Island of Secrets book against a background photo of Crete

Henpicked’s book of the month for July 2017…

Island of Secrets book against a background photo of CreteWell The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood gave us a lot to think and talk about in June – did it make you want to watch the series on TV? Please check out the reviews.

A huge thank you to our book champions and to the Henpicked community for their comments and reviews. If you have any further thoughts please drop them into Disqus at the bottom of the article.

And it’s summer, so maybe time for a holiday read and according to the reviews on this one, it’s that and more. Something to unwind in the sun with or even on the beach.

It’s a new book by a new author, bit of sun, intrigue, drama and history too. Our book of the month for July is Island of Secrets by Patricia Wilson.

Here’s what readers are saying:

Island of Secrets is a book full of raw emotions, family vendettas, hidden secrets and three very strong women. It’s a book I enjoyed very much and one which fans of Victoria Hislop and Debbie Rix are sure to enjoy.’ (NetGalley Reviewer)

‘So well written and utterly heartbreaking . . . a story that needs to be told’ (NetGalley Reviewer)

‘Page-turning, enthralling and heartbreaking by turns.’

‘Made me laugh and cry, just couldn’t put this book down.’
