You can't beat the magic of finding a good book. It's that brilliant feeling when a plot grips, twists and excites in a way you'll remember for a long time.
Whatever your tastes, you know when you’re onto a winner because it reminds you instantly that reading is one of life’s great pleasures.
With that in mind, we proudly present to you our 2020 Summer Reading List - a collection of the best page-turners which we think will captivate and entertain, providing the perfect tonic to today’s social challenges.
From French food frolics to Scottish murder mysteries, and children’s tales to adult fiction, we think there’s something for everyone.
A lot has happened since Angela Burdett-Coutts donated a thousand books to our staff library in the 1850s, but her literacy legacy still burns bright. We hope this year’s book recommendations showcase the very best of the Coutts family today, capturing the diverse tastes of our clients and colleagues alike.
