Richard & Judy’s Instant Summer Bestsellers

The Bookseller reports on the latest picks from UK TV stars Richard and Judy, which are:

The Memory Keeper’s Daughter, by Kim Edwards
Getting Rid of Matthew, by Jane Fallon
Salmon Fishing in the Yemen, by Paul Torday
How to Talk to a Widower, by Jonathan Tropper
Relentless, by Simon Kernick
The Other Side of the Bridge, by Mary Lawson
The House at Riverton, by Kate Morton
Savage Garden, by Mark Mills

Booksellers applauded the eight choices. “It’s good to see two first-time authors in Paul Torday and Jane Fallon on the list, and it’s not full of your typical household names either, which is great,” said Torbay Bookshop owner Matthew Clarke. and Canongate sales and marketing director Jenny Todd has “fingers crossed” for the summer. “It’s still early, but the high street has been a bit quiet. It’s all felt quite slow to start, and I think most publishers are waiting for the market to kick off in full.”
