Read a book day recommendations from Winston Solicitors

Even legal eagles need down time, away from all those technical books and law precedents. Some may prefer the feel of holding an actual book and others insist that an 'eReader' is the only option. As long as you're reading something. Educational experts do say that even reading the back of a cereal packet is better than not reading at all.

We asked the team what they'd been recently reading and would they recommend?

Blindsighted by Karin Slaughter 
Crime thriller, serial killer, not to be read alone or in the dark!
I Know Who You Are by Alice Feeney
Excellent book - thriller with a good twist 
Our House by Louise Candlish 
It is a story about a husband and wife, Bram and Fi Lawson, and the sale of their house. However, it is much more than that. Was he unfaithful?, was she unfaithful? Is he even who he says he is and whose house is it? The novel has a very interesting style, with no single  narrative voice. Instead it is told in fragments back of forth between Fi’s blog and Bram’s suicide note. Even though you know from very early on that it is a suicide note it doesn’t stop you wanting to read on and find out what happened between them. The story is full of twists and turns and is a well told tale. I would recommend it to everyone.
The Bastille Spy by C.S.Quinn 
A compelling adventure set on the cusp of the French Revolution. A female spy, outwitting the machinations of a mad French King and his deadly courtiers. Plenty of colourful characters set in a rich period drama, with the style of an ‘Indiana Jones’ adventure. A great holiday read.
Something in the Water by Catherine Steadman
If Catherine Steadman sounds familiar it’s probably because she’s best known as an actress – but don’t let that out you off.  The book draws you in from the first page and keeps you guessing right until the end. The book starts with Erin digging a grave and explaining why it should be six feet deep and how hard it is, physically, to keep digging and digging. But who or what does she want to bury?
On honeymoon to Bora Bora Erin and her husband, Mark, go scuba diving and discover something in the water.  It’s sheets and sheets of paper but all the writing is smudges or washed away but they think it marks something.  Mark dives down and discovers a light plane and something which could potentially change their lives for ever. Should they try to return the property to its rightful owner or keep it for themselves, and does anyone else know about their find?
From Bora Bora to London, Norfolk and Switzerland we learn  how to wipe security footage, open “secret” bank accounts and why you should never really trust anyone. Especially those who know your secrets.
