This week’s ‘summer’ bestseller list is full of some fabulous new releases! Normally we’d be scouring the shelves for those beach reads – this year they may be garden reads under an umbrella, or even in front of the fire, but there’s plenty to keep you going!

Andrea Mara’s All Her Fault has gone straight into the original fiction top 10 at No 4, and the overall top 20 at No 6, and it’s a gripping twist page turner that will keep you hooked! Here’s the blurb:

ONE MISSING BOY.

Marissa Irvine arrives at 14 Tudor Grove, expecting to pick up her young son Milo from his first playdate with a boy at his new school. But the woman who answers the door isn’t a mother she recognises. She isn’t the nanny. She doesn’t have Milo. And so begins every parent’s worst nightmare.

FOUR GUILTY WOMEN.

As news of the disappearance filters through the quiet Dublin suburb and an unexpected suspect is named, whispers start to spread about the women most closely connected to the shocking event. Because only one of them may have taken Milo – but they could all be blamed . . .

IN A COMMUNITY FULL OF SECRETS, WHO IS REALLY AT FAULT?

Here’s the overall top 20. Data Supplied by Nielsen BookScan taken from the Irish Consumer Market week ending 24th July 2021:
