We Left Behind by Stuart Neville and Cathy Rentzenbrink's The Last Act Of Love.

Judy said: "I love every one of these titles. I know we always say it, but this really is a fantastic list. The books are all page-turners - guaranteed to keep you entertained, mystified and engrossed throughout the summer. Wherever the summer takes you, put your feet up and enjoy these wonderful titles."

To celebrate the summer 2016 list, WHSmith has revealed a new, fresh look to the Book Club, both in store and on its website

Readers will also be able to download podcasts featuring interviews with the writers.

Richard said: "Interviewing the authors for our podcast episodes is always engaging and reveals elements that we didn't know about the authors, their inspirations and influences."
