We are thrilled that seven of our authors have made the bestseller charts across the globe!
John Lewis-Stempel's Woodston has entered the hardback non-fiction chart at number 10. From the Paleozoic volcanoes that stained its soil to the Land Girls of wartime, John charts a sweeping, lyrical history of Woodston: the quintessential English farm. Taylor Jenkins Reid's Malibu Rising has kept it's place in the top-ten holding firm at number 7 in fiction hardbacks. Malibu Rising transports us to Malibu in August of 1983. It's the day of Nina Riva's infamous end-of-summer party, but by midnight the party will be completely out of control... The Soho Agency represent Taylor Jenkins Reid in the UK and Commonwealth in association with Park & Fine Literary and Media. Sophie Kinsella's Love Your Life, which was also a bestseller in hardback fiction, is number 5 in the paperback fiction charts. Ava meets a handsome stranger on a writing retreat in Italy. But when they return home, reality hits. As disaster follows disaster, it seems that while they love each other, they just can't love each other's lives. Can they overcome their differences to find one life, together? Following the storming success of Spitfire and Lancaster, John Nichol's Tornado is number 3 in the non-fiction hardback charts. John tells the incredible story of the RAF Tornado force during the First Gulf War in 1991; the excitement and the danger, the fear and the losses. It is an extraordinary account of courage and fortitude.
Over in Ireland Carmel Harrington's The Moon Over Kilmore Quay has lasted a remarkable 6 weeks in the top-ten fiction chart. Bea has grown up in the heart of the Irish community, always hearing stories of home. When she discovers a letter from her younger self, written years before, it sends her deep into her own family history. When Bea uncovers a shocking secret, it takes her back across the water to Kilmore Quay, where – finally – long-buried truths will come to light. But fate has one last twist in store… Nick Foster's Murder at Roaringwater was also a top-ten bestseller in Ireland for the month of June. For six years, Nick has been piecing together the life and death of Sophie Toscan du Plantier, who was brutally killed outside her cottage in the remote West Cork countryside in 1996. He also developed an ongoing ‘friendship’ with the Englishman long-suspected of her murder, Ian Bailey, and his partner, Jules Thomas, the couple at the centre of the case.
Finally, international bestseller Michael Robotham's When You Are Mine is number 1 in the Australian fiction bestseller chart. Philomena McCarthy has defied the odds and become a promising young officer with the Metropolitan Police despite being the daughter of a notorious London gangster. Called to the scene of a domestic assault, she rescues a young woman, Tempe Brown, the girlfriend of a decorated detective. The incident is hushed up, but Phil has unwittingly made a dangerous enemy with powerful friends...
Congratulations to all our wonderful authors.
