THESE brilliant books are making a splash just in time for your summer hol.

We’ve got 50 copies to give away!

Those people by Louise Candlish

The award-winning Our House was one of our fave reads of last year, and now the author returns with another wry, dark look at middle-class suburbia.

The residents of Lowland Way are proud of their smart street, with kids playing out and their parents gathering for drinks and gossip.

Then outsiders Darren and Jodie move in and ruin everything – until one morning the police arrive with terrible news…

With a plot to rival any Liane Moriarty novel, this is clever and compelling.

Out Thursday (£12.99, Simon & Schuster)

Something to live for by Richard Roper

If you loved Eleanor Oliphant, try this brilliant new read.

Andrew works for the council, picking up the pieces when people die alone and making sure they have a funeral.

On his first day in the job he tells a white lie about having a wife and kids – when the truth is the only thing waiting for him at home is his model railway.

It’s not until a new recruit starts working with him that he realises he’s forgotten how to live.

We completely fell in love with this funny, uplifting debut.

Out Thursday (£12.99, Orion)

Tell Me Your Secret by Dorothy Koomson

You’ll be gripped by this tense, twisty thriller.

Ten years ago, journalist Pieta was kidnapped by a man known as The Blindfolder who’d only free her alive if she kept her eyes shut for 48 hours.

Now he’s tracking his victims down again – and killing them – and police detective Jody must stop him.

But both Pieta and Jody have secrets that could change everything…

Out Thursday (£12.99, Headline)

Bring me sunshine by Laura Kemp

Charlotte Bold is content compiling the traffic reports for an award-winning London radio station ready for the DJs to read out.

But then she’s forced to leave behind her carefully ordered life – and successful boyfriend – and move to work at tiny Sunshine FM on the Welsh coast.

There she must confront her biggest fears and finally find her voice.

It will make you giggle, cheer and feel good – basically, it’s a hug in book form!

Hugely recommended.

Out Thursday (£7.99, Orion)

After the end by Clare Mackintosh

This one comes with an emotional warning, but we promise it’s worth the tissues.

Pip and Max are faced with an almost impossible decision about their little boy.

Unable to agree about what course of action is best for their beloved son, their lives start to go in different directions.

Cleverly structured to look at both sides of a heartbreaking situation, this thought-provoking book draws upon the author’s experiences, and manages to feel both personal and universal.

Out Tuesday (£12.99, Sphere)
