Recommended by Feige

The Paris Daughter is a historical novel set in 1939 and follows two friends with baby girls. When the war breaks out and one has to flee, she leaves her daughter with the other. After the war she returns to find her friend and daughter gone. This book was very predictable but it was predictability done well. An enjoyable read that kept me wanting to continue and find out how all the pieces would fit together in the end.

Recommended by Zissy

The Summer Skies is a delightful romcom that follows Pilot Morag as she is forced to return home to take over her grandfather’s local route in his rickety old plane. One day the weather takes a turn, forcing Morag to crash land on a remote island inhabited by a recluse. It’s full of charm, humor and just the right amount of mishaps to make it the perfect escapist romcom read.
