Summer is a great time for reading, when many of us have more time for it, whether while lazing in the garden or lying by a pool, or sitting on a plane or train. I’ve found that books are even more satisfying when I can spend longer chunks of time reading them.

I’ve chosen for you a wide variety of novels set in Dorset, my very favourite county. Adventure, history, romance, mystery, new books, and classics: there’s something for everyone here. Happy summer!
