Eileen’s Top Reads of 2016

So many books, so little time. Here are my favourites that I’ve read this year.

I notice that a lot of the Fiction are sequels, or part of a series.

In fairness to all the authors I have put them in alphabetical order. (I am a Librarian after all!)

Jeffrey Archer Cometh the Hour – This is the 6th volume of the Clifton Chronicles.   

Alex Brown The Secret of Orchard Cottage – Intriguing family story.The Secret of Orchard Cottage

Ann Cleeves The Moth Catcher  –  The 7th story in the Vera Stanhope series, as good as the first six!         

Lindsey Davis The Graveyard of the Hesperides – The 4th mystery in the Flavia Albia series, she is the daughter of Marcus Didius Falco.

Carola Dunn Superfluous Women – The 22nd Daisy Dalrymple mystery, I’ve read all of them!

Emma Hannigan The Perfect Gift – A story of family, of hope and despair.

David Lagercrantz The Girl in the Spider’s Web – The 4th book  in the Millennium series, continuing on from Stieg Larsson’s first three.The girl in the spider's web

Freya North The Turning Point – A wonderful family story, I can’t lie, I did cry when reading this.

Wilbur Smith Pharoah – The 6th book in the Egyptian Series featuring Taita, history and myth entwined to produce a very readable story.

Lucie Whitehouse Keep You Close – A very suspenseful novel, read it if you dare.

Jacqueline Winspear A Dangerous Place – The 11th book in the Maisie Dobbs crime/thriller stories. A series well worth reading.
