The Bedside Table Stack #8

This month's Bedside Table Stack includes four fantastic reads that I managed to plow through at record speed. If you're looking for easy summer reads that offer a little more depth than your average book I can recommend all of the following.

Saving Grace by Jane Green. I had never read anything by Jane Green before and was really impressed with this novel. Grace's husband is a famous novelist with an equally famous temper. When their family assistant quits Grace struggles to keep her family and household together. Their saving grace comes in the form of Beth an organisational queen who quickly makes herself indispensable to both Grace and her writer husband. But as wonderful as Beth appears to be, Grace can't help hide her suspicions over some of Beth's behaviour and is she crazy or is Beth trying to steal her life?

A Place Called Here by Cecelia Ahern. Sandy Shortt has been obsessed with finding things that have gone missing. Whether it's her lost socks or a misplaced pen, ever since at ten years old a childhood classmate disappears, Sandy has been on a mission to find the lost and misplaced. When Jack Ruttle contacts Sandy to help him solve the disappearance of his brother he is shocked when it appears Sandy has gone missing too. Sandy stumbles upon the place where lost things goes and suddenly finds she desperately wants to find her own way home.

The Girl You Left Behind by Jojo Moyes. In 1916 a French artist Edouard Lefevre leaves his wife to fight at the Front. Left behind in their village Sophie's beautiful portrait painted by her husband is noticed by the new Kommandant. In a bid to save her husband from the workers camps, Sophie will risk everything to be reunited with her husband. A century on Sophie's portrait is gifted to Liv by her late husband, but the paintings history throws Liv's life and any chance of new love into contention.

Time and Time Again by Ben Elton. Hugh Stanton, ex-soldier and adventurer has been chosen for a daring and mad assignment to stop a single bullet and end a century of death and destruction. Travelling back to 1914, Hugh must stop the Great War from beginning if he has any hope of changing history for the better.
